Chronicles Of Crises In Our Communities

By:

Is it any wonder that so many of our children walk around with pasty complexions and runny noses? It’s high time we all came to realize that the manufacturers, sellers and advertisers are the only ones gaining any benefit from all of these unnatural and unhealthy foodstuffs.

A frustrated auntie

Dear Readers,

Whereas it’s comforting to see that many of us have a genuine concern for our children’s health and well-being, it is somewhat unsettling to hear about those who seem to be in the dark with regards to the value of good nutrition and the downside of ingesting sugar laden and empty calorie junk food.

Talk about show and tell, a quick look at nature’s foods reveals how especially suited they are for human consumption: Take the carrot – slice it and marvel at its remarkable likeness to the human eye; cut the tomato in half and see how its four chambers resemble the human heart. Crack a walnut open and the nutmeat inside the hard shell looks much like – and helps vitalize – the human brain. Kidney beans are shaped like the human kidney and help maintain healthy kidney function. Eggplants, avocados and pears are beneficial for the female reproductive system. Did you know that it takes nine months for an avocado to grow to mature ripeness?

The anti-oxidant element of grapes helps keep our blood cells healthy and they are especially beneficial for the lungs. Sweet potatoes promote healthy pancreas function, while onions help flush waste materials out of body cells. Olives keep our ovaries healthy and robust, while figs are a boon to male reproduction and citrus fruits are great for our mammary glands.

Parents can be easily frustrated with their children at mealtime. Still, all the work in instilling good eating habits is well worth the effort and is bound to pay off in the long run.
