Sometimes I just pose for a while and think, where is this world going with everything including food? It was quite fascinating in the early times to see new developments and technologies, but I wonder why I am beginning to really get scared nowadays. I am starting to think that everything is just moving too fast, like its the eleventh hour or something…just saying. Anyway , I would really like to bring to your attention a few details that you may not have been aware of.
It’s like over time, man has been on a journey/voyage. From the beginning people have drifted from what they initially ate in search for something better. We started with the natural foods, in the garden of Eden, with the foods that God himself thought was best for mankind, but as man thought himself smarter he began his own journey of food experiments. Man began to mix certain foods together, introduced chemicals,started using more improved means of preparing foods and devised new methods of food preservation. Over the years, scientists have been informing people on the different hazards that have been discovered in what happens to be what man made for himself out of his great intelligence and master mind.
In the beginning, there wasnt any fat to prepare food. Man had fire to prepare his food (healthy eating), but the smarter man came and invented deep fat frying, more smarter man discovered the complications of using too much fat on the human diet, and now we are back to the initial HEALTHY EATING which seems to be the starting point(Garden of Eden) and now the talk of the moment in this modern world. If you pose for a little while and think about this,you will really see what i’m talking about. Where exactly are we going. Is this God’s way of showing us that we can never improve on what He Himself made and succeed without any complications. I mean, from every improvement that man has made, complications are poping out ranging from obesity and high blood pressure to different kinds of cancers.
I’m personally beginning to think that what man has made for himself is beginning to hunt him down little by little. Now we are back to the natural and organic foods. It’s as if man has experimented and now we are on our way back to where we started. We are now recommended more than ever to eat many fruits and vegetables as well as drink a lot of water. Elimination of sugars and fats in diets, the very items that man initially incooperated into his own diet really proves to me that we are on our way back to where we started. At first processing foods was a revolution that was greatly accepted, but as the years went by ,people now demand less processed foods in believing that, the lesser the processed , the better. Medical science can prove the same thing as well, as people started off with roots and herbs and then later moved to different chemicals and antibiotics. Recent research has revealed that certain roots, barks and leaves are now being recommended more than ever. It’s as if man has exhausted everything, experimented, came to a point where he discovered the implications of what he had made and is now on the journey back to the natural.
Going green is the talk of the moment. People are becoming more and more , I mean by each day particular about nature, which was his original duty by the way. He is now more concerned about taking care of nature and eliminating as much processing in food, which he initially started hoping for better results and is beginning to eat his foods in more of its original state as in the beginning. We’ve just taken a voyage, experimented and discovered many different things and now we are on our way back. People are beginning to understand that by too much food processing so many vitamins, minerals and other food constituences are lost or damaged in the process, which gives him more work of trying to replace those minerals lost (fortification), until he realised, “but hey, i could have avoided this in the first place” Sometimes we just need to step out of a situation inorder to see things much more clearly.
It’s like history continues to repeat itself.
