Forewarned Is Forearmed: CHD E-book Helps Parents-to-Be Navigate Risky CDC Recommendations

The new Children’s Health Defense e-book, “A Parents’ Guide to Healthy Children: From Preconception to Early Childhood,” delves into issues related to pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding, home and car safety, and toxic exposures including vaccines.

Historically, immediate and extended family members have been the primary sources of advice to prospective or new parents, transmitting their advice orally.

Beginning in the 17th century, a different and unfortunate trend took hold — one that persists to the present day — wherein high-status professionals such as physicians and ministers persuaded parents to “distrust their own instincts” or their relatives’ advice in favor of published child-rearing literature.

Nowadays, parenting books are a dime a dozen and even include a burgeoning subgenre addressed to parents of kids with autism and learning disabilities.

However, while advising parents on how to manage these chronic problems — typically with pharmaceutical products and usually according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines — few such books, if any, mention the glaring elephants in the room.

Those “elephants” are the toxic exposures — such as vaccination, ultra-processed food, glyphosate, fluoride and wireless radiation — that contribute to so many children’s physical and developmental woes in the first place.

The new Children’s Health Defense e-book, “A Parents’ Guide to Healthy Children: From Preconception to Early Childhood,” is different from other garden-variety, CDC-reliant parenting treatises.

Starting with preconception

Importantly, the e-book begins with a chapter on preconception planning, discussing factors that influence both female and male fertility, and the advisability of eliminating or reducing preconception exposure to environmental toxins.

The chapter also discusses the importance of a nutrient-dense preconception diet, emphasizing that what parents-to-be eat matters.

Subsequent chapters delve into issues related to pregnancy, childbirth and the child’s first year, encompassing topics such as the infant gut microbiome, breastfeeding, the transition to solid foods and childhood illness as a normal (and not-to-be-feared) process of detoxification and regeneration, as well as covering topics like imaginative play, home and car safety and parent self-care.

A chapter on environmental exposures discusses synthetic chemicals, neurotoxic metals, fluoride and radiation electromagnetic fields, or EMFs.

Importantly, and unlike books that parrot CDC mantras, the e-book does not shy away from extensively covering the risks of both prenatal and postnatal vaccination.

It notes, “As of 2018, children born in the U.S. were 26% more likely to die before their first birthday than infants born in 19 other wealthy nations,” adding that vaccination is a “likely and logical explanation for these sudden baby deaths” but is “an avenue that the CDC and AAP [American Academy of Pediatrics] will neither concede nor explore.”

The e-book also points out that while medical websites furnish lengthy lists of drugs capable of causing birth defects, the same sites persist in peddling the false CDC line that vaccines (regulated as “biologics”) are somehow different, and that flu shots, for example, are safe any time during pregnancy.

With the CDC now urging pregnant women to get four vaccines, including COVID-19 shots, it is more important than ever for prospective parents to be informed ahead of time and to understand vaccination’s sordid history.

CDC manipulates developmental milestones

Casting further doubts on the CDC’s role as an arbiter of child well-being, a chapter on developmental milestones discusses how in 2022, the agency and the AAP revised their 2004 pediatric developmental milestone checklists, designed to help parents identify developmental delays.

As the e-book explains, the revised guidelines delete outright more than half of the previous developmental milestones — including crawling! — while also bumping roughly a third of the milestones (such as fine motor skills) to older age groups and adding markers of autism.

As another example of the changes, whereas the 2004 guidelines suggested that a developmentally healthy 2-year-old should have an average vocabulary of 50 words, the revised guidelines defer the target age for reaching this milestone to 2.5 years.

CDC implemented its revisions around the same time that evidence was emerging to indicate that restrictive COVID-19 measures (such as masking, social distancing, social isolation and lockdowns) had dramatically increased developmental delays among children.

Reclaiming parental intuition

Parents of vaccine-injured children often report — after the fact — that they ignored an inner voice warning them not to play vaccine “Russian roulette” with their children’s health.

The now-falling childhood vaccination rates and rising use of vaccine exemptions suggest that parents in the post-COVID-19 era are getting better at listening to that voice.

More parents understand, as Katherine Watt of Bailiwick News recently put it, that agencies like the CDC and U.S. Food and Drug Administration are engaged in “pretend-regulation” and that vaccines have, from smallpox on up to mRNA vaccines, “always been heterogeneous mixtures of toxins used to intentionally sicken people.”

The fact that two states (Mississippi and West Virginia), which for decades didn’t allow vaccine exemptions other than hard-to-obtain medical exemptions, are now adding religious exemptions is another sign that both the parental and official tide is turning.

In short, recognizing the extraordinary “governmental and pharmaceutical overreach” experienced by Americans over the past four years, “A Parents’ Guide to Healthy Children” supports the reinvigoration of parental intuition and parents’ right to make “health decisions and choices for themselves and their children without interference.”
