Robyn O¹Brien has been called the Erin Brockovich of the food industry.  Some of this information is not new, but Robyn has brought it together in a credible (she¹s has an MBA), comprehensive (she¹s a gifted researcher), compelling way that includes her own personal story.

She has also started Allergy Kids Foundation, whose mission/goal is to create universal food allergy awareness and to inspire parents to learn to identify the existence of and protect the health of their children with food allergies.

As the first independently funded food allergy organization, AllergyKids highlights previously undisclosed research addressing the recent introduction and engineering of allergens, proteins, food additives and dyes into our food supply and the impact that these novel proteins, chemicals and allergens have on the health and well being of women and their children.

In the last twenty years, the new childhood epidemics of allergies, asthma, autism and ADHD (also obesity and cancer) have increased dramatically:

+  400% increase in allergies,
+  300% increase in asthma,
+  400% increase in ADHD
+   and an increase of between 1,500 and 6,000% in the number of children with autism-spectrum disorders.
