About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event.

  1. I’m super interested in plant-based diets and the benefits, but I felt this talk was really lacking in explanation. This man listed a lot of “bad” foods, but didn’t fully explain why most of the foods are actually bad. Yes, I know that he’s saying they increase risk of heart disease, but how? Simply saying that milk is “liquid meat” does not explain why milk is bad.

  2. This is the biggest bit of miss-information ive seen presented sice i watched USA News.

    He’s against fish.
    Imo i think a human that can not or will not source proteins from fish is a weak lifeform.

    Please try and propose the idea to an alaskan Inuit that Fish is inherently bad for them and they should be eating more plants.

    Do you know what grass is actually really good for? Cows.
    Imagine that.

  3. You are a plant base and you are giving your point from there. You are not neutral l eat an omelet every day for brake fast and my keto coffee l use almond milk for 3 years and l lost 30 pounds l gues every body fits in a different type of diet as longest we don’t consume carbs and sugars will be ok that’s the real poison

  4. Any diet that does away with processed food is going to improve health and the chronic western diseases. The fact that a vegan diet improves those conditions does not mean eating plant based is the best diet for humans. It only means that it’s better, at least in the short to medium term, than the SAD diet. Plants have defense chemicals that cause all kinds of issues in the body. They also lack a number of nutrients that are essential for optimum health.
