For the first 30 plus years of my life Pluto was a planet and then one day in 2006 it was not. We grow up with certain mindsets about foods that sometimes serve us and other times do not. It depends on what you learned and picked up on growing up. For some of us fast food was the norm and for others fresh veggies filling the dinner plate was. One will support illness and the other health.
More often than not our mindset is that if someone upstream of us biologically had a disease we are predisposed to it as well. That is a lie, with few exceptions. When it comes to almost all heart disease, diabetes or cancers the fate of our wellness lies squarely on us and our behaviors. The actions include what and how much we eat and drink, how we think, exposure to toxins, and how we move.
We tend to model our parents behaviors around all these things much as we do our faith and how we handle relationships, careers, etc. So the “It’s in our genes” mentality, for the most part, is simply not true.
Great news to many who are living with the idea that moms or grandmas disease awaits them. Now if they eat, drink, think, expose themselves to toxins, and move as they did, it very well might, but they have the choice to shift those habits and outcomes.
Nutritional Truths covers these facts and much more. You are most likely not a victim of genetic fate, you just need to be clear on the facts that will serve you well. If you’re not a fan of paperbacks the book is now available on Kindle. Till next week-Be well!
