Jennifer Shearin Group Wellness Coaching: Get Your Head Out Of The Sand

By Expert Author: Celestine Webb

U.S. childhood obesity rates have reached 30%, and could be up to 70% in the next ten years. As of 2007, 2.7 million children in the U.S. are on medications for ADHD. Today’s children are the first generation who are predicted to have a shorter life span than their parents. Up to one in ten children in the U.S. are diagnosed with some degree of autism. Childhood cancer has risen dramatically over the past 20 years.

What’s going on? Could it be the food supply? Processed crap, GMO’s, preservatives, artificial colorings? Water and air contamination? Sedentary lifestyles caused by technology? Any and all of the above, probably.

Why doesn’t someone do something about it? Because the food and pharmaceutical industries, among others, are big business. It’s all about the dollar.

What can I do about it, you ask? Read labels! Don’t eat anything with ingredients you can’t pronounce. Try to avoid things that come in boxes. If you see it advertised on TV, don’t eat it. If it comes to you through your car window, don’t eat it. If you couldn’t make it homemade yourself, don’t eat it. If you COULD make it yourself homemade, don’t eat it and MAKE IT YOURSELF! If it contains high fructose corn syrup or hydrogenated oils, don’t eat it. If it’s genetically modified (most corn, soy, and canola in this country), don’t eat it. If someone wants to give your child medication for being hyperactive (ie. acting like a kid!), tell them to go to hell and let your child be around people who love him for who he is! Get outside! Play! Stop caring what the neighbors think! Plant a garden, and only use heirloom seeds (non-GMO). Support a local farmer and join a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). Stop supporting the big food and pharmaceutical companies. They don’t give a damn about our health, they are in it for the money. Vote with your dollars.
