What’s Making Our Children Sick?: How Industrial Food Is Causing an Epidemic of Chronic Illness, and What Parents (and Doctors) Can Do About

by Dr. Michelle Perro and Vincanne Adams, 272 pages, 6x9, softcover. A veteran pediatrician teamed with a medical anthropologist make the case that a prior generation’s “healthy foods” are now making our kids sick—40% of our children have allergies and 10% of infants under a year have gastroesophageal reflux disease. And these are not Michael Pollen’s “edible food substances” with empty calories and lots of carbohydrates, but real foods, like eggs and milk and nuts. What’s changed? Through case studies and clear scientific follow-through, the indictment is against industrial food and, most notably, GM foods and glyphosate (RoundUp), whose original use was for cleaning metal pipes. We may have clean foods in terms of microbial pathogens, but we have dirtier foods in terms of chemical load. This, combined with environmental toxicants, creates an overload in our bodies, and especially in young bodies, that is hard to discharge. Many of us know this yet hold a well-informed passivity that stems from a sense of futility. But we must galvanize to protect our children, who are under threat. This book is well poised to launch us into the necessary action to create a healthy food environment. -Nikos Kavanya
