There seems to be little concern for this as we are duped into believing that science will step in and make improvements for us. However science is yet to discover cures for the multiple of chronic diseases which play such a role in prematurely ending the lives of the aging.
There is positive scientific proof that most chronic diseases are caused through a lifetime of ingesting animal fats and proteins and processed foods. Obesity is the first and most obvious symptom; however heart disease, cancer, dementia, rheumatism, diabetes, MS and the many other non communicable diseases of the West all have their roots in youthful eating of the killer foods.
So long as we continue with the corporate driven mantra that milk and meat are good for growing children, and it is acceptable to offer them processed foods, we are committing these children to a shortened life, as if we were encouraging them to smoke and drink from an early age.
For those of us responsible for raising the young, we must recognise that the only way we can assure them a long and disease free life is to serve them a plant based, whole food diet.
For those of us who have made 50, we must recognise that the only safe way to avoid our premature death from a chronic disease is to eat a plant based, whole food diet.
Science will not undo what the food related industries have profitably put in place. Without a paradigm shift in food choices our youth are condemned to an early death.
