I Used To Be a “Free Radical”…Now They Are My Enemy!

free-radicals

I lived a worry-free life for a very long time.  I didn’t give a second thought to organic eating or a wellness protocol.  In fact, I made jokes about both.   It wouldn’t have occurred to me that “oxidative stress” had anything to do with the human body.  I was a “free radical” with good health and not a care in the world.   Then something strange happened….I woke up.  I’m fortunate that it didn’t take a major health crisis to jar me awake!    When I opened my eyes (and mind) I learned that there are HUGE health issues all around me that have little to do with age and everything to do with lifestyle and environmental exposure!

I learned that the cancer rate in America is 1 in every 2 males and 1 in every 3 females and that it is no respecter of age.  As the mother of 2 boys and 2 girls and the grandmother to a 1 year-old grandson the odds are too scary to ponder.  Cancer is wreaking havoc on our world and, from the outside looking in, it appears like we’re much more focused on a C U R E than we are about prevention.  Of course, that could just be the “free radical” in me speaking up!

I learned that the rate of autism is off-the-charts striking 1 in every 88 children across America.  As a military mom I am extremely troubled by the fact that these rates are HIGHER on military bases…1 in 68!   Hmm…looks like an environmental problem to me!   There goes that “free radical” spirit again!

I learned that “Free Radicals” were not a good thing and that if I didn’t do something to make changes in my own life, and to lead by example for the next generation(s),  these free radicals could literally be the  slow death of us all.

It’s painful to wake up and to assume responsibility BUT now I’m FREE to be RADICAL about our current health crisis and, in keeping with the personality of my younger years, I intend to be bold in the fight.  So…if I step on your toes from time-to-time it’s probably best to just push the delete button.  I’m not going anywhere and I’m not going to stop fighting for the next generation.  After all, I have a responsibility to “save” them from other “free radicals” like me too clueless to speak the truth.
