Reversing Type 2 diabetes starts with ignoring the guidelines | Sarah Hallberg | TEDxPurdueU

Can a person be "cured" of Type 2 Diabetes? Dr. Sarah Hallberg provides compelling evidence that it can, and the solution is simpler than you might think.

She is board certified in both obesity medicine and internal medicine and has a Master’s Degree in Exercise Physiology.

What does the Quran really say about a Muslim woman's hijab? | Samina Ali | TEDxUniversityofNevada

In recent times, the resurgence of the hijab along with various countries’ enforcement of it has led many to believe that Muslim women are required by their faith to wear the hijab. In this informative talk, novelist Samina Ali takes us on a journey back to Prophet Muhammad's time to reveal what the term “hijab” really means -- and it's not the Muslim woman's veil! So what does “hijab” actually mean, if not the veil, and how have fundamentalists conflated the term to deny women their rights? This surprising and unprecedented idea will not only challenge your assumptions about hijab but will change the way you see Muslim women. Samina Ali is an award-winning author, activist and cultural commentator. Her debut novel, Madras on Rainy Days, won France’s prestigious Prix Premier Roman Etranger Award and was a finalist for the PEN/Hemingway Award in Fiction. Ali’s work is driven by her belief in personal narrative as a force for achieving women’s individual and political freedom and in harnessing the power of media for social transformation. She is the curator of the groundbreaking, critically acclaimed virtual exhibition, Muslima: Muslim Women’s Art & Voices. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Samantha Stephens imagines a world where we all get a little more creative with our oatmeal. Through a passion for health and an interest in business, Sam inspires us to add some bacon to our oatmeal.

Samantha Stephens is the chef/owner of OatMeals, the world’s first oatmeal bar. She is also Quaker Oats’ Creative Oatmeal Officer. Sam is originally from Fairfax, VA, and made the move to NYC in 2000 to attend Baruch College, where she majored in Psychology and minored in French.
A desire for healthy living and eating right became essential for Sam that first year in NYC when the ‘freshman 15’ quickly became the ‘freshman 30’. Living on a budget and focusing on health & wellness, Sam started eating oatmeal for breakfast, lunch, and even dinner, and thought of many creative ways to jazz it up. Reading about the numerous, outstanding health benefits of oats led her to want to share her oatmeal recipes, knowledge of oats and its amazing qualities with everyone she knew. The idea for an oatmeal bar blossomed but took many years to come to life.
