Not to be a Bible thumper or anything like that, but this study reminds me of the verse, ‘The Lord is slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love, forgiving iniquity and transgression, but He will by no means clear the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, to the third and the fourth generation.’ (Numbers 14:18) So often people think, "God is so evil, how could He curse people?!" when really all this is saying is the way we are treated and thereby treat our children create generational behaviors that are hard to overcome. It's not just nurture in the behaviors we're taught, but also nature in the ways our genes are affected and those traits are passed down. We used to call it "curses," and now we understand it as epigenetics. Fascinating...
It really makes me glad I left my very stressful job while pregnant and have made healthy eating a high priority. The choices I make now affect not only myself and my child, but generations afterward.
"I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.
In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."
