Real Food Evangelist Robyn O'Brien Talks about Food Additives

BY EARTHFIRST

Robyn O'Brien is an inspiring 'Real Food' evangelist who shares her expereince, knowledge and passion to help educate people to live healthier lives, by making them aware of the chemicals that we are eating in the foods that we eat.

What she calls 'foreign invaders' are enginered in our food supply, to maximise profitability for the food industry. Great for the food industry but a great detriment to our health; increasing diseases, rates of cancer and food allergies.

Some scary stats are revealed that really make you think twice about what you add to your shopping trolley.

  • 9 out of 10 breast cancers are environmentally triggered.
  • 1 in 13 children has life-threatening food allergies
  • The US has the highest rate of cancer of any country on the planet.
  • 1/3 American women are expected to get cancer in their lifetime.
  • 1 out of 2 American men are expected to get cancer in their lifetime.
  • A 2008 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study revealed that food allergies have increased by 18% from 1997 to 2007.

Eating an additive free diet can save your life. We need to limit the amount of processed foods in our diet and increase the amount of natural , organic and free range food we eat and fight agains Genetically modified foods (GMOs).

Since I created Chemeleon with my husband, I have radically reduced the amount of additives that we eat. I've swapped many products that we use to eat all the time for safer alternatives. I've also received some wonderful feedback from people who use the app regularly when they shop. 

Please share this knowledge with your friends and family and be wise about what you eat.  You can download a copy of Chemeleon the food additve guide from iTunes.
