Summary
Using patient accounts of their clinical experiences and new medical insights about pathogenesis of chronic pediatric disorders -- taking us into gut dysfunction and the microbiome, as well as the politics of food science -- this book connects the dots to explain our kids' ailing health. Michelle Perro explores the frightening links between our efforts to create higher-yield, cost-efficient foods and an explosion of childhood morbidity, but it also offers hope and a path to effecting change
