Have a Merry Healthy Christmas
Have you ever wondered if Santa should put something else in your child's Christmas stocking in place of the items made mostly of sugar? Traditionally, a child may find walnuts, almonds, tangerines and other healthy foods, but in addition there are usually candy canes, chocolate renditions of Santa, a snowman or an angel, and almost always Hershey's Kisses. But there are more and more recommendations from people in the know, such as Dr. Mercola, Nora Gedgaudas, Dr. David Perlmutter and other prominent doctors, authors and researchers, who emphatically say that to do so is a definite NO NO! Why is that?
Well, the reason why is all over the Internet, and you can buy books on it. Primal Body, Primal Mind by Nora Gedgaudas, and the popular book Grain Brain by David Perlmutter, M.D. In a nutshell it comes down to this: The main causative factor for every single disease of lifestyle being experienced by modern man always can be traced to over consumption of sugar. That's obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cardiovascular disease, arthritis, immune system problems, cancer, mental illness, alzheimer's and many more. Even autism and ADHD are linked to sugar and starchy carbohydrates. And the sneaky thing about sugar is that it often takes many, many, many years for the problems to show up, but show up they will.
The human body was never meant to consume the amount of sugar people are consuming these days, and it is killing us slowly in some cases and faster in others. Why continue to support this destructive tradition. Instead encourage Santa to put fun things and healthy things in your child's Christmas stocking. Little toys, puzzles, traditional walnuts, almonds, tangerines, etc.
