Today’s Bulletproof Radio guest is Dr. Michelle Perro who is a 37-year veteran of pediatrics in acute care and integrative medicine, which means that she has truly been on the front line of caring for children.

Over the past couple of decades, she has personally witnessed the decline in kids’ health and also the increase in the environmental load our children are experiencing.  In fact, this issue affected her so much that she wrote a book about it, What’s Making our Children Sick.  In this podcast episode, we help you understand what’s going on inside the children of today and how we can potentially lower their environmental burden.

Dr. Perro is also the Executive Director of the non-profit website, gmoscience.org, which explores the links between genetically modified food, the pesticides that come with them, and how that impacts food, health and agriculture.
