Some staggering stats about the latest generation of children and the diseases that are affectinghtem. It is an absolute shame we continue to assaut their immune systems with unsafe vaccines.

400% increase in food allergies

300% increase in asthma

400% increase in ADHD

400% increase in Celiac Disease

1,500 to 6,000 increase in autism

45% of children will be insulin dependent within ten years

Why Your Children Will Be Sicker Than You.

The Perfect Storm: The Proof is in the Population

Over the past twenty years, a lot has changed, and we are seeing the results in each (sicker) generation of children. I am always amazed to find out how certain shifts in our environment and culture affect our health. Small changes go long way when significant percentages of the population take part,knowing or unknowingly.

The poor health of each generation can be partly to blame on a weakened immune system and the rising rates of obesity. By a perfect storm, I mean, what happens when breast feeding declines, vaccine schedules and c-sections increase, GMO foods are eaten, and toxins are present everywhere.

Measles!

Measles may protect kids against

allergies

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) – Children who’ve been infected with measles are less likely to develop allergies, a large study in Europe has demonstrated.

The occurrence of allergic disorders has increased during past decades, coinciding with reduced rates of many childhood infections and increasing use of vaccinations, Helen Rosenlund, at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, and colleagues note in the medical journal Pediatrics.

However, previous studies looking for any link between allergies, measles infection, and measles vaccination have produced positive, negative and neutral results.

In the PARSIFAL study, researchers focused on children brought up in a farming and “anthroposophic” lifestyle. They explain that an anthroposophic lifestyle typically makes less use of antibiotics, medication to treat fevers, and vaccinations; it also involves high consumption of “biodynamic” foods.

The study included 12,540 children 5 to 13 years of age. According to the investigators, questionnaire responses indicated that 73 percent of children were vaccinated against measles, 20 percent had been infected with measles (including 11 percent of vaccinated children), and 14 percent had been neither vaccinated nor naturally infected.

Among the children who never had measles infection, those who had been vaccinated were more likely to have nasal allergies, Rosenlund’s group observed.

Further analysis showed that allergies were less likely in children who had had a bout of measles, but not in those who had been vaccinated against measles.
