Generation Rx

A few weeks ago I had the honor of hearing Robyn O’Brien, author of the book The Unhealthy Truth, speak at a luncheon. What I learned was very upsetting. As a momma to be, I had to pass on this information.


OVERVIEW

The American children have earned the title “Generation Rx.”

With the increasing rates of allergies, ADHD, diabetes, cancer and obesity in children, the burdens of these diseases are weighing on families, corporations and our economy.  Parents and caregivers need tools that they can use to protect the health of children.

While additives like artificial growth hormones, insecticides and other genetically engineered proteins are not found in children’s foods in other countries (and not used by our corporations in products they sell overseas), they were introduced into the food supply in the United States beginning in 1994 without our informed consent.

Help us to protect American children with the labeling of these ingredients, so that Americans can make an informed choice when it comes to protecting the health of their loved ones.

  1. Thank you Mrs Milano for bringing this to the attention of the public. Since you will shortly going to be a parent soon, you cannot fathom yet the importance of this great cause. Isn’t it about time to think about the safety of our children, as well as ours? Canada supports you all the way and it’s about time we take our health far more seriously than other countries are doing already. Bravo Mrs MIlano, Bravo! Bravo! and again, Bravo!

  2. Hello Alyssa,

    My name is Coco and I attended a lunch with Robyn last week in San Francisco. She certainly is a force of nature, isn’t she? Such an important subject to get the word out on — glad you’re posting this!

  3. Thanks for sharing this post with your readers. I have heard Robyn speak a little while back and was truly appalled and disgusted. I try to protect my daughter every way that I can; carseat, discipline, helmet, etc but having to protect her from what is on the grocery store shelves is upsetting, to say the least.

    Thank you for helping spread the word, and hopefully it will invoke change to the way the United States truly cares about the citizens health by getting to the root of our problem and not just band-aid it with healthcare. Most of our health issues stem from a poor diet, no only what is IN food but what it is packaged in too!

    I signed the petition and shared it to all my friends via Facebook!

  4. Many researchers and others have worked for a long time trying to shed light on food allergies. We have a right to know that our food is safe for our children and the rest of us. Our government failed us in this and more. What can be done SOON to assure healthy food in order to help us protect this and future generations ?? The help of more caring trustworthy leaders are needed. How sad for so many ….
    values, virtue and vigilence are needed to assure a better future.

  5. your an amazing person who is about to be a mother and yo greatly deserve it. you have done so much for the world and our country as well as the kids you deserve one of your own. im glad your going to live a happy life and the world just wouldn’t be the same without a milano/bugliari. congrats and u deserve to live a happy and well fulfilled rest of your life with your husband and child :)

  6. Now it’s all about making the food “pretty”, not edible or heaven forbid healthy. They pump so many hormones and steroids into animals like chickens that their legs can’t hold them up. It’s gross and sickening. If we all cry out loud enough in one voice, chang CAN happen. I’ve seen it in my lifetime. My folks took me on marches when I was a tot in 1965, 1968,1971. Was a great way to grow up!

  7. If there is one thing I don’t mind doing without it’s sickness.

  8. Great article, thanks for posting. Highly agree.

  9. Hello Alyssa,

    Thank you so much for bringing attention to this topic. I have been working on spreading the word about the dangers in our food supply since 1994, actually. Here is the latest threat:

    If you want to know more about round-up ready crops and how they have been tested in India with disastrous results check out Jordan Rubin he had an interesting (and enraging) article in one of my health food magazines http://www.jordanrubin.com/ about these deadly crops.

    You look beautiful in the premiere pictures, BTW.

    Cheers! :)

    • On Jordan website you can peruse the magazine I was referring to–Extraordinary Health. It is the first one shown, with the raw truth book on the cover, that has the information.

      Another good source for being healthy is Bulk Herb Store. Shoshanna is the curator of sorts and their herbs are fantastic she has lots of tips on healthy eating, detoxing, and more: http://www.bulkherbstore.com/

      Be well! :)

  10. This is fairly broad so ,,,,
    there was a study done in Scandinavia ? that showed the grade parents /great grandparents , biology was transmitted down the line , in a attempt? by the body jean sequencing to help the offspring to cope
    with foods variant, lack of or an abundance of, has a direct effect on the great grand children according to a studied ,
    its seems that elitism gone mad where money is the desired object, driven a desperate mind sets ,an a perverted biblical ideology call “zoinisem” works by dehumanizing peoples to allow the
    the desired object to be obtained (what ever that is) works hand in hand creating one law for them and one for us ?

    like DDT the pollens of modified crops have been air born for a number of years ,
    the company claims ownership of the pollen as I think they do for modified protein/s in an attempt
    to protect copyright that means they could be?
    sued to stop it ,if a link could be established , I believe the courts of the USA are bias in favoring companies

  11. no am Spartacus :)

  12. I think kids these days are more healthier or nutrious than most of humans past.
