The Secrets of Food Marketing or otherwise known as, Don't Believe the Label!

I love eTalks and TedTalks.  The various talks given range from all over the spectrum and are usually pretty outstanding.  The one below is no exception.  However, this is the only etalk that I've seen where the speaker begins her talk with humor and gets the audience on her side and chuckling, and then she turns the conversation on its end to where the audience simply can't handle it any longer.  

It continues with shots of the viewers looking shocked and appalled and it's obvious that her audience fully understands the situation but none of them wants to look in the mirror.  She ends her brilliant presentation by walking off the stage to no sound, no applause, only horror and confusion as to what just happened. 

This is an excellent speech that should get you thinking.  This is not for the faint of heart - it has photos and it has impact. 

Watch to the end.

There is some speculation that the audience members are all actors but the fact remains that this is an exceptional speech on a crucial topic for in-depth consideration.
