Even Governments are Taking the Diabetes Epidemic Seriously

With one headline in Medical News Today spelling it out in no uncertain terms

Health of up to 84% of Children with Diabetes at Risk in England

it is time to take the epidemic proportions of ours and our childrens health seriously. We are eating ourselves to death, and more important we are allowing our children to eat themselves into a shortened, unhealthy lifespan.

Even the British Prime Minister is getting involved in the talk as this is a crisis for any country that it prime resource – people are under attack from their own bad choices.

Even in America they have realised that they (the government and its agencies) are going to have to do something about it:

American Dietetic Association Releases Nutrition Trends Survey”

If governments including our own are worried this much about our kids, isn’t it time we were?

Come on, get your kids out of the house, into the sunshine, breathing fresh air, feed them salads, vegetables, good quality protein sources, fresh fruit, and whole grains in that order. Do you want to satisfy their taste buds now and maybe give them 2 or 3 insulin shots a day for the rest of their lives? Or run the risk of them becoming chronically tired, or developing heart disease, cancer, or other illnesses that come as a result of Metabolic Syndrome.

Or show them how to live – healthy, strong and long?

live a balanced life…
