Childhood Diseases: What You Can Do to Change The Odds in Your Child’s Favor

Dr. Greene’s take on childhood diseases…


When I was a kid, none of my peers had type 2 diabetes. I didn’t know anyone with a life-threatening peanut allergy. The label ADHD was rarely used.

Today more kids will live with a chronic medical condition in childhood than won’t.

Read that again. It would be unbelievable if it weren’t so pervasive.

Allergies, asthma, ADHD, autism, high blood pressure, and type 2 diabetes are all on the rise. All threaten our kids.

Watch this video to find out why there has been a sudden rapid increase in childhood diseases and easy ways to change the odds in your child’s favor.

It’s not a guarantee for any child, but what you do as a parent makes a difference and that’s good news.

Have you taken any of these steps to help improve your child’s condition or to help prevent one?
