interesting video about what WE do can affect babies in the womb on a genetic level

Sorry the title is so long...  lol  I posted this in the FB group and wanted to share it here for those who aren't over there also.  Lots to think about.

 

My FIL sent me this video a few weeks ago, and we finally watched it this morning.  It's actually pretty interesting stuff.  It's long (an hour and a half), but the last 15 minutes or so specifically address how what we do while our babies are still in the womb can affect even the structure of their brains based on *our* environments.  You really should watch the entire thing, though, to fully understand the enormity of our impact at the end.

Haven't watched yet, but I 've had some snotty responses just by bringing up in conversation that what we eat and what meds we put in our body can influence the genes of our children. No one seems to want to listen.

Most humans like to play the victim.  Nothing they do matters, life happens to them, it's not their fault, etc etc.  Ticks me off.  Royally.

Oh my, don't even get me started on the comments people make in response to things that can effect baby in utero...one of the apps I use has a post about smoking while pregnant and I have made quite a few posts in that one...amazing how many people don't take saying "smoking is bad" very well lol...oh well, they are gonna do whatever the heck they wanna do, I just hate that it's an innocent that takes the brunt of it all. Anyway, I will probably check out this video when I get some free time...it sounds interesting :)
