ENCORE: What’s Making Our Children Sick? Part 1
December 19, 2019
There’s an epidemic of chronic childhood diseases, ranging from asthma and allergies, obesity and diabetes, pediatric cancers, GI conditions, autoimmunity, and ADHD, autism, depression and bipolar disorder. Why the sudden uptick? Veteran integrative pediatrician Dr. Michelle Perro, co-author of "What's Making Our Children Sick?: How Industrial Food Is Causing an Epidemic of Chronic Illness, and What Parents (and Doctors) Can Do About It," says it’s largely due to industrialized food, which is highly refined, bereft of nutrients, chemicalized, and genetically modified. She explains how GMO foods undermine kids’ health. Many problems can be traced to alterations of the microbiome and leaky gut syndrome. She argues for “food-focused medicine.” Dr. Perro cites examples of how diet change can reverse devastating illnesses. She outlines which supplements she prefers for kids. Prevention starts with pre-natal nutrition and detoxification. Click HERE for part 2.
