Our Kids, Food Allergies, Cancer, the Informed and the Rest of Us

17 April 2011

Today’s standard of medical care is to treat all diseases and symptoms with drugs or surgery. The problem here is that prescription drugs don’t correct the underlying cause – the nutritional, biochemical or structural imbalances. In fact, prescription drugs usually create more problems and actually make it harder for the body to heal. Prescription drugs are only designed to treat symptoms, by activating or suppressing reactions in the body. These drugs were never created to do what is truly needed to get ones health back and that’s – rebuild and regenerate tissue and/or function. The simple truth is that a chemical cure is not the answer to a nutritional biochemical or structural imbalances. Dr. Marcus Ettinger AdvancedHealing.Com 714-639-4360

* Our Kids, Food Allergies, Cancer, the Informed and the Rest of Us *

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

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 disgusted when I see what is served in my daughter’s grade school and after-school daycare.

Kids daily exercise habits and the myth of child safety being less today than when we were kids.

Most Kids Today Don’t Get Enough Daily Exercise. “About three out of four children ages 5 to 10 get less than one hour of physical activity daily, according to a new survey. Why? Find out here (Article Here)

I remember as a kid, growing-up in La Habra Heights, my brother and I would get home from school by 3:00pm. And after a quick snack we wouldn’t step foot back in the house until my dad would call us in for dinner; then back out until it got dark – 4 hours of outside play each day. Why are parents, today, not allowing their kids to do what we did as kids?

Response I got from posting the above on Facebook – “Agreed, but as a mother of a little girl, I think part of the problem is the increasing fear of predators and not wanting to allow your child to play outside without adult supervision. Parents just need to buck up and participate outdoors with their kids. After all, it’s a win-win situation; exercise, time spent together, natural vitamin D, etc….”

In actual fact, we and our children are safer today than in the past. The reason for the above fear is not based in actual fact but on this point: 40 years ago we mainly heard about local news and the occasional national and international news. We seldom heard about the rare abduction in say, Missoula, Montana or Laramie, Wyoming. There was no need to pass that information along, outside the area of concern.

Today though, news is all about sensationalism, scandal, and the promoting of fear and terror in the populace.Now, instead of hearing about the rare, local kidnapping or murder we hear about every murder, rape and kidnapping and potential terrorist threat in the country. This constant media attack makes it appear as though these events are an ever increasing phenomenon and that it’s occurring around every corner. This newly instilled fear is exactly the planned, end-phenomenon, which the powers-that-be want ingrained into our every cell.

Well, I call BS and will never become the effect of any type of media propaganda – from the Right-Left or Center. My daughter, like I was, will be educated in common sense (street-smarts), to not speak to strangers and be observant of her surroundings for possible dangerous situations. I want my daughter to be prepared – head held high, not scared -head buried in the sand.

Stop worrying so much about your children, there are bigger issues to be concerned with – your weight, our own government, retirement, our food…!

Kids today are just as safe as they were in the ’70s, says “Free-Range Kids” author Lenore Skenazy, and what’s really distressing is an alarmist culture that refuses to let them grow up.

Can We Eat to Starve Cancer?

“Imagine that one medical advancement held the promise to conquer cancer, perhaps within your lifetime … the potential to also end more than 70 of life’s most threatening conditions, affecting one billion people worldwide. This is the promise of angiogenesis, the first medical revolution of the 21st century.”

In laymen’s terms, Anti-Angiogenesis іѕ a cancer therapy that consists of intake of drugs or natural foods that deprive cancerous tumors of blood supplies. In other words, Anti-Angiogenesis starve tumors to death by choking off blood supplies to them.
