Fighting obesity in our countryPosted: April 11, 2010 Filed under: 3. Food Security | Tags: Jamie Oliver Comments Off on Fighting obesity in our country
Another TED speaker who really nailed his topic is an English bloke named Jamie Oliver. He’s a chef and an evangelist on a crusade to un-fatten America.
Why us? Because he (correctly) recognizes that if we change our lousy eating habits and toxic food, the rest of the world will follow. Well, that and research clearly shows that we are the fattest, laziest country in the world. Geesh.
How the hell did we go – in such a short amount of time – from having the top minds, top bodies, and top results in the world to a scenario where US children can’t recognize a tomato? If you are like me, when you watch this video you’ll say WTF? at least half a dozen times when looking at the data and case studies Oliver has gathered on our country.
