Food Marketing to Children – A Health Risk Needing Attention

Food Marketing to Children works for the Food Companies

“Current food and beverage marketing practices put children’s long-term health at risk.” National Academies’ Institute of Medicine, 2006

The overwhelming majority of foods marketed to children are of poor nutritional quality.

Three-quarters (73%) of the foods advertised on television shows intended for children are for convenience/fast foods and sweets.

On Nickelodeon, the most popular children’s television station, ads for foods of poor nutritional quality decreased only modestly from before self-regulation went into effect (2005) to after (2012), from about 90% to 70% of food ads.

Only one-quarter of chain restaurants that market to children have food marketing policies and none of those address toys. Yet, 97% of children’s meals at the top U.S. restaurant chains are of poor

Are You Intrigued By Stem Cell Therapy?

Are you fascinated by stem cell therapy?

Join me HERE  on Facebook starting next Monday December 3rd as I walk you through a week long Stem Cell Rejuvenation Program @sanovivmedicalinstitute in Rosaríto, Mexico.

I will be facilitating my annual Health and Education Retreat with 18 participants and my husband will be doing a week long Stem Cell Rejuvenation Program! (Lucky man 👨)

These are adult, self- renewing multipotent stem cells given intravenously and they distribute throughout the body to areas of damage and degeneration!!! They have the potential to slow the aging process and regenerate and renew damaged cells!

Not all stem cells are of the same quality and potency. At Sanoviv, they have carefully researched potential sources to provide the highest quality cells. Human donors are carefully screened using strict criteria that are matched to each patient. Donors must be young women who follow a healthy lifestyle and are free from chronic conditions. They  use cells derived from placenta and the umbilical cord blood.  These are adult, self-renewing, multipotent stem cells that have the capacity to differentiate into many types of cells, including: cartilage, bone and bone marrow, fat, muscle, and nerve cells—as well as all 10 types of blood cells.

Steve will be a new man! 😟.

The week includes daily medical consultations as well as dental, psychology and chiropractic evaluations. Up to 50 million cells are given and there is an IV glutathione push and high dose IV nutrition !

Spa treatments are included and designed to maximize the efficacy of the stem cell treatments including lymphatic massage and Seaweed Body Wrap ( my favorite )

Stay tuned  HERE for the week adventure !

Stem Cell Therapy is one of the most exciting and promising areas of medical advancement in the 21st Century. These cells can differentiate into many different cell types to regenerate and renew damaged or diseased cells. Stem Cells may help with numerous chronic or degenerative conditions, including: chronic pain, degenerative joints, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, autoimmune conditions, cardiovascular disease, Crohn’s, and more. Stem Cells can repair and rejuvenate tissues damaged by many health conditions. They also have the potential to slow the aging process for improved performance and a more youthful appearance.

Did You Know Your Genes Are Not Your Destiny?

Did you know your genes are not your destiny? I made a short video about the new science of “epigenetics” (or “above the genes”) . Epigenetics indicates that that our lifestyle exerts a profound influence over which of our genes will be turned on (expressed) or turned off (suppressed) through our day.

Our ongoing diet, stress, pharmacy use, as well as our psychosocial, and physical environment all exert influence over our genes. To paraphrase Shakespeare, the fault lies not in our genes but in ourselves.
