GreenGourmetToGo Kicks-Off Healthy Eating Educational Series On October 21, 2010
Free event features local author Beth Lambert discussing the epidemic of chronic illness in America’s children
BRIDGEPORT, CONNECTICUT – (October 12, 2010) – GreenGourmetToGo, a unique organic vegetarian take-out restaurant that focuses on sustainable food sources and health-supportive cooking, announced today that it will be hosting a series of free educational discussions on healthy living at its newly expanded store front restaurant in the Black Rock section of Bridgeport, CT.
Local author Beth Lambert will kick-off GreenGourmetToGo’s educational initiative by discussing her book, “A Compromised Generation: The Epidemic of Chronic Illness in America’s Children.“ The free event is being held on October 21, 2010 at 7:00 pm at GreenGourmetToGo, which is located at 2984 Fairfield Avenue, Bridgeport, CT and will give parents and others touched by this epidemic, an opportunity to ask questions and learn more about the causes, recovery and prevention of these illnesses.
“Food is a medium to convey a message, and the message we want to communicate is that mindful eating – that is thinking carefully about where we get our food, what we eat and how it impacts us – is more important now than ever,” commented Linda Soper-Kolton, Chef and Owner of GreenGourmetToGo. It has always been part of our mission at GreenGourmetToGo to help people, not only by providing health-supportive food that is convenient, but to also help educate and inform.”
A Compromised Generation reveals how seemingly benign elements of American culture are making millions of children chronically ill, disabled, or dysfunctional. It is a “perfect storm” of environmental factors including decades of pharmaceutical over-usage, toxic or nutritionally anemic diets, excessive exposure to environmental toxins, specific American habits and lifestyles, and excessive or improperly administered vaccines. A Compromised Generation provides details on how this epidemic can be reversed and how to prevent more children from becoming ill, supplying evidence that children can recover from chronic illnesses, including autism, by altering their environmental influences and by stepping outside of the traditional western medical paradigm.

“Children today are being diagnosed with illnesses such as autism, asthma, allergies, and ADHD at a breathtaking rate,” commented author Beth Lambert. “Autism’s cause continues to confound mainstream medicine, yet parents, medical researchers, and healthcare practitioners dedicated to unraveling the mystery are beginning to put the pieces of the puzzle into place. They have found that environmental factors that cause autism are the same ones causing epidemics of ADHD, juvenile diabetes, asthma, gastrointestinal disorders, and many other chronic illnesses.”
Beth Lambert is a former healthcare consultant and teacher. She is the Executive Director of PEACE: Parents Ending America’s Childhood Epidemic, a 501c3 nonprofit organization that educates the public about the epidemic of chronic illness affecting our youth, and helps parents connect with other parents and appropriate health care providers (www.epidemicanswers.org).
