The civilization has traveled a long way from agricultural society to today’s modern, technology oriented one. As we change, so do our living habits. Previously, most of the population was living in villages, which was normal given the development of industry. As the economy changes, more and more people are finding job in cities, where most of the companies and services are located. Although this is something dictated by the development of industry, it doesn’t necessarily means that it is good for us. It appears that the polluted space known as the city is a major contributor to many of our diseases.
First differences start from the childbirth. Given the tempo of the urban areas, most of the women decide to give birth to a baby in rather late age. This in term means that the baby has greater chances of developing degenerative condition. That is only the beginning. Most of the mothers are under the influence of different pollutants. When they give birth to a baby, their body has numerous xenoestrogens, chemical particles that are product of our environment. Naturally, those substances are passed over to baby. This means that the newborn are already born with a bad starting position. All these chemicals can lead to numerous issues such as raised blood sugar which can lead to obesity and diabetes, pulmonary issues, anxiety and good potential for developing cancer.
First issues start with the first strolls. Babies need fresh air and sun for all the processes in their body. Sun provides vitamin D which helps with bone growth and strength. On the other hands, fresh air is a great source of oxygen which improves the metabolism and work of our inner organs especially heart and lungs. Both of these elements are necessary for good, health basis. Otherwise, the child can encounter problems later on during life. Although there is a lot of ultra violet radiation wherever we go, it is mostly concentrated in cities because of its industry. This means that even if we get enough of sunlight, we are exposed to radiation. Vitamin D can be replenished by supplements found in your CIPA approved online pharmacy, but the oxygen can’t. Oxygen regulates most of the processes and the polluted air can easily cause asthma and different allergies.
It is even worse if the child stays at home. If the eyes don’t get enough of sunlight, it can cause myopia. Besides that, children need to be exposed to everything that the nature has to offer. If we keep them inside, it can negatively influence their resistance to microbes. The body won’t get accustomed to all the bacteria and viruses around us, so there is a great chance that it will bring about chronic diseases in later stage of individual’s life.
Cities and the hectic life in them are a cause for mental disorders. Children are born in crowded places, full of noise and other distractions. As we grow, our brain starts to work under that pressure; we are often anxious and hyperactive. This can lead to depression and other stress related issues. Our brain is just not accustomed to working under so much pressure and to receive all these information. Sooner or later it snaps.
If you have the option, try raising your family in the countryside. This will provide you a good solution for your mind and your children’s mind. Lastly, you can rest assured that your children will have a healthy future without everything that the city brings.
