Are we as Americans potentially condemning our children to an anguished filled life that is overflowing with the complications of Type II Diabetes simply by deciding to give our children certain potentially harmful substances to eat for breakfast?

The question has to be asked of all parents because it has the potential to spark a healthy and meaningful discussion that can be instrumental in saving many lives since most people simply aren’t aware of some of the hidden dangers that they are placing on the kitchen table for their children to consume on a constant and daily basis.

Now before I continue let me just state for the record that everyone isn’t affected by the foods that we consume on a regular basis, which is exactly what the statisticians will argue in defense of the companies that they often represent. However, since we cannot determine beforehand who will be adversely affected by the foods that are being marketed to our children, and that are also being marketed to their often uninformed parents who just want the very best for their children; don’t we as consumers as well as members of the media, have a pronounced responsibility to ask certain questions of the manufacturers and proponents of these foods as well as an undeniable responsibility  to take certain measures to protect our children that lack the nutritional knowledge to make their very own decisions about the foods that line the shelves of their local grocery stores?

My independent research suggests that the problem with Type II Diabetes seems to start for a number of people with the consumption of cereals and especially sugary cereals, which we as consumers are told are good for us, however, combining cereals and milk without coupling them with protein teaches the body to run off of pure sugar and off of a variety of simple carbohydrates that are quickly converted into sugar or glucose. The body will eventually learn to convert all non-protein items into sugar just as soon as they enter the person’s mouth. This causes an immediate spike in the blood sugar, which can eventually become lethal since everyone isn’t able to regulate their blood sugar without medication or without the application of insulin.

Milk and cereal without protein are not the only things to be concerned about because countless independent studies have proven that aspartame is linked to Type II Diabetes, however, this substance is being added to chewing gum that already contains sugar, which causes many to question why this is being done since aspartame is touted as being a hundred times sweeter than sugar.  Is it really necessary to add aspartame to chewing gum that already contains sugar, and if it isn’t, then why is this being done and for what unspoken purpose? Parents must start to ask certain questions of the producers of the foods that we consume on a constant and daily basis, so they can make the very best decisions for their children. Parents must also seek to partner with certain health care professionals that are informed about the potential dangers.

When I was in college the onsite nurse instructed me to start my day off with protein and to avoid eating vegetables and anything else without starting the meal with protein. She also advised me to avoid all sugary substances since sugar has no nutritional value.  This information was volunteered once I signed up for a physical education course. We need more health care professionals like the nurse that I had because if I hadn’t followed her advice then I would most likely be like the millions of Americans that cannot lower their blood sugar levels without medication or insulin.

Additional sources for information on the toxicity of aspartame are EMC 205 Aspartame and Dr. Tenpenny as well as Dr. Brackett.

While there’s certainly been much debate about whether or not 12/21/2012 is literally the end of the world as we currently know it, there are several noted authorities that should be consulted when it comes to planetary matters, and one such authority is NASA.

As an organization that comprises the best and the brightest scientific minds that the world has to offer, NASA has never hinted at the possibility that the world is going to come to an end on 21 December 2012, which should be of some comfort to those that are stockpiling food and water in anticipation of a worldwide cataclysmic event of epic proportions.  There simply isn’t any concrete evidence that suggests that our way of life is going to come to a screeching halt on 12/21/2012, which is only a little more than ten days from today.

However, fear generates profits and there are those that have built their entire careers around the Mayan Calendar and its purported doomsday prophecy, which no one seems to be able to confirm.  Today, there are multiple books and DVDs that one can purchase and that do a spectacular job of forecasting the end of the world, however, the ten million dollar question that has yet to be answered is what will happen to the individuals that have devoted their entire careers to 12/21/2012 when everyone is still here on 12/22/2012?

Surely these individuals haven’t contemplated the possible political and financial ramifications and repercussions that may follow once their grandiose doomsday predictions fail to manifest themselves. We’re told that solar flares are going to scorch the earth and that hordes of zombies are going to rise up against the helpless humans while their terrified government officials hide themselves inside a series of pre-constructed underground shelters that have enough food and water to last the occupants for three to four years.  And we’re also told by those that are not paranormal investigators that the mysterious and illusive Planet X is going to appear prior to a group of aliens invading the planet earth.

Well, the respected former museum space science curator and former NASA consultant to Walter Cronkite and to CBS News, Richard C. Hoagland has a very different take on 12/21/2012, and he has stated on many different occasions that the world isn’t going to come to an end. Richard C. Hoagland is an authority when it comes to space and science and he would definitely know if the world were going to suddenly come to an end.

For most people that follow mainstream science 12/21/2012 is simply the beginning of the December Solstice.
