Dyslexia as a Tool for Empowerment

You carry in your body the cell level memory of your life’s moments or memories all the way back to when your body was 2 completely physically two different cells in mom and dad.

Everything those two cells experienced and all the cells that have birthed after they met are imprinted with every “learning moment” of your entire life. And every moment awake, asleep, of even knocked out is a learning moment to the intelligence that orchestrates the trillions of things going on on all levels of body level awareness.

The following is a comment I made to a friends post after he made a funny about dyslexia which is a form of cellular memory being acted out.

I decided to repost if here as so few have been awakened in this area so that those who recognize in themselves any of what I wrote might be encouraged and motivated to pursue more insights and experiences of mastering cellular memory and using it for their own highest good and even the good of others….

Dyslexia is in most cases a stress induced blind spot in nerve and muscle circuits.

image

Every moment of our lives is a learning moment.

Everything our cellular memory (which is every entire bodily position including the eyes, we are in especially during experiences of distress or pain) stores how we feel and our thoughts about our perceptions.

image

Negative emotions especially intense or chronic ones, become areas of “if it looks like, sounds like, smells like, taste like, feels like…. It must be like (something we didn’t like in the past) and we don’t won’t to feel that way again so what did we do in the that perhaps far distant past learning moment?

In moments of extreme negative stress we tend to check out perceptually and even functionally on being fully conscious and responsible or responsive functionally in that area.

Behavioral Barometer

Now imagine during the process of learning each letter of the alphabet a kid is not ready to learn alphabets but is a math wiz at that age but is forced to try to do alphabets.

What do you think will be happening from those days forward when he tries to read a paragraph of text and recall what it means from within his inner cloud of feeling “checked out emotionally or any number of emotions that come online as the muscles of each eye strain to focus on what each letter sounds like, looks like, feels like? BBBBAAAMMMM instant dyslexia.

These symptoms can also affect every other area of a person’s life including athletic and relationship performance or attunement. I was the person I just described. In the midst of discovering how to regenerate nerves, joints and cartilage destroyed in a hit n run almost life ending car vs motorcycle event back in my 20’s I stumbled upon a school here in CA that specialized in the testing, identification and correction of dyslexias.

After reading one of their brochures and recognizing I had all the symptoms they described I opted to sit in on one of their demo nights and realized the work they did was an important part of my path to both being finally free of the influence of a shadowy effect of my childhood that haunted me decade after decade and learning more about triggering the body’s powers of regeneration.

muscle testing chart

Instead of becoming a private one on one client on the side of theirs I through every last penny I had without an afterthought to become a trainer / facilitator of their insights, processes and seminars.

The certification included hands on classroom testing, identifying and “defusion” of every possible area of emotion induced blind spots that were the source of a pervasive symptom map of my dyslexias.

This transformed my life in ways I will never be able to fully articulate. I set up a private practice and seminar – facilitator training business that I ran for years.

I totally enjoyed witnessing and experiencing tons of others discover how they made themselves dyslexic and how to permanently and painlessly defuse it. And I used those experiences and insights to build a bridge to insights that allowed me to not only restore all the body parts the supposedly the best doctors on the planet claimed were not naturally salvageable, but have gone on to do things I never dreamed I could even in my 50’s that I couldn’t do in my 20’s physically, mentally and emotionally.

Miracles are everywhere and within us.

We’ve mostly been crippled out of fear, ignorance and generational curses.

All of which can been used as fodder for growth.

It’s in our DNA and your sense of self empowerment is just beyond your body level blind spots or fears.

Illuminating The Way

My Blueprint to Blogging for Profits

How I Discovered Blogging

I think therefore I blog

I began blogging in November 2005 as a means to share about my transition from cycling to becoming a barefoot ultra distance runner and fruitarian and to market the internet business I owned at the time.

search engine spider defined

Search sites like Google and Bing send out “Search Spiders” that crawl across the pages of web pages they find. These look for topics and keywords and send them back to their source to be “indexed” so future searches via their search tools brings up your site and others similar.

pay per click illustration

Search Engines also make money via ads along the periphery of the search pages and some pay search companies “Per click fees” to have their sites appear at the top of a given search enquiry.

That’s about all I knew about blogging at that time.

I show my blogging students how to make their blogs show up on top of those highly paid large corporations search listings without paying the per click fee. This boost the number of people finding your blog post and discovering the value you share and offer.

As I continued to post to my free amatuer blog and journeyed into the Blogging World I came to realize that blogs, while certainly found by search engine traffic, are much more than a mere place on the internet to share ones views.

Blogs are an invitation the “Living Room of Your Mind” – a ways to document topics you’re passionate about that you want available to yourself and others over time like your own personal library of your life and the topics you hold dear.

Blogs influence, empower, encourage and feed visitors.

Blogs are communication devices, educational resources and sources of entertainment. They connect people, spread ideas, foster friendships, illuminate new ways of thinking, feeling and behaving.

Blogs can be almost anything you want them to be, but what I came to experience as a result of blogging, is A New Way of Life.

mobile blogging

Most don’t realize it but Blogging can be done from either a PC, Laptop or a Smart Phone from anywhere that you can access the Internet. You can even be running across the USA and blog along the way or be on a beach in some foreign country chilling and take a couple minutes to post text, videos or pictures that you feel inspired to post in the moment.

Every day I indulge in a what most would view as a hobby and communicate with like-minded individuals, and best of all, I get paid to do it. How do I get paid? I monetized my blog.

raining money

monitizing your blog

Monetization simply means implementing methods of making money from the content you produce on your blog. This process can occur in many ways – and can evolve over time as new features and technologies emerge to make one’s post more viral and rank higher in search engine searches and more and more companies that we do business with realize that they can bring far more traffic and business to their primary sites through legions of bloggers who are actively growing their audiences vs spending thousands or even millions on tv ads or other forms of web advertising.

What’s important is that the opportunity still exists today to jump on board the blogging bandwagon and get paid for writing about what you love.

Blogging empowers individuals with a tool that generates income and provides an outlet to communicate with and effect the rest of the world. For many people, starting a blog has completely changed how they live their lives – and for the better.

networked

Down the side of this post you can find examples of some of the portals that produce cash for me. It’s a growing income stream that means day by day, week my week and month by month that’s less I need earn from trading my time for money and more time I reclaim to assist you in your journey and free myself to go explore more to bring back to you.

 

Blogging As a Business, Not a Job – What’s that mean?

best ways to predict the future

The purpose of a business is to leverage a persons time to produce a lot more income in comparison to a job where we are paid linearly by the hour or via a set salary. Even performance based wages like commission sales jobs only pay you based on how much of your time you sell and you earn nothing if take time off. Businesses – especially online businesses that have a global audience as blogging easily becomes produce income based on traffic or visits and in some cases views 24-7-365 for as long as your blog is on the Internet no matter whether you’re sleeping, running, working out, laying on a beach or hanging with the kids. It has no staff to hire or pay and can be done naked or clothed.

Think about this too…

worthless college degree

Blogging allows us to share topics and interest that they don’t even teach in college making what we share valuable as we through our life experience and what we have taken from our self education is unique and worth far more over time. Each of us is our own unique collection of lessons learned from facing challenges along the way. Each of us has a passion that we express in our own unique way that no one else has the flavor of but perhaps relates as they drink from the same fountain that wells up inside them?

When I say I am paid to blog, I don’t mean I am a paid writer.

Professional blogging to me is not about looking for freelance writing gigs, it’s about building a business, an online asset, and leveraging that asset for cash-flow now, and long-term value in the future.

Blogging doesn’t need to be a full-time occupation to produce more than a full time income.

Anyone can earn a consistent $10,000 USD to $30,000 USD per month from a blog business if they take the time to learn how to set up one properly and then become consistent over time of adding content or post that your kind of crowd would appreciate and look forward to consuming.

All I one needs to do to keep a blog working is write a post on something your audience is likely to find interesting, inspiring, controversial or useful every couple to 3 days – sometimes just once a week.

I won’t lie to you, it’s not easy to build a large following, but there is a process you can follow. You do have to post consistently and, most importantly, have the right mental fortitude and attitude to get you there.

Becoming a Blogger is as simple as using a site like this to teach and guide you through everything you could need to know to set up shop and learn a new profession over time.

The Spirit of All Things

In my lifelong exploration of what is eternal, universal and immortal about what both permeates and transcends this world, I’ve come to settle into the reality that there is definitely an invisible presence, that is the spirit of all things, and we are either identifying with that and reaping the benefit or not.
Spirit Body
In another season of life I came back from a N.D.E. with the awareness of an invisible presence as more of an energy than an entity and a knowing that perfection exists within that energy and that we are an extension of it and can experience more of our truest nature by tuning into who we really are and out of who we are not, as opposed to an entity who dishes out favorable outcomes based on its own apparently limited perceptual choosing.

 

An image of a nice zoom into the light background

I think the reason that religion doesn’t set well with us is that abusive men have used their perception of the existence of this presence and used their ability to project from that power abusively to spread mass hypnosis for the purpose of deceiving, manipulating and to Lording over other others.

German Chancellor Adolf Hitler gestures during a speech in May 1937 at an unknown location in Germany.  As one of the most notorious tyrants in world history,  Hitler helped form the Nazi Party in 1919.  He became the dictator of Germany in 1933 and launched the holocaust as a "final solution" to the "Jewish problem" as well as gypsies and homosexuals.   In 1939, he invaded Poland and began World War II which ravaged Europe. The Fuhrer of the Third Reich committed suicide on April 30, 1945 with his mistress, Eva Braun.  Germany surrendered on May 7, 1945.   (AP Photo)

The real point of power is within each of us – our own perceptions, but some of it is due to the perception of others we began to install as babies and toddlers on up through the indoctrination channels we each and collectively were brought up within.
god within
We are all connected somewhat in mind, and affected by the collective.
It was the development of the ego through language that began the dimming of our true identity and connection to something universal, immortal and infinite in capacity. 
Feed the soul
It is in our quest to transcend the views and beliefs of the ego that finally allow us to reawaken to a much larger and powerful sense of self and our collective connectedness.
We’ve begun to reawaken in mass to the wholesale theft of these noble and honorable truths and that is the beginnings of the full birth of an era of humans that are truly kind (Man – Kind)
We are not helpless. We are the source of both what has been wrong about the history and present of humanity and the what is and can be right about the role we can play in birthing a heaven right here on Earth.
Religions and Politics have turned into Santa Claus Gods whose power is easily refuted.
santa claus god
We have a lot of power to affect change by changing our own perceptions.
Collectively, we will get there, inevitably…. One by One….

Stuck in Traffic

I see post on FaceBook of friends and family frustrated and angry because they are “Stuck in Traffic” – When I traverse the region I live in known as “The Inland Empire” or Corona California, I many times run past blocks of people “Stuck in Traffic” even far away from the main freeway “The 91 or the 15” on surface streets. I feel like a free animal running past others of my species that are in cages whose doors are unlocked. The real lock is just a construct of their minds.
This is my response to one such post about “Being stuck in traffic”
 
But remember… You are traffic! I stopped hating myself and got rid of the car and decided to just run or ride my bike where ever I want to go.
My wife and kids either walk, ride bikes, hitch rides or use Uber or Lyft.
If we need to get someplace really far or haul something big and awkward I call Enterprise Rent a Car or truck – they deliver to my house and even pick it up when I’m done.
Self driving cars will go away in the next 15-20 yrs or less. Google, Tessla, Apple and all the tradional car makers are dumping billions into making self driving autonomous cars that you can summon to your location via an app on your phone within minutes where ever you are. They aim to get the cost down to about 6 cents a mile. The average car today cost about 60.8 cents per mile when you include in gas, insurance, maintanence, support systems like tax subsidies. It won’t make sense to buy one anymore. This will uncluttered driveways, garages, parking, streets and highways. By then most people will work from home and or be self employed also. Feel the pull of the future and pursue it instead of being stuck in the past…
I save all that money already and use the difference to buy myself lots of organic fruits, greens and veggies and the best running atire available and put the rest in savings.
At 58 it also gives me reason and the means to be fitter than I was in my 20’s.
It’s a shift in thinking and requires a willingness to buck the norm and not care what naysayers might say or think. I encounter people almost daily who express envy of the way I conduct my life.
The good news is anyone can do this… And over time more and more will.
Create a better world instead of just wishing for one…

Reclaiming Your Personal Power

A friend of mine posted the following image on FaceBook and as I pondered its message and the implications of that message I saw another view I’d like to share.
 
Anyone even a little bit awake realizes that the upper echelon of the money game plays by a different set of rules and laws than the rest of us.
This is also why we must disagree in regard to playing the money game only the way we’ve been indoctrinated to do so.
Meaning we’ve been trained to trade time for money and to allow others to decide how much we can have in metered and watered down amounts.
 
We’ve been led to believe the owners of companies are the ones who have the only ideas that are valuable enough to motivate others to exchange money for.
That we are only good enough to be workers for the smart, bold and creative few. That’s all a lie.
We can be all of that and more. We can be self employed and not even need capital, take huge risk or have traditional employees or buildings or even know how to sell or any of the crap associate with the old ideas of “owning or operating a business”.
 
Just as growing your own food is like printing money – meaning instead of selling so much of your life for money to buy food cut out many layers you’re paying for by growing at least some of your own if not all of you see and understand the value of doing so. You save both money and life. No one grows a garden or orchard and says it was draining. If anything it’s the opposite – satisfying and fulfilling.
….so is owning your own creativity, boldness, and having a connection to the Internet via phone or PC.
 
 
You can print your own money. But you’ve got to do it within the boundaries of what The Matrix has already deemed as legal.
That’s where Affilliate Marketing, Network Marketing, Blogging and other electronic technologies are the “Bolt Cutters for the Human Spirit” –
 
These types of self employment – anywhere you can get access to the Internet type business models can leverage your time to produce income in quantities that are far greater than you alone can produce by selling your time at a traditional job by offering your automatable and semi automatable systems that help others find and get or get access to information and resources they seek over the web. They can create residual or reoccurring income by offering subscriptions or memberships to your sites offering over time just like a gym membership, any other monthly bill you pay that creates residual or predictable income for the supplier of the services or products you want on glowing access to. These systems have all this built into them.
I’ve made it my business to find and make available mobile business packages that can be started for free or for pennies per day and leveraged to produce 10’s, even 100’s of thousands per month on tiny investments of cash and time with all training and support supplied.
Explore and ponder….Then Do….

Were we really born to run?

Based on human design from the examination of our hands, tongue, teeth, jaw design, digestive tract, nutrient needs, we are all born Fruitarians. 

 
Our upright postural development and the development of the gluteus muscle had to be and adaption motivated by generation of us needing to run across open expanses of grasslands to get to the next fruit grove for more food. This would have also led to our development of skin based sweat glands and relative hairlessness compared to other primates. 

As the distances between groves increased over the millinia, so did the development of our legs and hips. Our need for simple to digest carbohydrates to fuel these resupply missions worked well until we began to find too little fruits. This led to trying to find other sources of calories. After realizing we couldn’t survive on the harder fiberred plant life we probably came upon another creatures abandoned kill and out of desparation ate some of it. Some would have gotten sick and even died and some would have survived. 

Over time natural forest fires would have left opportunities to come upon the burned bodies of creatures caught in the fire and upon consuming some of these and realizing the lack of dramatic illness and death within hours afterwards humans began to seek how they could carry and even make fire to sanitize a dangerous source of survival food. 

As humans came to eat more flesh and fewer easy to digest fruits our glucose levels dropped as a new normal and the body responded by reducing brain function as the brain runs exclusively on glucose. 

Our endurance dropped and we no longer found joy in the run. It became a chore or a sprint to get close enough to wild animals to throw a spear or chase it into a trap. 

This was the beginning of humanity going beyond its truest humanity.

This loss of rememberance of our optimal foods and what it feels like to run far with optimal levels of blood glucose has led to our over reliance upon mechanical substitutes for legs, lungs and hearts and even sweating. Now we shuffle from chair to chair and wonder why life is so boring? Why we age so fast? Why nothing we eat seems to satisfy us and not questioning all the hype and marketing of dead food like things or the species appropriateness of a given food? In the running domain we get sold all kinds of beliefs about how fragile and weak and defective our feet are and how we need special pills, potions and powders to run far and fast. 

We still have these innate abilities to run far, thrive on a fruit centered diet, power up the whole brain instead of mainly the small logic and fear based centers. 

The key is decide to question all that you have been told and sold and begin to peel back all that to reveal the innate truths that have been there all along and give them what they need to thrive again. 

Lose the shoes…. Get to know your soles again.  Lose the cooked broken foods that camouflage your truest appetite. Discover the satiation of filling up on raw, ripe, living, high vitality fruits, greens and veggies. 

   
 Power up! 

How do I fund a lifestyle that gives me to the time to run and eat real foods?

What is a Natural Human Diet?

When you come upon road kill, do you feel compelled to stop and sniff it and perhaps snack on it? Does the sight of a dead animal make you salivate? Do you daydream about killing cows with your bare hands and eating them raw? If you answered no to these questions, congratulations—like it or not, you’re an innate fruitarian.

According to the most cutting edge biologists, anthropologists and researchers who study our anatomy, and that of humans of the past, humans are Fruitarian who are not well suited to eating meat or the harder fibered plants. It’s also being realized that dehydrating and cooking renders foods not intended for human consumption into forms that are not long term optimal for human health also.

Humans lack both the physical characteristics of carnivores and the instinct that drives them to kill animals and devour their raw carcasses and no animal in nature induces a “fever” into it’s food to render it edible. Therefore all cooked foods contribute some level of toxicity to the body’s systems responsible for inner cleanliness and the prevention of toxins harming us.

 Human Physiology

human physiology

Although many humans choose to eat a wide variety of plant and animal foods, earning us the dubious title of “omnivore,” we’re anatomically herbivorous.

Teeth, Jaws, and Nails

Humans have short, soft fingernails and pathetically small “canine” teeth. In contrast, carnivores all have sharp claws and large canine teeth that are capable of tearing flesh.

Teeth comparison

Carnivores’ jaws move only up and down, requiring them to tear chunks of flesh from their prey and swallow them whole. Humans and other primates can move their jaws up and down and from side to side, allowing them to grind up fruit and vegetables with their back teeth. Like other plant eater’s teeth, humans’ back molars are flat for grinding fibrous plant foods. Carnivores lack these flat molars.

Dr. Richard Leakey, a renowned anthropologist, summarizes, “You can’t tear flesh by hand, you can’t tear hide by hand. Our anterior teeth are not suited for tearing flesh or hide. We don’t have large canine teeth, and we wouldn’t have been able to deal with food sources that require those large canines.”

raw meat eating

When we take foods not suited for natural human consumption and cook them we may be releasing some of those foods nutrients for utilization but are also breaking the biochemical language of some of those nutrients rendering them as more or less inorganically recognizable chemicals to our body’s innate intelligence that orchestrates digestion and distribution of what we eat.  When this happens the body must go find within itself the missing “letters of the alphabet” that seem to be missing from the chemical sentences the organic biochemistry of the food is missing to make sense of  where the materials can be used. This process over time causes us deficiencies in various micro and even large molecule nutrients that result in the gradual and sometimes sudden weakening and or shut down of bodily systems and the appearance of symptoms of which Western Medicine loves to misdiagnose, label and exploit for long term profit.

Stomach Acidity

Carnivores swallow their food whole, relying on their extremely acidic stomach juices to break down flesh and kill the dangerous bacteria in meat that would otherwise sicken or kill them. Our stomach acids are much weaker in comparison because strong acids aren’t needed to digest pre-chewed fruits and vegetables. Our natural foods are almost self digesting when introduced to our digestive tracts.

Intestinal Length

digestive tracts

Carnivores have short intestinal tracts and colons that allow meat to pass through the animal relatively quickly, before it can rot and cause illness. Humans’ intestinal tracts are much longer than those of carnivores of comparable size. Longer intestines allow the body more time to break down fiber and absorb the nutrients from plant-based foods, but they make it dangerous for humans to eat meat. The bacteria in meat have extra time to multiply during the long trip through the digestive system, increasing the risk of food poisoning. Meat actually begins to rot while it makes its way through human intestines, which increases the risk of colon cancer.

Read author John Robbins’ discussion of the anatomical differences between humans and carnivores or review Dr. Milton Mills’ entire article on the topic to learn more.

Human Psychology

Humans also lack the instinct that drives carnivores to kill animals and devour their raw carcasses. While carnivores take pleasure in killing animals and eating their raw flesh, any human who killed an animal with his or her bare hands and ate the raw corpse would be considered deranged. Carnivorous animals are excited by the scent of blood and the thrill of the chase. Most humans, on the other hand, are revolted by the sight of blood, intestines, and raw flesh and cannot tolerate hearing the screams of animals being ripped apart and killed. The bloody reality of eating animals is innately repulsive to us, another indication that we weren’t designed to eat meat. Where as when our nose catches the scent of tree ripened fruits we instantly begin to salivate and look around for where it is.

If We Were Meant to Eat Meat, Why Is It Killing Us?

 

Carnivorous animals in the wild virtually never suffer from heart disease, cancer, diabetes, strokes, or obesity, ailments that are caused in humans in large part by the consumption of the saturated fat and cholesterol found in meat.

Fat and Cholesterol

Studies have shown that even when fed 200 times the amount of animal fat and cholesterol that the average human consumes each day, carnivores do not develop the hardening of the arteries that leads to heart disease and strokes in humans.

Human bodies, on the other hand, weren’t designed to process animal flesh, so all the excess fat and cholesterol from a meat-based diet makes us sick. Heart disease, for example, is the number one killer in the U.S., according to the American Heart Association, and medical experts agree that this ailment is largely the result of the consumption of animal products. Meat-eaters have a 32 percent higher risk of developing heart disease than Fruitarians – Raw Vegans!

Excess Protein

We consume over twice as much protein as we need when we eat a meat-based diet, and this contributes to osteoporosis, tooth decay and kidney stones. According to peer-reviewed studies, animal protein raises the acid level in our blood, causing calcium to be excreted from the bones and teeth in order to restore the blood’s natural pH balance. This calcium depletion leads to osteoporosis and cavities, and the excreted calcium ends up in the kidneys and joints, where it can form kidney stones, trigger kidney disease, contribute to arthritis and or gout.

Consuming animal protein has also been linked to cancer of the colon, breast, prostate, and pancreas. According to nutrition expert T. Colin Campbell, the director of the Cornell-China-Oxford Project on Nutrition, Health, and Environment, “In the next ten years, one of the things you’re bound to hear is that animal protein … is one of the most toxic nutrients of all that can be considered.”

Eating meat can also have negative consequences for stamina and sexual potency. One Danish study indicated that “men riding a stationary bicycle until muscle failure lasted an average of 114 minutes on a mixed meat and vegetable diet, 57 minutes on a high-meat diet, and a whopping 167 minutes on a vegan diet.” Besides having increased physical endurance, vegan men are also less likely to suffer from impotence.

Food Poisoning

Since we don’t have strong stomach acids like carnivores to kill all the bacteria in meat, dining on animal flesh can also give us food poisoning. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, meat is a significant cause of foodborne illnesses in the U.S. because it’s often contaminated with dangerous bacteria such as E. coli, listeria, and campylobacter. Every year in the U.S. alone, food poisoning sickens more than 48 million people and kills more than 3,000. Think about this a moment… If those number were from the vitamin supplement industry those industries would be shut down in a heart beat!

Dr. William C. Roberts, editor of the authoritative American Journal of Cardiology, sums it up this way: “Although we think we are carnivores and we act as if we are one, human beings are not natural carnivores. When we kill animals to eat them, they end up killing us because their flesh, which contains cholesterol and saturated fat, was never intended for human beings, who are natural raw vegans.”

Human Evolution and the Rise of Meat-Heavy Diets

If it’s so unhealthy and unnatural for humans to eat meat, why did our ancestors sometimes turn to flesh for sustenance?

During most of our evolutionary history, we were raw fruitarian or ate lots of fruits and as desired greens and veggies: Once humans came down out of the trees and began to roam, yams, made up the bulk of our diet. The more frequent addition of modest amounts of meat to the early human diet came with humans leaving the forest for the open grasslands and finding themselves starving enough to resort to pillaging carnivores abandoned kills or the remains of animals killed in forest fires. Which is likely how humans came to the discovery of fire, which in learning to transport or create, allowed us to lower the risk of being sickened or killed by parasites and bacteria in and on meat. This practice didn’t turn our ancestors into carnivores but rather allowed early humans to survive during periods in which plant foods were unavailable.

Modern Humans

Until recently, only the wealthiest people could afford to feed, raise, and slaughter animals for meat, and less wealthy and poor people ate mostly plant foods. Consequently, prior to the 20th century, only the rich were plagued routinely with diseases such as heart disease and obesity.

Since 1950, the per capita consumption of meat has almost doubled. Now that animal flesh has become relatively cheap and is easily available (thanks to the cruel, cost-cutting practices of factory farming), deadly ailments such as heart disease, strokes, cancer, and obesity have spread to people across the socio-economic spectrum. And as the Western lifestyle spills over into less developed areas in Asia and Africa, people there, too, have begun to suffer and die from diseases associated with meat-based diets.

Today we find ourselves in a world where humanity is rapidly destroying all ecosystems and their inhabitants for the sake of continuing the consumption of meat for falsely held beliefs that we must have it to get enough protein and vitamin B12. Some even use the excuse that God ordained humans to ravage the Earth which is about as foolish as imaginable.

If humanity continues eating animals the end result will be catastrophic for the entire planet in just our lifetimes at this point.
