My mom has diabetes, she takes homeopatic medicine to cure it. Do I agree with her treatment? "NO". Have I told her my thoughts and facts about that treatment? YES. Should I stop her from it? Its her decision. Her body. Not mine. I wish she stopped.
Eating processed meat causes cancer and cancer could kill you. Should we stop eating process meat? YES. If you want to go out to dinner with me and want to eat process meat should I tell you what I think? If I care for you, yes. Should I stop you? Why. its your choice.
How about my underage children? They are in my care therefore I will do what I can to protect them until they can take informed decision about their body.
4 years ago my Grandfather a JW had 4 heart attacks and the doctor forbid him from eating SALT and other stuff. He was 85 years old but very lucid. Street smart. always kind to people but he liked to eat.
My Grandma cooked a delicious mexican dish that the whole house smelled delicious. Everybody was enjoying the food, except Grandpa who was eating salt-less beans. My Grandpa asked my dad to serve him just a little of the Dish, just a little. He said "Son please serve me some of that I want to taste it", my dad refused and he said "NO that is bad for you"
Later on I asked my Dad "Dad, when you get to that age, would you like me to follow your wishes or ignore them like you did to your father?"
My grand father died a month later, his last month... he couldnt even enjoy what he eat.
