A Radical Rethinking of Medicine, Health, and Food

In this inspirational (and alarming) episode of The Autoimmune Hour, our guest experts, Michelle Perro, MD and Vincanne Adams, Ph.D. join Sharon Sayler, to explore the links between GM foods, pesticides like glyphosate, and the emerging science around our gut health. They will share their decades of experience, the latest research and action steps for change from their new book, ‘What’s Making Our Children Sick?: How Industrial Food Is Causing an Epidemic of Chronic Illness, and What Parents (and Doctors) Can Do About It.’

You don’t want to miss a minute as they offer us a path forward to help heal our kids, ourselves and reverse the compromised health of our food supply as well as answers to:

  • Why chronic disease and acute care for kids is on the rise.
  • How the food system and medical community need to change to keep our kids safe and healthy.
  • What you and your community can do to promote change in our food supply.
  • Why healing starts with the gut… plus so much more.

She has both directed and worked as attending physician from New York’s Metropolitan Hospital to UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital in Oakland.
