Physical Awareness

Proper nutrition helps ensure a longer and healthier life

According to the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, poor nutrition can lead to many chronic diseases and medical concerns, including:

"Our soil is totally barren and 95% depleted of the basic survival ingredients." (World Health Organization, 1993)

Every adult regardless of age or health status needs a multivitamin to fill the nutritional gaps in his/her diet." (The Journal of American Medical Association)

"Ninety-seven percent of Americans are nutrient deficient." (JAMA).

The prevalence of individuals who are overweight or obese has steadily increased. Almost two-thirds of adults in the United States are overweight, and 30.5 percent are obese, according to data from the 1999-2000 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES).

The incidence of childhood obesity is also on the rise.


Environmental Awareness

Is Your Home Environment Toxic?

Our World is a Toxic Soup

-   Approximately 80,000 synthetic chemicals have been developed for use in the marketplace since the 1940s.
-   More than 1,500 new chemicals are introduced annually.
-   15,000 chemicals registered for commercial use with the Environmental Protection Agency had moderate to high potential for human exposure. Less than half of these had been tested for toxicity, and fewer than 20% had been tested for toxicity in developing organisms.
-  Complete tests for developmental neurotoxicity have been submitted to the EPA for only 12 chemicals as of December 1998.
-  Testing for developmental neurotoxicity is not required.
-  The human health effects of combined chemical interaction is unknown.
-  As testing procedures become more sophisticated, we are learning that lower and lower doses can be harmful, particularly to vulnerable populations like children. For example, the "safe" blood lead level has gone from 60 micrograms/deciliter (ug/dl) in 1960, to 10 ug/d/ in 1990, to current studies which suggest that lead may have no identifiable exposure level that is safe to the developing brain.

Children are Uniquely Vulnerable to Toxins

-   Proportional to body weight, children eat, breathe, and drink more than adults, and thus take in far higher concentrations of the toxins in our environment. For example, proportionally they drink seven times more water and take in twice as much air as adults on average.
-   As children's bodies and biological systems develop especially in the womb and as newborns, they are uniquely vulnerable to damage from toxic substances.
-   For example, small single doses of certain pesticides on critical days of a child's development can cause lifelong impacts on brain and body function, from learning disabilities such as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) to reproductive problems.

Chronic Childhood Illness is on a Dramatic Rise

-   The incidence of cancer in children jumped 26% between 1975 and 1998.
-   The percentage of U.S. children with asthma doubled from 3.6% to 7.5% between 1980 and 1995. In 2001, 8.7% (6.3 million) of all U.S. children had asthma.
-   It is estimated that nearly 12 million U.S. children (17%) under the age of 18 suffer from one or more learning, developmental, or behavioral disabilities.
-   Autism in the U.S. doubled between 1966 and 1997.
-   In 1997 to 2000, 6.7% of children ages 5 to 17 were reported to have been diagnosed with ADHD.

We Need To Take Action Now

-   We need to take preventative actions by developing and using alternatives to the substances known to contribute to learning disabilities, asthma, cancer and other childhood diseases. These actions can start at home!
-   We need more mandated support for research on environmental contributors to these chronic childhood diseases.

Financial Awareness

How Secure Is Your Financial Future?

Did you know?

People are living longer and longer today, but most are unprepared financially for retirement. When the first pension plan was created in the 1880s, sixty-five was selected as the age of retirement. Today, the baby boomers, the largest generation in history will live well into their 80's and 90's. How can we avoid financial disaster when tens of millions of baby boomers outlive their retirement savings and pension plans? (Ken Dychtwald, Ph.D., 1999)

The majority of today's senior citizens are living below the poverty level. With just $300 a month in extra income, 90% of all bankruptcies could be prevented. Most Americans are maxed out on their credit cards and out of control spending is at an all time high:

-   In 1990, household credit card debt averaged $3000.
-   In 2003, household credit card debt averaged $9,200 (up 207%).
-   In 2004, 51 million households carried credit card debt, at an average of $12,000 (up another 30%).

Personal Awareness

Do you have balance in your life and the time to do what matters most to you?

Did you know?

A nine-year research study conducted at New York State University of more than 12,000 men with a high risk of heart disease found that if these men took regular vacations, they were less likely to die prematurely. In 1973, households averaged 26.2 hours a week for relaxation, leisure activities and socializing. By 1999, this decreased to 19.8 hours a week according to researcher, Gary Burtless.

Working outside of the home is significantly affecting the lives of families:

-   To climb the corporate ladder, more workers are in the office for longer hours with less time to spend with their families.
-   Workers are taking more and more work home.
-   Technology, such as the Internet and PC, is making it increasingly hard to leave work at the office.
-   Those who work outside of the home are skipping meals with their families to work late.
-   Many corporate executives travel on weekends for business. In discussing the problem of balancing work and family, a senior manager said that no one in his company who wanted to get ahead was taking weekends off. In fact six and seven day weeks were the norm. (Ivey Business Journal, July-August 2005)

Unfortunately, this is pretty typical in Corporate America. In a survey conducted by professors Linda Duxbury and Chris Higgins (Ivey Business Journal, July-August 2005), when asked how they cope with the challenges of work-family conflict:

-   Seventy-eight percent say they work even harder.
-   Sixty percent report they cut down on outside activities.
-   Fifty-five percent state they get less sleep.
-   Because of the demands of work, 42% of professional women and 30% of the men surveyed say they had not started a family.
-   One-fourth of the women surveyed said they had fewer children because of work demands; 15% of the men said this was also true for them.
