National Childhood Obesity Day AKA Halloween

Halloween is a curse our world has yet to face, let alone defeat. These commercial companies have zero incentive to make your child live a better life. As new information coming out showing the harm of social media and excessive screen time can cause on the neurological and social development, very little about diet is spoken about. I hope to inspire a new generation of Livingood lives to break these sins we have passed down from generation to generation.

Halloween was started by the Celts 2000 years ago as a means to dress up and scare off ghosts. Now I’m not into arguing about supernatural events, as I have my own point of view about these happenstances, but can we just take a second to consider how this sacrificial holiday has turned into a market driven nightmare for the health and wellness of our nation? 1000 years after the Celts celebration started, we began using a flavor of this idea to celebrate those remembered souls who have passed before us, All Saints Day. Now, I am fully for the education about our ancestors as well as the trials, tribulations, and accomplishments of those who endured so much to continue the story of each and every human life living today. This is actually an essential part of teaching gratitude at the highest of levels. But we do not use these holidays and opportunities to do such. No, we instead celebrate gluttony and taking without earning. What an American ideal.

Now, let’s talk about about how sugar effects every organ system in the human body. It causes diabetes, neurological distress and disorders, loss of focus, poor mouth hygiene, emotional distress, fatty liver, systemic inflammation, uric acid accumulation, unhealthy skin, irritable bowels, and lowered immunity. Now after the past 2 years of people acting like they care about their health by wearing masks and getting shots up with an experimental drug from criminal organizations, you would think a focus on unnecessary simple sugars would be a talking point across all media stations, but it’s not. No, I’m fact, these education and media institutions are sponsored by these candy manufacturers and supply our developing youth with these gateway drugs.

Now consider, at the root of these candies typically lies natural food that are in fact nutritious such as dark chocolate and fruits. But we don’t celebrate these foods, no we go “ick” when talking about them then go on to spend money sending them to manufacturing facilities to turn them into toxic matter that is carcinogenic and corrosive to the body. Not to mention the percentage of child slaves used in this process. What happened?

Now let’s skip forward to these scary movies. I do believe that paranoia is a healthy trait to keep someone safe. It allows the mind to create potential harms that could happen but excessive paranoia to the point of inability to act is something that eventually turns into a mental disorder. It is a healthy balance of exposing your kids to potential harms and teaching them how to cope with reality and then also putting them in harms way. I would say that we definitely need more oversight on public platforms and mass media to protect the children, but this becomes a hairy line when you take this ideology and use it as an excuse to prevent content from getting to adults. The SECs rating scale has really lost its meaning over the years as we have spiraled down into complete chaos online of censorship mixed with a bad taste of manipulative advertising. We really need to be aware of what our kids are watching as to not shock their nervous system and predispose them to efforts of grooming psychopaths and emotionally disturbed adults.

Ultimately, I believe it is time that we, the intelligent class, isolate from the self-destructive ignorant masses. We have the technological abilities to build isolated networks and telecommunication systems that could integrate a holistic and truly progressive mission of building better lives in all areas. Our holidays should teach and inspire. Our education should be functional. Our lifestyles should be fulfilled. Let’s grow better communities one day at a time.
