BIOLOGICAL AND SOCIAL DECLINE OF MODERN SOCIETY
"Know the body that houses your spirit"
We are ruled by Cosmic, Planetary and man made laws.
Very few people are aware of the Cosmic and Planetary laws.
Within modern society there is a general confusion about bodily needs, how and what we should eat to stay happy and healthy. Modern nutritional science tries to explain human needs through the process of analyzing without considering the Planetary laws to which we are all submitted. Medical schools train professionals to treat diseases instead of studying their causes. Governmental health departments, the World Health Organization and other official health departments generally get their information and are influenced by the multinational food processing industries. The information that comes to us is in the end all ruled by economic interests.
Family members who seek information about what to eat, to stay healthy and protect their children get their information from special trained nutritionists who have no knowledge of existing Planetary laws. At the same time, due to the ever increasing rate of degenerative diseases, many people turn their attention to alternative medicine and health related information, and advise without knowledge or understanding of Planetary laws. People keep going around in vicious circles receiving opposing information.
Something seems to be wrong within modern society. If we take into consideration the number of people with all kind of diseases in the USA
The following figures gave back in 1985 a statistical profile
of the biological and social decline of modern society, as represented by the
United States. They are derived from reports of the American Heart Association,
the American Cancer Society, and other national medical and public health organizations.
The US population is about 225 million.
The example outlined below represents many of the industrialized countries in the world.
The following figures are from the USA population which is about 225 million.
* Cardiovascular Disease;
Heart attacks, stroke, and other circulatory disorders are the primary cause of death, taking 1 in every 2 lives. Each year about 1.5 million Americans have a heart attack, and 550.000 of them will die. Surgically, 1.6 million circulatory operations and procedures are performed each year in the USA., including 159.000 bypass grafts, 177.000 pacemakers, and 414,000 cardiac catherizations. Thirty seven million people have high blood pressure.
The second leading cause of death in modern society, cancer claims 444,000 Americans each year. At the turn of the century, the cancer rate was about 1 in 25 persons. By 1950 it had risen to about 1 in 8, and today it will affect about 1 in every 3 Americans. Breast cancer will develop in 1 of every 11 women. About 1.5 million biopsies are performed each year.
About 25 percent of all women over 60 will break a bone, due primarily to the degenerative thinning of the bones, which make them more susceptible to fracture. Older men are also affected.
Fifty million Americans (about 1 in 4 are affected by arthritis. This includes 7.3 million crippling cases, mostly rheumatoid arthritis. Osteoarthritis, or degenerative joint disease, affects 97 percent of all people over 60. About 250,000 children also suffer from some form of this disease.
* Mental illness;
At any given time, 29 million Americans-nearly 1 in 5 adults-suffer psychiatric disorders ranging from mildly disabling anxiety to severe schizophrenia. About 5 million of these people seek medical treatment every 6 months.
* Alzheimer disease;
This degenerative disease of the brain cells affects as estimated 1 million persons, usually between the ages of 40 and 70. There is no current medical treatment.
Eleven million Americans currently have diabetes, about 1 in 20.
* Birth defects;
About thirteen million Americans have birth defects.
About two million Americans have epilepsy, about 1 in 100.
* Parkinson's disease;
About 1.5 million Americans have disorder, about 1 in 150.
* Multiple Sclerosis;
About half a million Americans have this disorder, about 1 in 450.
* Reproductive disorders;
One out of every 5 American couples is infertile. Forty percent of women have fibroid tumors. Annually there are about 4.2 million operations on female genital organs, including about 700,000 hysterectomies, so that at least half of the women over 60 have had their wombs or ovaries removed.
In 1981, 25.6 million medical operations were performed, a 62 percent increase over the previous decade.
The Chance of dietary patterns that has occurred includes the following characteristics:
1) Loss of Principal Food:
Whole cereal grains, the traditional Staff of Life in all precious civilizations, have rapidly declined as the principal food in proportion to other categories of foods. This includes the refinement of whole grains into polished grains as well as mass production of refined flours.
AVOID REFINED FLOUR PRODUCTS-TO KEEP YOUR IMMUNIY INTACT!
As an example;
Be aware of the nutrients lost in refining wheat flour.
When whole wheat flour is milled into white flour , much of the germ (embryo), bran, and surface endosperm are removed. As a result, the flour loses most of its energy and vitality as well as its natural oils and nutrients. Though a few of the vitamins and minerals are returned in enriching, the resulting quality is not the same.
This table below shows the typical loss of nutrients in producing white flour
|Thiamimine (B1)||77.1||Riboflavin (B2)||80.0|
|Pantothenic acid||50.0||Vitamin E||86.3|
(Source: Henry A. Schroeder, "Losses of Vitamins and Trace
Minerals Resulting from Processing and Preservation of Foods," American Journal
of Clinical Nutrition, 1971)
2) Increased consumption of animal-quality food:
Meat, poultry, egg, and dairy food intake has substantially risen, replacing whole grains, noodles, pasta, flour, and other grain products as the center of the modern meal. The quality of animal foods, moreover, has deteriorated as a result of the artificially quality of the feed given to animals and the processing of animal foods, including the use of hormones, chemicals, and other synthetic ingredients.
3) Increased consumption of sugar and sugar-treated products:
White sugar, brown sugar, molasses, dextrose, and other refined sweeteners have been consumed in record amounts, incorporated into many cooked, canned, and bottled foods, including confections of soft drinks, together with artificial processed sweeteners, either chemically synthesized such as saccharin, aspartame, and nutrasweet or imported from totally different climatic regions.
4) Change in vegetable consumption:
The modern era has given rise to the mass production of certain limited vegetables such as potato and tomato as the daily use of other kinds of vegetable has declined. Widespread adoption of chemical farming, as well as canning, freezing, and artificial preservation techniques to accommodate long time storage and distant transport, have resulted in deterioration in the quality of most vegetables.
(today, in the year 2000 we can add genetic engineered food items)
5) Change in fruit consumption:
Wild and naturally cultivated fruits have been replaced by uniform, hybrid species that have been chemically cultivated and sprayed.
6) Change in legume use:
Traditionally, human beings have received most of their protein from beans and bean products in combination with grains and vegetables. However, today, beans and legumes are raised principally for feeding livestock rather than utilized fro direct human consumption.
7) Emergence of nonessential foods:
The modern supermarket, drive in restaurants, and vending machines have given rise to the "junk food" meal. Wholesome foods such grains, vegetables, have disappeared from many daily menus altogether in favor of quick, ready-made foods, softdrinks, candy bars, ice cream, coffee, and other excessively fatty, oily, or spicy foods and beverages that provides a burst of energy or stimulate the senses but provide little nutrition.
8) Change in salt quality:
In recent decades naturally unrefined sea salt has been replaced with artificially refined salt from which nearly all the mineral compounds other than sodium chloride and trace minerals have been removed. As a result of this change, together with the lack of other natural foods including whole grains and vegetables which also supply minerals, a deficiency in mineral balance is now prevalent.
9) Change in farming practices: Since the Neolithic Era, humanity has cultivated the soil with natural, organic methods of farming. With the rise of mechanical agriculture, chemical fertilizers, pesticides, and other sprays, the quality of food crops as well as livestock products has dramatically altered during the last century.
10) Rise of vitamin consumption: To furnish some of the nutrients removed from refined grain, white flour, and table salt, as well those lacking in chemically grown fruits and vegetables, the modern food industry has created synthetic vitamins, and minerals, and other food supplements. In the past, human beings received all of these items as part of a balanced whole foods diet.
Nutritionally, the changes in modern dietary patterns can further be summarized as follows:
A) A drastic increase of simple carbohydrates such as those found in sugar, fruit, milk and other dairy products and a decrease of complex carbohydrate intake as found in whole grains, beans, and their products.
B) A drastic increase of animal protein from source such meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy food and a decrease of vegetable protein such as from whole grains, beans, and their products.
C) A drastic increase of saturated fats represented mainly by various animal quality foods and decrease of unsaturated fats represented mainly by vegetable-quality oils.
D) A drastic increase of nonfibrous products such as various foods of fatty, greasy, oily, creamy, or floury substances and a decrease of fiber foods such as whole grains, beans and fresh vegetables.
E) A drastic increase of synthetic chemicals in the form of fertilizers, insecticides, preservatives, emulsifiers, stabilizers, and artificial colorings and decrease of natural quality including natural textures, colors, tastes, and odors.
F) A drastic increase of artificial additives such as vitamins, minerals, hormones, and other supplements as seen in the rise of the vitamin industry and decrease of whole foods containing these nutrients as natural organic substances.

The study of the Planetary laws.
The Keys to maintain our health
* The 5 different climatic zones on Earth
* The incoming/outgoing electromagnetic energy
* The 1:7 ratio in nature (includes the proportions within our daily food supply)
1) The 5 different climatic zones on Earth
We can divide the Earth into 5 different climatic zones (polar-cold-moderate-subtropical and tropical) In each zone the growth and structure of the vegetable kingdom is different. In colder zones the plant structure is more compact and the leaves are smaller, in warmer climates the structure is bigger. (cold contracts and heat expands) We can therefore observe that plants continuously adjust to their environment.
In warmer climates we consume more citrus fruits such as oranges.
When we eat or drink orange juice it has a cooling effect on our organism. Our blood becomes thinner and our circulation slows down. In this way we cool our body temperature which compensates or makes balance with the heat outside. We are more attracted to these fruits in the summer time and less when the season changes and the weather becomes colder.
When we keep consuming these fruits during the autumn or winter months our bodies cool down so we increase the temperature in our homes to make balance again. When we go outside, and our bodies adjust by trying to eliminate this excess liquid, or fruit sugar through sneezing or by catching a cold blaming it on some kind of virus instead of reflecting on our habits.
2) Incoming/outgoing electromagnetic energy
The incoming electromagnetic energy is centripetal, generated by the movement of planets, solar systems and galaxies. The outgoing centrifugal energy however, is caused by Earth's rotation on its axis, being strongest on the tropics and the weakest on the poles. This is why space shuttles are launched from Florida (US) where Earth's centrifugal energy is more powerful. The incoming energies are stronger in the polar regions and weaker in the tropical region.
Incoming energy stronger on the poles
Outgoing energy stronger on the tropical regions
"The Different 1:7 Ratios in Nature"
Earth's incoming electromagnetic energy is about seven times stronger than the outgoing one. (oscillating between 10:1 and 5:1) We can clearly perceive this pattern in the ocean waves, where the length of the waves is about 7 times its height. The proportion between the head and the rest of the body in the human being is likewise 1:7, and you will find the same ratio within the grain and our galaxy.
Chakras and the Meridians
The energies coming into the north and south poles collide to form our chakras. This energy is then distributed throughout our whole body via our energy channels or meridians. The incoming energies produces the contraction, the outgoing energies produces the expansion of our cells and organs. This is why it is important that we are careful in the selection of our daily food in order to keep these energy lines open, unblocked and flexible. This has a direct relationship to how we feel physically, how we think, act and on our spiritual understanding.
1:7 Ratio between minerals, proteins, carbohydrates, water and air-"your Key!"
This 1:7 ratio is an important key to maintain our flexibility, immunity, and health. If we take time to study, observe and practice this key we are on our way to maintain or achieve good health.
1:7 ratio between minerals, proteins, carbohydrates, water and air
Since minerals are the most condensed form of food one should take these in very small quantities. Furthermore one should consume 7 times as much proteins, 7 times more carbohydrates than proteins, 7 times more water than carbohydrates, and we breath in 7 times more air than the water we drink.
Mother's milk and unrefined whole grains contains this same ratio. This is why whole grains should be the basis of our daily intake. Nature provides us with the necessary ingredients to maintain our health and balance.
Examples of food missing this balance, creating imbalance;
Meat minerals 0.7 proteins 17.9 carbohydrates 0
Eggs minerals 1 proteins 12.9 carbohydrates 0
Potatoes minerals 0.9 proteins 2.1 carbohydrates 17.1
It is therefore when we eat a lot of meat, eggs or other animal food we are attracted to a lot of sweets (carbohydrates) liquid and breath more.
The ratio of physical food to mental food is left for each person's individual discovery; it is not 1:7. On the contrary, the proportion is inverse; the less physical food we eat, the more mental , higher spiritual vibration we receive.
HAVE YOU EVER BEEN IN A SLAUGHTERHOUSE?
"If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be vegetarian."
Paul and Linda McCartney, 1996
"You have just dined, and however scrupulously the slaughterhouse
is concealed in the graceful distance of miles, there is complicity."
Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1870
