One poisoning the water to give to a thirsty traveler is indeed a premeditated murderer. Shouldn’t the drinker be charged for not exercising prudence? You think!
So many times we are told that this or that is not good for us. The list is wide and varied from processed foods to sodas, bottom shelf meats, fruits and vegetables. Then on the other hand someone came up with the idea of fast foods. These practices and ideologies have proliferated our cultures taking off like destructive rockets from restaurants and supermarket shelves. They are advertised with alluring ads, usually with a sexy girl at the centerfold.
Acts of poison indeed for the weary, ill-informed soul who believes he has no choice and eat he must eat. He is like a weary and thirsty traveler for sure and needs to drink. He was not forced to drink though, in this case to eat. But like a sheep to the slaughter he sauntered off to consume and partake and to accentuate the cycle of death.
Beware of the ways of the wicked man as he will not be unpunished for his acts of killing the babies through their mother’s milk. Foods which they eat are laced with the poisons that will plunge their little girls into premature puberty and their little boys with deep voice.
This spiraling culture of deteriorating health creates another industry of pills and potions and then we are true addicts. Sometimes you wonder if this double whammy is not contrived or calculated. That to the very things that should sustain us, but instead makes us sick with obesity and its accompanying maladies, then pills and potions to peg us down to this floor, should be one of the conspiracies on Jesse Ventura’s show of Conspiracy Theories.
Yes…while they are “poisoning the water” should you the drinker… be charged though for not exercising prudence? By golly as where you stand, you should.
Many people today take that cowardly stand that they have no choice. I am one of them who say that the only time you have no choice is when you are dead. On the matter of eating junk not even fit for human consumption in some instance, the question of affordability is what have been thrown in my face. The simple situation is that we have been programmed to think that a big meal is what is right which couldn’t be more farther from the truth.
In eating; less is always more.
This could be translated in buying less but of better value. You would be then putting less waste in your body and less work for your digestive system, less strain on your invaluable immune system. Conjunctly the valuable food you eat will not make you unhealthy and less need to pop pills, ingest more potions, and inject more poisons.
It is that simple!
However the irony is that the culture of fast and plentiful will never interpret in such simplicity.
We cannot change the world, even if you agree and take actions to correct this on a personal level. All you can think about is a better quality of health for you and yours. With a little forthrightness and a little pro-activity in growing your own food through Urban Gardens, a phenomenon of San Diego California, I seriously think this is where it starts. This helpful organization does make a difference in healthful and good foods. If living in a metropolitan area, why not utilize pots on a porch, or more ideally in a vegetable plot if you have land.
I laud any effort to educate the masses to turn such monster around and possible kill this dragon. One such effort was put on this summer by Ohio State University. In a project entitled PILLS, POTIONS, AND POISONS , they launched a science enriched career exploration program for 10 to 12 graders in the greater Columbus area (click for more information) Part of the objective of this program was to provide these young ones with an overview of pharmacology and its relationship to health, diseases, and society.
Other schools should ring this bell and implement this program or anything similar. It does not even cost a lot and could go a far way in firing this silver bullet. In fact this program instituted by Ohio State University College of Pharmacy, only cost $75.00 per student. Meals, snacks, all supplies, field trip expenses and even t-shirts were covered.
All Alma maters should follow this trend and even find ways to make it free to the students. The payoff for better health cannot be discounted. Today I enjoy good health at a cost. I hope anyone reading this will not have to pay, as I did. For that reason read my book entitled Prostate Cancer and Me… Or you, The Two Stages, (Man To Man) available at Amazon.com.
