The Unhealthy Truth: How Our Food Is Making Us Sick and What We Can Do About It

Today, the American population suffers from a list of chronic health conditions, from asthma to cancer to diabetes. Every family has been impacted on every rung of our socio-economic ladder, creating a tremendous burden on our healthcare system, while countries around the world barely seem to sniffle. Have you ever wondered why?

As highlighted in The Unhealthy Truth: How Our Food Is Making Us Sick and What We Can Do About It, using resources and skills that she developed as an equity analyst on billions in assets, Robyn diagnoses the recent deregulation of the American food system that allowed chemicals and additives into the American food supply in order to enhance profitability for the food industry – chemicals that have either been banned or labeled from foods around the world.

The Unhealthy Truth: How Our Food Is Making Us Sick and What We Can Do About It is an inspiring story of honesty, diligence, and tenacity in the face of humbling odds. Robyn’s gift for communication have made her a sought-after motivational speaker, as she educates and inspires hope, shedding light on how, together, we can affect remarkable change.
