We all grow up under the protection and care of our parents. From the time we are born until we leave home, our decisions on what we eat are somewhat controlled by them. Is this fair to us, the unsuspecting inheritors of the world?
As we grow, our tastes are multiplied and changed. We find ourselves eating things that we once disliked and the food that we once enjoyed, we now find as something that our dog wouldn’t even eat. Our values whether moral or immoral affect our habits and therefore change the way we eat. As babies we grow to like pureed peas and carrots. Before you know it, we’re teenaged kids, and always in a rush. We never have time to sit down with our families, and we’re grabbing greasy burgers and fries instead of lean meat and vegetables or salads.
Fifty-million years ago, we would spend all day chasing down what would soon be our dinner and eat the whole thing raw. It may be another three or more days before we found anything else to eat that was just as filling. This on again off again form of consumption would throw our bodies into hibernation, of sorts, slowing down our energy usage until we needed it again. Today, we eat on average, three times a day. Even when we do try to eat healthy, what we do eat is loaded with preservatives and hormones of different types and all sorts of chemicals.
Within our family genes are contained many switches, these switches are triggered by everything we consume, whether it be good or bad. Some of these foods have a more profound effect on these switches than others.
Sometimes it happens gradually. Switches or triggers in one parent may be a recessive gene and a dominant gene in another. All people have the genes that may invariably cause cancer, as well as harm the antibodies and the immune system to fight viruses and foreign organisms. What would happen, for instance if a cancer cell is passed down from a parent and the immune system was made deficient due to cattle hormones in meat and hybrid chemicals in vegetables? The child’s immune system could be weakened to a particular cancer cell and mistakably recognized as a good cell, and is allowed to grow. This would be caused by the parents, even though they have no family history of cancer. Now, who is at fault?
Fifty-million years ago our meat was natural and free of man-made hormones and various chemicals, therefore cancer and different diseases didn’t show up until far later, but is now passed down from generation to generation.
