A Compromised Generation reveals how seemingly benign
elements of American culture are making millions of children chronically
ill, disabled, or dysfunctional. Children are being diagnosed with
illnesses such as autism, asthma, allergies, diabetes, and ADHD at a breathtaking
The etiology of autism continues to confound mainstream medicine, yet
parents, medical researchers, and healthcare practitioners dedicated to
unraveling the mystery are beginning to put the pieces of the puzzle
into place. They have found that environmental factors that cause autism
are the same ones causing epidemics of ADHD, juvenile diabetes, asthma,
gastrointestinal disorders, and many other chronic illnesses.
Although the specific pathophysiology of each individual child’s illness varies, they all have the same basic underlying causes.
It is a “perfect storm” of environmental factors including decades of
pharmaceutical over-usage, toxic or nutritionally anemic diets,
excessive exposure to environmental toxins, specific American habits and
lifestyles, and excessive or improperly administered vaccines. A Compromised Generation provides details on how this epidemic
can be reversed and how to prevent more children from becoming
ill, supplying evidence that children can recover from chronic
illnesses, including autism, by altering their environmental influences
and by stepping outside of the traditional western medical paradigm.
