Inspireme#5-David H. Newman reveals the truth is in the numbers

One thing I truly want to show in this series is how inspiration can be found in all things, whether small or large. In this TedTalk, Dr.Newman shows how numbers, when looked at without preconceived notions, can illuminate truth.  We as a people have become inundated with information, which in many ways is a positive thing, but many people use this information as a way to get quick page views, to create fear and uncertainty, to keep you coming back for more. This is done politically, environmentally and especially in the health field. People need to learn to become literate in science and logic, in seeing past the bullshit to the real truths and start getting shit done in this world.
