1 in 68: Autism’s Rising Prevalence

Posted by: HealthySelf Guest Blogger on Apr 11, 2014 in Health

April is Autism Awareness Month. The rates of children being diagnosed with autism have skyrocketed in the past 40 years and is predicted to keep going up. Today, 1 in every 68 kids is diagnosed with autism.

The following post was written by pediatrician Bob Sears, a primary-care pediatrician in Capistrano Beach, California, and the author of The Autism Book. “Dr. Bob,” for the blog autismspeaks.com. Dr. Sears is one of three pediatrician sons of the well-known pediatrician William Sears and pediatric nurse Martha Sears. More about their “family practice” can be found at www.askdrsears.com.

For years, many in the medical community have claimed that autism spectrum disorder (ASD) isn’t truly on the rise – that we simply have better diagnosis. I believe that these numbers reveal autism for what it truly is – a national public health priority.

Eating With the Enemy

Posted by: Cynthia Toups on Apr 03, 2014 in Health, Nutrition

I’ve written before about changing my diet in order to eat healthier—swapping processed foods for whole foods; cutting down on sugar and bad fats; adding more fiber and protein. For the most part the transition has been relatively painless and I’ve seen positive results.

Still, I have my weaknesses. Mainly, my addiction to crispy, salty snacks. Needless to say my on-again off-again relationship with Frito Lay has presented some challenges. After limited success with portion control, I decided I needed a bridge, a kind of partially hydrogenated methadone to wean myself off the snack smack.
