43: Down Syndrome: Three Moms Making a Difference

October 19, 2017
00:0000:00

Down Syndrome: three moms (Michelle, Leslie, and Dori) talk with Meredith about their kiddos, families and "law syndrome." The biggest take away from this episode for me was the fact that Down Syndrome individuals are REALLY just like us... truly. Listen more to these women tell their stories---such a great episode. Approximately one in every 700 babies in the United States is born with Down syndrome, making Down syndrome the most common chromosomal condition. At NDSS you'll find an introduction to Down syndrome and an overview of related facts, myths and truths and our preferred language guide.

Law Syndrome:
Law Syndrome affects 100% of people with Down syndrome.  It’s a series of antiquated laws that impede the pursuit of a career or living independently without risking Medicaid benefits. Help us fix the law and end #LawSyndrome

41: Ally Faber: Treacher Collins Syndrome & Nolan

October 6, 2017
00:0000:00

Ally Faber is the mom to Nolan, who has a rare genetic syndrome known as Treacher Collins. This was an incredibly positive, uplifting and heart-warming episode.

Ally writes, "Nolan is the best thing to have ever happened to our family and he's transformed the way I view life. I'm a married, vegan Oregon momma of TWO boys who decided to embark on a minimalism journey this calendar year for financial freedom, a healthier emotional state and a less wasteful and more conscious life as a consumer. I long to own less so that we can do more as a family."

12: Audrey Sanchez: Balanced (Part II)

May 5, 2017
00:0000:00

Following the health primer with Dr. Michael Greger (Part I), I talk with Audrey Sanchez, the Executive Director of the new non-profit: BALANCED.

Balanced is a nonprofit aimed at making healthy food more accessible in workplaces, schools, hospitals, universities, and retail spaces across the country. Formed in collaboration with leading nutrition expert, Best-Selling author, and founder of NutritionFacts.org, Dr. Michael Greger, Balanced was created to help end the ongoing public health crisis that is associated with the overconsumption of unhealthy foods.

“As a mom, I know first-hand the challenges associated with finding healthy foods. The inspiration behind Balanced is simply the belief that it shouldn’t be as hard as it is to feed our families well,” Balanced Executive Director, Audrey Sanchez said. “Making healthier options more accessible in workplaces, schools, health care facilities, and universities is something I take very seriously. Given their scale, major food companies and institutions have the ability—and responsibility—to make simple but meaningful changes that will make it easier for our families to stay healthy. It’s time they stop serving foods that have such a negative impact on our health, and instead, serve more foods that reflect the best available nutrition evidence.”

Unique in its approach, Balanced's efforts focus on campaigning for alternatives to the unhealthy foods served by major food companies. Balanced’s goal of mobilizing consumers to demand these changes sets it apart. Balanced is calling on these food companies to reduce the amount of meat and foods high in cholesterol, saturated fats, and carcinogens they serve and increase health-promoting foods such as grains, beans, fruits, and vegetables.

Echoing Sanchez’s sentiments, Dr. Greger had this to say, “The science is clear. The research has shown, time and again, that diets high in meat are associated with increased risk of a variety of our leading killer diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, certain types of cancers, and premature death in general. One of the most significant ways a person can impact their overall health is to instead maximize their intake of whole healthy plant foods.”

Get Involved with BALANCED:

"Healthy food is a RIGHT, and we are going to FIGHT for it. For too long, too many major food corporations have prioritized their profits over our health. They’ve ignored federal dietary guidelines and the best nutrition evidence, and our families have paid the price—with diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and premature death.

"These companies have created a public health crisis and blamed it on us, just like big tobacco did two generations ago. Like big tobacco, they’ve called consumer health an individual choice—not a corporate responsibility. The truth is, we’ve been set up to fail. When cafeterias, restaurants, and grocery aisles are overstocked with disease-causing foods, when major food corporations are promoting these products at every turn and piling them high on our plates, how much choice do we really have?"

Enough is enough: "TOGETHER, WE WILL HOLD MAJOR FOOD CORPORATIONS ACCOUNTABLE FOR BRINGING BALANCE TO CAFETERIAS, MENUS AND STORE SHELVES."
