Check out this stunning TED talk on food safety in the U.S. The speaker, Robyn O’Brien, told the story of how one of her children developed a food allergy, and that experience started her on a path of researching the human food chain and its many links to illness. It’s dated (2011) but nothing has improved; in fact, it’s gotten far worse over time. For example, nearly all corn and soy in the U.S. are now genetically engineered (GMO). The video is about 18 minutes but it’s definitely worth the small investment of your time.
