    Default STUDY: How the human body responds to processed versus whole foods

    http://www.tedxmanhattan.org/2012

    Artist Stefani Bardin, TEDxManhattan 2011 Fellow, shows us her latest project -- using a "smartpill" to reveal how we digest differently processed foods.

    Stefani produces videos and immersive, interactive installations that explores the influences of corporate culture and industrial food production. Her current project works with gastroenterologist Dr. Braden Kuo at Harvard University where they just completed the first ever clinical study to use the M2A™ and SmartPill devices that look at how the human body responds to processed versus whole foods. She is an Honorary Resident at Eyebeam Art +Technology Center in New York and teaches in the School of Art, Media and Technology at Parsons The New School for Design and in the Food Studies Program at The New School for Public Engagement.

    I liked how the sketch pooped......

    Anyway, clearly Ramen noodles are better for you because they are slowly released carbohydrates rather than immediately broked down carbs.

    LOL
    And the piano, it sounds like a carnival
    And the microphone smells like a beer

    The way I see it, everything comes from the earth and therefore everything is organic.

    ...(joking)...

    But isn't it true in a way?

    No. It's a misnomer. In bio and regular chemistry this happens consistently. For example, testosterone is a steroid hormone that is made up out of cholesterol rings but that has little to do with either systemic LDL and HDL (good and bad cholesterol) and also dietary cholesterol.

    as far as "organic" anything containing carbon is organic since it is the building block of life on our planet but in farming terminology it refers to organic growing techniques. Also, round up is a non-organic compound and is not naturally occurring either/does not come from the Earth.
