Your child will live a life 10 years shorter than yours

1 Feb

Diet related disease is the #1 Killer in the United States of America. We are one of the most unhealthy countries in the world.  

The last 4 generations of adults have blessed our Children with the destiny of a shorter lifespan than their own parents. Your child will live a life 10 years shorter than yours.

We can change. It starts at home with our families.  The power of food has a primal place in our home.  We need to teach our children how to eat healthy.

Jamie Oliver is on a mission to educate us about food and he is doing an amazing job.  If you don’t know about him, click on his name, and be prepared to be impressed.  His TED talk below will inspire you, educate you, scare you.  It will show you just how little our children know about what they eat.  You need to know.  We need to change.

OPEN YOUR EYES AND WATCH:

Causes of Death in the USA Chart from Jamie’s presentation

USA Killers

Causes of death in RED are diet related.  Heart Disease, Cancer, and Stroke are the top 3 killers in the USA.  They are preventable.

    I couldn’t agree more with this finding; it should come as no surprise when these kids are consuming absolute garbage. The media does a great job in almost making it socially acceptable to be eating, and drinking, these toxic products. Great post and I look forward to sharing more from you:)

      It’s frustrating how ignorant Americans are about the food they eat. I only hope that word spreads quickly. Thank goodness for people like Jamie Oliver who have the ability to reach so many with this powerful truth.

      I will keep plugging away via my blog. Every little bit counts.

    Truly horrifying! We have such poor poor eating habits and the poorest communities har no access to fresh produce. There are kids who dot even know what a cucumber is. On that note, saw this today on twitter:
