(NaturalNews) Heart failure is considered to be one of the top killers for men and women across the United States. This year alone, more than 900,000 people in America will have a heart attack. What's interesting is that research is now showing that heart disease can actually stem back to eating behaviors at a very early age. In simpler terms, children are predisposing their bodies to developing heart complications by the foods they choose (or are given) to consume.

The Young Finns Study

In the "Young Finns Study," scientists were able to directly observe the role of certain eating behaviors of more than 3,500 subjects with ages ranging from three to 18 years old. Researchers were then able to associate an elevated risk of heart disease with subjects that had a lower intake of fruits and vegetables over the course of their lives. Those with a higher intake of quality fruits and vegetables demonstrated a decreased risk of developing heart disease. Research like this explains why millions of people are told, from very early ages, to eat their fruits and vegetables. Unfortunately this "golden rule for health" is not being implemented as often as it should be.

What this type of research also points out is that if children start their lives out in this toxic "low fruit and vegetable" fashion, they will tend to keep unhealthy eating habits in place throughout the course of their lives. This also means that parents need to be more in control and knowledgeable of what their kids are eating - at home and at school.

Parents ultimately set the pace

It's true; kids are going to eat what mom and dad bring home, as the parents are the sole providers. If it's junk food, the kids will eat junk. If it's fresh organic real food, the kids will be eating fresh organic real food - it's that simple. Being that these eating behaviors start from an early age, it is important to expose children to eating well while their brains and bodies are growing and developing. Getting young ones hooked on fresh organic food is an obviously better choice.

From what the Young Finns study has suggested, there are many children who are predisposing themselves to being sick as they get older, and that's never a good thing to hear. Conditions like heart disease are extremely preventable, but it's going to take mass awareness to fully understand and control accordingly.

As the heart disease epidemic continues to expand and progress, good advice for avoiding such an outcome would be for more people (adults and children alike) to look at their dietary patterns more thoroughly. As often stated within the health community, much of "avoiding disease" begins and ends with choices - what one is choosing to eat and how they're going about living their life.

• Eating less sugar

• Eating less processed and preserved food

• Consuming more fresh organic fruits and vegetables

• Drinking more water

• Being more active

These are the golden rules for leading a healthy existence, and there are no shortcuts or "magic pills" around such recommendations. It's time to look more closely at what the younger generations are eating if we are to fix our global health epidemic.

In summation, the children of today will be running the world shortly. Having them fit and healthy should be a common goal for us all.
