Diabetes in Children is on the Rise

By Martin Grandley

Diabetes! Why Must So Many Children Suffer?

Diabetes, the body's inability to metabolize sugar properly,

is something that most people have to just live with for the

rest of their lives. You can control it, of course, with

proper diet and by taking medication. But the fact that an

increasing number of young children and adolescents are

prone to it nowadays is a cause for concern.

It is not surprising that with the increase in the number of

overweight children and growing obesity problems diabetes

too is growing proportionately. Lesser physical activity

among children Children these days is also creating health


Physical Inactivity, Extra pounds and Stress

Being overweight doesn't help. The extra burden those extra

pounds put on your body weaken its response and ability to

handle stress. And this kind of stress increases manifold,

especially when your body is still growing, and is yet to

achieve full size.

These extra pounds come from a life of physical inactivity

in children, too much time sitting at the computer and at

meals is taking its toll in increased weight. Children's

bodies, already hampered by excess weight, have no way,

therefore, to cope with their diets, rich in fat and sugar.

Very simply put, the body cannot metabolize, or burn, these

high levels of fat and sugar, causing an imbalance that

leads to diabetes in so many children.

You are what you eat

In today's fast paced world, more and more families rely on

easy to cook, processed foods that have a high fat and sugar

content. In the past, our diets contained wholesome and

nutritious foods like fresh fruits and vegetables.

This can place a tremendous pressure on the body. Like the

camel who can take only so many straws, the body can, and

will tolerate many elements of stress. But like the camel

with the last straw that broke his back, too many stresses

interfere with the normal functioning of vital organs, the

liver and pancreas. The result -- disease, maybe even

partial or total dysfunction.

Would you really want to damage something so inherently part

of your nature?

Children will be children, of course, and they can make poor

health choices by eating the wrong foods. But isn't it

really up to families to encourage and incorporate a healthy

lifestyle at home? And when they don't, children are more

likely to fall prey to health problems and are more prone to


At the end of the day, everyone in the family needs to pull

together as one team on the same side -- the side that keeps

illnesses like diabetes and other unhealthy issues at bay.

Most people groan and moan at the thought of healthy living.

But it doesn't'thave to be such a grind. Physical exercise

can be fun when done together as a group. Family members can

take turns in coming up with new and interesting, but

healthy recipes to cook every day. Slowly but surely, the

benefits of healthy living will rub off on everyone.

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)
"The collection is everything which you promised. And more! A superb contribution to the good of the world. Many thanks indeed." ~ R.P. (Georgia, USA)
"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
