Why Our Children Are Getting Dumber And Weaker

ADD, learning disorders, and dozens of other neurological problems have become rampant in children over the last few decades as their bodies have grown fat and failed to develop strength and balance.

Why? A perfect storm of brain-altering electronics, lack of outdoor play and exercise, fewer decision-making opportunities, worsening diets, and other lifestyle changes have played a huge role.

I episode 21 of the Raw Food Health Podcast we explore some of the interesting data on learning and physical activity.

Other topics:

1) Save money, the environment, and improve your skin with better shaving options.
2) How to avoid overeating on fruit.

    Hi Andrew,

    Just listened to your newest podcast. Discussion on kids was interesting. At 43, remember my childhood in a small town, heading out the door in summer by 8 or so, a quick return at lunch, then out again till dinner, no adults around. Times have changed.

    You mentioned shaving with a safety razor from a German co called “Merker”? Not sure if I heard right. Said you’d have notes on this co. I listened in ITunes Podcast, didn’t see the notes. Would you be so kind as to email me the co info & link?

    Thank you,

    Very good presentation and very factual .
    About 10-15 years back obesity in children ,ADHD and autism was very uncommon in Asia .But now it seems every other kid is being diagnosed with learning problems or attention deficit disorders and they are always fidgety or highly strung or some parent’s say ‘naughty’.
    At those times fast food ,western food were sort of a novelty and concentrated in the big cities only but now it’s wide spread around the country .
    In my opinion parent’s play a big part in influencing their kid’s health and it’s very disheartening to see kid’s as young as 2 years old at fast food joints with an electronic device to keep them occupied .
    Keeping kids occupied with television and electronic devices are one of the most detrimental things to the kids physical and mental development and it’s beyond reasoning for me when their parents answer that the kid throws a tantrum if they don’t get it or they will be up to mischief. Sad to say the 80’s and 90’s are long gone.
