Teach every child about food | Jamie Oliver
http://www.ted.com Sharing powerful stories from his anti-obesity project in Huntington, W. Va., TED Prize winner Jamie Oliver makes the case for an all-out assault on our ignorance of food. Jamie Oliver is transforming the way we feed ourselves, and our children. Jamie Oliver has been drawn to the kitchen since he was a child working in his father's pub-restaurant. He showed not only a precocious culinary talent but also a passion for creating (and talking about) fresh, honest, delicious food. In the past decade, the shaggy-haired "Naked Chef" of late-'90s BBC2 has built a worldwide media conglomerate of TV shows, books, cookware and magazines, all based on a formula of simple, unpretentious food that invites everyone to get busy in the kitchen. And as much as his cooking is generous, so is his business model -- his Fifteen Foundation, for instance, trains young chefs from challenged backgrounds to run four of his restaurants. Now, Oliver is using his fame and charm to bring attention to the changes that Brits and Americans need to make in their lifestyles and diet. Campaigns such as Jamie's School Dinner, Ministry of Food and Food Revolution USA combine Olivers culinary tools, cookbooks and television, with serious activism and community organizing -- to create change on both the individual and governmental level.

Food for Life: 5 foods you should never eat
CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta reveals the 5 foods that Men's Health contributing editor David Jack says you should never eat. More from CNN at http://www.cnn.com/
If You Were Eating Food that Could Kill You - Want to Know?
If you were eating something completely unnatural - something that could make you sick - give you cancer - make your testicles shrink - heck, even kill you - wouldn't you want to know? If you answered yes - then you're on the same side as over 90% of your fellow Americans. Poll after poll over the last few years - has shown that more than 90% of Americans support specific labeling of genetically modified foods that they buy in grocery stores. And European and other developed countries require labeling of GMOs -- genetically modified foods. But even though for years Americans have been demanding the right to know what's in their food - and whether or not it's franken-food - not a single piece of state or federal legislation has ever been passed to make it happen. Which brings us to California. Efforts to force the state legisature to pass laws to require labeling of genetically modified foods have failed - so now citizens of the state have taken matters into their own hands. After collecting more than a million signatures - the citizens of California put proposition 37 on the ballot for November - which will force all genetically modified foods to have special labels. Good news, right? Well...now the fight is just starting. That's because the biggest purveyors of genetically modified foods - giant corporations like Monsanto, DuPont, Coca-Cola, Pepsi, Nestle - all of them are spending enormous amounts of money to defeat Prop 37. They don't want you to know what's in your food. Monsanto alone has spent more than 4 million bucks - so too has Dupont - and in total the GMO industry has raised $25 million to kill prop 37 - and to kill your right to know what's in the food you eat. On the other hand - the supporters of Prop 37 - have only raised $2 million. This is going to be an uphill battle.
