If there are sensitive subjects, this is one of them. This is not because we don’t want a perfect diet, but because there are interest groups in modern societies that understand that the best way to control a person or groups of people is to control their needs and the most important aspects of their lives. Thanks to this principle, every important aspect of human life, individual and societal, has fallen victim to the power game among forces striving to control society.
In contemporary society, it was first control of the land that was initiated by dukes and lords of the diverse European kingdoms of the thirteenth century. One can remember that the farmers were simply dispossessed of land and reduced to the level of a common workforce who are easier to manipulate because they could no longer produce their own food. The same principle applies in the spiritual field where one can see the zeal of organised religions determined to divert individuals from their naturally polytheistic tendencies or simply from their local faiths towards beliefs which religions have structured to serve socio-political orientations. One could never finish reciting examples, but one should simply understand that it is a question of power and control that does not necessarily make sense.
If we place diet in the domain of health, we shall understand that even this domain does not escape the power and control struggle. Let’s be honest and courageous: it is no secret that the health field is simply and purely an industry, and like any industry, it too obeys the laws of supply and demand. You are the only person that sees yourself as a human life that deserves to be protected, valued and respected.
If you take a closer look, you will see that traditional healers are practically non-existent in the USA; if a few exist, they are constantly threatened by legal action. Ask why and someone will recite all the accusations that could just as well be directed at the doctors in hospitals.
It is a question of power and control over society. When, in the 1950s, the baby bottle and formula were introduced, young mothers were intelligently discouraged from breastfeeding…. Meat has been recognised by the scientific world as simply bad for any person 40 or older. This is known in every country except this one. Considering how big the meat industry is in the U.S., there is no need to ask people why people don’t know!
For the last thirty years, all the so-called scientific research has uniformly established the fact that eggs raise cholesterol levels in the blood, but now that the egg industry has grown, so-called new studies are trying to prove that “you need eggs”. Whom are they kidding? The reader should understand that it would be a very gross error to think that we can entrust the question of our health into the hands of an institution that is totally impersonal and without a face, and then try to find signs of comfort and honesty.
One of the best nutritional guides, and one that is over 40,000 years old and taught in African temples, states that food can be divided into two big groups. The first group contains what we call staple foods. It is composed of cereals (maize, rice, millet, wheat, etc.), vegetables (spinach, onions, tomatoes, okra, carrots, etc.), and starches (potatoes, yam, taro root, etc.). The second group contains what we call occasional foods. It is composed of animal products (red meat, white meat, fish, insects, etc.) and two groups of vegetable products: fruit (oranges, lemons, bananas, berries, pineapple, etc.) and nuts (coconut, cashew, peanut, etc.).
