Jamie Oliver on TED

Have you seen Jamie Oliver's TED Talk (from 2010)?  (I seem to be watching quite a few of these recently.) 

He talks about how America is one of the most unhealthy countries in the world.  Children today have a shorter lifespan than their parents.  We are paranoid about so many things, but the thing that is killing us is the way we eat. 

Since I got pregnant, I have gradually been learning to eat better.   I have been surprised to learn that does not mean eating low fat, but it means eating more traditional foods.  (Jamie doesn't necessarily touch on the traditional food aspect, but he does talk a lot about sugar and moving to fresh and local foods which is another part of our journey.)
