Dr Greger says we should be banning sweets that make our kids obese. Parents across the country were so outraged they had laws made to allow sweets in schools. Are we really so blind that we are passing laws to enable our kids to get fat and sick? Think about it. Kids do what they see their parents doing. Kids actually ate more fruits and vegetables with a few tricks mentioned on this video. If you have kids or are a teacher, WATCH THIS VIDEO!

A new study published by Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) says low fat milk does not prevent obesity in children. Milk is not good for anyone (see my BLOGs on milk) but people love to think low fat, low sugar, low everything is better for us. We can just eat a ton of it and it will somehow be OK. The so called diet sodas have not stopped obesity in this country or diabetes. Low fat milk won’t either. These are marketing labels to get your dollars and make you believe in false promises. BEWARE!

As childhood obesity and disease rates increase we must look at most children’s diet. John Board of “The therapy Book” says children are eating more and more fast food, sugary cereals and less fruits and vegetables. He lists ways to help get your children and grandchildren back on tract again. The most important is you showing them a good example by eating a nutritious diet yourself!

What you are eating today is having a serious conversation with your genes. It may be making them upset and they in turn will make you depressed or sick. Your food may be delighting your genes making you well and happy. There are plenty of cases of people remaining healthy well into old age by eating and exercising properly. In my book, Food for Thought, I discuss the fact that diet, exercise, stress and thinking all affect our well being. We live in a fast food, processed diet society. What’s worse is we don’t exercise enough, we are over stressed and we think negatively. We are setting our genes up for failure! You can change your life style. You can be healthy and happy. It’s never easy to start but everyone can do it. Start today and enjoy the rest of your life.
