Examines the causes of chronic disease in American children, discussing such conditions as the overuse of prescription medicines, poor diet, misuse of vaccines, environmental toxins, and certain lifestyles as contributing factors.

The media has called attention to new ?epidemics? of chronic illness in children, including ADHD, autism, food allergies, asthma, and obesity. Are they real, and if so, why are so many children getting sick? This book, rooted in scientific literature, answers these questions for parents. Many children considered healthy by their pediatricians show subtle signs of ill health. The author explains how to prevent these illnesses, and how to help those who are already ill.

Seemingly benign elements of American culture are making millions of children chronically ill, disabled, or dysfunctional. They are being diagnosed with illnesses such as autism, asthma, allergies, diabetes, and ADHD at a breathtaking rate. Research shows that decades of pharmaceutical over-usage, toxic or nutritionally anemic diets, exposure to environmental toxins, certain American habits and lifestyles, and excessive or improperly administered vaccines are at the root of these illnesses. This book provides details on how to reverse these epidemics and prevent more children from becoming ill, supplying evidence that we can help children recover from chronic illnesses, including autism, by altering their environmental influences and by stepping outside the traditional western medical paradigm.

"Beth Lambert puts forth a cogent, well-written explanation of the suspected, environmental factors involved in the current epidemics of autism, ADHD, asthma, allergies, obesity and diabetes; and includes thoughtful approaches to treatment.
