This documentary studies emerging economies and their “new” food habits.

    Is not that interesting actually it sounds more exotic than what it actually is, still in Chiapas you can relate easily with people from different cultural and economic backgrounds than in other parts of the country.

    Adiie thanks for sharing. I look forward to watching this tonight. I grew up in Guadalajara, Jalisco and I completely agree with you. I'm also curious to know more of your perspective from your various living locations.

    Thanks, I will try to be more active. This video is not mine, and I did not have any part in the making of it. I just wanted to share it, because the first place of the study in basically were I come from, and the second place is China, which is were I am located right now. There is a huge lack and distortion of information here too. But in a different way.

      Would love to see linkshares about your perspective. The conversation around global health is interesting, and definitely something we talk about on GOOD. Global Health Corps shares stuff that's pretty fascinating: http://www.good.is/members/global-health-corps and our Global Development hub has great stuff on it too: good.is/global-development. Let me know if you ever have feedback for us! Email me at [alessandra]at[goodinc]dot[com]!

    Great video Adlie. I particularly like your personal story about growing up in Mexico. You should share something about yourself in your profile so members know more about you. Would love to know your twitter too if you have one!
