In today’s podcast with Integrative pediatrician, Dr. Michelle Perro, we explore What is Making Our Children Sick and steps to improve and protect their health.
Linking the efforts to create higher-yield crops with an explosion of childhood morbidity, chronic disorders among American children have reached epidemic levels. Hundreds of thousands of parents are desperately seeking solutions to their children’s declining health, often with little medical guidance from the experts.
In her book What’s Making Our Children Sick? Dr. Perro convincingly explains how agrochemical industrial production and genetic modification of foods are culprits in this epidemic. Is it the only culprit? No. Most chronic health disorders have multiple causes and require careful disentanglement and complex treatments. But what if toxicants in our foods are a major culprit, one that, if corrected, could lead to tangible results and increased health?
Using patient accounts of their clinical experiences and new medical insights about the pathogenesis of chronic pediatric disorders―taking us into gut dysfunction and the microbiome, as well as the politics of food science―this podcast, connects the dots to explain our kids’ ailing health.
