Children illnesses are on the rise in the United States, and it is becoming a bigger issue every year. Having a child with a chronic illness is no longer a rarity, and if the surge in illness continues, analysts worry it may wreck a havoc on the United States health care system in the near future.
Almost 1 in 2 children today have or will develop some kind of mental disorder, and more than 1 in 5 will have a debilitating illness – the most common one being ADHD. Illnesses such as asthma, allergies, diabetes, autism, and other chronic conditions are on the rise in children.
This situation is bad for those affected, their families, and the country. While modern medicine is good at keeping people alive longer, not necessarily being able to heal (when taking just the western medicine route) means more years of taking drugs, more surgeries, and more money spent; money that many people do not have.
As pediatrician Dr. Catherine DeAngelis said: “A chronic condition in a child will become a chronic condition in an adult — we just know that. And what you’re talking about for an adult is maybe 10, 20 years of suffering. But with a child, you’re talking about maybe 50, 60 years of suffering.”
And watching their children suffer early on with no answers from the doctors, many mothers are sick and tired of hearing that there is no known cause and that nothing can be done.
Could GMOs and Pesticides Be Responsible?
Recently, the Institute for Responsible Technology (IRT) interviewed mothers who have searched for and found the answers to one of the most fundamental axioms of human health – you are what you eat. What they found out is that what their kids were eating was causing and aggravating numerous health issues, from allergies to autistic symptoms.
What were the kids eating? Food made with genetically modified organisms, for one thing.
But simply making the switch to a non-GMO, all-organic diet helped their children and themselves to heal and greatly lessen the symptoms of the following health conditions, they say:
- Allergies, extended belly (abdominal swelling) and asthma
- Auto-immune disorder
- Asperger’s syndrome
- Colon cancer
- Severe digestive issues
- Autism spectrum disorder
- Collapsed sinuses
- Skin rashes
While Monsanto and other agrochemical and GMO companies continue to insist their products are “safe,” citing government-affiliated declarations, the number of parents who share these experiences has continued to grow.
“I have pages of parents who said their kids got better when they went off GMOs,” said Zen Honeycutt, the founder of Moms Across America and mother of a son who suffered from allergies and rashes before going on an organic diet.
For many kids, the results were so significant that the others could not believe their eyes.
“They have talked that he might have ADHD in addition to autism, and now since we’ve taken all of the genetically modified foods…away from him, his teachers would never guess that,” said Kimberly Ruckman, a mother of an autistic son.
“I have many patients who say once they’ve cleaned up their diet and have eaten strictly organically…have made incredible strides towards health. Doctors are learning the importance of eating non-GMO foods, and are now recommending them to their patients,” said doctor of integrative medicine, Hyla Cass, the author of The Addicted Brain: How to Break Free.
Health Conditions That Are Affected By Eating a Non-GMO Diet
A peer-reviewed article by Jeffrey Smith (the founder of IRT and author of Seeds of Deception and well-known Genetic Roulette, which was turned into a movie) sheds light on at least 28 conditions that were reported by parents.
Many of these disorders affected children and adults alike. On the top of the list are digestive problems, fatigue, obesity, brain fog, mood disorders, and allergies. But even severe and life-threatening illnesses such as cancer, autism, and dementia were improved by switching to a non-GMO diet.
GMOs, Digestion and Leaky Gut
It is a big clue that the number one condition that is improved by switching to organic food is digestion disorders. Dr. Cass has a theory to why that is:
“GMOs were…made to kill insects. Our gut is affected, just the way insect’s gut is. We have leaky gut,” said Dr. Cass.
After switching to a non-GMO diet, over 85% of people reported improved digestion, and over 16% had a total recovery. But it is not just the digestion that is positively connected. As Dr. Cass explains, our gut health is directly connected to our immune system and therefore our health as a whole.
“The symptom [of leaky gut] is an inflamed brain. An inflamed gut and an inflamed brain are going to look depressed, autistic, having ADD, all kinds of really bad ‘mental illnesses,’” said Dr. Cass.
Leaky gut, one of the most common issues today, is a condition in which there is damage to intestines, which leads to toxic waste products and bacteria leaking into a person’s blood.
It is not a condition that mainstream medicine yet understands, but growing amounts of research has linked it to many conditions, according to doctor of natural medicine Josh Axe. Leaky gut syndrome can manifest in the following symptoms: inflammation of the bowels, autoimmune disease, food sensitivities, thyroid issues, malabsorption of nutrients, skin inflammation, and mood disorders.
It can them lead to or exacerbate allergies, asthma, autism, arthritis, diabetes, and inflammation – all of the conditions discussed by the IRT.
To repair leaky gut, it is important to take probiotics, add healing foods and supplements (digestive enzymes, L-Glutamine amino acid, and licorice root) into the diet, but most importantly to remove GMO foods to see how your body responds.
Where to Start: Advice from Mothers
Changing the diet initially can be a little overwhelming, but there is no need to panic. Many families have made a gradual shift and now live a fully healthy lifestyle. One of the best ways to succeed is to follow advice from people who have, so here are some of the tips from mothers whose families switched to non-GMO diets.
Avoid the pitfall of going back to the old ways – you’ll be thankful later.
“You learn about it, and you say ‘wow, isn’t it horrible!’ but then you slowly go back to your regular life. For me, unfortunately, what it really took for me to awaken were the health issues with my boy. It’s not something you can do overnight,” said Kathleen Hallal, a mother whose son has an autoimmune condition.
Change your diet one step at a time
“I encourage moms to do it little by little…Here are the basic [GMO] crops. And I tell them to avoid those things, then I tell them about the hidden ingredients – the corn and the soy that’s in everything under those other names,”said Leah Segedie, a mother of a son with Asperger’s syndrome.
Spend your money on what’s most important
“The complaint I here from people is that it’s expensive. But it’s way more expensive [to have] all the doctor bills, and the hospital bills, and being out of work for 6 months…”
said Celia Xavier whose own diet led to arthritis.
Make the personal choice to eat healthy
As many mothers pointed out, the pro-GMO advertisements make it hard to impossible for the media to share the truth about genetically modified foods. While many countries around the world have banned GMOs, in the U.S., most companies refuse to even label them, and the FDA is closing their eyes.
In the end, it is up to the consumer to stop buying GMO products.
“[It is] mostly up to us to stop buying this GMO food. We stop buying it – they stop making it because it will not be economically viable anymore, and I want a GMO-free USA,” said Zen.

I bet you can’t guess which muscle in your body is the #1 muscle that eliminates joint and back pain, anxiety and looking fat.
This “hidden survival muscle” in your body will boost your energy levels, immune system, sexual function, strength and athletic performance when unlocked.
If this “hidden” most powerful primal muscle is healthy, we are healthy.
d) Hip Flexors
Take the quiz above and see if you got the correct answer!
P.S. Make sure you check out the next page to get to know the 10 simple moves that will bring vitality back into your life!
To begin, I apologize for the dark nature of today's email.
However I promise what you'll discover today will be completely worth it.
Imagine a rotting corpse draped over your body from head to toe...
...suffocating tissue, restricting blood flow, damaging joints and infecting your healthy cells.
Shockingly, that nightmare is a reality for most:
64% of women and 74% of men carry too much body fat according to the National Institutes of Health.
It's choking their organs, assaulting their metabolism and sucking their energy dry.
But here's the worst part:
For most, this bodyfat has become "calorie-resistant":
It's completely unaffected by even the strictest diets... and most intense exercises.
This zombie fat is essentially... "dead tissue".
That's important for those who have 10, 25 or 50 or more pounds to lose...
AND for those who aren't technically overweight, but have what's called "pocket obesity"...
...unsightly patches of fat that cling to specific places, like:
just above your hips, lower belly, where your butt and legs meet... and even arms, neck and face.
However, there's good news:
Obesity researchers have now discovered a "metabolic jumper cable":
It jolts dead bodyfat back to life.
This allows your metabolism to burn it as calories and re-energize your entire body.
First though, here's the #1 reason why bodyfat becomes calorie-resistant:
It lacks blood flow. This has 3 effects:
- Not enough oxygen or nutrients reach fat cells, so they become unresponsive..
- Released fat can't be sent to other tissues to be burned, so fat cells suck it back in...
- 3) Metabolic hormones carrying the "burn calories" message don't reach the fat cell...
All this means one thing:
Your body can't transform into energy, the 135,000+ of calories the average person stores as fat!
You become a metabolic zombie: NO energy to think. NO energy to move. NO energy to motivate.
Update: calorie-resistant bodyfat can be now removed...
The discovery of this "metabolic jumper cable" can now reverse this process:
- It wakes up un-responsive bodyfat with a powerful calorie-burning hormonal jolt....
- It pops open fat cells, sucks out the fat, sending it off before its yanked back in...
- It shuttles fat to your brain, heart, lungs, kidneys - even your bones - to be burned as energy.
Not only do those layers of "zombie fat" start coming off, but your entire body just works better.
Plus, as your whole body burns more calories, those patches of pocket obesity whittle away.
This "metabolic jumper cable" isn't any exercise, machine or pill.
It's a little-known, calorie-burning hormone we all have... just waiting for the right spark to come alive.
It's not thyroid, leptin, ghrelin, insulin, adiponectin, HGH or any other "fat loss" hormone you may know.
And on this next page, you'll find out precisely how to unleash its calorie-burning power:
PS - Studies show that not only can healthy levels of this powerful calorie-burning hormone devour bodyfat and fortify soft muscle, but it can also reduce your risk of diabetes by 53.7%, a heart attack by 83.3% and stroke by 51.4%. Here's more of the scientific proof...
In April, 2009, researchers stunned the medical community when they reported chronic inflammation as the root cause of several major diseases.
See, every year 610,000 people in the U.S. die of heart disease. Cancer claims another 584,000...stroke 130,000...Alzheimer's disease nearly 85,000 — and the list goes on.
Truth is, we now know... chronic inflammation is responsible for 7 out of the top 10 leading causes of death in the United States! Hundreds of studies and scientific reviews prove it.
Fortunately, newer research shows you can prevent-even reverse-most major diseases by "turning off" inflammation. And in our new book, we show you how to do just that.
If you or a loved one is suffering from a debilitating condition-and you"re not sure what the culprit is-now's the time to find out...while you can still do something about it!

Is Bread Really the Staff of Life… or the Stuff of Disease?
For most us, there are few foods more comforting than bread.
Fluffy biscuits, crusty baguettes, flaky croissants… even a simple slice of toast topped with melted butter can taste like heaven.
And that smell… few scents are quite as pleasant as fresh bread baking in the oven.
But there is a lot of confusion as to where bread fits into a healthy diet.
The Bible practically commands followers to eat it: “Give us this day our daily bread…” The government put it at the base of the food pyramid. And for centuries, it has been called “the staff of life.”
Of course, there are some who disagree…
Well-known cardiologist, Dr. William Davis, calls wheat “the perfect chronic poison.”
And for a poison, we sure eat lots of it…
The average American consumes 55 pounds of wheat flour every year, making refined flour the #1 source of calories in the American Diet – a situation that nutrition expert Chris Kresser describes as, “a public health catastrophe.”
So, what is the truth about bread and wheat?
- Is it the perfect poison… or an essential daily food?
- Is “gluten-free” bread better for you than regular bread?
- And can you still eat bread… while maintaining a lean body and optimal health?
The answers to these questions may surprise you!

Recently, Doctor of Naturopathy, weight-loss expert and best-selling Amazon author Liz Swann Miller, creator of the Red Smoothie Detox Factor, revealed 2 of the secrets to easy, steady weight loss. Secrets the big food corporations do their best to hide from us.
Secret #1: Enjoy real food. Don’t fall for the lie that you have to deprive yourself to lose weight.

You probably know most of us eat too much processed food. What you may not know is that it’s full of toxic chemicals and substandard, dirt-cheap ingredients designed to make you eat more…and force you to gain weight.
Here’s how it works.
“That stuff is just a lot of calories your body can’t use,” Liz told me, “Some are poison. And all these foods are stripped of the anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that help your body detox. The result? Your body expends huge amounts of calories to eliminate some toxins—the rest, it stores in your fat to protect you. This is why most people are hungry all the time. They’re not getting energy they need.”
“So… what’s going on with me? Why am I losing weight but not going hungry?”
Liz paused, then dropped the bombshell.
Your body is designed to burn fat. You just have to let it.
“What? I thought we were designed to store fat?!?” We were Skyping and I was practically shouting. Then I heard Liz say…
What good is a fat reserve if you can’t burn it?
Liz continued: “You’re drinking smoothies packed with phytonutrients, anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that pull toxins out of you like a tractor beam. Allowing your body to burn those toxin-filled fat stores… and releasing tremendous amounts of stored energy.”
So that’s why I’m losing weight without going hungry.

NOTE: I update these links often so please check back to see what's new!
1) Everyone knows green smoothies are healthy right? Have you heard of a “red” smoothie? If not, check out this story…
2) Forget what you've read about 10-day lemonade cleanses, 7-day detoxes with green juices and Gwyneth's gruel. All you need to do, and this is perfect for Saturday or or anytime really, is a simple 1-day cleanse.
3) This “hidden survival muscle” in your body will boost your energy levels, immune system, sexual function, strength and athletic performance when unlocked.

5) Turmeric is amazing. The problem is - It's hard to absorb!
6) Wonder why your stomach still sticks out even though you're hammering the core exercises every day? It's a common myth that bulging belly is due to weak abdominal muscles.
7) Even if you're the most active of athletes, you may still suffer from tight hip flexors due to the amount of time you spend each day planted to a chair.
Enjoy! Let me know how these work out for you. And if you run across anything I've missed please let me know.
