Food Allergies Stir a Mother to Action
January 29, 2008
Robyn O’Brien used to roll her eyes when a child with a peanut allergy showed up at a birthday party. Then, two years ago, she fed her youngest child scrambled eggs. Her baby’s face swelled into a grotesque mask.
This led her to an examination of the perplexing world of childhood food allergies, and she soon came to the conclusion that there is a conspiracy that threatens the health of America’s children. And she believes it is up to her and parents everywhere to stop it.
Her theory that the food supply is being manipulated with additives, genetic modification, hormones and herbicides, causing increases in allergies, autism and other disorders in children, has made her a populist hero among parents looking for answers regarding why their children have food allergies.
O’Brien recommends that people throw out their nonorganic, processed, genetically modified, artificially created, or hormone-laced food. Once she did it, her four children’s health problems cleared right up.
