You know the old adage, “Give a man a fish, feed him for a day, teach him to farm, feed him for life.” Change the word “Fish” to “Farm” and you’ve got a way to solve the hunger problem not only in the US, but in the entire industrialized world. Intensive urban agriculture is that powerful And, in addition to providing food, indoors or out, in-ground or in containers, for people, thus ending food shortages on a family-by-family basis, reclaiming the production of food, again on a family-by-family basis, this simple strategy can end, yes, END, the high calorie under nutrition that is killing us.
You will recall that both the World Health Organization and the Food and Agriculture Organization, in their Joint WHO/FAO Expert Consultation on Diet, Nutrition and the Prevention of Chronic Diseases (2002 : Geneva, Switzerland) noted that the chronic, non communicable, PREVENTABLE [emphasis added – Dr. Rima] diseases of under nutrition are –
Cardiovascular Disease and Stroke
You will also recall that these are the principle killers in the developed nations and, as the developing world moves toward consuming the Standard American Diet, or “SAD”, these PREVENTABLE killers are making their inroads in their lives (and deaths), too.
You will surely recall as well that these PREVENTABLE diseases are also the principle money makers for the pharmaceutical industry, which is behind Codex Alimentarius (the World Food Code), which corrupts and weaponizes food on a world-wide basis to make as many of us as sick as possible for as long as possible with diseases which could have been prevented – and can be cured – by nutrition.
So when a suggestion arose to feed the hungry in the US by recycling food to give to them, that suggestion, while kindly in its intent, literally appalled me. Why not, I thought, teach the hungry to use tiny pieces of land, or easily available containers, to feed themselves, helping our efforts to reclaim the production of food world-wide, and eliminating the high calorie under nutrition that is killing so many of us to the misery of ourselves and our communities and the profit of the illness mongering so-called “health care industry”?
I hope that you will take this idea seriously, apply it to yourselves and teach your neighbors.
Step 1: look around your garden (if you have a year-long growing season where you live) or your home if you do not, and find a place to plant a garden in your yard, your closet (with grow lights), a corner of your apartment, your balcony or wherever.
Step 2: Start thinking about the veggies you would like to eat. Start making a list of them now so you will be ready to plant when the time comes (shortly).
Step 3. Enlist your kids, if you have them. If you home school, make this a project. If you do not home school, make it a project, anyway. It is vitally important now, and will be much more important in the near future, for everyone to know these techniques, and kids naturally take great pleasure in making things grow.
Step 4. Go to www.HealthFreedomUSA.org or www.GlobalHealthFreedom.org and sign up for the Natural Solutions Health Freedom Action eAlerts so that you will be sure to get notification of the new eNewsletter now in planning. Within a short time we’ll be able to send you regular eNewsletters to guide you through the process on your own, get your feedback and share our accumulated wisdom as we reclaim our nutrition and our birthright to healthy, unadulterated food, despite the plans of the disease mongering forces. Once you do that, of course, you will be able to take action to protect your health freedom, too.
Step 5. Talk to your friends, church groups, neighbors, relatives, anyone you know who eats. It is especially important to alert anyone you know who has children so that they can start growing healthy, unadulterated food for them to protect their immune systems and assist their bodies – and brains – to grow to their maximum health and functional potential. Healthy food, as we all know, does all of that and more. But the food that we eat, especially if it is prepared food, meets few (or none) of those characteristics since it is grown in demineralized soil, laden with dangerous chemicals and irradiated, to say nothing of the fact that some 90%+ of our prepared food contains GMO ingredients. Why are we so sick, so young and so long? Because of our food supply.
These Intensive Urban Gardens cost virtually nothing, require little labor and will feed you and your family abundantly, at least as far as vegetable crops go. This will help us all reclaim the production of food while protecting our health.
Oh, yes, there is one more advantage: President Obama and his First Lady, Michelle Obama, have begun planting an organic vegetable garden on the White House lawn. This, at least for this one time, is immensely important to us. Even while the Congress is preparing to pass HR 875 (HR 759) and S 425, disastrous legislation which will plunder the ability of small farmers to stay in the game, leaving ALL food production to the industrialized food chain forces, including GMO and nutrient poor, chemical rich, irradiated food producers, the thrust for clean food production through organic small gardens has been put into our hands by this disingenuous move on the part of the public face of control, the While House.
So let’s use this initiative for all that it is worth and create V2-Gardens. And, while we are talking about it, please visit:
RIGHT NOW, while you are thinking about it, to tell Congress not to pass these horrific bills. I hope you’ll take a moment, too, when you have finished reading this article, to send everyone on your contact list the link I just gave you so that they, too, can help defend their right to clean, unadulterated food and the right to grow it.
Victory Gardens (V-Gardens) were encouraged during WW II so that effort could be diverted from food production and transportation to war efforts. People grew their own food in huge numbers. Today, the victory is over those who would take away our health AND our health freedom. They will not gladly see us healthy and prospering through the ingestion of nutrient-dense food. But that is exactly what these gardens will allow. This is the second time in modern American history that it is necessary to route the forces we are struggling against through ensuring our nutrition. Therefore, the Natural Solutions Foundation, always the leader in health and freedom protection, urges V2 Gardens to protect our freedoms and our health at the same time.
Stay tuned for the launch issue of the Natural Solutions Foundation’s “Freedom Food eNewsletter: V2 Gardens for Health and Freedom“. Happy gardening.
Food is astonishingly important both as a human necessity and as a weapon – history shows us that over and over again. The Natural Solutions Foundation, www.GlobalHealthFreedom.org, of which I am the Medical Director, is deeply concerned with the weaponization and contamination of food on a global basis.
Codex Alimentarius, the UN’s “Food Code” sets standards and guidelines for everything that goes into the mouths of the world’s population (voluntary as the Codex texts are, they are backed up the by WTO unless a country follows several very specific procedure which our Foundation has determined exist and has promulgated to these countries through our work at Codex meetings in in their home countries).
Tragically, these standards and guidelines are set at the request and wishes of the US Government, the “Big Dog” at Codex. Armed with the wishes of the multinational corporations, the US makes sure, through its might and economic weight, that Codex is run for the benefit if the “Bigs”, Big Pharma, Big Agribiz, Big Chema, Big Biotechna and Big Medical.
In fact, the US comes to the Codex meetings around the world with representatives of these industries on its delegation, unlike virtually any other country in the world.
So the quality of food is rapidly being degraded world wide.
Nowhere is this more true than in the US where the nutritive value of food is decreasing with the intensification of industrial food production (indeed, even Avian Flu outbreaks have been laid squarely at industrial food production of poultry AND VACCINATION WITH AVIAN VACCINES WHICH PRECIPITATE THE DISEASE IN VACCINATED BIRDS).
At the same time, Codex permits contamination of food through unlimited irradiation, permitted dangerous chemicals at high levels, hormones and dangerous drugs like antibiotics and hormones permitted in the rearing or animals, biotech crops and animals, degradation of “organic” standards and a host of other affronts to ALL food consumed by humans is being met by the introduction of laws like the devastatingly dangerous HR 875 (HR 759)and S 425 in the US. Similar laws, to which the US statues “HARMonize”, have been adopted in Europe and elsewhere.
It is useful to note that Codex was created on the inspiration of Convicted WWII War Criminal Fritz ter Meer, the head of Germany’s IG Farben during that war, and Beyer Pharmaceutical head before – and after – the war. More information on the pharmaceutical industry’s attempt -so far lethally successful – to degrade food to the point that it will not support health and therefore will support illness very well, is available in our video “Nutricide”, available under the video section of our websites, www.GlobalHealthFreedom.org and www.HealthFreedomUSA.org.
To remedy this situation, it is absolutely necessary to reclaim the production of food. There is, it seems to me, little point to wasting the opportunity to feed hungry Americans by allowing the food they eat to consist of the same deadly mix of irradiated biotech food, both demineralized and filled with dangerous chemicals, of which the Standard American Diet, aptly called “SAD” for short, consists.
The Natural Solutions Foundation has created a the Valley of the Moon Eco Demonstration Project in the temperate, bountiful and magnificent Highlands of Panama to teach farmers how to grow without chemicals. More information on this project is available at www.NaturalSolutionsFoundation.org. But we are also focused on the need to grow our own food, something that HR 875 (HR 759) and S 425 could forbid.
On a 4×4 patch of ground, or set of pots, it is possible to create an outdoor – or indoor – garden which can grow enough food for a family of four with nearly no expense and at minimal effort.
Why not teach the hungry to grow clean, unadulterated, safe and nourishing food, not give them recycled junk, whether it is considered “junk food” or not?
In the ancient wisdom of giving a man a fish, or teaching him to fish, why not teach him to garden and feed his family, his friends and himself?
If you believe in a vegetarian diet, you would thus be teaching people to find the means to achieve and sustain it. If you do not, you are giving people the means to acheive and sustain a healthy crop portion of their diet. Those whose physical situations allows them to grow healthy chickens can obtain inexpensive protein from them – both meat and eggs.
This, it seems to me, is the answer to the problem in the US and elsewhere.
The Natural Solutions Foundation will be teaching Intensive Urban Agriculture at its Panama Center and is also instituting a special e-newsletter to assist people in doing just that: taking back the control and quality of their own food supply.
People interested in this option can go to www.GlobalHealthFreedom.org or www.HealthFreedomUSA.org in order to sign up for the free, secure Health Freedom Action eAlerts where they will be able to join in the fight to protect our health freedom AND sign up [shortly] for our new e-Newsletter.
The initiative to feed the US is a good one. Why not use it as the opportunity to create a healthy food supply under the control of each and every household or person?
Yours in health and freedom,
