You are what you eat. It’s a cliche that we hear all the time, but cliches are something that everyone knows and doesn’t do anything about. If we know that what we put into our bodies has a significant effect on our health and well-being, why are so many Americans gorging themselves with fatty, unhealthy foods? Why do people visit fast food chains that clog their arteries? Unfortunately, as professional chiropractors in Houston, we still don’t have a legitimate answer for this. We are genuinely flummoxed as to why anyone would be open to act against their knowledge and do serious harm to their bodies. It is disappointing, but it’s the reality.
But that is just the tip of the iceberg – unfortunately. In this article, we are here to discuss a very little known truth about the effects of diet and exercise, in hopes of helping as many people improve their health and well-being. A study recently revealed some absolutely shocking results with regard to the health of babies. It has been established that there is a strong correlation between the health of a baby and his or her mother’s diet. The healthier the mother – even prior to conceiving – the better the health of the baby.
So if what a woman eats before and during her pregnancy affects the health of her baby, wouldn’t you say that she has a responsibility to remain in shipshape? It’s not fair for an innocent baby to be harmed because his mother chose to eat artery clogging beef and butter all day. It just isn’t, and we sincerely hope that everyone out there spreads this news. We believe that if more are cognizant of this fact, women will take more responsibility. They will make sure not to put their babies on poor footing, thus eating better and exercising more.
The discovery of epigenetics in the 21st century was an incredible achievement. More and more research is being put into this fascinating discipline. Hopefully, with this knowledge, we can help our babies achieve optimal health and happiness.
