Having lately been utterly hooked to the series of speeches on TED.com, I bumped into this speech titled “What’s wrong with what we eat”.
It depicts the history of food consumption in the United States, which in fact is exactly the same as in most “developed”. In this field the US indeed played a precursor role in developping the food industry.
Anyone who’s done the minimum 4-hour reading on nutrition and dietetics knows like the speaker how much our world conditions us to for junk foods. In his speech, he suggests alternative practices that not only would make people a lot healthier, but also significantly reduce greenhouse gas emmission by producing less of the unecessary meat.
In contrast with this speech, this documentary will show you, not how iver consumption of natural foods can be unhealty, but how chemicals involved in the whole food process create cancers and diseases.
