11 Year Old Birke Baehr On What's Wrong With Our Food and What We Can Do About It - TEDx Next Generation

He talks about things that are wrong with our food that most folks much older than he is, are not even aware of. In his 5 minute speech, Birke warns his audience of the dark side of industrialized food system: advertising, GMO's (genetically modified organisms) CAFO's (confined feeding operations, petroleum based chemical pesticides and irradiation. The twist is that Birke tells us how he plans to fight against the dark side of food and actually gives us a call to action.
