WHAT EVERY PARENT SHOULD CONSIDER
In the Information Age Ignorance is a Choice. Not only that, it could mean the difference between life and death. With autism rates skyrocketing to 1 in 88, developmental disorders at an astounding 1 in 6, and one of the highest maternal and newborn death rates in the world, could we really trust the current medical system with our baby’s life? This is a question that every parent and every parent-to-be should ask themselves. When we found out my wife was pregnant, we decided we would not be another statistic. Instead we found strength, power, and beauty in taking our baby’s life into our own hands. Set in San Francisco, The Crunchies is a heartwarming tour de force, interweaving our family’s story with compelling, hard-hitting research into controversial topics such as natural homebirth, GMOs, autism, breastfeeding, vaccines, SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome), chemical toxins, and EMF radiation. Putting our research into practice, we slowly became “Crunchy” - those hippie loving, eco-friendly folks who live in an alternate Universe, before corporate food production, chemical consumerism, and obstetrician hospital births. Inspiring, thought-provoking, and funny, this book may very well end up being a blueprint for families looking for an alternative way of living in these increasingly critical times filled with infinite potential and beauty.
