Maybe we need to look in to the lives people live today verses what how our grandparents lived. Lives were definitatly different. I agree they were very active and today society, over half is obesse. This is what normal society is now days. If they had to work their land and grow their own food, or feed and take care of livestock, or break their horses and donkeys, goats, and milk everyday, twice day , they probably wouldn't be in that situation. It is up to a person on what their health is. I understand some of it is hereditary. Both my parents have/had high blood pressure. . . and both over wieght. Dad passed last year due to a rare heart condition that is pass thru the males. My grandfather (on my mom's side) died in 2000 due to prostate cancer. Some things can not be help, but others can. Live the healthiest life you can. And yes I am in good health with no BP problems and not over weith at all. Just so you know, but I do tend to work my butt off everyday focusing on my garden work, taking care of animals, cleaning my home and cooking for my family. It is my husband and I mostly, but with 4 boys, and two of them with wives and 2 serious girlfriends. It's not how much bacon you eat, but how you live.There is no bubble to pop. Science is science. My mother died at almost 91, a heavy chain smoker all her life (3 to 4 packs a day). Because she didn't get lung cancer does that mean other smokers wont either? My father died at 64 of lung cancer directly attributed to smoking, and they suspected, exposure to asbestos in the Service. Back in our grandparent's day people were much more active and could cope better with a greasy, salty, carby and fried diet. Your family may also have been blessed with good genes as was my mother and her mother before her.
OK, makes sense... just keep in mind HOW YOU GO. You don't want to spend years in a debilitated state with diabetes or heart disease or whatever diet related disease you may be prone to, oxygen tank hung on the back of your wheelchair....
I care about people (and animals), that's what got me into that field to start with.
