That’s why Robyn started to pay more attention to ingredient lists, and why she’s one of many sharing their story in this new video. (see below)
Yet the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) won’t let you, or Robyn, or millions of people just like her, make informed consumer choices at the grocery store because current policy doesn’t require that genetically engineered foods be labeled. And while the verdict is still out on the impact of these ingredients, we should be able to decide for ourselves.
Click here to watch a video featuring the stories of Robyn, Heather and Jason Donatini, and Louann Clark. Then contact the FDA to ask them to support the mandatory labeling of genetically engineered foods.
What many people do not know is that over 80% of crops like corn and soy are genetically engineered. We eat these common foods day in and day out without realizing what we’re putting into our bodies.
Recruited by institutions like Enron and following her career as an analyst, Robyn had four children and founded the visionary organization, www.allergykidsfoundation.org, which is focused on restoring the health of American families by addressing the needs of the 1 in 3 American children that now has allergies, autism, ADHD and asthma.
On Mother’s Day 2009, Random House published her acclaimed book, "The Unhealthy Truth: How Our Food Is Making Us Sick and What We Can Do About It" and today, Robyn is regarded as a health expert and sought after speaker who lectures extensively, appearing on national broadcasts that include CNN, ABC's Good Morning America and NBC's The Today Show.
Robyn earned an MBA on a full scholarship, graduating as the top woman in her class. And today, her work is recognized and supported by renowned individuals such as Dr. Oz, Robert Kennedy Jr., Ted Turner, Bonnie Raitt and Prince Charles.
And she firmly believe that while we can't change the beginning of our stories, we can change the end. And hope is the knowledge that change is possible, even when it seems hard to imagine.
