Following the Mecury Trail

TED is a small non-profit organisation devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading; it started out in 1984 as a conference bringing together people from three the worlds of Technology, Entertainment and Design.  Since then its scope has become ever broader, including two annual conferences – the TED Conference in Long Beach and Palm Springs each spring plus the TEDGlobal conference in Oxford, UK each summer – and the award-winning TEDTalks video site.

Below is the TED talk by Stephen Palumbi – who teaches and undertakes research in evolution and marine biology at Stanford University – about the link between the ocean’s health and ours.

Stephen Palumbi shows, in an entertaining yet serious video, how toxins at the bottom of the ocean food chain find their way into our bodies.
