Our Kids Health vs Big Business and Corporate Greed. Does our ignorance play a part in this?

25 Aug
Article written and provided by Dr Marcus Edinger  www.advancedhealing.com 
Why
do Walmart, Kraft and Coke Cola send Europe, pure, unadulterated
versions of their food products and we get the versions that contain
genetically modified ingredients, dyes, flavor enhancers and
preservatives?




  • Why did allergy to peanuts double from 1997 to 2002?
  • Why do 1 in 17 children under the age of three have a food allergy.
  • Why
    has there been a 256% increase in the rate of hospitalizations (doctors
    admitting patients not parents) related to food allergies.
  • The
    fact is, that in 2008, Kraft removed artificial colorings, like yellow
    #5, and chemical sweeteners, like aspartame, from the products that they
    distribute in Europe, Australia, and other developed countries due to
    consumer concern over scientific studies that link these synthetic
    ingredients to hyperactivity and asthma in children. But, they haven’t
    done the same thing here in the U.S.!

Robyn O’Brien shares her personal story and how it inspired her current path
as a “Real Food” evangelist. Grounded in a successful Wall Street career
that was more interested in food as good business than good-for-you,
this mother of four was shaken awake by the dangerous allergic reaction
of one of her children to a “typical” breakfast. Her mission to unearth
the cause revealed more about the food industry than she could stomach,
and impelled her to share her findings with others.

In
America and England we feed our children very poorly in school. I am
discussed when I see what is served in my daughter’s grade school and
after-school daycare. If you really want to be upset, checkout how
children eat at school in other countries.
