What’s REALLY Scary about Halloween?
Dr. Dennis Godby, ND, who practices at the Diabetes Naturopath Center in Sacramento, Calif. Said he finds Halloween to be a scary prospect nowadays.
“I thank God my kids are not children anymore … for me Halloween is a disaster,” Dr. Godby said. “Decades ago when we went trick or treating, there weren’t GMOs.”
Dr. Godby said he sees problems in his patients later in life that stem from the unhealthy ingredients they are eating. He worries about the children, especially.
“There are so many problems with sugar, we take in 15 times as much sugar as we should, and that doesn’t take into account the dyes and GMO and oils that have changed so many things to something not natural,” he said, adding that instead of giving out candy this year and being part of the problem, perhaps being part of the solution would be a good idea. “Why not buy alternative things to give out, or once you get your gathering of candy pick out the best, or make Halloween the only day you allow candy to minimize the damage.”
