TED Talks:
* Dr Terry Wahl:  Reversing MS with the Paleo diet  TED talk by Dr. Terry Wahls, MD   Fantastic talk.

* Dr Dean Ornish: Healing through diet ..  TED talk by Dr Dean Ornish Dr Dean Ornish wants you to live longer, and have more fun while you’re at it. He’s one of the leading voices in the medical community promoting a balanced, holistic approach to health, and proving that it works. The author of Eat More, Weigh Less and several other best-selling books, Ornish is best known for his lifestyle-based approach to fighting heart disease.  His research at the Preventive Medicine Research Institute (the nonprofit he founded) clinically demonstrated that cardiovascular illnesses — and, most recently prostate cancer — can be treated and even reversed through diet and exercise. These findings (once thought to be physiologically implausible) have been widely chronicled in the US media, including Newsweek, for which Ornish writes a column. The fifty-something physician, who’s received many honors and awards, was chosen by LIFE Magazine as one of the most influential members of his generation. Among his many pursuits, Ornish is now working with food corporations to help stop America’s obesity pandemic from spreading around the globe.

* Dr Peter Attia talks about obesity and insulan resistance.  But more than an excellent speech, is his message of how some presentations (obesity) may and can be proxy disguises for bigger disorders.  He also talks with great personal morality about the meidcal communities need for a ‘paradigm shift’ towards care, compassion, humility and respect for pateints … absolutely outstanding speech: http://www.tedmed.com/talks/show?id=18029
