(c) Tom Hendricks 2018

In the blink of an eye
someone we love is gone.
In the path of a storm.
all we have tumbles down.

So run with me
the lucky ones,
though I don’t know why.
So run with me
and be my love
for the rest of our lives.

Why are some so quick to go
and leave the rest of us behind?
Why do some live to be old
and others run out of time.

So run with me
and be my love
and all the pleasures prove.
We’ll live our lives
on the run
till our days are gone.

Why the Obesity Epidemic?

June 2, 2018

Why is there an obesity epidemic?

The answer, if my ideas are correct, is very very simple:

Eating excessively is NOT connected to wanting more nurturing, but instead it is a strategy of the immune system to flush out germs in your colon – a major problem for all infants and a key to health for everyone. *

Remember when the alimentary tract is attacked by germs the best two strategies of the body is to throw up (block out) , or diarrhea ( flush out).

Know too that a newborn is very vulnerable to infection before his own immune system is fully developed. *

The key clue to my idea is this: YOUR BODY IS SET UP FOR HIGH FIBER DIETS.

That was the only choice through history, until recently. That means that for most of our history, eating more would be eating more FIBER and flushing out your colon – thus getting rid of bad bacteria.

So eating more during trauma is the normal, natural, safe, response that humans have to gut infections. This started in infancy when the danger is the worst and the immune system is being set up. That pattern of a diet high in fiber is good for adults too.

But now our diet has changed, it is not mostly fiber, and the obesity epidemic followed. Now the natural and healthy drive of our bodies to flush the colon, leads to eating food that adds pounds, not fiber.

Why does our hunger for excess food continue when we are no longer infants and the danger of getting infections is less?

First of all a high fiber diet is always healthy.
Next the body is not set up for any other type of diet.
Next when a person is under stress his body will play it safe and revert to infant immune strategies which means hunger for more food/fiber to flush out the colon.

When is the immune system set up? My suggestion is that the period of infancy around 1-3 years old may be the most important time. This pattern, once set, seems to be very difficult to change.

This also seems to match other aspects of infant development in those years that include:
The child’s first hard foods, loss of breast milk, terrible twos, temper tantrums, separation anxiety, stranger anxiety, being a fussy eater, toilet training, and infant sleep problems. These infant problems may be reactions to setting up the immune system. This development phase may be a tough, but necessary stage for all infants.

Some facts:
*”In humans the gut flora is established at one to two years after birth.”

The gut is the body’s largest immune organ. 70-80% of the immune systems cells are found within the gut.

The newborn and infant are at their most vulnerable in the first years.

Diarrhea is the fourth leading cause of death for children and responsible for 8.6% of all deaths of children aged under 5.
Dysentery, diarrhea, and other infections disease have always killed many newborns.
“In the ancient world dysentery killed about a third of all babies born before they got to be a year old.”

According to the World Health Organization, about one quarter of the world’s population — over 1.5 billion people — is infected with parasitic worms called helminths. These worm infections are most common in tropical and subtropical areas with poor sanitation.

So that’s it – that’s why we have an obesity epidemic.

Comments welcome.
Tom.
