AUTISM, DIABETES AND
The Root of All Disease Chapter 9
Dr. David Thomas was on key when he said there was an amazing increase in adult-onset of Diabetes. This is probably one of the most alarming statistics that the world faces today, and I believe it is all caused by a lack of nutrition and especially minerals!
Ten years and billions of dollars into the fight against childhood fat, it’s clear that the campaign has been a losing battle.
In 2005, 9.7 million children in the U. S. had a health problem for which prescription medication had been taken regularly for at least three months. This comes from the Center for Disease Control’s “Summary Health Statistics for US Children: National Health Interview Survey, 2005.”
They said health issues such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) continue to rise among children.
ONE IN THREE American kids are overweight
According to a report released in September 2007 by the research group,” Trust for America’s Health,” ONE IN THREE of kids in America are overweight!
Other stats show that the percentage of children who are obese has more than tripled since the 1970s. In 2006, nearly 5,000 teens opted for liposuction, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. That’s more than three times the number in 1998 when experts first warned of a childhood obesity epidemic. All told, some 17 percent of kids are now fat in the United States, which means they’re at or above the 95th percentile for weight in relation to height for their age.
An additional 17 percent are overweight or at or over the 85th percentile. When kids are healthy, they grow to their full potential in their minds, their bodies, and above all, in their spirits. Unfortunately, that's no longer the case. In the early 1980s, I saw one or two kids a year with type 2 diabetes.
“Now I see one or two a month,” says Alan Lake, an associate professor of pediatrics at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Moreover, he says, “evidence now suggests that this type 2 diabetes progresses more rapidly in kids, which means we could be soon seeing 20-year-olds developing severe heart disease.”
High blood pressure
High blood pressure already affects more than 2 million kids in America!
Obesity is hard to outgrow, so about half of elementary school children and 4 out of 5 teens who are overweight will battle the scales and the significantly increased risk of disease for the rest of their lives!
In addition, mothers are going into pregnancy heavier than ever before. As a result, some are gaining excessive weight during pregnancy and are more likely to develop gestational diabetes, which means they are more likely to have heavy babies with built-in weight problems as they mature. As a result, several authorities have warned that today’s youth could be the first to have a shorter life span than their parents. This is outright alarming!
Diabetes seriously increases the risk of developing cardiovascular disease. Even when glucose (blood sugar) levels are under control, diabetes increases the risk of heart disease and stroke, but the risks are even greater if blood sugar is out of control. 3 out of 4 people with diabetes die of some form of heart or blood vessel disease.
Parents are to blame
Much of the children’s obesity problem can be blamed on their parents. Kids who constantly see their parents as overweight and with eating disorders will tend to be the same as their parents because kids emulate their parents! For their children’s sake, parents must be more aware of their inter-sense, which encourages them to over-eat and over-commit to junk foods.
Studies show that children whose parents are overweight are at a high risk of becoming fat themselves.
People are defined by what they pass on to the next generation, so for the sake of their family tree, parents who are overweight most of their lives are failing to contribute to their downline!
A study published in the Journal of Medicine found that, for a child under 10, having an overweight parent more than doubled the child’s risk of becoming a fat adult. Studies have also shown that if a child remains fat by the age of 10 to 14, they have nearly an 80 percent chance of remaining at a dangerously heavy weight through adulthood.
Calcium and Vitamin D
High calcium and vitamin D intake, particularly from supplements, may lower the risk of diabetes by one-third, according to researchers from Tufts University. The study used data from the large-scale Nurses Health Study and related the vitamin D and calcium intake of nearly 84,000 registered nurses to their incidence of type 2 diabetes.
None of the women had diabetes at the start of the study, and few were overweight. After 20 years of follow-up, the researchers wrote in DIABETES CARE, “A combined daily intake of more than 1,200 mg of calcium and more than 800 international units (IU) of vitamin D was associated with a 33 percent lower risk of type 2 diabetes”.
Both dietary calcium and supplements were associated with significantly decreased risks of type 2 diabetes; women who had a total daily intake of calcium greater than 1,200 mg had a 21 percent lower risk than women who had intakes less than 600 mg per day.
supplements are beneficial and necessary
We have got chronic diabetes disease problems the likes of which have never been seen before in the history of humanity. According to this study, it is apparent that supplements are beneficial and necessary.
With obesity comes arthritis. The extra weight and the pounding force from routine activities begin to grind away the cartilage and protective tissue that covers the ends of the bone and acts as a shock absorber. The degeneration of that cartilage is called osteoarthritis, a disease that affects about half of those age 65 and older, says john Kippel, President of the Atlanta-based Arthritis foundation. He says the statistics DO NOT count millions of others who have the disease and never get a diagnosis.
According to the CDC, osteoarthritis cases will virtually explode during the next 25 years as boomers start to develop this age-related disease. They estimate the number of arthritis cases will rise by nearly 40% by 2030.
arthritis is the leading cause of disability
Today, arthritis is the leading cause of disability in America and many other countries. Arthritis already costs the U. S. economy more than $86.2 billion a year in lost productivity and direct medical costs. That price tag will rise exponentially if nothing is done to correct the arthritis problem.
Nothing can be done if we stay on the same track and run the same course we are on today. Drugs WILL NOT fix the problem, no matter what the money men say. That’s impossible! The only chance we have is to change our lifestyles and improve our nutrition; that can only be done by getting more minerals into our digestive systems.
Matters will only worsen if we don’t take health into our own hands and establish corrective measures before it is too late. The CDC says that 25 years from now, one-third of the nation’s arthritis cases will be people ages 45 to 64. They also predict juvenile rheumatoid arthritis to increase rapidly. Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease in which a child’s body mistakenly attacks healthy cells, specifically the cushioning synovial cells in the lining around the joints. Doctors HAVEN'T A CLUE what causes the disease, but some experts think genetic and environmental factors, such as certain virus-related infections, may play a role.
How to prevent Arthritis
There are ways to prevent getting arthritis or slowing it down, even if you already have the disease. If you have gained a few pounds over the years, try getting rid of them. Even a slight weight loss could help a great deal. It is more important to encourage physical activity and limit sedentary. Stay active in the low-impact, common sense way. Be smart and get involved in activities that don’t put extreme pressure on your joints. Walking, biking, swimming, and other low-impact activities can build muscle that supports joints. Avoid or limit soft drink beverages because they contain significant calories. By all means, get rid of that extra weight, and don’t allow yourself to gain more than you already have because each additional pound of fat puts more stress and force on your body’s joints.
As for autism, the link between vaccinations has been highlighted by the Covid-19 jabs. Autism was RARE before WW2, and unseen before 1943. Then came the vaccines.
