The Dark Plague Against Eating Healthy Nutritious Food (Part 1)
Posted Apr 30 2008 11:01pm
In my search for real nutrition news, I've found an article that I whole-heartedly agree with from nutrition author, Tony Isaacs. He exposes the reality of the battle we are in for whole food nutrition.
Now, it's not a "we against them" thing. I am not looking to go to war with anyone. I do, however, believe that if I am consistently striving for eating healthy nutritious food, then I need to also educate myself and others on how we can all more effectively do that. Sometimes we need to look "behind the scenes" to understand the force at which me must pursue what we know to be right and best for ourselves and our loved ones.
It's quite lengthy so I will seperate it into parts with a little each post. At the bottom of the article, I'll list Tony's background and other works. My source for this write up was http://www.naturalnews.com/, with the health ranger, Mike Adams.
THE FOUR HORSEMEN OF THE HEALTH APOCALYPSE
(NaturalNews) A dark plague has crept across the land, operating largely in shadow for generations and set upon us by an evil master whose footsteps have fouled the earth for as long as man has walked upon it. Led by four evil horsemen who have been corrupted and enslaved by the master, the plague has cast its shadowy tentacles from sea to sea through towns and cities large and small, sparing no one. Almost no location has proven remote enough to escape its reach and it has visited death, illness and suffering on young and old alike.
The plague is Bad Health. Its master is Greed. And the Four Horsemen who have been corrupted and perverted into servants of greed who spread the plague are our Food, our Medicine, our Industry and our Government. The effects of this evil plague can be measured in terms of the dollars and the lives it cruelly affects - billions of dollars annually in ill gained profit at the expense of deaths that run into the hundreds of thousand and suffering that affects millions.
Throughout history, men have existed whose greed and lust for wealth and power has driven them to put their own selfish interests above those of humanity itself. Such greed has been behind most of the evils in the history of mankind and caused untold human suffering. Today the very health of modern man itself is under attack by the greedy elite who willingly trade profits for the ability of their fellow men and women to enjoy good health and live long enjoyable lives.
Through a process that began in the late 1800's, those who place personal gain and wealth above health and humanity have corrupted the four most important cornerstones that should be our shining benefactors and guarantors of providing mankind with good, nutritious food to drink, air to breath and water to drink: our food supply, our medicines, our industry, and our government.
Today, instead of marshalling their efforts to benefit humanity, these cornerstones we depend on have been corrupted to benefit an elite few, turning them instead into just the opposite of what they should be - darkly corrupted purveyors of illness which rob us of our health and our wealth, take years off our life spans, and force us into a lifetime of managed illness and poor nutrition. If allowed to continue, the downward spiral in health may ultimately threaten the ability of mankind to even continue as a species.
Here then are the four fallen cornerstones of health and a brief overview of how greed has turned them from providers and protectors of our health into vassals that provide profits at the expense of health and humanity:
FOOD Our soils have been depleted, our food crops have been genetically engineered to produce higher yields and more bulk with less nutrition and to withstand more pesticides, herbicides and artificial fertilizers that ensure higher profits at the cost of multitudes of health problems for those who consume them. Furthermore, the food on our grocer's shelves has had the nutrition processed out, with harmful additives processed in to enhance shelf life, color, taste and texture, with the same result. The advent of large scale industrial farms favored with government subsidies has changed the emphasis from good nutrition coming from a local human face to good production and poor, contaminated nutrition from faceless industries. Thanks to over-farming and the advent of chemical fertilizers, our soils are rapidly being stripped of valuable minerals, including trace minerals. Only the three primary minerals plants need to grow are being replaced - from artificial chemical fertilizers, but not the 60 or more they need to have optimum nutrition. _____ *Next Post we'll delve into the other 3 fallen cornerstones: medicine, industry, and government.*
