Today’s Daily Sprout is not for those sitting in the seats (unless you are sitting there with your iPhone, iPad, other smart phone or tablet…
You need to come online and listen.
It is a great story of how a teen, who has been nicknamed “Organic” by his friends, sings the blues of his existence with no real snacks in his house. This is good stuff, as it portrays the strong cultural push to absolutely destroy health. And though he sings from a point of comedy, we know there is something real about the kid being forced into health food.
I think we all lived it, funny though, health food to me was having to eat some grapefruit while I spooned sugar onto my cheerios. Or possibly the two pieces of broccoli on the side of my plate full of spaghetti. Funny how we have gotten smarter, and in that increase in our wisdom, our kids suffer!
Well… so they think. The reality is that we are fighting back from a serious amount of damage done to our DNA. If you have ever heard me speak on epigenetics, this should make a little bit of sense to you. If not, well, you are probably in the dark. Just know this – the DNA that is transcribed to you, is a product of all the life decisions that were made by both of your parents, up until the point at which you were conceived.
Likewise, the decisions you have made before having children, has further effected that DNA. This is the phenotype expression, which is written on the DNA of our offspring. So, considering that your kids might have kids in their early 20’s, which means, they would have made poor health decisions for 9/10 of their life before having kids… which means poor genetics.
I guess, it might just be worth it to force healthy food on our kids. Just in case we care about the future of our world. :)
