Around here, we know a thing or two about getting kicked out of events for speaking our minds.
That's why it didn't surprise us much (though outraged us aplenty) to hear about Yoni Freedhoff's recent removal as a speaker from the Ontario Medical Association's food industry breakfast. You have likely heard of Dr. Freedhoff for his fantastic articles on his blog Weighty Matters.
Three days prior to the talk Dr. Freedhoff was dis-invited from the event, simply told he was "no longer welcome". Dr. Freedhoff decided to share his presentation with the much larger world known as the internet. This is an AMAZING presentation and we highly, highly recommend checking it out. This talk is, as Dr. Freedhoff says "about what the food industry could do to improve public health, why they're not going to and what we can do about it."
Can you see why the big food brands would have taken issue with his presentation? Truth hurts.

Question of the day: What would you like to tell BIG food about their role in our state of health?
