10:30 pm
i thought that my weight was all my fault. i felt like a failure and frankly unworthy. ready and it took me awhile to really start question a most belief and challenging those thoughts like well, are you really a failure? me answer is no, i'm not i'm not. but it took a while to get to that point. the obesity a blob of our arrows fantasies caught in a web of prejudice. it prompts scolding for poor choices and accusations of laziness. omnipotent genes provide an alibi. what it will be city were collected, failure, not an individual symptom of the free market that hates, that, that produces fax, those and a be for genic society, the news
10:31 pm
global phenomenon, not one country to talk today. ah, the right now there are 2000000000 people from children who are overweight or. busy obese, this only happen by magic, it takes work and you need to look at who it is, is driving that process. well, otherwise we live in, in societies in which, you know, one on of every 3 people has diabetes where everybody's obese, where people are dying of stroke and heart attack at age 40. i mean the choice is an obvious one. if we don't do something, we will collapse as society is not just in america, but in mexico and russia, and china and europe. it's happening everywhere. almost everywhere in the world. men and women are battling the fate, political leaders, physicians,
10:32 pm
regular citizens. they brave the multinational. ah, we truly believe that the industry is wrong and that their poisoning and targeting people and people need to know about it. with wielding the weapons of law science and public policy, they want to help us regain control of our body. in the, in the 1st years of the 21st century western countries declared war on obesity. to no avail. experts estimate that by 2030 there will be 250000000 obese children in the world. ah government taken the right pack. ah
10:33 pm
ah, at least 2 such men and women in the k or as a way to the right to still finding the base city. life changing impacts on the body. slowly low your quality of life. ah. according to the messages spread far and wide, we alone are to blame for our weight. fat people who are simply gluttons unable to control their appetites. who have a choice, make the change the we are told it's up to us. but is it really? for me, the most difficult segmented. copeland is this idea that the people have no
10:34 pm
willpower. the people and larger bodies people are busy, don't have a will power or else they wouldn't carry excess weight because we're told so often that that's all it takes to lose weight. go to the gym, follow this diet program. you know, if you just stick to it, you'll get there. i can help officials for sure that a little person will power was all it would take to lay obesity. exercise more became the mantra of the 2000. it would go around the world. ah. so let's start moving. let's start pushing, twisting, climbing and raising the roof. let's start moving more every day for 30 minutes or 6 feet. and if you feel like stopping, you can always start back up. let's start moving. it's so easy for us to look at
10:35 pm
being person and say they have set will power there. so moral and strong and then look at someone with a weight problem and attribute all of these negative traits. oh, they're just weak. they don't have willpower. it's not at the individual level, it's not individual willpower. and if we go on believing that or never change this obesity epidemic, hey everybody, you know, getting active every day helps us all be healthy and feel great. the same old ernest advised about exercise is proffered that the best intention in 2010. michelle obama launched the campaign against child obesity. got to 1st lady, let her back, especially to move your body aiming to set healthier standards for food, served in school lunch. when we send our kids to school, we have a right to expect that they will be eating the kind of fatty salty,
10:36 pm
sugary food that we're trying to keep from them when they are at home. unfortunately, michelle obama was on the right track right from the beginning. and i think she got derailed by a mixture of bad advisors. and by bringing in the food, the food companies and they were able to dilute very powerful message down to something where, you know, it's just her on tape television, encouraging people to move that way rather than, let's move together as a movement to be able to transform the system better became moved more just to be on the easily uptake the public service message a boon to the multi nationals who quickly joined the dance in 2015. coca cola created the global energy balance network worldwide. think tank dedicated to solving the obesity problem. get out by promoting exercise. most of the
10:37 pm
focus in the popular media and in the scientific breath, you know they're eating too much eating too much, eating too much, blaming fast food, blaming, sure, very drinks and so on. and there's really virtually no compelling evidence of that . in fact is a call. professor steve blair is one of the head researchers recruited for the network. he's a specialist in physical exercise that may be the reason they're eating more calories than they need is because they're not burning many. so we need to be in balance. this isn't a can do here. okay. because any passers all the money back corner from kyla, don't i guess she'll be here because they do jeff bonn. i'm just gonna put you on the phone. i just wanna be okay. here's how that translates to marketing. i just wanna be okay.
10:38 pm
the industry has been focused on the story of calories and calories out. no, you can drink what you want. just go, go on and jog and work off your calories. well, we know that actually is not true. that's not the true story. allegedly, to avoid waking, we would simply have to burn the same number of calories as we eat. the theory sounds logical. unfortunately, it is untrue. physical exercise actually plays a minor role and weight control. you have to jog for one hour to eliminate a hamburger a pick. so though requires over 2 hours of running. if you look at it from a calorie perspective, that is fat accumulation equals sort of calories in minus calories out. and they say, well that's always true because if you look at from, from a physics perspective, that is always true. but the problem is that that's the physics and we're dealing
10:39 pm
with human physiology and really has nothing to do with each other. i think we should take the focus off of calories. yes, you can eat less and lose weight for a short while, but your body will fight back. and over the long term, we know that metabolism is stronger than willpower. me, alright. if individual will power is not to blame. what caught the rise nearby city curve starting in the 1980. so what's the difference between 197-2019? while i don't think it's the basic biology of the person, but it's something to do with the way that we eat both the types of food and the frequency of the food that we me and 40 years are eating habits that under gone, are real revolution fermented by public health policies of the late 19 seventies.
10:40 pm
at the time, cardiovascular disease was the grim reaper, causing millions of them. the senate special committee on nutrition looking into the connection between diet and hot sugar lobby, succeeded in having a high fat diet declared guilty. a false verdict that had serious consequences. public health officials recommended that we did use our intake effect grains coded as cluster all free replace meat as a stable food. and so eating more brad more brace more potatoes for example, because they're very low fat and, you know, eating less dairy less meet low fat dairy. that kind of thing. that was the standard advice for so many years. and i think that is the most likely culprit as to why people have gain weight u. s. government called on the food industry to market thousands of processed foods that were reduced in fat and centric contract. so if you're the food industry and
10:41 pm
you're supposed to reduce fat, what are you going to replace it with? well processed grains and sugar. the grow industry, slight of hand, made the transition payment, sugar, a cheaper placement for fat made light pasty and chemist went to work extruding, ingredient, supermarket shelves filled with attractively package, starches, reprocessed, the bread, cornflakes, and convenience to the genesis for food industry did what they were told they were happy to do it because sugar is actually cheaper than fat. so they could increase their and call these products headphones. public ultimately paid the price. the one man you knew were the one in for children here right now is overweight. one of the big reasons
10:42 pm
with our thinking, we give them biscuit sweets, kristen chocolate, every day. eating excessive sugar causes deep dysfunctions inside our bodies, starting with a hormone and balanced. when you eat certain hormones go off and the main hormone that's involved in energy metabolism is insulin. insulin determines whether the calories we eat confirmed or get stored as fat for all of you out there that regret not being around a soviet union at the time when they are collapsed. a lot of people understand you about that. lot of interesting things. math time was their writing of a journal. anyway, they get to have that experience today right here in the good old us that long when i would show the same wrong. why don't,
10:43 pm
i just don't rule out the thing because the after an engagement equals the trail, when so many find themselves, well, the part we choose to look for common ground in look forward to talking to you all that technology should work for people. a robot must obey the orders given it by human beings, except when the shorter the conflict with the 1st law show your identification. we should be very careful about artificial intelligence. the point obviously is to great truck rather than fear take on various jobs with artificial intelligence, we'll summoning the demon a
10:44 pm
robot must protect its own existence with glucose, sugar that is fuels nearly all living cells. when we eat our pancreas secretes insulin. oh, and this injury is what transport, sugar to ourself, the been our diet for heavy and foods that are starchy and sweet by processed foods . in fact, our insulin levels are constantly high ah. with too much in our fat cells. the fat tissue in our body takes up to many calories and hold on to them. so there aren't enough calories for the rest of the body. there aren't enough calories from the muscle for the organs in the brain. and
10:45 pm
that's why we get hungry. so these highly processed food, fast foods, should read beverages and junk foods that were snacking on the digest very quickly . but they don't provide much satiety. so it's these process carbohydrates driveway. ah, the negative impact these ultra process foods have on metabolism. nothing has got their spread, the it's profitable to sell food that is fatty and sugary and salty and addictive. is much less profitable to sell food that is wholesome, that is high in fiber and is minimally processed. so what's driving the obesity epidemic? it's corporate. probably me does dietary revolution has bothered empires,
10:46 pm
nestling unit lever, coca cola kellogg's pepsico. currently a handful of huge corporations, nearly every brand of food. together they pull in $500000000000.00 in annual sales and have taken control of our dinner plate, the food. because a huge sector by society, it's not only the food company, it's not just a nestle and dan ohms, and coke and pepsi. it's the food retailers, it's the walmarts and curry force. it's the agra businesses are huge, that control all the supplies of commodities. and then also the marketers, it's all the advertises, making money from marketing junk food and beverages to people. so we're talking about massive, massive component of our society is focused on selling the world.
10:47 pm
unhealthy food and beverage of the food multi nationals have a secret weapon. price. the products they sell are up to 60 percent cheaper than fresh foods. the shoppers with the smallest budget stuck up with these low income consumers. sitting ducks are the primary victims of the system, the ah, the hamilton family lives in one of washington's poorest neighborhoods, a few miles from the white house. the fresh produce is nearly impossible to find within walking distance. yes
10:48 pm
or so you got the washington wealthier areas. the city rate is 10 percent here it is 642 percent of the population. today's midnight features not ground beef and tomato sauce, with extra sugar garnished with sour cream. one last meal in the body. that guy will not be in jesus name. we do pray, a man, hey, man locally owned family restaurants had abandoned the hamilton's inner city neighborhood. fast food chains rushed in to fill the vacuum. their impact is multiplied by an implacable marketing strategy that starts on the
10:49 pm
street corner. the food industry says it's your fault, but the reality is they've changed the whole food environment. they've created a food environment where every place you turn, if it's on your smartphone, if it's on seeing a billboard, if it's seeing any kind of advertisement, if it's watching television and when you see their junk food being pushed. the manipulation starts with the children. the mind to the studies show there is a direct link between the ads, children, see, and the types of food they like to eat. the world health organization recommends regulating food commercials on tv, but the industry is ingenuous. it infiltrates new areas, like social networks,
10:50 pm
or online game. that's what marketing is supposed to do. that's what it's designed to do. they're very good at it. so the marketing was successful. the question is, was it helpful? the my help? the leak marketing hides the fact that junk food causes lin at the most devastating diseases that exists. diabetes today, it kills one person every 6 seconds around the world. 25 years ago. if i told you that i have an 18 year old patient in my clinic with type 2 diabetes, you would have said, oh my gosh, it's incredible. it's so rare. and so strange. now it's very commonplace that young people, children have type 2 diabetes were
10:51 pm
like fighting a war at home. it's heartbreaking. it's unfair, it's unjust. people are making money off of this suffering. it's preventable. it's, it's dehumanizing to ignore it. it's in humane to ignore it. was kenny h 141 and willie 15 must take diabetes, medication daily or killing those. it's actually math suicide in a way in a country like mine. we don't give them health insurance and they've got the diabetes and they have the hypertension. we're killing a generation of poor the one of every 2 african american children will develop diabetes. one of every 5 african american children is obese. the rate is even higher among hispanics.
10:52 pm
a young woman spoke out and triggered a rebellion. we eat like we still played yesterday, i decided to write down some a really is my day to dig diet part. that was a 1000000 things back for now. and then there was sugar, flowers, sugar, hijacking it oil grew post or serve way powder high fruit toast, sugar died, 40 died brands to dive. dad died. i heard a young woman who was 16 at the time and she performed upon that, even though it may remain the hair on my arm stand up. and for the 1st time i saw a young person describing the obesity and diabetes epidemic as a social problem. and i realized that she, in a way, is
10:53 pm
a much more effective messenger than i ever could be. but i haven't even now diabetes, that by it why id like suicide news games. shillinger is coordinating the energy his nonprofit youth speaks holt's writing workshops for young people in the bay area. he wants to use wrap in spoken word to raise consciousness and thwart food and st propaganda. this idea that they were being lied to. that's what inspired them to become change agent . that's what turned their palm from being a piece of art into a weapon. armed with talent and a video camera, they launched an awareness campaign called the bigger picture. so for me,
10:54 pm
each one of those films as a stone that we were throwing at at the waterhole and trying to see which one could make the biggest way the middle, my daily routine with the wake up walked through the bus, pass the liquor stores past pop past the 1st visit to the 2nd order, my favorite, well, hash brown bodies drawer and i don't know if we love deserting. i just love not being hungry, written and performed chiefly by young hispanics and african americans. the videos garnered over a 1000000 views on youtube. so i, i think awareness makes it possible for people to make choices. i think we're fighting to be heard. i think we're fighting, get the word out. i think we're fighting against interest that want to see us fail
10:55 pm
as long as big. so to spending money, they don't sleep that the campaign a fight against them can't sleep. meanwhile, 3000 miles away on the east coast. another activist has risen up and come to podium to tell of community unit being decimated. and how is a crisis in our community and for me as a crisis, because i'm finding that i'm losing more people to sweets than i am to the streets and i'm losing more people took diet related issues than i am to the streets to gun violence. this is an epidemic, and one that i'm deeply concerned about. the on the, in his combat against this evil reverend coats, it's not inhibited by the convention associated with a calling. then this can of soda palm right. there are
10:56 pm
39 grams of sugar. 39 grams of sugar in one can know how many teaspoons of sugar is that anyone know how, who almost 10 d sponsors. so i say why i want to see how much that is. so pastor cope actually the major demonstration during the sermon. and so that to me was like so impactful because i just never realized like how much sugar i was actually putting inside of my body every time i would drink a soda. and so i'm doing that at least $7.00 to $8.00 times per day. and maybe a half me this is how much sugar is in just one drink. right. and our children are getting pre diabetic by the age
10:57 pm
of 9. me borderline diabetes. by the time that 13 years old and we are sabotaging the entire generation of our people because of sugar. people were very shocked when he poured the sugar inside the glass. they were like this demonstration show them what they probably should have learned like from childhood. ah and in my phone i 60 and i don't i just saw up dollar format isis fighters and now voting
10:58 pm
a. philippine naval ship. me $900.00 just aren't abdulla still don't know who was waiting for them. and i didn't actually get a hold of me . how much of history is about patterns that are ebbs and flows of political passions. most of the time, these passions are negotiated through compromise. other times there is a people violence and even separation. the idea of succession today is not far
10:59 pm
fetch. we are witnessing a cultural session and separation couldn't go even further algorithm . so neural networks have been following us everywhere. we look online because our relationships are what matters most of us and that's how we find meaning and how we make sense of our place in silicon valley. see, don't mention in the slick presentations. however, the ghost workers who train the software humans are involved in every step of the process when you're using anything online. but we're sold as is miracle of automation behind your screen. it's a vulnerable workforce. that seems algorithm is for next to nothing on a very good day to do $5.00. now, a really bad day. i think you can use workers are available by design. it's about labor costs,
11:00 pm
but it's also about creating layers of lessening responsibility between those who solicit the kind of work and need us and those who do it. the whistleblower daniel hailey centers to 45 months in prison for leaking classified details about america's drone assassination program. germany's rock was huge explosion at an industrial park housing, chemical company environmental. it's a concern about the flu of black smoke. it has been created full of potential talks in police, officers and lawmakers alike are unable to hold back the tears on day one of us congressional hearing and january capital held. right. whereas supposedly balanced puddle spent the session largely brushing from supporters and france approved a new law restricting travel and entry to public faces for p.
