TED Talk: An 11-Year Old Kid Explains What's Wrong With Our Food System

TED (Technology, Entertainment, and Design) talks are hosted by a private, non-profit organization the Sapling Foundation. They host conferences around the world, giving 20 minutes to renowned and new speakers across disciplines about science and culture. Speakers such as Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, and Al Gore, but also farmers, scientists, and authors can use this medium to tell their stories. Since 2006 the TED Talks have been offered free online under the Creative Commons license, and many are available on Netflix Streaming. Their mission statement is: 

"We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and ultimately, the world. So we're building here a clearinghouse that offers free knowledge and inspiration from the world's most inspired thinkers, and also a community of curious souls to engage with ideas and each other."

In the spirit of sharing stories and storytellers to spread knowledge and change attitudes, here's great TED talk from 11-Year-Old Birke Baehr, where he lays out just what is wrong wish our food system!
