We interviewed Michelle Perro MD, co-author of What’s Making Our Children Sick?: How Industrial Food Is Causing an Epidemic of Chronic Illness, and What Parents (and Doctors) Can Do About It. The book explores the links between genetically modified foods (GMOs), glyphosate (a key ingredient in the RoundUp pesticide) and gut health.
What if toxicants in our foods are a major culprit, one that, if corrected, could lead to tangible results and increased health?
In this webinar you will learn about:
- New medical insights about pathogenesis of chronic pediatric disorders
- Genetically modified foods (GMOs)
- How glyphosate negatively affects gut health
- Gut dysfunction
- The microbiome
- The politics of food science
- The link between higher-yield, cost-efficient foods and an explosion of childhood morbidity
- A toxic food supply
- Insight on the medical responses that are available, both to heal our kids and to reverse the compromised health of our food supply
Please note that you will be asked to enter your email address at the 30-minute mark to finish viewing the video.
