    Healthy Food Healthy Life w/Jamie Oliver

    “In the next 18 minutes when I do our chat, four Americans that are alive will be dead from the food that they eat.”

    Jamie Oliver delivered that powerful opening line at this year’s TED conference. But who’s Jamie and why should you listen to him?

    jamieoliver2Jamie cares. He cares about the health of his children, and your children. He cares about the health of this nation, and all nations. He cares about making a difference in the epic fight against obesity and diet-related disease.

    And Jamie’s no ordinary bloke. He’s an accomplished international chef. But more importantly, he’s a charismatic, honest, and impassioned leader at the helm of a global movement to revolutionize food and health.

    Here’s Jamie in his own words – delivering the most important message on healthy food and life, ever.

    There is much to learn from Jamie’s insights and opinions. Here are the bits I believe to be the most profound, organized by theme. Please share your favorites in the comments below.
    Unhealthy Truths:

    * “Your child will live a life 10 years younger than you because of the landscape of food that we’ve built around them.”
    * “Fact: diet related disease is the biggest killer in the United States right now, here today.”
    * Obesity costs the United States 10% of its healthcare bills = $150 billion/year; in 10 years this cost will double = $300 billion/year

    The Health Revolution:

    * “There needs to be a new standard of fresh, proper food for your children.”
    * “We’ve got to start teaching our kids about food in school, period.”
    * “Under the circumstances, it’s profoundly important that every single American child leave school knowing how to cook 10 recipes that will save their lives.”

    Healthy Responsibilities:

    * “The big brands, the food brands, need to put food education at the heart of their businesses.”
    * “You can care and be commercial. Absolutely.”

    Healthy Hope & Inspiration:

    * “I profoundly believe that the power of food has a primal place in our homes that binds us to the best bits of life.”
    * “I believe, truly, actually, that if change can be made in this country beautiful things will happen around the world. If America does it I believe other people will follow. It’s incredibly important.”

    Jamie’s Wish & Your Call-to-Action:

    Jamie concludes his talk with his wish…

    “My wish is for you to help a strong, sustainable movement to educate every child about food, to inspire families to cook again, and to empower people everywhere to fight obesity.”

    Let’s all help Jamie bring his wish true by spreading his idea onwards. Of course, by helping Jamie succeed we greatly help ourselves and our loved ones live healthier, happier lives. And that’s entirely the point!

    Chlorella/Sea Vegetables-Wonder Foods Wonder Drugs?

    I cannot say enough about the wonderful vegetables of the sea, I mainly ran into their wonderful benefits by accident, while trying to find natural ways to rid the body of mercury toxicity,  from old mercury amalgam  dental fillings and the environment. I have have had allergies and skin problems all the way to back to when I was very young growing up in the Windsor,  Ontario area. Very industrial and right on the Detroit river we even used to swim in it as kids …..yuck now ;-(

    Anyway, a couple years back my teeth starting chipping, and exposing the metal fillings to my gums, and within a few month’s, my heavy metal symptoms got worse, and, I have been tingling everywhere ever since. This led me to natural heavy metal detoxing, which led me to the herb cilantro, and chlorella, considered, to be the best natural form of removing metals from the human body, without drugs.

    I have not 100% verified the link below but it seems just like a good information site .

    That being said I tend to agree with most of what I read there so I thought I would leave it to your discretion.
