“We live our life as the guardian of our genome”. -Marcus Pembrey

Have you ever wondered if you could protect your children from ever having to experience cancer?  It is a good question…the answer is that there are things that WE CAN DO to protect our children from some cancers.   Can we guarantee that they will never get sick…the obvious answer is NO…but we can do things that can give our kids a greater chance of living a longer and healthier life.   We know enough, we have all seen family members, friends, neighbors and co-workers endure needless suffering and there are things that WE CAN DO RIGHT NOW to help.

One, one of the first things we can do is learn about what are the common illnesses in the family…both mom’s and dad’s side.  Knowing what the “family genes” are is a tremendous help and start!

Two, learn what you CAN DO TODAY to help prevent cancer in your kids throughout their lifetime.  It turns out that most adult diseases stem from factors in childhood.  To help you with this, I have put together a series of podcasts that is a compilation of what I have learned through my work as an oncology nurse as well as the research that I have done on this topic.  These podcasts can be downloaded to your computer or iPod to make it easy for you to listen on your own time while walking, driving your car or  at a time that works best for you!!  You can check it out here

Three, choose and eat Wholesome, colorful, nutritious food that is plant based as much as possible.  If you start young, your kids will naturally follow.

Four, exercise and get your kids involved in exercise or team sports.  We already know that those kids involved in team sports have lower rates of cancer over their lifetime!!

Five, Practice some form of stress management….Mindfulness Meditation, Yoga, Qigong, Prayer…invite your kids to practice these stress management techniques with you!!  They are amazingly helpful and keep the mind calm and focused!

Practice these 5 things and you are giving your kids an amazing gift towards good health!!
