Dr Joel Fuhrman suggests that parents that feed their children foods low in nutrients are enabling “slow destruction of their child’s genetic potential.” In light of what we know about epigenetics, poor, nutrient empty foods are switching the wrong genes On and Off. This may be the most abusive thing loving parents can do. They are making their children sicker at earlier ages. You wouldn’t allow your child to do drugs, smoke a cigarette, drive a car, drink alcohol or have sex at an early age but allowing them the wrong foods can be even more deadly! If you are concerned about your children or grandchildren’s well being, start with what goes into their mouths.
