(Dietary changes should be discussed with a health care provider.)
75% of American children 5 to 10 years of age ALREADY HAVE SIGNS of HEART DISEASE! They are the first generation predicted to have a shorter lifespan than their parents. An active lifestyle alone will not save them and neither will a “healthy” American diet.
This statistic was obtained through a study of autopsies on children in accidental death cases. A similar autopsy study of young military personnel reinforced that seemingly healthy on the outside does not necessarily translate to healthy on the inside.
Assuming the world does not end today, check back in the new year for support keeping those get-healthy through & through resolutions. We’ll start off January FIGHTING hard against CANCER. In February we’ll look at the recipe to literally CURE HEART DISEASE for the young & old alike.
CHALLENGE #18 of 50:
Before the year is out, try eating something you’ve never tried before (get a kid to try it too). It’s good practice for everyone and more fun with family & friends & fancy holiday presentation.
QUOTE of the WEEK:
