"We are facing an unprecedented crisis in our nation and the Western world. There has been a meteoric rise in the rates of autism, developmental delays, learning disabilities, allergy, asthma, autoimmune diseases and more in the way of chronic and debilitating diseases. And tragically, we are losing a large portion of the next generation of children to neurological, neurodevelopmental, behavioral and learning disabilities.
"According to statistics released by the CDC in 2008, 1 in 6 children suffered from either autism or some form of developmental problems. Now 12 years later, given the increasing prevalence and current estimates, that number may be as high as 1 child in 4!And, those statistics show that these developmental delays including behavioral and learning disabilities are continuing to increase at alarming rates.And, all of the learning and behavioral conditions have a prevalence much higher in boys.
"In addition, all across the spectrum, the rates of allergy, asthma and autoimmunity are nearing epidemic proportions. Autoimmunity is where the body’s immune system attacks certain tissues or organs. There have been over 100 autoimmune diseases identified now, affecting more than 50 million Americans (that is approximately 1 in 6). The prevalence continues to grow at alarming rates. And, autoimmune diseases have a much higher prevalence in females. (All references are provided in the eBook)"
