A Texas native raised on Twinkies and PoBoys, Robyn O'Brien has  leveraged her experience as a food industry analyst to uncovering how one of life's most basic activities - eating - has led to skyrocketing rates of cancer, autism, obesity and allergies.  In doing so, she not only encountered enormous obstacles but also found courage and her life’s work: restoring the integrity of the American food supply and the health of our country.

“In the absence of the truth, all of us stand hel pless to defend ourselves, our families and our health, which is the greatest gift we have.   Robyn O’Brien’s courageous pursuit of THE UNHEALTHY TRUTH is an example of how we can all do our parts to protect the health of our families." —Erin Brockovich

"Robyn O'Brien inspires us in THE UNHEALTHY TRUTH with the information that she has learned about our food supply and offers practical and affordable steps to take to protect the health of our families." -Dr. Oz       

"I admire your activism on behalf of children." -Ted Turner                           And more.....

As an accomplished author, a tenacious researcher, a compassionate, working mother of four and a gifted communicator, Robyn brings enthusiasm, insight, and passion to her work. In the years that she has been a speaker and a nationally recognized author and health advocate, she has delivered powerful messages to thousands of people around the country, from entrepreneurs to members of Congress to corporate professionals to mothers' groups, schools and universities. 

As highlighted in her first book, The Unhealthy Truth: How Our Food Is Making Us Sick and What We Can Do About It, and using the resources and skills that she  developed as an equity analyst, Robyn diagnoses the failing American food system and its financially-driven incentive structure that has allowed additives into the American food supply that have either been banned or labeled from foods in other developed countries, especially those served to children.
