SafBaby shares knowledge throughout the year with the hope that it will help you strengthen the health of your child in every way. We often cover topics that are not discussed enough or offer a more integrated perspective than what is generally presented in the mainstream culture.

As the year comes to a close, we wanted to highlight those articles we thought were most important. Covering every age range, these posts made it into our top 5 because they bring to light information that you may not have heard before. More importantly, this information can have lifelong impacts on your child’s health and well-being. Read on … for your child’s health.

1. Formula? Wait! Try This First

Perhaps the greatest misunderstanding about breast milk is that it’s ‘just food’. Actually, breast milk is a highly sophisticated signaling system developed over millions of years that relays information to the baby to develop adequate metabolic, hypothalamic and immunologic programming that can affect their whole life. Formula interferes with this signaling and the effects are lifelong. Read about other options before automatically choosing formula.

The incidence of environmental allergies is rising and affecting children at younger and younger ages. Leading causes include climate change, pollution and super-charged pollen. Standard medical treatment for allergies typically involves suppressing symptoms which does not get to the root of the problem. This two-part series explains why the increase in allergies is so dramatic and why the cure lies in strengthening a child’s immune system.

“People who started using mobiles young were five times more likely to contract gliomas (a type of brain tumour) reports Dr. Lennart Hardell, professor in oncology and cancer epidemiology at the University Hospital in Orebro, Sweden and his research team. And in January of this year, doctors and scientists issued a statement requesting that WHO/IARC immediately conduct the appropriate scientific review within IARC to move RF/EMF radiation from its current class, 2B, to class 1, known carcinogen, based on review of the complete scientific database. Cell phones affect all of us, but children are the most vulnerable. Find out the steps you can take to protect your child.

A must-watch for everyone, especially parents, “Vaxxed” documents the revelation by Dr. William Thompson, a Senior Scientist at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), that his co-workers, supervisors and others in the upper echelons of the CDC led him to hide findings that indicated there was a link between autism and the MMR vaccine. “Vaxxed” also interviews scientists who have conducted their own extensive research; doctors who have witnessed reactions in their practice; and parents who vaccinated without question, only to watch their own child’s life-threatening reaction or regression into autism following vaccination.
