Is This Child Abuse By The State?
There Are Many Forms Of Child Abuse!
Today we learn from an Australian news report; that a government agency has applied to the court for the right to remove an obese child from the home. We are talking about a child who weighs in at around 100 kilos. The media has been quick to call the parents ignorant, irresponsible and negligent and we all nod our heads and agree. The courts have an obligation to intercede. This is completely understandable, until we examine the facts more closely and ask a few questions like;
Where Will The Child, Who Is Subjected To This New Form Of Abuse Be Moved To? Watch this video
Does the foster home or institution have the required knowledge to safely and correctly effect a meaningful, permanent weight loss for the child? If they cannot promise a permanent weight loss, what’s the point of it, other than to cause more harm to the child? So will they simply put this child, who obviously suffers an addiction, on a diet that will stimulate that addiction.
Of course! That's exactly what they will do. It’s the only diet recommended by diet ‘experts’.
So here we really do have a new form of child abuse!
It's very unlikely that the people who demand to take charge of this child’s diet, have any expertise in how a child's body works. And what can be done to effect a meaningful weight loss. Other than to starve the child.
Morbid obesity is not caused by too much fat food, or fast food or just too much food. It’s caused by an addiction. It is likely the parents suffer it, and probably inherited it from their parents.
The solution is not to remove the child from home. The solution is to educate people and force a change to the conditions that cause the addiction.
The obesity epidemic and the soon to be official type2 diabetes epidemic, are merely symptoms of a far more serious and insidious epidemic, - carbohydrate addiction. This is not about changing a child's diet. This is about changing a lifestyle. That can only be done in a safe, home environment. If we want to lay blame anywhere, we can lay it at the feet of the manufactured cereal and diet food industries and the army of self-proclaimed experts they employ to spread their false propaganda.
Ultimately we can blame the government for failing to act. They have favoured industry over the welfare of the public. That’s nothing new. For many decades, they did the same for the tobacco industry. This takes us to the root of the problem, the addiction. How did it start, when did it happen and why doesn’t anybody want to talk about it?
What Is Food Addiction?
It began around forty years ago when a fake scare campaign about cholesterol, forced millions of people to change their diet. This was not a change of diet as we know it today. This was the abandonment of our age old traditional diet that had evolved with us for many centuries. It was replaced by a ‘modern’ new diet which became known as the Pyramid Diet. It was an exact reversal of our traditional diet. At the time, nobody seemed to realize the implications. How would our body respond to this sudden radical change of food groups?
It opened up an Aladdin’s Cave of opportunities for the manufactured food industries. They were free to produce an endless variety of products, based on carbohydrates, which could now be labelled “healthy”. So let’s look at some facts. Contrary to popular myth, the human body does not adapt – it evolves. To effect change, evolution takes eons not four decades.
Our body does not understand the food we eat. This has developed into an addiction. Our body also does not understand diets. It is programmed to respond to a famine. It slows our metabolism and prepares to store weight. When we resume our normal calories, the body goes to work to restore every ounce of lost fat. We have no right to assume the parents are equipped with the facts. Particularly when most other people also don't know the facts. We cannot accuse the parents of being complicit. They are as much a victim as the child.
Until the court is made aware of the facts about obesity,
they should not remove a child from a safe home environment. At least not without first examining the facts. No amount of good intentions can offer a meaningful, workable solution to the child’s obesity. To automatically assume the parents, who are also victims, are careless and negligent. That they knowingly contribute to the child’s obesity - is repugnant. No government agency or court can claim the high moral ground without first establishing the scientific facts.That does not include a reliance on self-nominated diet ‘experts’.
The Australian Bureau of Statistics has produced some recent statistics on obesity that makes the prediction of 80% by 2020 very realistic. Links to the various sections on obesity can be found on this page.
