Momma's, WHAT are you feeding your babies????

Today researchers are linking the future health of our children to what we ate during pregnancy AND how we fed our children the 1st part of their lives before puberty! That puts quite a responsibility on us as parents to feed our children what they need for their body's to be in supreme health and heal itself as needed on a daily basis! How can this be done if we don't feed ourselves what it takes to maintain good health?

God made our body's to heal itself, combat toxins and win! Most of this is on auto pilot so we take our immune system for granted! If we were to survey America's families we would be horrified to realize that our kids are NOT eating their vegetables! They spend hours watching TV or playing video games. Too many kids do NOT get physical activity from sports or playing outside, riding bikes etc. (Maybe it's not safe in your neighborhood) and too many kids have no limit on the number of "soda's" they drink per day. Maybe moms are feeding their kids from the drive-thru chicken nuggets or burgers and french fries are their only vegetable! Drinks are soda's or koo-laid or sugar juices with food coloring. Is your child addicted to sugar yet? Who's fault is that? Do they get cookies and donuts or ice cream and no dark green leafy vegetables or fresh ripened fruit in season? NO wonder our kids are joining the 64% of Americans being overweight or OBESE! No wonder our kids have elevated cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL and low HDL counts! No wonder our kids sugars are becoming "pre-diabetic" ranges like adults who have taught their own children to eat as poor as they do! No wonder even our kids liver enzymes are becoming elevated from mass sugar intake when they don't even drink alcohol yet! No wonder their mouths are full of cavities from too much sugar!
The standard american diet is:
34-42 tsp of sugar daily.
40% + FAT daily.
and 3 X the RDA of salt intake.

That is where disease is born folks. This creates an environment for disease to evolve and grow.
Over time, after years of doing something unhealthy we create a disease that matches our bad habits. Our body after awhile breaks down and we have a metabolic illness that can get a diagnosis. Talk about killing OURSELVES! This is really quite simple how it works...getting sick!

Here are some things to think about as we consume inferior foods that DO NOT nourish but in time cause HARM to our health. Digesting these with no nutrients in return:

.............DANGER............ = poison and toxins and results in overworking your liver (your big detoxifying machine!)

White sugar, white flour, white rice and HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP:  This consumption will in short order wear out your pancreas which leads to the diabetes epidemic (pre-diabetes) obesity, clogs your arteries with high triglycerides and weakens you immune system considerably so you may not be able to fight off the cold and flu or free radicals that cause CANCER!  Too much sugar pollutes your liver and shows up in elevated ALT enzymes and then, fatty liver disease and then Liver Cancer?  You pick what your sweet tooth will do FOR you! It's up to US to sabatoge an immune system that God designed to work on auto pilot!

Artificial Food colors, dyes are toxic and do NO GOOD for your body! ie: Fake fruit punch and Koolaids etc.

Over consumption of hormone/steroid poisoned MEAT and Dairy leads to our high FAT intake, lack of fiber overworks the heart, digestive system and is a strong CANCER link. Fried foods are also linked to cancer, clogged arteries and gallstones!  Obesity leads  our FAT to over produce estrogen which creates the proper climate for CANCER to have it's way in the body!

Junk food, processed food and frozen dinners are all over salted, too high in fat and constipating and void of the nutrients needed to maintain HEALTH! These foods are stored away as toxins in our FAT body! Another avenue to obesity and CLOGGING the arteries = HEART ATTACK!

Smoking or tobacco use is responsible for 1/3 of ALL cancers! Our kids suffer from asthma, bronchitis, pnuemonia and other lung problems. Smoker's can look forward to chronic bronchitis, emphysema (COPD) or just sudden death by heart attack if not cancer itself. Milder issues include impotence!

Alcohol use on a daily basis will strip the body of nutrients and weaken the immune system resulting in many forms of cancer, diabetes, liver disease or heart disease over a period of time. Not to mention the severity of drunkenness and what happens getting in a car to drive!

Now our popular starluck coffees and the caffeine abuse overworking our heart and putting us at risk for a cardiac crisis in addition to the 400-600 calories in a big cup full of sugar!
As we add up our special and personal "combination" of daily vices here we will also see the handwriting on the wall at the pending health doom we will have if we don't stop poisoning our liver and pancreas and HEART! You see, we have the power to stay healthy or recover our health after years of a toxic lifestyle. We can change our course and the course of our kids.

Choose life! Choose fresh air, sunshine. Choose water to drink as our body is 70% plus water! We NEED water daily just to flush out our daily toxin consumption! Soda's and coffee and alcohol are very dehydrating! Doing us only harm!
So are you drinking water? Are your kids getting enough water???? (8 glasses per day?)
Our body's REQUIRE the nutrients in 5-9 vegetables and fruits per day to stay healthy! We need a dark green leafy vegetable per day for cancer prevention!
6-9 servings of whole grain or legumes per day!
Do your kids get these things to eat at your house?
Live food from a garden?
Save yourself! Don't get dead or sick!
Change your course today and live! Reverse the curse!
May your children live disease free!
Reduce your risk today!!

Get the facts!

WHAT are we feeding our children?????? If they are already "overweight" (BMI over 30)this is what WE are doing to them under our watch as we feed them out of a paper bag from the drive thru!

What Health Complications are Associated With Childhood (Pediatric) Obesity? As with obesity in adults, childhood (pediatric) obesity increases the risk of developing a number of health conditions and diseases, including those listed below:
Insulin resistance
Type 2 diabetes
High LDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels; low HDL cholesterol
Early onset of puberty
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
Orthopedic problems
Fatty liver disease
Symptoms of depression
Eating disorders
Sleep apnea
Cardiovascular disease
AND increased risk of cancer !

This is serious!

What if we can't beat the "cancer" that overcomes us?

Read the very words of Tony Snow as he first learns of his own colon cancer diagnosis:

I sat by my best friend's bedside a few years ago as a wasting cancer took him away. He kept at his table a worn Bible and a 1928 edition of the Book of Common Prayer. A shattering grief disabled his family, many of his old friends, and at least one priest. Here was a humble and very good guy, someone who apologized when he winced with pain because he thought it made his guest uncomfortable. He retained his equanimity and good humor literally until his last conscious moment. "I'm going to try to beat [this cancer]," he told me several months before he died. "But if I don't, I'll see you on the other side."
His gift was to remind everyone around him that even though God doesn't promise us tomorrow, he does promise us eternity—filled with life and love we cannot comprehend—and that one can in the throes of sickness point the rest of us toward timeless truths that will help us weather future storms.
Through such trials, God bids us to choose: Do we believe, or do we not?

To read this spiritually moving full commentary visit:
The main thing is whether we live here on this earth a bit longer or we join the host of generations that have gone on before us, are we ready to meet the Creator of the universe? What will He think of the ways we brought honor to His name while we had our life here? If we don't "believe" in the eternal life, what if we are wrong? Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth and the life and no man comes to the Father but by me." What if He is right?
