Kelly Ryerson, MBA, IHC
In coping with and curing my own chronic illness through diet change and vitamin replenishment, I spent years studying intestinal permeability, the microbiome and toxins. The mechanisms by which so many family and friends have fallen ill can often be traced to a similar cause. With the recent advancement in science, we can better understand how chemical agriculture is causing an explosion of chronic disease.
Six in ten adults in the US have a chronic disease and four in ten adults have two or more. Over half of US children are chronically ill. There is one common thread: what we eat. There has never been a more critical time to urgently change our food system to support clean, nutritious food that is not poisoned with chemical toxins.
I work at the intersection of agriculture and health, regularly collaborating with farmers, scientists, policymakers and media to address agrochemical damage to our soil and bodies. In addition to founding Glyphosate Facts, I have contributed to several documentaries, podcasts, and publications, and host a show on food systems and farming on CHDtv each month. I am an ambassador for the Rodale Institute.
I have a BA in Economics from Dartmouth College, an MBA from the Stanford Graduate School of Business with a focus in Healthcare Public Management, and completed training in Integrative Health Coaching at Duke Integrative Medicine.
