I'm getting pretty short of immediate family relatives, and frankly, I blame lifestyle choices. My family was always big on food as the focus of social occasions and holidays, not to mention a temporary fix for emotional issues and sickness. Ice cream and 7-UP were always on the menu when one had the flu or a bad cold. My Mother was a closet bulimic and enabler, and my Father a fat man from a fat family, so we always had treats, snacks and deserts around, AND were taught to feel guilty about consuming them.
We kids didn't do the shopping or cooking, so we did not make ourselves fat, or learn the behavior that keeps us that way. My brother died at 59 of a massive heart attack, after 12 years of treatment. He was an athlete who never smoked, drank, or did drugs, but he DID visit fast-food places nearly every day, sometimes more than once. I'll leave you to draw your own conclusions there - I certainly did.
My Dad developed type 2 diabetes in his late 50's and died at barely 70. My sister also developed diabetes, and is now nearly blind. Unlike the rest of my family, I started cutting back on sugar consumption in my teens, and over the years, embraced the "health food" culture in fits and starts. My only issue is arthritis, and I believe that had I known in the 1960's what I know now about food and all related issues - too numerous to list - that I might not be suffering from that condition now. But there's no proof, so it really is hard to tell. Anyway, that ship has sailed.
I just think, as I've probably said before, that the consumer is on his own regarding food in relation to his body. The information is out there, but is labeled as extremist or left-wing, courtesy of those who are making money out of our ill-health. Again, I won't go into all the details, but, to anyone reading this, who doesn't do so already, I would say, "READ. Educate yourself about your body, commercially produced food, GMOs, organic food, blah, blah, blah, and DON'T use the government's, the medical "industry's", pharmaceutical industry's, or Big Food's advice. They are in it to make money. They are NOT service industries, though they try to make it sound that way. Be causative!"
