The Unhealthy Truth

In a first-person story as shocking as it is inspirational,  The Unhealthy Truth reveals the alarming relationship between the manipulation of our food and the increase in dangerous allergies in our children—and off ers a road map to healthy living for every family.

“In the absence of the truth, all of us stand helpless to defend ourselves, our families and our health, which is the greatest gift we have.   You don’t have to be a doctor or a scientist to look into whether our food supply is safe and 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 is not the most likely candidate for an antiestablishment crusade. A Houston native from a conservative family, this MBA and married mother of four was not someone who gave much thought to corrupt government agencies and chemicals in our food. Until the day her youngest daughter had a violent allergic reaction to eggs, and everything changed. 

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. O’Brien turns to accredited research conducted in Europe that confi rms 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 among our children.

Featuring recipes and an action plan for weaning your family off dangerous chemicals one step at a time The Unhealthy Truth is a must-read for every parent—and for every concerned citizen—in America today.

Robyn O’Brien is the founder of AllergyKids. She has been featured in the New York Times and has appeared on CNN, Good Morning America, and the CBS Early Show and Evening News. She lives with her family in Boulder, Colorado.
