A “food” lecture from an 11-year old

January 3, 2011

I was scanning through the TED Talks website while multi-tasking last night and something caught my eye.  The topic for one of the talks was “What’s wrong with our food system”.   I stopped everything I was doing at that point and turned my full attention to Birke Baehr.  

This extremely passionate 11-year old boy talks about the dark side of the industrialized food business and nails it in 5 minutes.  By the time the 5th minute wrapped up I was out of breath from watching this kid go.  Impressive.   Maybe I’m just biased because I’m equally obsessed about the food we eat and where it comes from.

Ok, enough of me rambling.  You’re next 5 minutes is better spent watching and learning from this 11-year old.  You won’t be the first though.  His talk has already been viewed on Youtube 300,000 times.  Go Birke go!
