According to Dr. Michelle Perro….

"Eating processed foods that are high in carbs, sugar and hollow calories is the first problem but not the main problem. The more insidious danger is foods that are full of pesticides hormones and antibiotics.”

Now Dr. Perro is not someone who has always thought this way. Though she’s been a pediatrician for over 35 years, it took her own son’s illness for her to understand the incredible importance of organic foods. Since she’s incorporated organic foods into her recommendations (and other strategies) for kids suffering from autism and other cognitive disorders, mental health issues and illnesses like eczema, the transformations have been ASTOUNDING!

So astounding that she felt compelled to team up with vice-chair of Medical Anthropology at the University of California, San Francisco, Dr. Vincanne Adams to write a book all about the dangers of our industrial food system called What’s Making Our Children Sick? How Industrial Food Is Causing an Epidemic of Chronic Illnesses and What Parents (and Doctors) Can Do About It.
