I suppose the poster is refering to the forbidden fruit in Genesis account of man's fall.
The account does show that God is concerned with what man takes into himself as food. And this is more than just a physical concern. God had only one commandment really for Adam. That was to be careful what he took into him as food.
What you take in will become a part of you Adam. What you take in will be your constitution and your make up. "You are what you eat."
In that sense God was very concerned. Man is a vessel meant to be filled with something. Man is a "container". And God from the beginning warned man concerning what man took into the container of his being.
Adam was warned not about murder or gambling or racism or stealing. Adam was not warned about cheating on his wife or being proud or being violent or sneaky.
Adam was only warned about what he took into himself. He was only warned about what he took in as food. It was cautioned by God that depending on what he took in as his food, there would be serious concequences.
Adam was created neutral and designed to take into himself God as represented in "the tree of life"
Adam failed to take God into his being and through the tree of the knowledge of good and evil took Satan, God's enemy, into his being.
Man became Satanified.
