Protect your children!

If someone - say a medical reporter for the newspaper you read - gave you the following facts about a certain ingestible item, what would you do? Would you worry about how much of this item your child has ingested in his or her lifetime? Would you ensure your home was free of this item?

Think about these statistics. Think about how you would react to reading an article that provided this information.
  1. More than 98 percent of convicted felons use this item.
  2. Fully HALF of all children who grow up in households that consume this item score below average on standardized tests.
  3. In the 18th century, when this item was made in the home, the average life expectancy was less than 50 years; infant mortality rates were unacceptably high; many women died in childbirth; and diseases such as typhoid, yellow fever, and influenza ravaged whole nations.

This item is associated with all the major diseases of the body. The effects are obviously cumulative:

  • 99.9 percent of all people who die from cancer have eaten this item
  • 99.7 percent of the people involved in air and auto accidents ate this item within 6 months preceding the accident
  • 93.1 percent of juvenile delinquents came from homes where this item is served frequently

Now, visit to find out what this terrifying item is…and, think carefully the next time you read an article that convinces you to be afraid, be very afraid, of something like, oh, say, the chicken pox.
