We made this difficult decision for the TED Archive because we believe that a well-moderated conversation allows for better commentary from more people and more viewpoints. Studies show that aggressive and hateful comments silence other commenters and drive them away; unfortunately, YouTube's comment moderation tools are simply not up to the task of allowing us to monitor comments on so many videos at once.

"Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution" (The unhealthiest city in America...)

Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Premieres Friday March 26, 9 - 10 p.m., ET on ABC

Jamie Oliver is here to start a revolution. The impassioned chef, TV personality and best-selling author is determined to take on the high statistics of obesity, heart disease and diabetes in this country, where our nation's children are the first generation not expected to live as long as their parents. Oliver is inviting viewers to take a stand and change the way America eats, in our home kitchens, schools and workplaces, with the thought-provoking new series, Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution, debuting FRIDAY, MARCH 26 (9 - 10 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. The series is produced by Ryan Seacrest Productions and Fresh One Productions.

In the series, Oliver heads to Huntington, West Virginia - which has been called the unhealthiest city in America -- to start his new cooking initiative. He hopes to help get Huntington off that list and start a chain reaction of positive change across the country. Oliver says, The time is right for people to rediscover the sense of pride, satisfaction and fun you can get from cooking for the people you love. There's an incredible community in Huntington, and I want this experience to be a celebration of what we can achieve when people come together. I want to prove that turning around the epidemic of obesity and bad health doesn't have to be boring or dull in the slightest. Wonderful stories will unfold in Huntington, and hopefully this will inspire the rest of the States.

Needled by local naysayers, challenged by ingrained unhealthy habits and government bureaucracy, and welcomed by some of the most surprising youngsters, families and local leaders, Oliver shows how, in just a few short months, he tried to transform Huntington as a template for the entire country. The stakes? Simply the health of our country's citizens and the legacy for its children.

The series is loosely based on Jamie Oliver's U.K. series, Jamie's Ministry of Food and Jamie's School Dinners, which saw his successful grass-roots efforts improve the school lunches in communities there. For the latter show, it resulted in a total overhaul of the school dinner program in the U.K. In America, he's turning his attention to helping people of all ages eat more balanced meals and cook with fresh ingredients, not only at schools, but also homes, workplaces and even restaurants.

Oliver's recent television credits include Oprah's Big Give for ABC. He is the author of nine popular cookbooks, including The Naked Chef, Cook with Jamie and Jamie at Home. Hyperion published his latest cookbook, Jamie's Food Revolution: Rediscover How to Cook Simple, Delicious, Affordable Meals, in October 2009.

Executive producers of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution are Jamie Oliver, Ryan Seacrest and Craig Armstrong (Extreme Makeover: Home Edition).

Jamie Oliver #madebydyslexia Interview

Jamie Oliver talks to about his dyslexia and shares personal insights and advice

Jamie Oliver’s Sugar Rush

In the opening minutes, we see five-year-old Mario having rotten teeth extracted in the operating theatre under general anaesthetic, with Oliver standing awkwardly alongside, nearly in tears.

Later, we are in the podiatry clinic, looking at close-up shots of the stumps of people with type-2 diabetes who have had their feet amputated.
When Oliver flicks a stack of the 40 sugar cubes people in Britain consume every day in their food and fizzy pop across the room, we know where we are going. It’s 10 years on from School Dinners and the chef is on a new crusade, a war against the added sugar in our diet that he blames for the rising epidemic of bad teeth and type-2 diabetes that, he claims, could finally scupper our crumbling NHS – costing £30m and £8.8bn a year respectively.

Then there is Mexico, where even babies are given Coca Cola but the tide has begun to turn, thanks to a consumer movement that won the battle with government for a tax on sugary drinks.

He is prepared to put his money where his mouth is – “taxing” sugary drinks in his own restaurants. We see him in the Channel 4 film in a meeting with other restaurant chains, trying to persuade them to join in. Oliver believes that the great British public will get behind him, though, and persuade the government that we need the tax - which would be invested in health and schools. In the meantime, he says, in taking on the sugar industry, “I know I’m going to get a bashing.” But he appears to care passionately about this. “Not in a smug way – I feel totally righteous,” he said. “I’m doing it as a father and because every clever person that I have met realises we’re all aligned in the same catastrophe.”

This documentary was aired on Channel 4 on 3 September 2015

On 19 Oct 2015, Jamie Oliver appeared before the Health Select Committee to discuss how to tackle childhood obesity and the amount of sugar children consume.

On 16 March 2016 George Osborne introduced a new sugar levy on the soft drinks industry to combat obesity. Mr Osborne told MPs: Doing the right thing for the next generation is what this government and this Budget is about. The tax will be levied on the drinks companies by 2018, giving them time to change the ingredients and recipes of their products.

Jamie Oliver's Healthy Chicken Nuggets Recipe Recreated

Jamie Oliver's Healthy Chicken Nuggets Recipe recreated by me, Tabitha. I try my best to recreate one of my favorite Chef's meals. These chicken nuggets are a delicious and healthy alternative to those yucky store bought ones. In fact they're less expensive and take less time to make. Only 7 ingredients needed, Chicken, egg, flour, breadcrumbs, olive oil and salt and pepper. They're simple to make in no time and they taste fantastic! I put them over a fresh salad to make it a meal. Watch the video and try it out yourself. I know your gonna love this tasty dish. If you like cooking like I do, this is going to be fun! Pause the show and cook along with me! Don't be a chicken nugget, haha! We can share a bite and compare notes in the comments. Thank you for subscribing, liking, commenting and sharing. I love you and I really appreciate you visiting me. :)
