Transcription: 
My name is Robyn O'Brien, and I am the author of "The Unhealthy Truth; How Our Food Is Making Us Sick and What We Can Do About It". I'm also the founder of the Allergy Kids Foundation and a mother of four. But prior to all of that, I was a financial analyst that covered the food industry, and in the last several years, I've learned all of these ingredients that have recently been introduced into the US food supply, that either are banned or labeled in countries around the world. So, I invite you to join us in this movement, to not only restore the integrity of our food supply, but also to restore the health of our children, as we witness this escalating rates of diseases like autism, and allergies, and even pediatric cancer. This work is so enormously important. So, in my free time with my family, we love to hike in Colorado, and music is a huge part of our lives, both at home and with the bands that we are so lucky to see when we are downtown in Boulder on Pearl Street.
