    I think the main take away isn't "noise pollution" but stress. So relaxing and not always being wired is healthful or your body goes into "hypermode" and releases some toxic chemicals and hormones that promote various bad effects like fat build up and put your body into overdrive and increase wear and tear.

    Adrenaline literally is horrible for you and can slowly kill you body think it's going to fight a coyote or outrun a bear but your typing away or sitting down.

    I don’t agree with this guy its not that you just stay healthy and fit means you are going to die? What sort of explanation is this? Obviously people do the exercise and get the healthy food for their health. I must say that a no one should ask from the doctor what to eat, doctors are there to help us in curing the disease but what we eat totally depend on us. Why one should go to a doctor and ask him or her what to eat and what not. Yes there is a possibility that doctor ask you that stop eating certain things for a period of time unless you disease cure. But it totally depends on the person itself what is best for his health. Eating healthy and staying fit always put you one step ahead from the doctor.

    Sanitizing everything is not good advice. Have fun with those super bacteria. If you're worried about phones and remotes, wiping them down once a year or after a family member has had the flue is fine. Really, just make sure your whole household know how to wash their damn hands. That's where the problem is.

    I thought Aj's journey was really interesting in the fact that he took everything so literal to the point where it was actually doing more harm than good. I have always heard the saying 'everything is okay or good in moderation', well he took this to the next level and I think it was a great idea because it showed a lot. First of all, I like the fact that it proved to a lot of people that all these healthy habits and tricks that are being preached are actually healthy, they aren't just saying it to say it. Another thing I liked about this was that he talked about how its not just the eating healthy and living and perfect lifestyle that keeps you heathy, its being emotionally happy too. I agree with him when he talked about not shutting his friends and loved ones out because they fulfill his emotional level of healthiness and that played a key role in his journey. Overall I'm glad I watched this video, I enjoyed listening to his journey and taking his advice on some things to make my lifestyle more healthy and more fulfilling.

    There is no doubt the eating a whole food plant based diet based on starchy staples, vegetables, fruit is vital to good health. No oil, no meat, no dairy, no fish. Stay away from cleaning agents, soap, deodorants, chemicals. Only take vitamin B12 and get some sunlight for vitamin D and other immune system hormones. Sprinkle a few spices and ground flax seed.

    I feel like his idea of 'health' only composed of physical health. There is so much more to 'healthy living' than just your physical health. Mental health and social health are also important aspects of our lives — I'm surprised that no medical professional giving him advice took that into consideration. This reflects exactly how our society views mental and social health — invisible.

    This is one of the worst Ted Talks I've ever seen. Plainly a plug for his "books." None of these endeavors are fulfilled by the routes he took. What a crock. Not to mention, his voice makes me want to slit my wrists.

    I read a Year of Living Biblically and loved the book. Lots to think about in there . . . and lots of humor, too.

    This guy is a famous author known for his tongue in cheek humor. So haters should also take this with a bit of eye roll. It's supposed to be funny people!

    I almost hate half the comments here. He intentionally did these things too extreme. It was both for fun and as a personal experiment. Why do half of you seem to think he did this thinking it was the best way to do things? At least it's not all of you.

    Also, it's kinda funny that this speech was pretty much to sell a book. He's got his priorities in order.

    A. J. Jacobs! This guy is funny! The audience is laughing and having fun, yet this comment section is full of party poopers. Yeah, he writes and sells books what's the big crime in that?

    Finally, an entertaining TED Talk. Jeez… I've just seen 6 in a row — that's a 1/6 watchable ratio. Charm is the secret, TED people! Stop letting any boorish, eccentric weirdo do one of these these mini-presentations!

    Haha, there is a phenomenon in my country where people started to fear of sun like never before in 20 years time, even 30 years ago we didn't mind it at all. Luckily I'm not one of them.

    I'm sorry you feel that way Jonathan Pace. I find encyclopedias to be exceptionally useful; I find them to be useful in the discovery and furtherance of knowledge.
    For example: I had no clue what the history of particular islands near India were, so I looked through a Britannica volume, and I discovered that Narcondam Island (located in the Bay of Bengal) contains fossils that date back four hundred million years ago.
    I also learned the name of an editor who wrote a book on his archeological discoveries while on Narcondam Island.
    Therefore, using a single volume of an encyclopedia, I discovered one unknown thing that enlightened me; the second of which led me to a new favourite writer. Knowledge is beautiful, smart, and powerful.
