Despite all our advances in science, medicine and healthcare, chronic diseases are on the rise, and are affecting us — and our children — in epidemic proportions... So what the heck is making us so sick? Today’s podcast guest, Michelle Perro MD, has a powerful — and scary — answer to this question: it’s the food we eat. In today’s episode, Dr Perro connects the dots between what we put in our mouth (including the stuff we don’t even *realise* we’re eating) and our health. And BOY does she have some insights that will blow your mind...
Dr Michelle Perro, MD, is a veteran pediatrician, having been in clinical practice for 37 years. A little over a decade ago, Dr Perro’s personal journey led her to expand her focus to include pesticide and health advocacy. She’s since become a fierce advocate concerning the harmful role of GMO ‘food’ and pesticides on our health — and particularly their enormous impact on our kids.
Dr Perro drops so many truthbombs in this episode, I felt the need to grab a pen and notepad! Drawing on her clinical experience, medical research and the latest scientific findings, she paints a worrying picture of toxins sneaking into our bodies without us even knowing, and an industry more concerned with profit than health… but rest assured, there *is* hope, and she’s on a mission to help us ALL achieve true, feel-it-in-your-bones wellness.
So if you want to learn the truth about what’s hiding on your plate, uncover the frightening links between the food industry and the explosion in chronic disease, and figure out — once and for all — what (the frick!) you should eat to get and stay healthy, this episode is for you.
