Dr. Bob Sears
“Dr. Sears” is one of the most trusted names in pediatrics. Dr. Bob Sears, along with his remarkable family, co-authored “The Baby Book“, “The Pregnancy Book“, and “The Healthiest Kid in the Neighborhood“. His refreshingly candid advice on the dangers that chemical additives in children’s foods present to their health and well-being (as seen in our June 2007 Newsletter) is a gift for which we are extremely grateful.
Dr. Kenneth Bock
If you have ever been concerned about allergies, asthma, ADHD or autism, then you recognize the critical role that the research of Dr. Kenneth Bock plays in the life of our children. As a pediatric neurotoxicologist, his work on “the 4-A’s” highlights the important role that diet can play in tackling these autoimmune disorders, and the risks that recently introduced neurotoxins in foods may present to the health of our children as seen in our August 2007 Newsletter. His recent appearance on the CBS Early Show demonstrates his intelligence and compassion.

Dr. David Ludwig (Former Advisor)
The integrity of Dr. Ludwig’s research earned him a place of honor at the AllergyKids’ table (not to mention that he insists that no junk be served!). Though he no longer serves on the advisory team, we often cite the work of Dr. Ludwig as his research and that of his team at Harvard University highlights the influential role that that industry funding plays in skewing scientific results. Dr. Ludwig’s work focuses on the risks that junk food present to the health our children, as seen in the New York Times, NBC Nightly News, Time Magazine and Ending the Food Fight.
