Healthcare Reform & Obesity Trends

The Question is.... as Healthcare Reform prevails in the USA... where is that going to hit the community in ten years from now when obesity is tragically affecting 70% of the United States right now?  Childhood obesity statistics are reflecting that our children will have a shorter lifespan than we have.  Children are presenting with early stage risk factors relating to cardiovascular disease!!!!  Let's also consider Diabetes, increased risk of cancers and most of all a lack of quality of life.

Although these trends are serious and tragic evaluations of our wellness something can be done.  These are evaluations....  this is the information we need to make a difference and make an impact.  Our younger generations are so valuable... they are our children, grandchildren, daughter's, nieces, and nephew's.  These generations are going to impact our country and the direction of our healthcare reform.  Unfortunately with our current healthcare reform under construction we are going to really need to consider what kind of healthcare will our younger generations receive once these illness's have impacted their quality of life.  We all are very aware we can not live in a "bubble" per say but we can make the CHOICE to take care of ourselves and incorporate prevention into our own daily lives and our families daily lives. 

Considering nutrition and the impact on our environment over the last 50 years our minds need to be open that times have changed.  Fifty years ago you could eat a bowl of spinach and obtain your daily value of iron.  Now it will take 43 bowls of spinach to get that same amount of iron supplement.  I do not know about you... and I like spinach.... I do not want to eat 43 bowls on a daily basis.

Iron is an integral part of many proteins and enzymes that maintain good health. In humans, iron is an essential component of proteins involved in oxygen transport. It is also essential for the regulation of cell growth and differentiation. A deficiency of iron limits oxygen delivery to cells, resulting in fatigue, poor work performance, and decreased immunity.  According to the National Institute of Health.

This is just a piece of how our daily nutritional intake is being impacted and how it affects our body in addition to the environmental toxins in our water, air, and food we absorb daily. 

Just consider... if iron is an essential component of proteins involved in oxygen transport, essential for the regulation of cell growth and differentiation, and all of these processes affect our oxygen consumption and we need 43 bowls of natural spinach to accommodate our body's daily need of iron.  Just imagine how our bodies will benefit from having balanced nutrition.  Optimal Performance!!!  Reality is that our general environment is not conclusive to providing pure nutrients these days.  Just like everything else in our world revolves and evolves our resources of nutrition do also.   We need to evolve with it.

Do you upgrade all of your technology in your home randomly as our world of technology evolves??  Do you own an Ipod, Ipad, or the latest in high definition television?? 

Do you take daily supplements?? Even the most pure organic supplements will not benefit you optimally if the basic components of your body.... the CELLS are not healthy and able to receive and absorb those supplements.  It is absolutely a necessity in today's world that we move into the future and consider the present time acknowledging nutrition and accepting the reality that we need to adapt just as well as we do with the most up to date technology in our homes.  Let's take a stand against obesity and disease and bring the most up to date sources of wellness and nutrition into our homes.

Transformation of your life... IS the secret to your success!!!!
Today is a GREAT day and a day for YOU to make a stand in YOUR home.
