Forks over Knives – One Single Change Could Save your Life

Leave your drugs in the chemist’s pot if you can cure the patient with food. Hippocrates

This article was published in 2008: Rethinking the Meat-Guzzler. If it wasn’t for the little knowledge I’ve gleaned from a few books on how the mind works, I’d be asking myself why people still eat meat …..

Who is protecting the public?

  • The US Dept of Agriculture is the voice of the food industry
  • The American Dietetic Association is controlled by food corporations.
  • The insurance industry profits bt selling plans to the sick
  • The Pharma industry pockets billions annually from chronic illnesses.
One quarter of what you eat keeps you alive. The other three quarters keep your doctor alive. Egyptian proverb.

Learnings for me :

If the entire US population were to adopt a plant based diet FOR JUST ONE DAY, the nation would conserve the following resources:
  1. 100 billion gallons of drinking water
  2. 1.5 billion pounds of crops
  3. 70 million gallons of gasoline
  4. 33 tons of antibiotics.
Worldwide, farm animals consume 756 million tons of grain, an equivalent amount would be enough to provide the 1.4 billion people living in abject poverty with approx 3 pounds of grain per day (twice the amount necessary to survive). THE WORLD IS NOT RUNNING OUT OF FOOD. We (the relatively affluent) have found a way to consume four or five times as much food as would be possible if we were to eat the crops we grow directly. Geniuses!!
Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.
Albert Einstein US (German-born) physicist (1879 – 1955)
