“Moving to the U.S. will increase your cancer risk by 400%. She links the increase risk to the fact we’re the only nation that allows engineered corn, milk, and soy onto its shelves. Wow.

Robyn shares her personal story and how it inspired her current path as a “Real Food” evangelist. Grounded in a successful Wall Street career that was more interested in food as good business than good-for-you, this mother of four was shaken awake by the dangerous allergic reaction of one of her children to a “typical” breakfast. Her mission to unearth the cause revealed more about the food industry than she could stomach, and impelled her to share her findings with others. Informative and inspiring.

from food forced into altered states.
