Sunday on The Robert Scott Bell Show:
Holistic Healthcare going main-stream? New guidelines are out today from the American Academy of Pediatrics. They recommend that, during routine checkups, physicians also screen children for poverty. By asking if parents have a hard time paying bills, the AAP considers appointments more “holistic”. Financial distress in the home can certainly impact the health and well-being of children, however, is asking the parents if they feel short on cash, really getting to the root of the problem? And is sending them along to the welfare office going to do anything more than sticking a band-aid on a bad situation?
Is it ADHD? Or just immaturity? New research shows that the youngest students in a classroom are more likely to be given a diagnosis of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder than the oldest. The findings raise questions about how we regard those wiggly children who just can’t seem to sit still – and who also happen to be the youngest in their class. Sadly, it seems more and more that children are being made for school, verses school for children. Hopefully parents will be strong enough to advocate for their kids rather than assuming their is something wrong with a child who has extra energy, or does not conform to one strict method of education made for a low-threshold of intelligence in the masses.

The next time Grandma criticizes your multiple tattoos, tell her they might just be a sign that you’re healthy. According to the research, “Tattooing may stimulate the immune system in a manner similar to a vaccination to be less susceptible to future pathogenic inﬁltration.” While the study has a small sample size and is not yet conclusive, it provides fascinating evidence of how well the body can be “trained” to respond to stresses over time. Although they don’t admit it, it also reveals that toxins actually weaken your immune system, not strengthen it.
Hour 2 on RSB ~
Although Splenda has been promoted as a healthier alternative to refined white sugar, a recent study conducted in Italy linked the artificial sweetener to higher risk for leukemia. Scientists found Splenda significantly increased the risk for leukemia, as well as other cancers, research that is in line with other studies in recent years.
Watch out – FDA says GMO mosquito likely ok to fight Zika in Florida. Hmmm, likely ok? What happens to the mosquito’s after they are “done with their job”? What about the birds who eat mosquitos? What are these mosquito’s armed with that makes them more dangerous?
Hi Robert! I have a quick question for you in regards to something you mentioned at your presentation at last year’s AutismOne (yes, I’m a little late – autism dominates my life so I’m just now getting around to this! lol) You were talking about homeopathy and had mentioned that you couldn’t anti-dote a remedy once given. I hear conflicting things about this (ie – coffee, peppermint etc.) so was just wondering if you could elaborate a bit further on what you meant. Thanks much and thank you for what you do. Hopefully I’ll see you in Chicago again this year. ~ Amy

In another brilliant study, our pals at healthfinder.gov report that patients do better and are more satisfied with their care if they believe their doctor is empathetic. Apparently, this is even more important than wait-time at the office appointment. Isn’t it amazing, compassion, feeling heard, cared about, makes us feel better? Someone should write a book on that or something!
