Wow what a great video and TED talk! An interesting subject to have at TED, but i really enjoyed it. I loved the biological and genetic aspect of her presentation.

Really good Ted talk. It addresses a topic that needs to be addressed and I like how an actual supermodel is able to deliver this personal message.

I cried watching this! Talk is applicable to any field, any race, gender, or age. Not scientific, but wonderful.
