Altoona & Eau Claire, WI–

I ran across the below picture the other day as I was perusing facebook and at first I laughed, but now I don’t know whether to laugh or cry out of sadness for society.

Type II diabetes is one of  the fastest growing diseases of the past 10-20 years.  Now, I don’t know if this poster is for Type I or for both types, but it doesn’t matter much to me.  Our society is sad.  I use to get mad while watching the 5 o’clock national news on TV because of how ridiculous the ads were around the news stories.  Drugs promoting how they can cure your ailments, soda & cereal commercials, etc, etc, etc!  I just don’t watch commercials or advertisements anymore.  They are flat out lies!  Why are we donating money to these groups on the sale of the VERY THING THAT CAUSES IT!  This is absolutely absurd!  Type II diabetes is rapidly growing in children these days.  This disease is COMPLETELY lifestyle related.  Lack of exercise and horrible diets will cause your body to become diabetic.  Our choices determine our health!  It’s OUR choices!

Too many people want to blame their poor health on bad germs or bad genes or bad luck!  The fact is, we are completely in control of our health!  Our genes express what our lifestyle dictates.  Study up on epigenetics to learn more about this “new” science.  We need to own up to the fact that we are who we are because of the choices WE have made.  Not our parents, grandparents or anyone else.

I’m passionate about families!  Will yours be a vibrant, loving, and healthy family?  Take charge and be the best parent(s) in the world for your children by being great role models.  Role model healthy lifestyles!  Walk the Walk.  Today is the day to make a change.  Your family depends on it!
