ADULT HEALTH PROBLEMS IN OUR NATION'S CHILDREN
IT'S GETTING TOUGHER TO TELL THE DIFFERENCE
SIMPLY BY LOOKING AT LAB WORK
People grew up in a different era. Everyone ate from a garden. There were no herbicides, pesticides, or GMO's to contend with. Water came from the well and was not CHLORINATED OR FLUORIDATED. The meat was not tainted with ANTIBIOTICS, ESTROGEN, or growth hormones. The milk was not pasteurized, homogenized, or loaded with hormones and antibiotics. Food did not contain additives or preservatives. People were active. Hardly anyone was overweight, let alone fat. My, how times have changed. By the time we got to the Baby Boomer generation, things were heading south in a proverbial landslide. Dr. Russell Schierling from 2/11/2013's WE ARE LESS HEALTHY THAN OUR PARENTS.
Have you ever watched older folks look at young children and marvel at their energy? The Vital Reserves of children, are, by their very nature, virtually untapped. But what happens to those reserves in the child who never eats a vegetable (1/3 of those under 18 years old fall into this category)? What about the kids whose parents let them stay up as late as they desire? What about those kids who spend their days exercising their thumbs (texting, playing video games, and running the TV remote) yet never exercise their bodies or minds? What about those kids who, from an early age, become addicted to drugs, alcohol, JUNK FOOD, porn, or who-knows-what else? What about those kids who end up on all sorts of medications (like THESE) or receive their government-prescribed vaccine schedule in its entirety (HERE)? The body can and will use up massive amounts of its Vital Reserves of nutrients, vitamins, minerals, co-factors, enzymes, mitochondrial energy in the form of ATP, antioxidants, and DETOXIFICATION POWER, just trying to get through the teen years. That's why this post is not really directed at my senior readers.
Don't get me wrong, the peer-reviewed literature shows that any improvement in the areas of WEIGHT, DIET, EXERCISE, etc, etc, can provide a significant boost to one's lifespan and general quality-of-life at any age --- even the elderly. But the truth is, I would love to reach the younger generation before they become seniors. In all actuality, I would love to reach them before they get out of school. Unfortunately, the reality of the situation is that if you think that all too often, this is not happening. And if you think that today's senior citizens have health problems, just wait until you see tomorrow's seniors ---- you know; the folks who did not grow up active or raising a garden. Believe me when I tell you that it's going to get ugly. But other than being forced to contribute your hard-earned tax dollars largely to take care of those who refuse to take care of themselves, you don't have to be a part of that whole scene.

The article in Time dealt extensively with the health problems that millions of school aged kids are going through, which are very different than what previous generations went through. Remember back when the worst health issue kids faced was acne (HERE)? Doctors who were interviewed for the article talked at length about the seriousness of this problem. One thing that really stood out to me was their saying they could not tell the blood work of unhealthy kids from the blood work of unhealthy adults who were 30 - 40 years older. I am not going to go into detail here, but it would be worth your time to take 10 or 15 minutes to read the article.
Listen up folks. You are the parent. If you put any sort of value on your health or the health of your family, it may be time to go to lifestyle boot camp. Fail to change, and you will never be anything more to Big Pharma / Corporate Medicine than what you really are ---- a commodity ---- a walking, breathing, dollar sign ---- a person whose health issues are severe enough that you are looked at by multiple entities as a lifetime source of income. Start clicking the links and educate yourself. Knowledge is power. Learn what it will take to get your family moving in a healthy direction. No go and do it! HEALTHY CHILDREN can be a reality if you change the way you are living.
Oh; for those of you who were wondering, the pic at the top left is of a teenage male.
