Ed and Deb Shapiro welcome Robyn O’Brien Author of The UnHealthy Truth to discuss her research into the impact that the global food system is having on our health.
Robyn’s writing has appeared in the press and on countless websites including leading pediatric websites like WebMD, on Martha Stewart’s Whole Living, and in the Washington Post. She is a sought-after expert on children’s health policy by organizations around the globe.
Her first book, The Unhealthy Truth, is a first-person story that is as shocking as it is inspirational. The Unhealthy Truth reveals the alarming decision-making process that enables additives that are either banned or ingredients from foods in other countries to be included in the United States food supply, the personal attacks Robyn experienced as she unearthed this research, and it documents the relationship between the manipulation of our food and the increase in diseases in our children, offering a road map to healthy living for every family.
You take a strong mother angle in The Unhealthy Truth -- but aren't GMOs something that everyone should be concerned about?
