The Real Global Scare Makes Some Virus Look Silly

1 in 3 kids will develop diabetes.

Will it be yours?

I have 3 kids….. Which one of mine will it be?  Will it be any of them?

This is a prediction made by the CDC. They estimate that 1 in 3 children born after 2000 will develop diabetes. Many of them before they turn 18.

Parents, are you making your kids diabetic? 

Am I?

Type 2 diabetes, what used to be called adult-onset diabetes, is not an infectious disease. 

You don’t catch it or spread it like the flu. Type 2 diabetes is a condition that results from how we live our lives, the food that we eat, our toxic load, stress, and physical fitness, or lack thereof.

It must be genetic, people say. 

The short answer is no, it isn’t. Are there genes involved in developing type 2 or that make one more susceptible to it? 

Yes, but they do not cause it. 

One still has done the things in life that trigger those genes.

The fundamental process that causes type 2 diabetes also drives obesity and heart disease and is arguably linked with many, if not all, cancers.

It is called insulin resistance, the most prevalent health issue seen by health professionals and afflicting our modern lives.

We must take this seriously, if not for ourselves, then for our children. 

Moderate health changes, fleeting diets, sporadic exercise efforts, and much rationalizing will not save our children from this growing plague.

To reverse insulin resistance and its effects and the hope of preventing it in our children takes action, time, learning, and making a complete lifestyle change for most people. 

Anything less and you will deny your children the chance to grow up as healthy as possible, putting them at risk for diabetes, obesity, heart disease, and maybe more.

My family and I work on this daily in our own lives, with our children, and in practice. 

We work and research how to educate, motivate, and offer opportunities for change in these statistics, and from both sides, yes, it can be avoided.

No medication, series of drugs, injections, easy-cut-back diet plans, magic herbs, or meal replacements will save you from this. 

You have to keep you and your kids from this, and you can.

I have no insightful takeaways for you today; I hope we can all take a moment and grasp the severity of what is happening with this. 

Awareness is the first step.

My friends here’s to being together on this journey and holding a higher standard!

We can do better!
