You guys... this cancer journey that we are walking with Dempsey has made NUTRITION & HEALTH such a priority for us that we can no longer accept the things of our PC (pre-cancer) life. The farther I take my education, the more I realize there is a war on children and it is being waged on several fronts. One of those fronts is a society of loving people who are not educated in the ways of our "food" supply and the fact that it is Big Business.
The images in this post are items that were given to my children after a sporting event by one of those loving individuals who just doesn't know better. I am grateful for the act of provision but my positivity ends there.
These "snack foods" have ZERO ESSENTIAL NUTRIENTS. If we are what we eat (which is true- what you put in your mouth LITERALLY becomes YOU) then people who eat these items are:
Void of nutrition
Blood sugar destabilizing
...and a bunch of things I cannot pronounce and their bodies cannot recognize.
This is simply not okay.
ONE Gatorade has 21g of processed sugar!! That's INSANE. Not to mention that is 4g (1 tsp) shy of what the major world "health" organizations allow for AN ENTIRE DAY. 😳
Did you know processed sugar causes your immune system to operate at 50% OR LESS for 4hrs? The more sugar consumed the less effective your immune system is- this opens you up for disease/ sickness.
Is it any wonder why obesity is pandemic across the age ranges?
Processed sugar also causes inflammation in your body. Imflammation is one of two main causes of disease (esp autoimmune), the other being oxidation. If your body remains in an inflammed state you WILL end up with a disease!
Please, STOP this war on society's most precious possessions- our children.
Christians, we MUST take better care of these temples of the Holy Spirit!

1 Corinthians 3:16-17
You realize, don’t you, that you are the temple of God, and God himself is present in you? No one will get by with vandalizing God’s temple, you can be sure of that. God’s temple is sacred—and you, remember, are the temple.
the loving but uneducated public
well-meaning but misguided loved ones
... I'm sure the list could get rather lengthy.
