I very guilty of consuming a lot of processed foods. A lot of it comes from the fact that I'm usually just too busy or tired to really put the necessary energy into cooking a real meal. This new study is giving me some strong motivation to reconsider my dietary habits.

Description from YouTube Video:

TEDxManhattan 2011 Fellow Stefani Bardin created a video that was shown at TEDxManhattan about her latest "smartpill" project on processed and unprocessed food.

Stefani is producing a body of work that explores the influence of
corporate culture and industrial food production on our food system. These
investigations take the form of single and multi-channel videos and
immersive and interactive installations. Her current project is working with
gastroenterologist Dr. Braden Kuo at Harvard University where they just
completed the first ever clinical study to use the M2A™ and SmartPill
devices to 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.
