Just finished watching a film on the VEGAN diet. The title is protected so not to accommodate or deny. Already had read one of the many books on the Paleo diet. Hence…the left to the right title. Shall we get started? Now a reasonable man might think, here are two suggested changes in food intake that appear to be from both ends of the teaching scale. Or better yet, is there a balanced approach? Or maybe, how shall a person make any decisions when the facts are so far apart? Then I recalled a diet “with no grains.” Or the gluten free. Or the organic. Or the range fed. I can only conclude that besides wanting to sell books on the next foolish diet thing, there can be no good answer to the food intake thing.
There is “common ground.” Everyone agrees clean, fresh, clear, water is always necessary. That’s good. Oh but wait? There is a website that states that 85% (percent) of the planet’ people live on arid ground. Then on a different website, almost one billion people do not have the clear, clean water available to drink. So now some more left to right stuff.
This really comes down to no choice at all for diet thing, but eating and drinking what is locally grown and coming from the planet as a resource. Bad or good? How shall we think about the diet thing? Change the environment so it can provide the necessary food and drink. That takes money. Here is where most everyone jumps ship. This is why I jump ship. Who educates the population about food and water. Seems to me there needs to be a “thinking shift.” Let’s start with a Bible verse: “For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark”
