 American Children are Falling Victim to an Epidemic of Chronic Illness

 Have your children been diagnosed with autism, ADHD, allergies, asthma,
 celiac disease, learning or behavioral disorders, diabetes or any other
 chronic illness?

 Do your children or children that you know exhibit symptoms like chronic
 constipation, frequent fevers, chronic diarrhea, eczema, food
 sensitivities, chronic infections (ear, strep, vaginal, urinary, colds,
 etc.), colic, reflux, sensory problems, obsessive compulsive behaviors,
 developmental delays or other health and medical problems that do not
 have a diagnosis?

 If you answered yes to either of the above questions, then you MUST read
 the book: A Compromised Generation: The Epidemic of Chronic Illness in
 America’s Children by Beth Lambert, with Victoria Kobliner.

 A Compromised Generation reveals how seemingly benign elements of
 American culture are making millions of children chronically ill, disabled, or
dysfunctional. Children are being diagnosed with illnesses such as
 autism, asthma, allergies, and ADHD at a breathtaking rate.
 The etiology of autism continues to confound mainstream medicine, yet
 parents, medical researchers, and healthcare practitioners dedicated to
 unraveling the mystery are beginning to put the pieces of the puzzle
 into place. They have found that environmental factors that cause autism are
 the same ones causing epidemics of ADHD, juvenile diabetes, asthma,
 gastrointestinal disorders, and many other chronic illnesses.

 Although the specific pathophysiology of each individual child’s
 illness varies, they all have the same basic underlying causes.

 It is a “perfect storm” of environmental factors including decades
 of pharmaceutical over-usage, toxic or nutritionally anemic diets,
 excessive exposure to environmental toxins, specific American habits and
lifestyles, and excessive or improperly administered vaccines. A Compromised
 Generation provides details on how this epidemic can be reversed and how
 to prevent more children from becoming ill, supplying evidence that
 children can recover from chronic illnesses, including autism, by
 altering their environmental influences and by stepping outside of the
traditional western medical paradigm.
