Every animal has thought and feeling. Many cows lined up towards the slaughter house weep, as they know the smells of death and fear. The factories for "mainstream food" are the most disgusting, inhumane, toxic cesspools. Majority of Americans are still eating this so-called food. People are led astray and our elders know no better- its a vicious system created around you. Billions of animals die no more living life. All the bullshit was written into incarnations of ancient Holy books. Do people think slitting the innocent plant eating animals who depend on us on "Gods Temple" is a good thing "God" would want to see? Ripping doves heads off was done in Jewish temples. The Prince of Peace "freed the doves" from sacrifice. Religious books pushed sacrifice like demons in white sheep clothing. Roman Catholics came up with bullshit of eating Christ's flesh and drinking his blood every Sunday at mass. Eating flesh and drinking blood? Its all mixed up.. Meat sits in the body for up to a year. Its acidic and disease forming over time. The human stomach is not made for its best function. No carnivore has cheeks like we do. Majority ancient priesthood ate vegan, including Egyptians. Blood of flesh holds resonance of fear and aggression of slaughtered life. It transposes with the eaters electrical bio field and can inhibit negative field attraction and murky thought contemplation. All wheat is provided only right before death, as all fruits ripen and fall as nuts and lentils. The vegetable kingdom is photosynthesis of sunlight energy. Its sun energy vitality. You are what you eat. The Essenes, of which Jesus was, were vegetarians for spiritual purpose and like eastern philosophy of Gautama Buddha, no killing or sacrifice was done. #vegetarian #vegan #animal #life #nature #organic #truth #occupy #occupymonsanto #monsanto #fda #food #plantbased #love

Because Monsanto rules the FDA. But none of this is food or nutrition. What does it mean to eat “clean”? Eating foods that aren’t covered in pesticides and biological contaminants—it’s organic produce over conventional. Choosing the simplest, most wholesome foods, the ones without ingredients lists and unpronounceable components are full of vitality. 1. If it’s in a Box, Bag, or Can: Skip It: Processed foods (and lack of exercise) are the biggest culprit when it comes to ill health. These “things” are not food, and instead are additives, preservatives, colors, binders, and other lab-made components that provide little nutritional value. Maybe this is why 80% of the processed foods in the U.S. are banned around the world. 2. Choose Organic and Local Whenever Possible: Organic produce, by its very nature, has fewer contaminants. No pesticides or genetically modified components should be present, either. By choosing organic, you aren’t only lessening your exposure to these toxins, but you are eating foods that are better able to deliver the nutritional benefits within. Local organics are even better, as they are in season and purchased to support local small businesses and farmers. 3. Be a Food Minimalist: Keep it simple. Some of the healthiest foods (avocados, kale, garlic, turmeric) are easy to use and don’t require much alteration (if any) from their natural state. Ketchup, barbeque sauce, conventional salad dressings, seasoning salt—all of these may add another layer of flavor to your food, but they also add another layer of ill-health. Definitely ditch the sodas and conventional juices, but also be wary of those teas and “smoothie” drinks that claim to be “all natural”. 4. Eat More Plants- High Alkaline plant based diets are key to overcoming illness and overall health. Learn how to flavor different dishes and use Ayurveda herbs for healing. #health #healthcare #cancer #wholefood #tcm #holistic #nature #organic #vegan #vegetarian #truth #monsanto #occupy #occupymonsanto #fda #nutrition

THE ROOT OF THE FORMER SOVIET NATION'S TURMOIL: THE DIVISION BETWEEN THE RUSSIAN-SPEAKING EAST AND ANTI-YANUKOVYCH WEST The violence witnessed in Kiev this year is the worst seen in the country's 22 years as an independent nation, but the problems began when it broke away from the USSR and the leadership worsened when Yanukovich took power. When he took power in 2010, the country had two possible futures: One was under his authoritarian rule, the other was as a member of the EU authority. When the country separated from the Soviet union in 1991, it did so passively while obtaining vast wealth. It never fought for its independence like other former bloc states, including Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania. The main problem however stems from the political divide. The industrialized east, including the Crimea, and mid-western Ukraine have always been at odds over their identity. While the east has maintained ties to Russia, people in the West have opposed the regimes. In 2004, Mr Yanuokvich was accused of trying to steal the election, and protestors reacted violently. (Western backed open Neonazi) Yulia Tymoshenko took power instead in what has become known as the Orange Revolution. Six years later, Yanukovich was elected. Prior to the "revolt" Vladimir Putin held a secret meeting with Yanukovich, and agreed to provide the ex-Soviet state with cheap gas and £9billion in credit. As a result, the IMF/EU deal was shelved. Crimea, however, holds most of Russia's naval fleet and was annexed during the ensuing war now with over 10,000 murdered. The West, State Dept. Nuland has given over 50o million in aid while John McCain was in the revolution taking pictures with protestors. The West's involvement has created a bloody mess. #ukraine #kiev #truth #euromaidan #eu #imf #orangerevolution #revolution #occupy #occupy99 #russia #crimea #neocon
