The Health of Today’s Children

Today, we have an epidemic on our hands. Sadly, it’s our children who are suffering the most from this health crisis.

In fact, it is now estimated that children in today’s generation will actually be the first generation that will not outlive their parents.

How could this be happening?

Currently, we have an exponential rise in adult onset illness, like diabetes and obesity; showing up in children as young as 1 year of age. We also have statistics that show 1 in every 110 children has a learning disability like dyslexia, autism or PPD.

What in the world is going on here? The answer is quite simple, actually.

Certainly there are many different environmental factors involved, but they key component is nutrition.

You are what you eat. We hear that phrase all of the time, yet- it is a phrase that we constantly ignore. We deny that there is a profound link between what we eat and how we feel, everyday.
