It is sad to me to see so many children being raised on fast foods, junk foods and processed foods off the grocers shelves that have had the nutrition processed out and additives processed in for taste, texture, color and shelf life - and then they may throw in some synthetic petro-chemical vitamins and crushed rock minerals and call it enriched. Reminds me of the old commercial that said "Wonder Bread helps build strong bodies twelve ways". My arse!
Even when one includes plenty of vegetables and fruits, they often come off the grocers shelves with pesticides, low enzymes due to being picked early, artificially ripened and shipped in cold storage cars, and from soil that has been mineral depleted. Given that and all the toxins we have introduced into the environment, it is little wonder that we see so many developmental problems in children these days, even given the propensity of child psychiatrists and other doctors to over-diagnose and over-prescribe.
All organs need optimum amount of a very great many vitamins, minerals, trace minerals and other nutrients, including healthy fats, to develop and function properly. That includes the vital organ known as the brain.
And yes, I'm loving the weather even if it is a bit soggy. I actually had to wear jeans and a long sleeve shirt yesterday evening and last night. I'm sitting here tonight with the windows open and listening to the night critters on my tree shaded lot. We just love our new place nestled among 28 big oak trees.
Time to go hit the back2life back machine and read myself to sleep.
