鼎ourage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear.

This is a link to a blog that I found through a friend. Interesting stuff...

2 quotes really stood out:

1. I知 reminded of a lecture given by Sally Fallon at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. She explained that in an animal study they found that a processed, industrialized diet corresponded to a 1st generation with annoying allergies. Nothing major. The second generation under this same diet showed higher rates of serious allergies. The 3rd generation? Chronic disease. The 4th? Infertility.

2. So here痴 what it sounds like to me. (And I might be wrong. I知 just applying some common sense to what I知 reading and seeing in the world.)

I think that the advice to avoid certain foods while pregnant and nursing, or while kids are young, is a big ol Band-Aid. Sure, because if your digestive system is compromised, or if your child happens to have an allergy, you are avoiding problematic foods.

And that痴 a good thing. You gotta fix the immediate problem.

But as far as addressing the real, larger problem with the population as a whole? Can we stop food allergies from forming in the first place? The only answer I see emerging is the same old good advice that seems to be the answer for everything:

1. Eat real food
2. Get outside and play

I知 not saying it will fix YOUR food allergies, or your kid痴. But if we all followed this advice, we壇 have a lifestyle that much more closely resembles the lives of our grandparents. Maybe in a few generations we could reverse the damage that痴 been done over time.

Well. You heard me. Get off the computer and go outside!

here's the link:


If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you always got.
