    Is the next generation going to be strong enough? Are we breading the natural strength out of our immune systems?

    Now, we are lucky to live till we're 100 years of age. We aren't getting weaker, we are making bad decisions, abusing our bodies with drugs, bad food and things that are not good for us.

    DD says: People lived longer in bible times because the calenders were different, and years were calculated differently. I think. I don't think it's just the bad stuff that's makeing us more unhealthy though, we are losing our natural immunity from vaccinations and things like that as well.

    shaper says: I think the stories your thinking of are from the bible, actual history will tell you that people died very young,40 was OLD and we are living much longer. now because of our diets, clean water to drink and health care. Even in recent history (the last100 years) people did not live as long as we are doing now. We will just have to learn to be strong, do more with ourselves . Lean to use our minds as well as our bodies.

    DD says: Yes I agree! Hygeine is good, but going overboard does not let us develop our immune systems, as our bodies do not have the viruses to develop against.

    DD says: Thank you for saying it is the living standard. I agree with you now. But, like you say, you can't really blame gen y for being like gen y, for being raised this way.

    And people did not live for hundreds of years in biblical times. The lived to forty if they were lucky. No hooky calendars, just myth.

    Elcee says: A visit to any childrens hospital will show just how many auto immune diseases are now prevalent throughout your state. Multiply the numbers by the number of states and you will get an idea of just how much we are weakening our childrens immune systems, by feeding them hormone and gm laden foods, sterilising things excessively and poisoning the air we breathe with chemicals and toxic pollutants. When will we learn that the world depends on our children ...our children are our future. I have a two year old granddaughter who could die because her immunisation caused a virus which triggered her immune system to attack her own skin and muscles. We are living with this on a daily basis so understand full well the dangers being caused to our immune system. We must care for our children with clean air and chemical free foods, and not be pressured into immunising them with every new vaccine that pharmaceutical companies develope..

    PukPuk says: Modern society is breeding softies expecting everything to be given to them instead of earned. In a lot of cases, we need to experience or be exposed to things in order to build up our natural defences so when something of adversity is faced we are able to defend ourselves. The human race needs to go back to the Book of Leviticus which actually lists various food types that the human body is designed to thrive on. Unfortunately I too have been lazy in modern life and now had to go back to these basics to survive. Sustenance has now won over taste.

    elmina says: I think you mean breeding?
    No - immune systems adapt, like any other system in an organism. Adaptation to the environment and surrounding circumstances is a natural phenomenon that ensures organisms endure, and live on to successfully reproduce and gradually mutate.
    Change will happen, and the human immune system adapts around those changes. However, it is also inevitable that all these small and gradual alterations mean that things do not remain the same. For example, someone living in a city in the 18th century had immunity to the diseases rampant then - they would be totally vulnerable to our diseases if they suddenly reappeared now and faced hepatitis and HIV/AIDS.

    See what I mean? And we have become very vulnerable to TB and smallpox because they have been distant from us, and out of circulation for so long.
