Think of the children

"Why won't anyone think of the children?" - we are, so should you!

The Australian Government released a "cost of health burden" report in 2013 which estimated that by 2023, the cost of managing our nation's diabetics will surpass our entire current national health budget.  63% of our population is now overweight or obese.  Such is the enormity of Australia's deteriorating health, that our children are the first generation predicted to have a shorter life span than their parents.  They face a lifetime of weight struggles, chronic health problems, sickness, lethargy and an early demise.  Why?  Why is this happening?

Did you know;  The egg that became the embryo that ultimately became you, was formed inside your mother when she was merely a fetus inside your grandmother's womb.  Why is this significant?  Because it means that the nutrition and lifestyle choices your grandmother made are now affecting your health.  Today.  And in the same way, your choices will influence the health of generations to come.  Your lifestyle affects not just your own health, but that of your children and your children's children - and not just directly like in this example, but also through the habits you develop and model to your children and those around you.

 

It's time for change.  Real change.  Generational change.  Be a part of it!
