TEDxTalks Features 11-year-old Birke Baehr “What’s Wrong With Our Food”, Contributed by Raw Food Chef, Nandi Moore
He’s only been on the planet 11 years, and this child knows our food system is broken. He demonstrates that our children will not be fooled. This is a brilliant expose through a child’s eyes, so much so, I think many adults will open their eyes and “see reality” through Birke’s thought-provoking research and presentation.
Growing bigger, faster, and with a longer shelf life, has become what our food industry coins “successful and profitable”. Our degraded food and broken food system, is the elephant in the room that we all need to start talking about, moreover, do something about!
Please SHARE the information, and SHOP, PREPARE, AND EAT with food integrity in mind.
You’ll need to ignore the audience laugh track, it sometimes occurs at inappropriate moments, however, does not in the least, dilute the impact of this message. Maraline
Processed foods, Excitotoxins, GMO, Chemicals, Pesticides, inhumane treatment, inferior food, antibiotics, hormones, grow bigger and faster mentality of livestock, poultry, and fish, and overall negligence about human health in general, is FLAT OUT WRONG!
The impact of this message should be clear to us, there is so much wrong with our food system and it happened silently, decision making obviously slanted in the best financial interest of business, negligent of human health, negligent of being good stewards of our animals, land, and water. Mostly, we didn’t know it was happening and we cannot ignore the ramifications any longer, because to do so, effectively destroys any chance of good health for our children.
Let’s not start impact by bringing back “organic”, that which was commonplace before WWII. We owe it to ourselves, our children, our parents, and the animals, to hold these companies accountable.
Reality check: 20 years ago how many children did you know who suffered from allergies, asthma, sleep issues, weight issues, diabetes, and worse? Today, the healthy, slim, and vibrant person is the exception instead of the rule.
Please, let’s “listen” to the children. It begins with facing some raw truths, education, and looking beyond the pretty packaging.
