The addition of interest to the principal sum, enabling you to make interest on your previous interest. For math and financial nerds this is a big deal. It is how thousands of dollars become millions if invested for long periods of time.

This is especially true with incorporating fear foods. Initially it is really scary, but as you expose yourself to these foods and see that you are able to handle them, it gets easier over time. And when you've done enough fear food exposures, the foods you used to be afraid of simply aren't scary any more. Eventually all food becomes neutralized.
