Robyn O’Brien knows exactly how it feels when your child has an allergic reaction. Out of the blue one day her youngest daughter had a severe reaction to scrambled eggs. Frightened about the possibility of more reactions and desperately wanting to find answers to her questions, O’Brien set out to learn as much as possible about food allergies. What she found shocked her:
“As I learned more about food allergies, I came to see our allergic kids as “canaries in the coal mine,” warning us of problems that could affect the health of us all, whether we suffer from a specific allergy or not.” – The Unhealthy Truth by Robyn O’Brien
The Unhealthy Truth: How Our Food Is Making Us Sick – And What We Can Do About It by Robyn O’Brien and Rachel Kranz. Broadway Books (May 2009); 288 pages; ISBN 9780767930710
