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.

Americans Are Saying No to Soda Pop

A study released in 2016 shows Americans are saying no to soda pop!

The study, published in the journal Obesity in 2016 relied on a representative sample of 18,000 children 2 to 19 years old, and 27,652 adults aged 20 and older. They were asked about their beverage consumption over the past 24 hours: juice, milk, sugar and diet soda, coffee and tea, sports drinks, water and alcohol.

The study was published online November 14, 2017 in Obesity. It is the first paper to present the most recent national data on beverage consumption from the Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) which is the gold standard for understanding consumption trends and patterns at a national level.

An analysis of the report reveals that

  1. Per capita consumption of all drinks declined.
  2. Children took in 312.6 drink calories a day in 2014, compared with 473.8 a day in 2003.
  3. Adults took in  341.1 calories in 2014, compared with 425.0 in 2003.
  4. 60.7 percent of children and 50 percent of adults drank a sugary beverage (including soda)  on any given day in 2014, down from 79.7 percent of children and 61.5 percent of adults in 2003.
  5. In every age group, water drinking increased. Sara N. Bleich, a professor of public health policy at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and lead author of the new study, said that this is probably because soda drinkers are switching to water.
  6. The consumption of 100 percent fruit juice also declined, most sharply among adolescents and those over age 40.
