Like normal human beings, I’m the type of person who is easily distracted by YouTube. However, I tend to like to feel that I’ve gotten something out of the hours… uhh… minutes that I spend watching videos, which is why I like channels such as AsapSCIENCE.

By the way, this is not to say that all food you find in the supermarket is healthy. Of course there are many factors not touched on in this video. But these videos are a nice way of stimulating interest in the subject and encouraging further research.
If you like these videos, then check out the AsapSCIENCE channel on YouTube.
