The italicized part evades me. What is the connection between hormone treatment additives and the well-built structure of today's pre-teens? I mean, why is that a cause-effect relationship? Has the well-built structure of today’s pre-teens been brought about by hormone treatment additives? Maybe I lack common sense or something.
If we are what we eat, what is your teenage child? A bag of chicken and chips? A kebab? Litres of fizzy drink? The benefits of healthy eating and exercise are well documented and it is silly of us, as parents, to think we can feed our teens mostly junk food then expect them to perform at their best. In this age of pesticides, hormone treatment (hence the well-built structure of today’s pre-teens) additives, etc. that are in foods, both parents and teens need to understand that mental and physical well-being are aligned with what we eat. Depression, aggression, lack of focus, headaches and so much more can be alleviated with the right foods. Be open to this, for yourself and your young person.
