Half of children chronically diseased

From Augie’s “Journal of Natural Food and Health”:

“….American children are suffering more and more disorders—and are growing into even sicker adults—the worst of most major countries. Two studies were released this week underscore this alarming reality.

In a study published in Academic Pediatrics, an estimated 43% of US children (32 million) currently have at least 1 of 20 chronic health conditions assessed, increasing to 54.1% when overweight, obesity, or being at risk for developmental delays are included. The estimate is derived from 2007 data—4 years old. This tells us matters are much worse now–perhaps 50% are now chronically ill not counting obesity.

Another study in the June 2011 issue of Pediatrics says developmental disability is on the rise in the U.S. Between 1997 and 2008, the number of school-age children diagnosed with autism, ADHD, or another developmental disability rose by about 17 percent, a new study showed. It also said roughly 15 percent of kids – nearly 10 million – have such a disability. The numbers were based on information collected from parents, who were asked whether their kids had been diagnosed with a variety of developmental disabilities, including cerebral palsy, seizures, stuttering or stammering, hearing loss, blindness, and learning disorders, as well as autism and ADHD. Note that these numbers are three years old. Applying the same rate of increase, today’s numbers would amount to 21% by simple arithmetic. Boys were twice as likely to have a developmental disability. It also found except for autism, developmental disabilities were more common among children from low-income families….”

  1. We believe that a large part of the problem is that children, adults; are not getting farm fresh foods from local source. Still, many farms use chemical fertilizers, pesticides, and other things relative to commercial farming. Fake foods, this is what they are. Young bodies and brains cannot handle the load as well as adults can.

    One way to do something about this is to buy farm fresh foods. Milkmen throughout the country have started to carry more foods like this. They become a major distribution part of the food supply chain.

    Find a Real Milkman. Maybe Milk lady. whoever will get these foods to you during your hectic life. The Milkman can. The Milkman is BACK!

  2. The link to the Journal is not working. There is also a new story of eating lots of cheese and milk,

    That is the way those who run things continue to stay in control.
    They systematically changed the the truth into a lie.Sally Fallon(WAP Foundation)along with others has documented this.Anyone who has talked to really old people about what they ate when they were young will find no one was fearful of animal fats and they were not filling up on( statin drugs.)or dropping from heart attacks.They ate as much animal fat as they could.Meat butter eggs cheese and raw unprocessed milk etc. was the basis of many diets back then.Unless you were a city dweller.Read Dr.Weston A Price and his work.He did not find one group of people who had a carbohydrate or vegetarian diet as their traditional food.
    The enemy has moved people away from animal fats and put the global
    population on a carbohydrate processed food product diet(this maximizes profit).Think of the untold suffering this has caused on humanity.Think of the premature deaths!!!.The question now is will these criminals be brought to justice ????
    Why has the right to eat healthy food been taken away but you can consume as much refined sugar, alcohol, tobacco and other poison as you like????
    .What is the real purpose of groups like the FDA???????
    Why is there a war on small family farmers who produce wholesome natural food???????
    Look at the stats on chronic disease in children in the Western so called
    civilized world.Looks like the so called primitive people that have been annihilated now have the last laugh!
    Those who refuse to wake up to what has happened will not survive into the future.
    You may try to dispute the facts but you will not win over nature.History clearly shows that.
    You can fool some people some time.However you cannot fool all people all the time.
