Poems about food - Apples And Avocados: Nonviolent Food

Apples And Avocados: Nonviolent Food - Poem by O Anna Niemus

Of all the foods we eat,
only the fruit of the tree
the berry bush the vine
contains the seeds of
multiplication.. to take
us to the end of time.
Only fruit is God's
design.*

*
In Genesis, the Ramayana, and many
other faith scriptures, fruit is the
food God intended us to eat..
.... whatever we are given by
the plant freely... from trees of nut
.. seeds of the sunflower..
avocado orchards, olive groves.
Soybean icecream is a fruit.
Chili non carne.. made of kidney beans,
tomatoes, and peppers, is a fruit.
The sweet syrup of corn.. yes that too
is a fruit.

Health

The healthiest food (see below for.vitamin C. weight loss..natural fiber.least food poisoning.antiacidification.most digestible.natural for anatomy.prevention of calcium oxylate kidney stones. electrolyte balance. polysaccharides which prevent insulin exhaustion.fruitarian oils like olive oil best for heart.counters sleep-inducers.contains no volatile sulfur gases {onions do}.most natural prevention of scurvy, beri beri, and pellagra.eyesight conservation.bouncer of free radicals.stimulate enzymes which detoxify carcinogens, immune system booster.prevent diet-related diseases such as diabetes, arthritis, and heart disease through high potassium and other factors. no artificial colors, flavors, or MSG. the most efficient B12 {hydroxyl cobalamin not cyanocobalamin}.ulcer prevention with less hydrochloric acid)

Non-Violence

+ The only nonviolent food (no killing or theft from animal or plant) No branding, castration, or eartag punching of voiceless innocent animals.
+ POTENTIALLY NONVIOLENT HARVESTING The most nonviolent in harvest as well (prevention of harvester-caused deaths to humans and field mammals) (75,000 human accidents and some fatalities yearly.. as well as millions of mammals and other creatures sliced by combines, harvesters) (Gandhi said goats' milk kept him from being a full fruitarian.)
+ MOST GENEROUS the only freely given food, from the fruit tree which bequeaths all

No Cost...Free:

+ The most free food (freely given and no cost are not the same) (bury peachseeds in your back yard and come back) (May all who wish them have back yards)
+ Saves meat inspector costs, cattle raising tax-supported subsidies etc. etc.

Highest Yield:

+ Best feeds the hungry.. the food with the highest acreage yield (400,000 lbs. per acre) (spherical 3 dimensional fruit trees produce more than linear two dimensional rows of vegetables.) Dr. Faust, former chief of the USDA fruit labs: Centenarian apple trees can dropp 2 tons each of food. (This is further multiplied if fruitbearing vines are planted around tree trunks and fruitbearing plants are placed interarboreally. This is called tri-level agriculture.)
+ MOST DIVERSE food yield with millions of varieties of hundreds of thousands of species.

Environmental Reasons

+ The only food which can reforest the world (saying yes to tree products)
+ In reforesting the earth fruit and nut trees prevent erosion & mudslides and stabilizes temperature extremes And brings rain to desert, dust bowls and drought areas
+ And trees along with vines create oxygen
+ And purify and filter the air
+ And reduce the noise pollution of the planet.
+ The most efficiently wrapped (nutshells, banana peels, coconut husks)
+ The most decentralized (can be grown wherever are light, water, earth, and air)
+ Fruit trees, bushes and vines provide the most fabric for the planet (cotton etc.)
+ Fruit trees, bushes and vines provide housing materials (not in the form of wood from the killing of trees but fallen palm fronds etc. used in tropical housing.) 18b: Fruit eliminates the problem of flesh-containing trash which attracts neighborhood cats and dogs.
+ In reforesting, fruitarian diet adds greentree privacy screens
+ Those who let things be have no time, money, or landfill problem with the raking of fall leaves.
+ And re-provides a home for wildlife
+ And trees eat carbon dioxide which prevents global warming 22a: Fastest to prepare.. the Goddesigned fast food is fruit.


Energy

+ Since fruit has the most prolific yield of any food, and since any food can be turned into fuel, fruit (corn is only one of many) is one of the best sources of alternative fuel. (Fox TV Jan 24th: High fiber foods like oats give longer energy flow.)
+ The most energy free food in cultivation, harvest, and compost disposal. (Dr. Don Meyer: a lb. of vegetables takes l/80th the production energy of a lb. of animal flesh) (Fruit foods are in tri level agriculture 450 times as energy efficient as meat)
+ Fruitarian soaps leave none or the least bathtub rings while animal soaps (with lard or tallow) leave the most.
+ Fruitarian cotton paper lasts 400 years. Libraries are finding that tree paper lasts 60 to 100 years.
+ Fruit is the most easily reproduced of of all foods. It can be windsired.
+ The diet of humankind before we worked by the sweat of our brows
+ Because it is the most easily reproduced, and the most diverse, it most easily makes new non-laboratory species.

Beauty

+ The most beautiful (stained glass lime.. green pepper belltower where little seedbells hang) (fruits of almost infinite hues.. from most intense to most pastel.. from red passion to violet compassion)
+ The food which most preserves the body's beauty (the most vitamin C (none in animal products) (vitamin C firms cellular tissue)
+ Fruit is the sweetest food, meat the most bitter.
+ The most fragrant.. with petaled fruit blossoms which effortlessly attract bees
+ Of all dietary groups, fruitarians on the average weigh the least (Dr. Mervyn Hardinge Harvard study and others) (You can't be too rich or too thin.. say the actuaries about centenarian men.) (The causes of overweight are only tangentially overeating. Some of the root causes are fear of starvation, fear of sexual intimacy, a need for a weight blanket to counter sensitivity, unreleased anger, chewing as a relaxation device.) There have been a number of fruitarian diet books written, such as one on grapefruit, one on grape juice etc. Susan Estrich, former Dukakis presidential campaign manager, currently a law professor at UC, spoke of struggling with hundreds of diet books and overweight for 30 years, says be prepared to walk past vending machines by having apples in your purse or briefcase.

Addiction Breaking

+ The uric acid (pre-urine) in the muscle cells of animal flesh is an addictive trioxypurine, even more so than caffeine (dioxypurine) A diet of much fruit replaces addictive biochemicals.

The True Natural AntiDepressant

+ The adrenal poisons dumped by animals fighting for their lives in slaughter re-create depression, fright, and anger in those eating the animal flesh. Adrenalin is a long protein enzyme chain whose chain links are only partially broken by cooking heat.

Frees from Alcoholism:

+ General Bramwell Booth of the Salvation Army found that vegetarian diet is a natural antidote to the biochemical marriage of meat and alcohol. Current researchers find that as alcohol solvents outside the body cut grease, so do they inside. (May other cities have proportionately as many corner fruit stands and fruit and smoothie vendors as the Big Apple has.)
+ Fruits which are uncooked or eaten within 3 hours after cooking do not develop sleep-inducing bacteria (known in ancient over 20,000 year old Sanskrit as tamasic)

Consciousness and Brain Development:

+ The food which most supports brain development and consciousness (according to double Nobel Prize winning, nonagenarian neurobiochemist Linus Pauling who discovered six elements in the chemical table) (Fruitarianism is indicated by several anthropologists including Dr. Leakey and Dr. Marvin Katz as humankind's natural diet) (It is the diet of Leonardo da Vinci according to his Notebooks as researched by Dudley Giehl, HarperCollins author) (Mathematicians Einstein, (Pythagoras of the theorem and Ramanujan did not eat flesh.)
+ The food which most supports mental and emotional peace (since the polysaccharides in fruit provide the most even of all energy flows in the body)
+ Chewing apples and coconut relaxes mouth and body muscles.
+ The most translucent..(the closest to pure light) (lime crosssection)
+ An antidote to the light resistance of lower frequency foods the consumption of which creates a natural aversion to light
+ A sleep conquering agent (The Sanskrit word for the sleep-inducing biochemicals in onions, garlic, and standing cooked meat is tamas.)

Empowerment:

+ The food which saves the most time (compare 3 hours for a roast to 20 seconds to peel a banana or 3 minutes to cook a fruitarian burger) (Compare the time to scrub a roast pan and all the concomitant dishes to the time required to compost a peel.)
+ Because fruit is so prolific, it melts away money, political and outside control systems which depend upon scarcity.

Promotes Meditation:

+ As high quality wiring helps channel electricity into a home, fruitarian diet is a ground for Spirit. Specifically lauric acid in coconuts is conducive to a meditative, peaceful state.
+ Just as the infra-red to ultraviolet light spectrum increases in frequency from red through orange and yellow to green blue and violet, so in fruits and foods in general. Therefore, limes are better than lemons. Violet grapes are better than crimson cherries.

Promotes Focus:

+ John Feinstein NPR Sports spoke of Bill Walton on the Portland Blazers team scoring in 21 of 22 basket attempts. (During that time Mr. Walton was wearing Love Animals Don't Eat Them tshirts at press conferences.)

Best for Economy... in Centenarian Trees Many Fruit Cents become Dollars:

+ Money does fall from trees. Look at the $2 avocados. If a centenarian avocado tree drops 2000 avocados that's $4000 per tree, $400,000 oer acre.
+ The food most resistant to currency fluctuation (CNN on Jan 18th ran a Swiss Radio International report which finds that businesses which marry ethics and economics do better in the long run.) .
+ Fruit is light's expansion. Meat is killing's contraction. Love is expansion. Selfishness is constriction.
+ The food best for stable economies..(The drought which can destroy linear rows of plant crops does not kill orchards) (Thank you Jimmy Stewart for ordering tomato juice on the train in your movie.)


Safety:

+ Prevention of choking on meat and fish, the 6th highest cause of accidental death.
+ The food which causes the least grease and stove fires (Prevention of industrial accidents listed elsewhere) .

Prevention of Sexual Dysfunction:

+ Dr. Michael Klaper MD lectures on vegan diet as a help for impotence.. relieving cholesterol pressure in arteries. He states that a 25% blockage of arteries can cause 4 times that much obstruction.
+ The least breast and prostate cancer.
+ The least gynecomastia (male breast growth from female hormones present in meat and dairy products)

Crime Prevention:

+ The food which causes the least incidence of rape (the female hormones given to cows, pigs, chickens, etc. cause an excitation of the sexual system in those who eat animal products) added to by adrenalin based violence (from the fright hormones secreted by animals before slaughter) .
+ Cotton fruit can eliminate forest destruction for paper.
+ The pectin in apples is a fruit source for candles.
+ Fruitarians need less dish soap and therefore less rinsing water.
+ Coconut meat is an excellent chew toy for dogs.
+ Reduce sulfuric acid. The volatile gas of sulfur in onions, when mixed with the lachrymater of tears.. becomes hydrogen sulfide, sulfuric acid or other sulfur compounds.

World Peace and Justice:

+ Over a decade ago, a government research paper indicated the major cause of the crisis in Poland was a lack of meat. Entire populations were addicted to the uric acid (trioxypurine) in meat. Breaking addictions is a factor in world peace.
+ General Bramwell Booth of the Salvation Army ended alcoholism for London drinkers through nonmeat diet. (His father General William Booth advocated planting fruit trees along railroad tracks, in parks etc. to create food for the poor.) kept the British Navy from scurvy. So the sailors were called limeys.
+ A Czarist navy ship mutinied sparked by meat full of maggots. This led to an overthrow of Czarist anti peasant, anti-worker policies.
+ Fruit lasts longer without refrigeration or freezing. Nuts in a shell.. apples in a cellar.. coconuts within the husk.
+ More efficient military. The British navy found that limes prevented scurvy. The Odessa mutiny of the Czar's Odessa ship was sparked by sailors refusing to eat maggot infested meat.
+ Politically uniting: combines the freedom granting of the poor and the left with the conservative nature of the right.

Self Replicating:

* The only food which can reproduce itself (containing eternal seeds)

o The only self replicating food (Fruitarians who believe in plant sentience would be upset with Nostradamus' suggestion that in a special recipe one needs 300 roses plucked before dawn.)

Oil Source:

+ The oil used in eating fruit and cooking with fruit (coconut, olive, corn, nutoils etc.) is also oil which can fuel vehicles and oil machinery.


God Designed:

+ Genesis 1: 29 The Garden of Eden Behold I have given you herb-yielding seed. To you it shall be for meat. The Hebrew holiday of Tu B Shvat or the awakening of the fruit tree sap is one example.
+ Buddha: May all that have life be delivered from suffering. If plants are sentient, have feelings, this prayer implies not killing them and not using insect killers, known as insecticices. There are frequent references to fruit in the Quran.
+ The Essene Gospel of Peace and the research of many Biblical scholars indicates the pure diet of Jesus. His anger in the temple over money changing animal sacrificing, his cursing of the barren fig tree are some indications.
+ In Hinduism, Rama the first embodied avatar, was fruitarian 14 years in the forest. Krishna, the first avatar to descend with all power, was a lacto-fruitarian (eating fruit and dairy at a time when animals were loved and not factory farmed) . Mahatma Gandhi tried to become a full fruitarian. Gandhi felt his love of goats' milk a barrier. He planted fruit trees all over his ashram.

A fruitarian eats nothing which has been killed or stolen. That supplants meat, dairy, and plants with the thousands of fruit and nut combinations on the planet. E.g., a fruitarian can eat an avocado sandwich, a coconut milk shake or the purest coconut ice cream made from the milk and meat of the fruit, veggie burgers made of lentil or beanpaste or tofu etc., , a succotash of corn, limas, peas, and tomatoes, sweets made with corn syrup or date sugar, or fructose, pecan pies made with fruit sugars, fruitshakes made of a mixture of orange and banana, pear and peach, pomegranate, papaya, and plum.. a pizza of tofu, tomato, and pepper (not pepperoni) , salads of tomato, cucumber, green and red peppers (but not lettuce, cabbage, or celery) , nutbutters such as almond butter, tahini (a mixture of sesame seed, lemon juice, and hummus {chickpea paste}, cornbread and muffins.
# The scriptures of several religions and the research of several anthropologists including that of Dr. Marvin Katz and Dr. Leakey, the son of another famous Leakey, indicates our frugivorous origins. Another implication of fruitarian diet isorganic food, since insecticides are not used with their carcinogenic and bone and teeth harming results. The book The Holy Science by Sri Yukteswar has a fruitarian chapter which inspired Dennis Weaver 40 odd years ago on the set of Gunsmoke to give up meat.

Industrial Safety-Preventing Industrial Slaughterhouse Accidents:
# A UFCW union steward has said that most worker accidents occur in slaughterhouses. Fruitarian diet prevents the following accidents:
* Workers are kicked, bitten, and scratched in the head by terrified animals fighting for their lives unsuccessfully.
* Contract ear problems from the screaming and shrieking of the animals,
* Have problems with bones in relation to the cold storage rooms.
* Cuts from the metal machinery, running into computer line knives.
* Alcoholism and drug use from trying to deal with the animals' suffering they are constantly absorbing.
# The reduction of OSHA staff and the use of illegal aliens to fill these jobs, some of the most unpopular in the industry, intrinsically means more accidents.
# Electrocution from machinery near liquid secretions.
# In slaughterhouses where pig flesh is scalded, there are frequent burns.
# Open grease pits for blood, grease, feces, urine are traps for tired employees.
# There is ligament tearing in the back, shoulders, and arms from the lifting of 100 lb. or several hundred lb. carcasses.
# Carpal tunnel is a frequent complaint of meat cutters.
# As a 1980's administration doubled the legal speed of the line, there is a consequent increase in accidents.
# The deregulation of some slaughterhouses has meant less trained personnel.
# In fish slaughter, there are also bites, scratches, hook accidents, fishing line accidents, drownings and other trauma.
# Prevention of contracting the animals' diseases in contact with slaughterhouse fluids (blood, feces, urine, vomit) .
# Slip and fracture themselves on blood, urine, vomit and feces soaked floors,
# Lung problems from constant exposure to feather dust (A Japanese movie shown on Bravo is a tale of peach trees cut down as their spirits speak to children.) .

Health Continued Weight Green Starch:
# Avocados, lima beans, peas are very filling fruits. The toxin bouncer chlorophyll is necessary. Any uncooked green fruit contains it. Other sources are limes, green peppers, etc.
# Fruit has the most natural fiber for good intestinal function. and therefore fruitarians have the least intestinal cancer, constipation, appendicitis, hemarrhoids, peritonitis etc.
# Fruit, says Marion Burros of the NY Times, requires no insulin for processing of its polysaccharides, disaccharides, and monosaccharides so that fruit does not exhaust the pancreas. It is a natural guard against diabetes. (Fruitarian Dick Gregory ran 3000 miles across the U.S.)

Dr.Frank Sachs of the Harvard School of Public Health confirms fruits and vegetables are the best.
# Elizabeth Cohen of CNN: A banana has 450 mg of bloodpressure reducing potassium. It is better to get potassium in fruit than in pills.
# The plethora of antacid ads showing pills after burgers underlines the hydrochloric acid required in the stomach to break down animal flesh. Countries with the highest rates of stomach cancer have the highest fish consumption.
# Even citrus fruit becomes alkaline in processing. Fruit is the least acid of all foods and therefore the food which is best for long life.
# Fruit is the best food for the electrolyte balance of body.
# Fruit yields its energy the most gradually as first monosaccharides are burned, then disaccharides, then polysaccharides.
# Fruit causes the least food poisoning of any foods. (Knight Ridder: 97% of all food poisoning fatalities are caused by animal products)
# Fruit prevents calcium oxylate kidney stones associated with the cooking of oxalic acid vegetables and the much more frequent uric acid kidney stones associated with meat.
# Fruitarian oils such as olive are best for the heart. Meat and fish oils are the most complex, hardest to break down, have the most toxins.
# Fruit contains no volatile sulfur compounds which can become sulfuric acid and lachrymaters. Onions contain such.
# Fruit has the least insecticides. It is good to eliminate all insecticides.. to shop organically.. yet meat has 21 times the insecticide level of fruit because the average nameless 1,000 lb cow at her time of slaughter ate 21,000 lbs of fruit. In addition, fruit is from a filtering tree which deposits insecticides in the stem, twig, trunk, and roots, protecting the fruit as a mother protects her fetus. Besides a cruel death for insects, insecticides cause cancer, teeth loss, bone weakening, immune system devastation. A few drops of parathion is enough to kill. The United Farm Workers have spent decades fighting the planes of death which spray their fields.
# Stephanie Beling, M.D. cites nuts and seeds as boosters of the immune system, cholesterol reducers, elimination aids, inflammation preventers, and stimulants of enzymes which detoxify carcinogens.
# Fruit is best for the kidneys. Animal eaters, carnivores, have 5 times the kidney size per lb. that frugivores, fruiteaters, have. Carnivores have adapted to the extensive nitrogen shearing required by the kidneys in turning exaggerated protein intake into carbohydrate.
# Fruit breaks the addiction of uric acid in meat, which is trioxypurine.
# Fruit has the most vitamin C of any food. Dairy and meat have none.
# Fruitarians have the best heart since a. the stimulant uric acid is eliminated b. the stressful adrenalin from frightened animals is eliminated c. there is no animal fat etc.
# Fruitarians on the average weigh least. Nonvegetarians weigh the most. Vegans weigh 2nd least. Nondairy vegetarians third least (Dr. Mervyn Hardinge's research at Harvard and that of others)
# Organic fruit juice is more pure than spring water because it is filtered by the roots, trunk and twigs of the tree.

Prevention of Cruelty to Animals:
# It still occurs in some areas around the world (as described in Upton Sinclair's Jungle) that some animals are dropped alive into boiling water before dead.96. Mother cows are separated from their calves at veal butchering time through shocking rods.
# There is freezing of some animals as the trucks go through mountain passes where the high winds rip through openslatted trucks.
# There is absolute terror as the animals hear the ones in front of them being butchered.
# The 30,000 blizzard-stranded cows and 20,000 sheep on Dec 31st,1997 are a not wished for result of the cattle and sheep industries. Dick Goddard, Fox 8 weatherman and longtime animal protector, says paradoxically the cows sometimes do not freeze, but die of thirst because they cannot chew enough snow to process their needs.
# They are kicked, bitten by other animals as they panic in hearing the animals in front of them in the killing line.
# Animals relax around fruitarians because they do not smell like competitors.
# Animals die of thirst often in transit.
# Animals are goaded onto conveyor belts with pitchforks and electric shocking rods.

Most Varied:
# There are hundreds of thousands of varieties of fruit in the world. There are a few mammal types humans eat, hundreds of dairy combinations, tens of thousands of vegetables and hundreds of thousands of fruit combinations.
