The National Heirloom Expo took place in Santa Rosa, California last week. I had the the honor of moderating a panel at this event with the esteemed, Dr. Don Huber a scientist, Zen Honeycutt of Moms Across America, and Dr. Michelle Perro, a pediatrician from Marin County. The title of our talk was: What is Making Our Kids Sick. We were able to video the talk and are bringing it to all of you! It offers great information on what the problems are and what we can do about it to protect our health and the health of our children.
Here are the bios on the panel experts:
Dr. Don Huber. Dr. Huber is an award-winning, internationally recognized scientist and professor emeritus of plant pathology at Purdue University for 50 years – five decades. His agriculture research is focused on the epidemiology and control of soil-borne plant pathogens. Dr Huber has been studying plants for over 60 years. He has received various awards for his scientific accomplishments and contributions to government. Dr. Huber is also a father, a grandfather and has had a 41-year military career and is now a retired Colonel, having evaluated natural and manmade biological threats, including germ warfare and disease outbreaks and worked on committees that are part of the USDA National Plant Disease Recovery System under Homeland Security. Quite honestly, his bio reads like that of one of our country’s greatest heroes. I know that Dr. Huber is really concerned about the health of our children, grandchildren and generations to come because of the use of all the toxic chemicals on our food and environment.
