FOOD ALLERGIES Turn an Unlikely Wall Street Mom into a Food evangelist TED VIDEO 2011

Robyn shares her personal story and how it inspired her current path as a "Real Food" evangelist.

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 Robyn O'Brien @unhealthytruth
