The provocative ad has become a story unto itself, because it has in only a few days generated nearly one million views on YouTube, and has been covered by newspapers and broadcast media around the world, including the Wall Street Journal, U.K.'s The Guardian, CNN, the New York Times and hundreds of other media outlets.
Robbins goes on to construct a convincing argument that it's diet that is mainly responsible for our out-of-control medical costs. It's a very good read.
