Increase in Autism Rates

A new report released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 1 in 88 American children has some form of autism spectrum disorder. That’s a 78% increase in 10 years.

The increase in numbers are attributed to better diagnosis, broader diagnosis, and better awareness. However, according to Mark Roithmayr, president of the advocacy group Autism Speaks, the reason for about 50% of the increase is unknown.

Research has pointed to environmental changes as one of the reasons for this increase. The three BIG environmental influences seem to be:

1) Pesticides: Infants and small children should be consuming organic foods as much as possible. Especially when it comes to fruits, vegetables and dairy.

2) Overuse of antibiotics: Ear infections are very common in children and so is prescribing antibiotics. Most ear infections are viral and will not be helped by antibiotics. Overuse can cause resistance to superbugs, as well as lowered immunity. Continue reading “Increase in Autism Rates”

New Guidelines for Sinus Infections: NO ANTIBIOTICS

New guidelines by the Infectious Diseases Sociey of America (IDSA) say that treating sinus infections with antibiotics (standard practice in the US ) won’t help most cases and may actually do more harm.

According to the IDSA, sinus infections are the fifth leading reason for antibiotic prescriptions, but as many as 98% are caused by viruses. Antibiotics do not and cannot treat viruses. Because there is no easy way to determine whether the infection is viral or bacterial, many doctors prescribe antibiotics… just in case. The problem with this is that since most infections aren’t bacterial, the antibiotics won’t help and can actually increase antibiotic resistance.

If you are one of the millions of Americans suffering from sinus infections every year, there are options that can help ease your symptoms. Check out the Sinus Survivial Program by Dr. Rob Ivker. His protocol has helped many people who have suffered for years. Through diet, nasal irrigation and supplements, you can finally have relief from sinus congestion and infections.

FDA vs the Dairy Industry

In my house we only drink organic milk and I get teased by people who think I am crazy to spend $10 for a gallon of organic milk (actually, I pay that for 4 litres of milk… I live in Canada), especially when regular milk costs less than half that amount. Personally, I would rather spend less on clothing, trips and gas (for example), and more on quality food for my family. I know there isn’t any possible way that I can protect my family from all the crap that is out there, but this is one area where I can choose to say no to antibiotic-ridden milk. I know, another alternative is to go dairy-free, but I love it, my son loves it, and so I am going to do the best  I can.

The FDA is trying to crack down on the dairy industry because of the use of antibiotics in older cows. The dairy industry isn’t having it. Read this article in the New York Times, and tell us what you think.
