Is Today's Food Damaging Kid's Mental and Physical Health? with Michelle Perro, MD
Marin pediatrician Michelle Perro, MD is sounding the alarm: serious conditions are on the rise among the children she sees in her practice--from neurological and autoimmune disease to asthma and digestive issues, including celiac disease and gluten sensitivity--and she believes the food we feed our children is causing many of these disorders.
"For the first time in modern history our children will not be as healthy as their parents," says Dr. Perro. "As pediatricians, we are seeing an epidemic of digestive, immunologic, and neurologic abnormalities that is changing the face of families, schools and society."
Many of the children Dr. Perro sees are suffering with behavioral disorders, like ADHD, that affect their ability to function at school and at home. In addition, Dr. Perro is seeing babies who won't stop crying and are not thriving and children who have unusual skin disorders, early puberty, diabetes, and other endocrine issues ranging from obesity to failure to grow.
Dr. Perro cites a growing body of research that shows that today's food is wreaking havoc on our children's health, largely via intestinal damage which is linked to the high rise of other disorders.
Dr. Perro is a Yale-trained, board-certified pediatrician. She practices at The Institute for Health and Healing in Greenbrae and San Francisco.
