First it was Tobacco, which shamelessly peddled its cancer causing nicotine spiked sticks to children.

Next we had sodas and energy drinks mixing unhealthy amount of sugar and caffeine (both addictive) and marketed it shamelessly to kids.

Then we had melamine tainted milk products which killed both pets and scores of children in China.

That was followed by a blend of ground beetles added by Starbucks just to pretty up its drink.

Now we have the chewing gum industry going after our children with Caffeine laden gums.

A growing number of caffeine-added food and beverage products are also being marketed by companies looking to tap into the fast-growing kids “energy” products market. Example: Jelly Belly Extreme Sport Beans and Frito-Lay’s Cracker Jack’D.

Will they ever stop? Don’t they have a conscience?

According to the FDA and Reuters, the number of chemicals in the food supply has risen from fewer than 2,000 to an estimated 10,000, many of which are never reviewed by the FDA. It also cited research by the Pew Charitable Trusts showing that at least 3,000 chemicals used in food/beverages have never been reviewed by the FDA. Could they cause Autism, cancer or other mental ailments? You bet it could.

And do you think these food manufacturers care?


If it comes come a plant, eat it; if it is made in a plant, avoid it.

By training, I am a American Board Certified Pediatrician. But in my younger years I grew up with natural alternatives. As a mom I have tried to incorporate both for my kids and it has worked wonders. And finally, as I am studying natural & alternative medicines, I realize the beauty and wisdom of living closer to earth. Hence in my practice I integrate both...for acute ailments I follow American Academy of Pediatrics recommendation but for simple and/or chronic conditions I prefer natural alternatives. In western training we were raised to think that "health is the absence of symptoms and problems". But eastern sensibilities has educated me that "Health is state that allows one to use the full capabilities of their body, mind and intellect. Therefore, healthy living is a balanced state of well being: physically, mentally, socially and spiritually." This implies that healing is not a "one-pill-fits-all", but a personalized experience.
