I recently ran across a BLOG, that tells you interesting things about the foods you eat and what you can substitute for a healthy diet. My BLOG looks at things we do in life that can positively or negatively affect our health through the new science of epigenetics. These influences are diet, belief, stress, exercise and thinking. If you are a positive thinker that eats healthy and exercises, you are probably very healthy. The Who Kew About Food BLOG can help you get a better perspective on healthy eating.

Studies on adults are mixed but studies on children, says Dr. Greger, shows less common colds, ear infections and less illness in general. Maybe its the child’s infinite love and positive outlook. Pets may be making them happier and their fore healthier. If you are thinking about getting a pet for your child, it might just pay for itself in improved health and less doctor visits. They may even be lowering the child’s stress levels.

The Pomegranate Nutritional Consulting BLOG recently spoke about the fact that 43 million babies under the age of 5 are overweight. We are in a downward spiral of poor eating, obesity, disease and premature death. And if that is not bad enough it is costing us a fortune in rising healthcare costs and drug costs. How can we allow our new babies to become obese at our hands and start a life of illness and pain? Parents, if you don’t care about your life, at least give your babies a fighting chance! Pfizer Nutrition surveyed doctors on how well their patients knew about infant nutrition. 47% of those surveyed were NOT aware of the importance of nutrition for their babies. We all must get the word out that nutrition makes or breaks your health, your bank account and your happiness.

If I Choose to Eat Unhealthy, It Only Affects Me Right?

No it can affect my children and their children as well. Enzine Articles published an article that discussed the latest science in this regard. It turns out that a person that eats wrong or thinks wrong turns on bad genes and off good ones. These genes can then stay ON/OFF in their children and their children’s children. If we choose to do something stupid and it affects our health, that’s one thing but if it affects our children and grandchildren’s health that is a crime. Should we be found guilty in a court of law for making our children and grandchildren sick? I think not since most of us did not want that to happen. We grow up with ideas of what is good or bad for us and it’s hard to change old habits. We should ensure our schools begin teaching our children to believe they are in control of their genes and can fight old habits and change themselves for the better.
