Our Future Generations are at Risk
Far-reaching consequences for our future generations
I came across some really disturbing news lately. It has to do with our future generations, they seem to be at risk. You might be thinking this post will be on Global Warming and of course not taking care of our Planet will make it impossible for future generations to live here. But there are other dangers that seem to make it difficult for the Human race to survive.
Our Water, Soil, Air and also our Food are filled with Toxic Pollutants which will not only harm us and the lives of our children but it has a far more reaching effect on the following generations than was initially believed.
Chemicals and unborn babies
EWG and other researchers in the last 10 years have shown as proven fact that all these awful toxic chemicals which form part of our daily life can reach unborn babies through the umbilical cord. Not only are we responsible for the lives of our babies after they are born also during the 9 months of pregnancy. Some people might even say for a long time before getting pregnant one should prepare one’s body for this big event. Studies have shown that these chemicals do not only harm us and our children they even may change on a genetic level and alter its functions for future generations. These future generations might not come into direct contact with these chemicals but they will suffer the consequences of their ancestors having been exposed.
This is called transgenerational effect.
A change in the human race how we know it
Epigenetics – This is the study of chemical markers which attach to DNA and by doing so changes the way the DNA functions. If there are epigenetic changes not only in eggs but also in sperm that will mean that the future generations of Human Beings will be different from what we know today. Normally, epigenetic markers are being reset from one generation to the next, but what happens if the egg and sperm markers have been changed? It will pass on erroneous information onto the next generation to then be repeated again. Perhaps, in the long run, a Human from the future would not recognize people from the past as his or her ancestor.
To be a passive smoker
We have all heard the term Passive Smoker. It does not only affect the person who smokes but also the people surrounding this person including animals which live with us. Nowadays there are more dangers in the form of chemicals over which one has hardly a say. Only you are the one who decides what to eat, water and air are more difficult to decide on as others normally do that for us. The same applies to radiation, it is difficult to stay clear of it completely as we ourself produce it and it is also present all around us. It is getting more and more difficult to stay healthy as the world we live in has a huge impact on our health and that of the future generations. Already now one sees more children which are diagnosed with neurological and behavioral conditions, more than in the past. This is because we are more exposed to dangerous pollutants during gestation and even exposure in the time before conception. That is why we have to live as clean as possible less the Human Race disappears in the form we know it.
No Human Race.
How would the world look without us, very different indeed? It would look peaceful, no pollution of any kind and nature would take over so fast soon overgrowing all we have done and made.
Still, our future generations could live on our beautiful planet as Human Beings who respect their own bodies and the environment. Now if we don’t, it does not look too bright I think. The following video shows our bad behavior and I think the end of this video illustrates our righteous punishment. The world is better off without us.
