I have often wondered why there is such a great rise in food allergies. I couldn't tell you one person in my circle of friends that had such an allergy when I was growing up. No one worried about serving peanuts on airplanes (but then again I remember people being able to smoke in the malls too!) and no one worried about anaphylaxis, especially in their children. What has happened? Have you ever known a young child to be plagued by childhood cancer? I unfortunately have and when my friend told me that her doctor told her it was a case of environmental leukemia, I just about lost it! This is why I don't allow parabens, phthalates and other known toxins into my home. I know too much. Like Robyn says "I can't unlearn it". I can't wait to get my hands on Robyn's book. In the meantime I urge you to watch this YouTube video (yes, I know it is 18 minutes long but it feels like 5 minutes). You will laugh, you will cry but I dare you not to be moved and perhaps a little angry!
I would love you to comment here and tell me how this video has affected you.
