In his new book,
The Sanctity of Human Blood, author Tim O'Shea says, "Despite the highest intake of antibiotics and vaccines of any group of children in history, our kids are fatter, sicker, and dumber than ever before."
At a DAN! conference I attended last year, one of the researchers speaking said they have actually whittled down the I.Q. tests in our country, making them less difficult than they were for previous generations.
One in six kids has a developmental delay these days. 1 in 84 boys has autism.
I don't for a second think autistic kids, or kids with other developmental delays are dumb, but we do owe it to them, and to generations that follow, to know what we're doing to their bodies.
The future of our country depends on us. We need to stop hitting the snooze button.
