This is about connecting the dots, making conclusions and weighing that against modern dogma. Lately I'm focusing a lot on health since it's so important yet there's so much conflicting information about it; I am also keen on enhancing productivity, enhancing cognitive capability and general self improvement. My general goal is for each video to provide some takeaway that's applicable in your daily life.

Video description
Comparing the food environment of the U.S. to Japan's.

This video highlights the difference between the food environment of America and Japan. America's obesity rate is about 30% (biggest state is 37.7%, smallest 22.3%) whereas Japan's obesity rate is 3.5%
While there's other countries on each side of the obesity spectrum, I chose to compare these two because I grew up in America and spent the last 7 years here in Japan. The places that I describe as "reasonably healthy" in Japan aren't necessarily places I recommend as "optimally healthy" - I'm simply point out that while convenient food in America ranges from very unhealthy to unhealthy, convenient food in Japan ranges from very unhealthy to pretty healthy.

Why is GERMANY Growing More Than JAPAN? - VisualPolitik EN

Japan and Germany starred in two of the greatest economic miracles of the twentieth century. For three decades, both countries achieved huge growth rates, which allowed both Japan and Germany not only to recover from the damage caused by World War II, but even to become some of the richest countries in the world. However, in Japan, the model came to a sudden halt between 1989 and the early 1990s. Today, the German model has shown itself as superior and has reaped better economic and social results. So the question we ask ourselves in this video is, why has the German model...
