Overview

America is in the throes of a nutritional crisis and children are at its very heart.

Here is a book that forthrightly examines this problem from the perspective of an internationally renowned nutritionist and a holistically trained physician. Learn why:

  • 1 out of every 5 American children is overweight.
  • The incidence of asthma has increased 61% in the past 20 years.
  • Increased teen violence may be attributable to the prescribed use of some antidepressant drugs.
  • Immunizations may be related to autism in infants and children.
  • 2 out of 5 of today�s teenagers are likely to later develop oesteoporosis.
  • Environmental and food toxins may cause neurological and behavioral problems.
  • Commonly prescribed amphetamines are not the answer to ADHD.
  • Eating disorders among teenagers have reached near epidemic proportions.

The authors present a positive, balanced approach to health and nutrition that addresses these issues and offers hope to millions of undernourished, overmedicated children and their families.
