With chronic disorders among American children reaching epidemic levels, hundreds of thousands of parents are desperately seeking solutions to their children’s declining health, often with little medical guidance from the experts. Dr. Vincanne Adam's coauthored book, What’s Making Our Children Sick?, convincingly explains how agrochemical industrial production and genetic modification of foods is a culprit in this epidemic. Is it the only culprit? No. Most chronic health disorders have multiple causes and require careful disentanglement and complex treatments. But what if toxicants in our foods are a major culprit, one that, if corrected, could lead to tangible results and increased health? Join us as we discover what Professor of Medical Anthropology Dr. Vincanne Adams has learned about the harm that industrial food is causing (such as chronic illness) and what parents (and doctors) can do about it. Using patient accounts of their clinical experiences and new medical insights about pathogenesis of chronic pediatric disorders taking us into gut dysfunction and the microbiome, as well as the politics of food science this book connects the dots to explain our kids’ failing health.
