The Cause of Preventable Chronic Diseases

Fact:

The chronic disease rate in children in 1960 was 4%

Today it is 46% percent

Make no mistake, we are sacrificing our children’s health and future for economic gains.

Profit trumps health in our current system.

Until we address food, chemical & environmental policy we will continue to create more disease than prevent. Until then we must continue to educate at local levels on the power of food as medicine and the dangers of chemicals.

Imagine a world without chemical farming. Where our best medicine, whole plant foods are served in all schools and there is access to this best medicine by all. If you believe in a right to health care then it follows that we should have access to our best preventative medicine. Imagine a world where politics and policy bows to and must pass this primary test:  Does this policy help or hurt our children and the planet.

Good for Marianne Williamson for bringing up the true causes of disease that no one else wants to talk about.

Foods and disease, business of medicine:

 

Someday

Someday

chemicals will no longer be used on our food & soil
farmers will make more money growing organic food over grass seed and Christmas trees
animal agriculture will fade away
non-human animals will be happy and free
our soil will become alive again
our rivers and air will be clean
tools for true health will be taught
the homeless will be housed
the hungry will be fed
workers will have a living wage
basic health care and education will be a right and free

whole plant foods, nature’s best medicine, will be maximized
medications will be minimized

compassion & joy over fear, anger and greed
sharing over hoarding
present over past
union over separation

The powers that be wish to keep us disconnected, distracted, confused & fearful of one another, pointing fingers at those unknown from afar.

We are better
Our destiny is a greatness not yet known
Love in the end wins

Liberation is the goal
Every day
Every moment there is a choice to be present, to learn, to listen, to let go and transform

Then to share our gifts with the world
This is why we are here

 

 

Love others

Serve others

Feed others
