People wonder why V Star care so much about organic plant based food. This story simply brings it together from an average mothers perspective.
With the US having the highest rates of cancers and a rising tide of food allergies, one mother started to investigate more.
When a US mother found her child suffering from a food allergy, she decided to do some research.
She started looking at the milk industry, and the various other industries like corn, peanuts, and soy as well.
Her findings are quite remarkable.
In this talk Robyn O’Brien talks about what she found out the food system in the US when she started doing research
Robyn is an Analyst who decided to search
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.
