Tsunami of Diseases Headed Our Way - Know Your Food Before Time Runs Out
a new 565 page book by Dr. Sahadeva dasa is a bible on the subject of modern food and nutrition.
We have taken food for granted. It’s a mistake for which we are paying dearly. Food doesn’t grow on supermarket shelves.
According to United Nations, a disease tsunami is sweeping the world. Humanity is dying out. This is the result of our deep ignorance about our food.
Food processing and health care are now multi-trillion dollar industries. Profit-seeking leeches have realized there is lot of money in making people sick and then selling them fancy healthcare plans. We have taken these merchants of death as our well-wishing friends.
Eating has become a very complicated affair. It is not supposed to be a rocket science. Even the birds, beasts and insects know what to eat. They have no scientific institutions or research organizations.
Time to be enlightened about what we put in our mouth is now. We are digging our grave with our teeth, day in and day out. When will we pull our heads out of the sand and see the reality we face?
If you don’t have good health, the other things like food, housing, transportation, education and recreation don’t mean much.
At least a dozen studies a day are being rolled out to further confuse the already confused public. This book may have some definitive answers to our dinnertime
This book is relevant for ISKCON devotees too because they are also largely dependent on commercial food and dairy enterprise.
It can make a big difference in health to be conscious of simple things like salt. For thousands of years people have eaten salt but so much is being done to this simple food ingredient by the modern food industry.
Free flowing salts are often silica coated which trash the kidney and other organs. Aluminium is used as an anti-caking agent which is a known carcinogen. Normal sea salt contains 93 essential minerals and trace elements where as refined salt contains none and is pure sodium. Its usage has created a hypertension and stroke epidemic.
Growing food, extracting oils etc. have become increasingly violent. Many companies are using flavours made out of human fetuses. Its time we as devotees become more conscious of what we are offering to Krishna and partaking as prasadam. Information contained in the book can be a real eye opener.
It is now available at all leading book stores around the world.
