Rima E. Laibow, MD, Medical Director of the Natural Solutions Foundation, will address a huge gathering of farmers in India urging them to resist dangerous farming techniques which will destroy not only their societies but the health of their countries as well. Dr. Laibow, a proponent of natural solutions to health, will point to the increased pesticide use, health risks and social disruption brought about by an industrialized food supply which harms society at every level. She will share enhancement techniques which make ti easy for farmers to grow abundant, clean premium crops with enhanced nutrient density.
Bangkok, Thailand (PRWEB) November 16, 2006
Noted health freedom activist Rima E. Laibow, MD will address the 16th Convention of All India Panchayat Parishad in New Delhi next week. The Festival, which runs from November 21-22 in New Delhi, will be opened by the President of All India Panchayat Parishad who also is the Minister in-charge of Food Processing Industries & CODEX. Dr. Laibow will urge farmers to refuse to grow genetically modified crops of any type and to retain the ancient, land-friendly and healthy farming styles which did not damage either the land or the consumer of the foods produced in these ways. At the same time, she will discuss the newest, inexpensive and highly effective technologies which farmers can incorporate into their growing techniques to enhance yield without chemicals and increase nutrient density of food.
The meeting, a festival of farmers and rural community and social organizations, will provide an opportunity for Dr. Laibow to emphasize to farmers that without them, and their clean food, no society can prosper. Farmers, Dr. Laibow believes, hold a key to the health of societies since they can use a combination of ancient and modern techniques to provide clean, abundant and nutrient dense foods to the nations which depend upon them. Standing in stark contrast to this, according to Dr. Laibow, the Medical Director of the Natural Solutions Foundation, is the industrialized food supply supported by international corporate pressure and organizations like Codex Alimentarius.
Codex Alimentarius, the international world food standard setting body run by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) for the United Nations, is, according to Dr. Laibow and the Natural Solutions Foundation a serious threat to the health and well-being of the world since it favors the industrialization of the world’s food supply rather than the enhancement of high nutrient density, low contamination food.
Addressing the farmers and their organizations on the topic of “Farmers Hold Up More Than Half the Sky” Dr. Laibow will put the pesticide, herbicide, drug and antibiotic food supply permitted by Codex for international food trade into sharp contrast with the environmentally, socially and nutritionally healthy food produced by farmers using a carefully honed combination of ancient farming techniques and new, low impact, zero toxicity enhanced agricultural techniques. Some of these techniques are being field tested by the Natural Solutions Foundation in Asia in keeping with the principles and goals of the Foundation’s International Decade of Nutrition designed to use nutrition to show how to eliminate under nutrition and the diseases it causes, crop shortages, epidemic and endemic diseases and the downward spiral of under nutrition, poverty and illness for families, individuals and communities in the developing world.
The World Health Organization defines the preventable diseases of under nutrition as cancers, cardiovascular disease, stroke, diabetes and obesity. Using high nutrient density strategies, enhanced agricultural techniques which do not involve genetic manipulation and modern nutritional disease eradication strategies, the Natural Solutions Foundation will carry out pilot projects with diverse groups in varied settings around the world developing inexpensive and effective strategies for ending hunger and enhancing world health through nutrition and low-tech, high impact natural methods which will be shared with interested communities so they can apply them within the context of their own cultures.
