If your life matters, stop your toxic diet and get healthy. Do yourself a favor in this mess we seem to be in and pay attention to your “information diet” as well as to your “healthy diet”. Everything on commercial T.V. is propaganda and spin; news, ads, and programming. I wanted to write something current and trendy with social inequities as a topic. This turned out to be something I did not know enough about from the other man’s perspective. After doing a little research, the information could be and should be a semester college course or a 2-year course in a youth program just to provide everyone with an overview to have an educated opinion on what the real problem is. Pointing you in the right direction may be the best place to start. I recommend the Rich Roll podcast or YouTube #529. Rich interviews John Lewis and John Salley. Lewis is from “Bad Ass Vegan” among his projects and Salley, the former NBA SuperStar who is a well-known entrepreneur and vegetarian. The interviewees explain some of the problems with social inequities as well as diet and health issues in the black communities.
John and John explain the problem as they see it and a solution from their view. The BLM movement and the George Floyd death are discussed. They state clearly what the protests are about. They talk about a multitude of current problems that are facing America today. One social issue they discuss is Food Inequity or the Urban Nutrition Desert. They have a plan to improve the quality of what is being eaten in the Black community. Listen and learn from this podcast. link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WJ6HdT84uWg
I believe that very little investigation is needed to illuminate the same issues in our Brown communities. Change in the diet in the brown communities is happening in the healthy promotion of Mexi-vegetarian cooking. You can check that out online or in select restaurants. The social inequities are another story in the Brown community are another problem to be addressed.
I repeat, if your life matters then take proper care of it. Eat healthy, get a fitness program, find a way to feed your spirit. If your life matters you need to be part of the change. Over 50% of the American population is sick (black, brown, red, blue, yellow, white). These are Lifestyle disorders; obesity, pre-diabetes, diabetes-2, high blood pressure, and coronary heart disease. It is time to change. No one likes to be told what to do, ie. wear a mask, wash your hands, stand back, but this is the time to step up and do the right thing.
There is a solution. Begin here and now.
#1. Stop poisoning ourselves and our children with toxic fast food.
#2. Stop eating processed food. These are made by the companies that gave us cigarettes to addict and eventually kill us.
There is plenty of science to back up an eating change. If you want science, start with Doctor Michael Klaper M.D. Listen to him on Rich Roll podcast #507. Dr. Klaper at 72 has seen the result of the Western diet on the American population. He is giving lectures to medical students on nutrition and a healthy diet. link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rhs1BB7MbHo
I see the result of a poor diet and lifestyle every day at school. Many boys who come into the locker room are overweight from the government provided free breakfast and lunch and who knows what for dinner. These meals from the Government are supposed to be healthy and nutritious. The meal regulations are mandated by government appointees that are also on the corporate food company boards and therefore promote science for food. Chemistry should not be a food choice. Added to that problem are the student eating habits. The calamity is watching the boys throwing away the apple and eating the chips or doughnut. They are addicted to sugar and salt. The attraction to sugar and salt are natural. They are natural when in nature. This is not that.
Stop poisoning yourself and our children.
Here is another starting point. Dr. John Mcdougall has a free book. You can get it in 20 different languages and a child will understand it. This is not my diet of choice, but you will understand this one in minutes.
