  1. Antibiotics cause asthma in kids

    Big Pharma unleashes breathless-baby epidemic

    They say hell hath no fury like a woman scorned -- but a sick, agitated baby could give that gal a run for her money.

    There's nothing more terrifying than hearing your baby scream his lungs out, sick with a cold or fever, struggling to get comfortable. If you're like most folks, you're willing to use whatever antibiotic concoction the mainstream hands you to help him breathe a little easier.

    But that temporary relief may end up costing your child more than you ever imagined.

    Because it turns out the second you give your baby that first dropper-full of antibiotics, you may be sentencing him to a lifetime of wheezing, coughing, and sitting on the sidelines with asthma.

    British researchers studied more than 1,000 kids and found that those who were exposed to antibiotics early in life had DOUBLE the risk of developing asthma. That's because antibiotics can disrupt the development of your child's immune system, and it could leave him battling allergies the rest of his life.

    Mainstream docs like to hand out antibiotics like candy for ear infections and even colds, but trust me -- these drugs are more trick than treat. And a childhood filled with antibiotics could leave your kid wheezing, gasping for breath, and even unable to fight off the deadly infections that are spreading like wildfire all over the world.

    If you have a fussy baby, sometimes the best solution is to let his immune system work --and keep him away from Big Pharma's poison. A doctor skilled in integrative medicine can help you make the best decision for your little one. Letting him fight a little sickness now could help prevent much more serious -- and life-threatening -- illness down the road.

  2. Lather, rinse, risk

    Your baby's not a lab specimen... but you might be treating him like one if you're using one of the most common baby shampoos on the market.

    Johnson & Johnson's baby shampoos contain quaternium-15, a chemical that actually releases formaldehyde -- turning every bath into a science project and potentially exposing your baby to a risk of cancer in the name of squeaky-clean hair.

    And that's not the only potentially lethal ingredient in baby shampoo: The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics says its tests on J&J's shampoos also found dioxane, another known carcinogen that's actually proven to penetrate the skin.

    The CSC says it first found the chemicals in the shampoos back in early 2009 (I told you about it at the time), and the group has been pressuring J&J to stop poisoning babies ever since.

    You'd think that would be a goal everyone could agree on... but this is the same company busted last year for churning out contaminated baby meds in filthy factories with deplorable conditions.

    You might say baby safety isn't a high priority for them.

    In fact, the company even responded to the call for a boycott with a press release bragging about how there's only a little bit of cancer-causing chemicals left in their shampoos. They say they've already removed most of the dioxane, and they've reduced formulations with formaldehyde levels in their shampoos by 60 percent.

    Really??? This is something to be proud of???

    Somehow, I don't think "NOW WITH LESS FORMALDEHYDE" will make for a very enticing blurb on the package... so until they get it down to zero, let's stick to the boycott.

  3. OUTRAGE: Feds to test anthrax shot on kids

    It's the biggest medical scandal in U.S. history... and it hasn't even happened yet! The feds are getting ready to pump children and possibly babies full of the anthrax vaccine -- despite the fact that this same vaccine has already been linked to nerve damage, autoimmune disorders and even DEATH in adults.
  4. Babies being pumped full of PPIs

    It's bad enough that docs are pushing dangerous and unnecessary stomach acid meds on adults -- but now, a growing number of pediatricians are throwing those same meds at infants who spit up or puke.
  5. Poking the pregnant

    Would you give your newborn a drug that hasn't been studied in infants? Of course you wouldn't -- and you certainly wouldn't expose a fetus to that kind of risk, either.
