GMO-FREE CHILD: A Parent's Guide to Dietary Cleanup of Genetically Modified Organisms

GMO-Free Child looks like a great book. Do you plan any additional health related books down the road?
I don’t have any other health books lined up yet, although I’m currently focusing on several young children’s books that I’ve had in cue for a while now. I’m working with an illustrator on the first one titled Car Pets, with an expected release on Amazon Kindle in December. This is a fun little storybook that explores silly concepts around “what if” cars were like pets.

What do you think makes a good parenting book? An effective parenting book will empower and influence parents to make meaningful changes with practical solutions to their everyday struggles. GMO-Free Childdoes just that, helping parents take action so they can successfully navigate the changing foodscape in order promote healthy eating in their children.

What inspired you to write GMO-Free Child?My four-year-old was diagnosed with 62 food allergies in 2008. I was devastated and very confused as to how to proceed, so I went back to school to study holistic health and nutrition. At the time, my education and experience was in criminology and journalism, so my investigative skills were well-prepared for the eight years of research that ensued. I soon discovered, in the two decades following the introduction of GMOs to market, the CDC reported that our children saw an estimated:

  • 400% increase in allergies
  • 300% increase in asthma
  • 400% increase in ADHD
  • 1,500 to 6,000% increase in
    Autism-Spectrum Disorders (ASD).

I was floored by the independent GMO feeding studies on animals showing a variety of concerning outcomes and health conditions like digestive and immune system disorders, allergies, liver damage, tumors and even cancer. Biotech scientists have redesigned the very structure of our genetic core and the keys to life on this planet to meet a corporate agenda. Think of it like a Rubik’s Cube. This random process amounts to an enormous assault on public health and the human rights of every individual. Now we are experiencing a full-blown public health emergency and parents need to take action. Our children trust us to protect them. GMO Free Child: A Parent’s Guide to Dietary Cleanup of Genetically Modified Organisms fully facilitates this mission, empowering parents to teach their children how to successfully navigate this hostile food environment to promote a life of health and longevity.

When did you decide to become a writer?
I always knew that writing was my calling from a very young age. It allows me to work through exactly what I want to say without interruption or emotional reactions that might affect the message. I much prefer writing over speaking to an audience. I think it’s a much more effective mode of communication, allowing the reader to take as much time as needed to comprehend in the information.

When writing GMO-Free Childdid anything stand out as particularly challenging? As I noted earlier, this book is a summary of research compiled over an eight year period. This story is ever-evolving with new studies and disclosures announced just about every week. I developed a database of information around the topic of GMOs and their companion pesticide Roundup. I also conducted several expert interviews. Assembling all of this data into a practical and engaging format was like solving a million-piece puzzle that changes shape every day.

What are independent scientists reporting about GMOs and Roundup?
Dr. David Suzuki is a geneticist and former professor at the University of British Columbia. He reports, “In a human being a mutation … can determine whether you’re crippled or you die. Just because they’re tiny particles, doesn’t mean they’re not potent… when you move a gene, one gene, one tiny gene… out of this organism into a different one, you change completely its context.” We have no idea what the outcomes or health effects will be in our children as a result of this genetic reorganization.

In addition, the active ingredient in Roundup is glyphosate. This toxic pesticide is sprayed on GMO crops and is patented as an antibiotic, because it kills most varieties of bacteria, both good and bad. It is also generously sprayed on conventional Non-GMO crops like wheat, oats, beans and sugarcane days before harvest to dry out the crops. They know that glyphosate kills our gut bacteria, damaging the immune system, along with our ability to detoxify and produce serotonin, leaving us and our children at high risk for depression. Does this perhaps correlate with an epidemic of mass shootings in the U.S. since 1999, just three years following these changes to our food supply?

GMO Free Child is THE book to give a new mom! April Scott compiles all you need to know to navigate the toxic food supply with ease and raise a healthy GMO-free child in this essential guidebook. She gathers the science, explains the food system clearly, and uses her criminology background to suss out the corruption in our food system. She also explains the solutions and provides inspiring testimonials. If you or your friends are concerned about allergies, a fussy baby, picky eater, behavioral issues or autoimmune conditions, grab a couple copies of this book and share it. It is up to us, moms, parents, and grandparents, to protect our families!”
