11-Year-Old Explains His Take On The Food System (Video)


11-year-old Birke Baehr has "discovered the dark side of the industrialized food system." And he explains it so simply in this five-minute talk at TEDx.

Birke says he used to want to be a pro football player, but now wants to be an organic farmer. He also says that he "likes eating baked kale chips" and that "we can pay the farmer or we can pay the hospital." But his best line might be his closing statement: "Next time you're at the grocery store, think local, choose organic, know your farmer, and know your food."
