One of the most important videos I've ever watched

I highly recommend that everyone watch this frank video of Robyn O'Brien giving a talk at TEDxAustin 2011 about the ramifications of the little known but staggering changes made to the U.S.'s food supply in the mid-1990's that are having a direct effect on all our health and wellness.

The video is only 18 minutes long, but it could be the most important 18 minutes you spend on yourself.

It was for me. Also, thanks to this video, I now know the real reason why we have epidemic numbers of Type 2 diabetes, obesity, food allergies and gluten intolerance in the U.S. and it isn't fast food or sugary drinks.

Thank you for this, Cindy.

We rarely eat corn and we're off wheat and milk. I'm kicking my soda habit and yet I know there's bad chemicals in everything I eat.

We missed the growing season here this year but next year we'll a veggie garden.

Now I'm checking labels not just for additives but for which country the food is from. It's exhausting and yet that's what has to happen.
