What better topic for Valentine's Day, right?
I came across this book for the first time last week, and I'm intrigued to read it. It's called Brighton Baby: The Complete Guide to Preconception & Conception.
It "celebrates the power of love as the intangible 'blueprint of life.'"
No, this does not mean that we are planning for Number Three. Life is perfectly full (and hard) with just two of them! I'm continuing to host my e-course about preparing your mind, body, and life for pregnancy, so I like to stay current on what's happening with the research.
The book looks dense (a little too dense), but here's what I find intriguing about it:
Throughout the book, Dr. Dittmann turns the spotlight on the hidden dangers of: heavy metals and other toxins, genetically modified foods, pesticides, artificial sweeteners, rancid oils, antibiotics, processed foods, contaminated drinking water, electrosmog, and the pluses & minuses of vaccines - merging science and common sense to compel couples to take action today to prevent birth defects in their future child. Brighton Baby is a call to action for couples to commit now to consciously preparing for your future child together."
I worry a lot about the increasing toxicity of our world and the increase in disorders affecting children (from the perspective of an educator). I look forward to checking out [the less expensive, Kindle version of] this book!
