Why in the world do we abuse our bodies the way we do? We eat crap all day, smoke, drink, do not exercise, and even worse, teach the same terrible habits to our precious children? Before long we have terrible obesity related diseases, feel exhausted and lousy constantly, get lung cancer you name it .. diseases that are absolutely preventable just by really taking care of our bodies. Incredibly enough, many of us even know that we are in the high risk group because of our family history, high cholesterol, blood pressure, obesity and other health related issues. We are well aware that we should eat better and exercise but do we? No. Instead, we play Russian roulette with our lives by continuing to eat unhealthy foods & having crappy habits. Our stupid, lame excuse for not living healthier? We mean to improve our lifestyle but other things always come up. What other things can be more important than life itself, YOUR LIFE? What in the world is wrong with us? Are we just suicidal beings? Its not even the imminent death that we all are so eager to hasten with our choices but rather the quality of life in general before it is our time to go. It doesnt matter how wonderful of a family you have the mansion you live in a body riddled with diseases would have hard time enjoying all the blessings in life. Think of just this scenario: you have a poorly functioning heart because of narrowed arteries. Because of that your whole body ends up suffering - kidneys, liver, the sexual organs , you will feel loss of energy, your brain suffers because of lack of oxygen and proper nutritients to your body (how do you like starving your brain so that it cannot work at its maximum? ). How much can you enjoy your life? The worst offense is imposed on our children. Is it not absolutely irresponsible, maybe even criminal, that we let our chidren become obese to the point of endangering their health and mental wellbeing? Shame on us, REALLY shame on us. I have but one question - whats your excuse for not really caring and taking care of the one and only thing that connects you to life, your body?
