What is the best strategy to prevent diseases?
Cardiac Surgeon Emeritus in Northwest Indiana Dr. Philip S. Chua, MD, FACS, FPCS, attempts to provide resolution to this issue as he presents Let’s Stop “Killing” Our Children, a valuable, inspiring, and innovative 800-page health reference that focuses on disease prevention starting from “ground zero”, and highlights the fundamental obligation both parents and society have in teaching children how to life a healthy lifestyle by setting good examples early on.
This book emphasizes that healthy lifestyle and disease prevention for the child should start in the womb and dieting should begin in the crib. This revolutionary concept puts the onus squarely on society, parents and guardians of young children who are totally “at the mercy” of these adults, whose good or bad habits and behaviors will inevitably be emulated by the children. It is in the five formative years of the children and up to age 12 when instilling proper discipline and behavioral modification are most influential and effective, states this heart surgeon.
“Almost all diseases known to man are self-induced and are, therefore, preventable…however, most of us seemed to have unwittingly programmed our mindset and behavior to a self-destruct and slow-suicide mode…this negative surrender and fatalistic attitude are what this book aims to change,” Dr. Chua critically pointed out in his book.
