EPIDEMIC PROPORTIONS

It seems that mental and neurological disorders such as ADD, ADHD, bipolar, autism, and so on have reached epidemic proportions.  

There are several reasons.  There may be a link between some of these disorders and the artificial ingredients found in food, like preservatives, food dyes, chemicals, fluoride and GMOs.  The more research I've done, the more I discover just how wide and far-reaching the problem is.  It's not just our food supply.  These chemicals and artificial ingredients are in cosmetics, personal products like shampoos, and household cleaning products.  And as if that's not enough, some mental and neurological disorders may be linked to environmental triggers, including chemicals in the air, electronics and other technological sources.

We probably all know at least one person with such disorders; at least one child struggling in school, at home, and in relationships.

We need to reverse this disturbing trend.  How?  We can start by examining the foods we eat... at home and in school.  We need to make smart choices in what we feed ourselves and our families.  We need to pay attention to what our children get to eat in school cafeterias and classrooms.  We need to raise our voices and make sure our children aren't given products that hinder their mental, emotional and even physical growth.

We need to Do Something... Now. We need to act to make our world a safer place for our children's physical and mental wellbeing. 

Most articles, publications and web sites talk about the impact a healthy diet has on a child's physical health.  For some reason, the mental and psychological aspects are rarely discussed.  But the effects of food additives, chemicals and preservatives on the brain are just as detrimental as the effects on the body.  ADHD and other mental disorders not only impair a child's ability to learn, their hyperactivity and behavioral problems also disrupt the classroom, cause chaos with parents and siblings, and lead to lifelong problems in adult relationships, ability to hold down a job, etc.

Taking medications is not always the answer (though in some circumstances it is necessary... but over-utilized).  We need to reduce the amount of medications and drugs; and eliminate the use of artificial ingredients, preservatives, and food additives from our diets.
