That guy in the cool uniform making tacos is Vivek Murthy.
If you don’t know Vivek, it so happens he’s the Surgeon General of the United States, and he has some strong thoughts about food. “What demands attention,” he says unequivocally, “is a fundamental building block of health that many are lacking: food.”
In his mind, good food matters as much to health as new medications, new technologies, expanded insurance or improved quality of care.
