How did we get into such a mess with regards to what we're eating?

After posting this blog at 0600 from Stonington, CT on May 29, a reader in Singapore wrote to tell me that "the Gates of Wisdom have finally opened." He's speaking of Bill Gates and you'll see what I am talking about at the end of this blog.

So how do we influence people to incorporate the incredible power of whole foods, plant-based eating into their daily lives? A reader recently asked if our T. Colin Campbell Foundation had a plan for spreading the word? She wrote:
