What is it about food??  Why is it such an untouchable obsession??

Here is a very short look at the “diet thing” for those of you not familiar with the whole autism/diet issue.  Some proteins in some foods leak out of the gut, cross the blood brain barrier and wreak havoc in the brain.  Some substances are known as excitotoxins and are killing brain cells –wreaking havoc causing everything from autism to seizures to migraines… to… well… everything.  Artificial dyes are causing hyperactivity and are also petroleum based carcinogens… And there is more, lots more!! Some food issues are specific to those with metabolic disorders such as autism, but some –like the artificial colors and MSG and various other poisons in “processed foods” affect everyone.

Let’s face it, Americans eat TOXIC WASTE
But we (the vast majority WE, not the smart WE ;) ) just don’t eat TOXIC WASTE… we love it… DEFEND IT…. We defend it like we’re fucking it every Friday night and occasionally on Tuesdays….  We defend it like an abusive husband.  “Oh… Red Dye #40 didn’t MEAN to make my kid cut herself, he really does love her you know?”

Most people cannot even comprehend that food is the problem, they don’t even make the connection –they’re not even trying to think about it.  Some have an idea that food is the issue, but get angry at the thought of it and take up a “don’t fuck with my food” attitude.

Recently someone said to me, “Humans are adaptable, we can eat anything!”  –really, you think so?  Look around –the leading causes of death stem from the shit we shove in our pie holes!

My father is dealing with Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA).  I got him reading Dr. Mercola –it seemed for a moment that he JUST MIGHT come around!! HE was getting into the idea of alternative treatments and NO MEDS…. until I showed him the info on Mercola’s site about diet change… “Oh.. well… blah blah too late for me… blah blah not going to take away my food blah blah”  –I think my reply was “Fine but I’m not going to wipe your ass when your older.”

I know of small children that have ADHD, ADD, ODD, Bi-fucking-polar, borderline personality disorder –and various other bull shit diagnoses… Their parents are too quick to accept the alphabet soup Dx and push the ineffective, harmful, black-box-warning having PILLS down their kid’s throats –but not proper nutrition!!  diet diet diet… change the diet….

It’s EASIER to shove pills down a throat than to shove broccoli down it I guess!  They say, “What?? where is the proof that that works, My kid only eats pop-tarts he’ll never survive”

FUCK ME.  Want proof… think back to cellular biology. Ponder the cell.  It’s thrilling, right?  Now… picture it working perfectly with perfect nutrition… now… just add toxic waste. BAM!

When we suggest to these families –those with auto-immune, behavioral and neurological disorders, that they change their diet we don’t even get the polite head nods to trick us into thinking they are listening…. no… we are often shut out, have BS “science” thrown back at us and are told that it’s too hard.

A decade ago those of us who we’re doing the “autism diet” were looked at as mean, crazy, perhaps abusive –for putting our kids on such a “restrictive” diet that doesn’t work.  Restrictive???? Let’s see… my son used to only eat McDonald’s french fries and gummy bears and diet soda and soy milk. Now he drinks water and loves chicken salads.  Yeah. Abusive.

WHAT DOCTOR out there can say the first diet was better and NOT expect me to throat punch them?


Chewable Cholesterol meds for tots!!!!!! GASTRIC FUCKING BYPASS SURGERY FOR CHILDREN.
“Sorry Tommy, you’ll never be able to eat like a human being again b/c mommy can’t bear to be A PARENT and take away your sugar-coated, ultra-blue, deep-fried CRACK COCAINE!


Shit, it isn’t easy. Kids like that crack for a reason! We are at war in this house as the last of the “bad food” finds it’s way cooked, consumed and never to be replaced.  The kids were ready to call 911 the other night when I wouldn’t dismiss them from the table until they ate some rice and carrots.  I’m such a bitch.

I have chronic inflammation.  GFCFSF-everything free is necessary for our well being and survival.  Liam’s behavior… My RA/Seizures… Gavin’s everything…  (we’re actually going to try a mostly raw diet here).

You know.. I KIND OF get it –when I think about giving up my bitchin’ Lasagna I get all mad and wonder “WHY ME!!!”    –after all, we were engaged to be married!!!

BUT TELL ME WHY???  JUST WHY?? What is it about food?? Is it the emotional attachment???  Is it the drugging/addiction thing?? Why do people simply SHUT DOWN when we suggest that they need to clean up their food source??
I DO NOT get why people are so blind to it that they won’t even consider a diet change to SAVE THEIR lives or their kids lives or their sanity!

PLEASE comment!! Help me figure this out!! And for those of you who are ready to defend your Standard American Diet, please do.  I want to hear why you won’t even consider that our lifestyle of processed foods is bad for us. Help me understand because once the website is up I will be writing about this in detail and I want your input. And, for the choir I am preaching too… WHAT is the DUMBEST thing anyone has ever said to you about your child’s special diet?

Some Links:

Study shows that diet may help more than drugs!! –uh.. DUH! You think?

Ever wonder how they get Iron in your cereal?? –Anyone have a file and a chunk of metal?
