Jamie Oliver’s Ted Talk Review

Even though most videos based around food and what goes into it are created for an American audience, it does affect the rest of the world greatly. The U.S. is the most powerful country in the world, many developing countries will follow it’s footsteps because they think it will bring their country into fruition. This is not the case. And because of this undeniable fact, we have to watch our diet all around the world. But that is not the point of Jamie Oliver’s Ted Talk. He is an activist, and his main point is to bring food education into schools. To teach children about food. In the documentary Fed Up, we see how corporations “brainwash” children into buying and craving their products from a very young age. Another point was obesity and how 1/3! Yeah you heard me, 1/3 of the U.S. population is obese. He focused on how death in Americans was mainly due to diet related causes. He is using the facts to make his point, and is succeeding in doing so, we need to teach children about food, hence why I am writing this to further advocate his point.
