Once upon a time, Robyn O’Brien, a married mother of four, was not someone who gave much thought to chemicals in our food. Her brood of four kids, complete with Kraft Mac ‘n Cheese, blue yogurt, dinosaur shaped chicken nuggets, and colorful goldfish crackers, were happily content with the Standard American Diet (SAD). And then, when the youngest child, Tory, was nine months old things changed in an instant.
Tory ate some eggs and her face puffed up and turned red. A few doctors’ appointments later, she was diagnosed with an allergy to eggs. Life in the O’Brien house changed. Robyn started researching the changes in our food supply over the last few decades and started documenting increasing trends in diseases. This 15-minute video is as shocking as it is inspirational. O’Brien turns to accredited research conducted in Europe that confirms the toxicity of America’s food supply, and traces the relationship between Big Food and Big Money that has ensured that the United States is one of the only developed countries in the world to allow hidden toxins in our food – toxins that can be blamed for the alarming recent increases in allergies, A.D.H.D., cancer, and asthma.
I encourage you to take 15-minutes to watch this video. The Unhealthy Truth is both the story of how one brave woman chose to take on the system and a call to action that shows how each of us can do our part and keep our own families safe. Anyone who is trying to get, or stay healthy, or raise healthy children or grandchildren will be impacted by this video. Even if we only change the way our own family eats, we can have a HUGE impact on changing a horrible situation. The vast amount of money spent on keeping us unhealthy will have little effect if each of us changes something in our daily life, and passes it on to others in our personal sphere of influence. Please take 15 minutes to watch this video, and share what you’ve learned with someone you care about.
