TED talks, or video presentations from people who have “ideas worth spreading”, are a treasure trove of useful information about all sorts of subjects – from families to farming, to medicine, money, animals, creativity, data, exercise, film, food and dozens of other topics. Since we recently shared a roundup of TED talks about the future of healthcare and are constantly on the lookout for inspiring topics in health and healthcare, we thought it’d be useful to recommend a few more TED talks that are worth watching.

Check out these powerful health-related TED talks that’ll open your eyes to things like how to live longer, how to stop eating the wrong things, how to understand trauma, and the science of happiness:
