Dear patients, friends and family:

I am issuing the following call to action.  As most of you know I am extremely passionate about diet, nutrition and exercise.  The lack of proper diet and exercise in our society is a full-blown epidemic and it’s killing you, your children, your friends and co-workers – way before their time.  I am asking everyone who reads this  post to please watch Jamie Olivers 2010, award winning, Technology-Entertainment-Design (TED) video and if you can, watch his TV series, Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution, that starts tonight on ABC.  The video is just twenty minutes out of one’s life and may add years to the lives of those that are positively affected by it.

I truly believe it’s never too late to learn something new and it’s also never too late to make a change in your life.  Eating properly is not a time-consuming chore, it’s not difficult and it’s not expensive.

You have all the time in the world, you have all the money you need to buy healthy food, you want to live a long and healthy life and you want the best for your children. I know for a fact that this is true. Remember “Thoughts Become Things” and action is all that’s needed to make these thoughts become reality. Please, just do it!

If after watching the video you have any questions or need help implementing any of  Jamie’s ideas, I am here for you and I want to help.


Dr. Marcus Ettinger –

Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution

Message from Jamie Oliver:

“I believe that every child in America has the right to fresh, nutritious school meals, and that every family deserves real, honest, wholesome food.  Too many people are being affected by what they eat. It’s time for a national revolution. America needs to stand up for better food!

You live in an amazing country full of inspirational people and you have the power to change things. With your help, we can get better food into homes, schools and communities all over America and give your kids a better future.”

Please watch Jamie Oliver’s 20 minute 2010 TED prize winning video (link below). Even if you don’t want to watch Jamie’s TV series or can’t watch it, the video is a must.  Do it for your children and your grandchildren.
