Robyn O’Brien: Following A Calling to Help Our Children

22 Jul 2010 by Lewis, View Comments

If I was to describe Robyn O’Brien in one word, it would be passionate. Passionate for her calling, her family and the health of our Nation’s children. I have known this woman for over twenty years as we were classmates and friends at Washington & Lee University. But is was two years ago when we reconnected over a common mission of sustainability. We were both speaking at a corporate engagement on the topic – my part was on “green” business and Robyn’s was on the health of our food. My eyes were opened on this subject I knew very little about – Toxic Chemicals in our food.

It was Robyn’s work that set me forth in my education on our food system in the United States and from here that I learned of the many chemicals in our foods which are banned in other parts of the world but common place in groceries stores here in the USA. And from Robyn I learned of the introduction of chemicals and synthetic toxins into our food supply twenty years ago. Since that time, there has been a dramatic increase in the rates of allergies, asthma, autism and ADHD. She has inspired me and hopefully millions of other Americans.

A year ago her book The Unhealthy Truth: How Our Food is Making Us Sick and What You Can Do About It hit the book stores and set Robyn forward on a national tour, engaging women across the country to change the way they shop and cook food and ultimately feed their children. This calling and passion came from one incident – a food allergy in her child. Since then she has realized that all of her children were effected by the toxins in our food. Her diligent research and teachings quickly began which lead to the creation of and her book.

Today Robyn has created the Allergykids Foundation which seeks “to inspire change in the health of children by protecting them from chemicals recently added to the US food supply – chemicals not found in children’s foods around the world.”

When I launched this site, it was women such a Robyn whom I had in mind. She has inspired me to hold tightly to my own truth. To never be afraid to step into a calling or purpose. And to remember to use grace, humor, love and joy in my work. I am honored to speak to Robyn for you and know that she is a Woman Saving The World.
