It is sad and frightening enough that adults are suffering more and more from chronic illnesses like obesity, diabetes and heart disease. But a very alarming article in Natural News details the fact that the incidence of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease has more than tripled in people 12-18 years old!
You only have one liver – and you cannot live without it so keeping it healthy should be at the top of everyone’s list of health goals. Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is chronic inflammation of the liver. This organ is your main detoxification organ. It helps your body rid itself of toxic chemicals, drugs, etc. Obviously we live in a toxic world but eating a toxic diet is just adding insult to injury. And young people who are more likely to grab fast food and drink sodas and energy drinks loaded with high fructose corn syrup are putting themselves at risk for a (vastly shortened) lifetime of illness!
As a mother of three this truly grieves my heart. The primary reason I do what I do in coaching people and in being involved with Beyond Organic is to offer people – and specifically moms and parents who are the teachers, role models and caretakers of their families – ideas, help, support and options in order to raise healthy, happy, successful children.
Are you aware of the dangers of fast foods and high fructose corn syrup to your children’s health?
