Part 1: Why Is the Medical Community Confounded Over the Sudden Surge of Inflammatory Bowel Disease in Children?
Canadian doctors have noted that the rates of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in children have grown exponentially. Canada currently has the highest rate of IBD in the world. Generally, the disease would show around age 20. Recently, though, prevalence in children under 5 has been increasing. Researchers suspect that a combination of factors could be to blame, including diet, genetics, environment, impaired immune response, and low vitamin D. Dr. Eric Benchimol, a pediatric gastroenterologist at the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario, commented, "You speak to some of the older doctors who have been practicing for 20 or 30 years, they almost never saw children under five (diagnosed). Now it’s almost a regular occurrence."
The medical community seems stymied over the cause of IBD and fail to connect the dots right before their eyes. Clearly, they are quoting that the older practicing doctors for 20 to 30 years as never having seen such a crisis, and the question that begs to be answered is this: what have we done as a society that is different and common practice today that did not exist 20 to 30 years ago? For one, we never had glyphosate sprayed on most of our GMO food crops and such highly processed food additives. And while we did have heavy amounts of antibiotics in the food and by prescriptions, it was not in conjunction with these new death eaters.
In Part 2 we will examine how vaccines and antibiotic use may be connected to the rise in IBD in children.
