Transforming Sickness and Struggle into Triumph, Empowerment, and a Celebration of Community
When her 5-year-old son nearly died from an allergic reaction to pecans at her family’s Thanksgiving dinner, Zen’s world was turned upside down. In an instant, items on grocery store shelves and in the pantries of friends and family became a deadly, life-threatening poison to her precious baby.
It wasn’t long before she discovered that she and her son were not alone. With food allergy rates at an all-time high, Zen couldn’t help but wonder... Was it her son’s immune system that was broken? Or is our nation’s food system what is truly in crisis?
Living a life of fear and constant vigilance for her son’s life was simply not good enough. In this empowering must-read book, author Zen Honeycutt takes you on her personal journey of deep research, groundbreaking discovery, and the path toward healing. She then shows you step-by-step how to change things for yourself, your family, and the world.
If you or a loved one have experienced food allergies, autoimmune disorders, behavioral issues, or chronic illness, know that there is hope, that you are not alone, and there are steps you can take to create the health and freedom you desire. UNSTOPPABLE: Transforming Sickness and Struggle into Triumph, Empowerment and a Celebration of Community is for you.
The foreword for UNSTOPPABLE was written by Jill C. Carnahan, MD, ABFM, ABHM, a functional medicine expert, conventional farmer's daughter and breast cancer and Crohn’s disease survivor.
“As a functional medicine doctor, I’ve seen firsthand the increase in chronic conditions in this country. Allergies, autism, autoimmune disease, cancer, obesity and diabetes are undeniably on the rise. So much of what’s causing this phenomenon is the sheer number of chemicals we are exposed to on a daily basis. In fact, I see environmental toxicity as the elephant in the room – the number one burden contributing to chronic disease. Only through leveraging the accessibility of information can we fight against the onslaught of chemicals that are making us sick – and this is exactly what Zen Honeycutt’s book, UNSTOPPABLE, does." Dr. Jill Carnahan
The author shares why she wrote UNSTOPPABLE:
What people are saying about UNSTOPPABLE
“UNSTOPPABLE is arguably the best book available today on the topic of toxic foods and their effects on human health. Zen Honeycutt was ‘just’ a young mother trying to bring up her three sons as best she could, in the context of an onslaught of toxic chemicals in their environment causing a long list of health issues for her kids - food allergies, eczema, emergency visits to the hospital, EpiPen’s, an autism diagnosis, etc., led her down a path with a quest for understanding why it was so much more difficult for her to raise her kids than it had been in her mother's generation. Once she began to find answers, she knew that she needed to do everything she could to help get the message out to other parents who were struggling in similar ways. She zeroed in on genetically modified foods, and, more specifically, glyphosate, the active ingredient in the pervasive herbicide Roundup, as key factors in her children's health crisis. Switching the family to an organic diet made many of the problems, including the autism diagnosis, magically disappear.
What is truly noble about Zen is her realization that she needed to do much more than just keep her own family healthy. She needed to become an advocate for healthy food and try every way possible to get the message out to a larger audience. She did everything she could to encourage others to get involved and help in disseminating the information about the toxicity of the food to a wider and wider audience. She founded the organization ‘Moms Across America’ to help with advocacy and messaging. She directly confronted the US government and Monsanto corporation, she participated in the Monsanto tribunal in Belgium, and she initiated studies to test for glyphosate contamination in human breast milk, vaccines, and California wines, finding it everywhere she looked.
The book is written in highly accessible prose, and it unfolds with a storyline of Zen's own journey of personal awakening. It is very entertaining and absorbing, and even gripping at times, the kind of book that you can't put down. Despite the ominous message she delivers, she maintains a sense of optimism throughout and a belief that the American citizenry can solve the problem through grassroots bottom-up strategies in local communities across the country. Zen is fond of quoting Lily Tomlin who said, ‘Somebody ought to do something about that. Wait a minute, I am somebody!’ Zen is truly an embodiment of that message. We are all ‘somebody,’ and Zen's book will inspire anybody who reads it to find a way that their special talents can contribute to helping to solve this enormous crisis that our country currently faces. If we don't all pitch in and do our part, the future of this country is in jeopardy.
What Dads Are Saying...
“If you’re a dad like me, maybe you don’t see why eating clean is such a big deal. I was too busy with my career and didn't like people telling me what to eat. Also, it seemed impossible to join social gatherings around food such as the holidays or the kid's sporting and scouting events. I didn't want to rock the boat and liked playing it safe.
But after having to stick an EpiPen needle into my then six-year-old son's leg and later having to bring him to an allergist and watch the doctors poke multiple pins in his arm, I was willing to look at the alternatives. To help manage costs, I got involved in shopping for organic food. It was a lot of work but it was also satisfying to provide clean food for my family and stay within budget.
Also, it took a lot of patience to ensure that my kids could continue to enjoy the holidays and outings while still eating clean food. One of the great benefits of this journey is meeting other families who are doing the same thing we are and helping each other learn more.
Over time, we started seeing the benefits of eating organic. Several years later, my son's allergies are nearly gone. I am now a big supporter of the mom’s movement against toxins of all kinds. It's a settled fact that my wife can see things I can’t. She helps me see that we are watching out not only our kids but for their future spouses, our grandkids, and the world they will inherit. In fact, she wrote a book about all of this and more called UNSTOPPABLE. You should check it out.” -- Todd Honeycutt, Dad Supporter
"Please, buy this book, read it, and pass it on to your friends and family!” -- Stephanie Seneff, Senior Research Scientist, MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory
Future historians may well look back upon our time and write, not about how many pounds of pesticide we did or did not apply, but about how willing we are to sacrifice our children and jeopardize future generations with this massive experiment we call genetic engineering that is based on flawed science and failed promises just to benefit the bottom line of a commercial enterprise. In her book ‘UNSTOPPABLE,’ Zen Honeycutt has masterfully parlayed the tragedy experienced from our diverted production of healthy food through the corruption of our agricultural system with genetic engineering to show how to rise above its damaging effects. She connects the dots between the modern changes in what we eat, the ubiquitous chemical contamination of our environment, and our well-being. She has initiated an UNSTOPPABLE movement that supports this essential process of restoring health and provides the encouragement and support for each individual to become a vital part of this correction. Her personal reflections and tidbits of encouragement throughout the book show how it can be done at all levels of society from the individual, family, community, nation and world. As a reader you will want to join in to promote health and well-being at all levels.” – Don M. Huber, Professor Emeritus, Purdue University; COL (Retired) AUS-Medical Intelligence
"Inspiring, poignant, educational, courageous...Unstoppable is a must-read for anyone who is invested in the sustainability of the global food supply, as well as the health of future generations. Zen Honeycutt takes us on a journey of struggle and sickness to health and community empowerment. UNSTOPPABLE captures the undaunted reality that small ripples of change can truly change the tide of the health landscape." -- Tami Canal, founder of March Against Monsanto
"UNSTOPPABLE is a great read with the perfect balance of personal story, science, activism and ‘how to’ change our lives and the lives of those we love. Zen's honesty and transparency can inspire all of us to make a choice for our family's health and well- being while being compassionate with ourselves along the way. This book reminded me that committed, passionate caring moves mountains and how each of can empower ourselves to be the change we want to see in our personal lives and the world. It's a great read that most anyone would enjoy. And I highly recommend it for parents, activists and Moms who, in the insane world we live in these days, may have forgotten how powerful they are.” -- Pamm Larry, Initial Instigator and Chief Rabble Rouser the Good Food Brigade
“As a parent, it’s easy to feel threatened by the toxins that have infiltrated our food and environment. Seemingly inexplicable illnesses are running rampant and hit close to home for all of us. In UNSTOPPABLE, Zen empowers you with knowledge to bravely embrace these challenges and move your loved ones towards greater health.” -- Vani Hari, New York Times Bestselling Author of The Food Babe Way
"UNSTOPPABLE is a labor and intelligence of love for Zen’s children and for the rest of us. She came across a world of disease and strange chemicals, even genetically engineered food. She educated herself by asking questions, talking to experts, challenging the government. Her book sheds light on our toxic environment, revealing the corruption behind the use of pesticides, GMOs and so many other technologies and realities that threaten our lives. Zen offers answers, in-tact, her book is a guide on how you can fight the toxic establishment. UNSTOPPABLE is timely and important. Read it." -- Evaggelos Vallianatos, Ph.D., former EPA analyst and author of Poison Spring
"UNSTOPPABLE offers well-documented information about GMOs and glyphosate that is critical for your family's health and the health of the planet. Bravo to Zen Honeycutt for her commitment, passion and love for her family which led her to take the lead in becoming an unstoppable mom and major healthy food activist.” -- Carol Grieve, Certified Holistic Nutritionist and Founder of Food Integrity Now
“As owner and chef of an organic restaurant, I meet people every day who are struggling with the consequences of eating genetically modified foods. Their stories parallel Zen's journey as they desperately seek answers. Where Zen's story differs is that after this mom discovered the ugly truth behind her family's suffering, she decided to do something about it, not only for her own family but all across America. Unstoppable is Zen's immensely informative manifesto, movingly sharing her passage from desperate mother to determined activist, boldly calling out some of the worst culprits behind America's growing health crisis, and passionately making a timely and encouraging call to action. For anyone concerned about the health of our families and future generations, it's our manifesto, too.” -- Saifon Plewtong, “The Healing Chef,” owner of True Seasons Organic Kitchen, founder of JesusHarvest.Life, co-founder of The Free Pantry

"I love reading books, talking about books, and working with people who write books – writers. I love looking at their ideas and sharing with them what I see. I love to support them in putting their best selves, their best understandings, on the page. One of the writers I had the privilege of working with was Ray Bradbury. Ray was fond of saying, “if you don’t love something, then don’t do it.” Well, I love editing books, in fact, I love the entire process of bringing a book to the public.
During my career, I’ve had the pleasure of working with authors during both the writing and promoting process. I’ve seen books from idea to publication and been part of the process of would-be authors turning into well-received authors, speakers and experts in their field who ultimately impact more people than they could have imagined. I love my work." -- Debbie Luican
