Meat-Eaters Protect Yourselves!

Over the last couple of years, I have been increasing my research into food, drinks and other foodstuffs for two particular reasons – the health of my family and for my book, Shattering the Grandest Illusions. I can tell you one thing I am certainly not deluded by: the incredible amount of poisons (a.k.a ‘toxins’ to make it easier to swallow) that are imbued within the food stuff.

My conclusions are pretty straight-forward. The vast majority of the diseases suffered by humans are directly related to the food we eat. I know. I worked in the medical devices industry specialising in endoscopy equipment for gastro-intestinal diseases. Therefore, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that we can remove the majority of the causes for diseases such as cancer by simply changing our eating habits.

So, you can imagine my horror when I read an article by ‘What Doctors Don’t Tell You’ earlier today:

“People who regularly eat chicken and other meat are unwittingly making themselves more susceptible to antibiotic-resistant ‘super bugs’.  Poultry farmers are illegally using a broad-spectrum antibiotic in animal feeds that was banned for agricultural use in 2005.”

The antibiotic that is being referred to is fluoroquinolone, which was banned because it is becoming increasingly inoccuous to a resistant superbug. For years, farmers have been knowingky using drugs to fatten up chickens, sheep and beef simply to increase profits. I remember the absolute craziness surrounding the Mad Cow’s Disease (BSE) fiasco in the 1990s. Can you believe cattle were being fed remains of other cattle in order to increase the yield? In the UK alone, 180,000 cows were infected and 4.5 million had to be slaughtered. Humans who got infected by the disease developed CJD (Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease). By 2003, 143 people had fatally been infected by CJD.

My further conclusion is that I cannot trust the meat-farming industry enough to continue eating meat. Today, I am primarily a pescetarian, which means I mainly eat vegetables and fish. Converting from a regular meat-eater to a primarily vegetarian diet was far more easier than I thought. Then again, I’m very lucky – I have Chrissy White and her Gourmet Revolution Show to help guide me! Chrissy will be interviewing a seasoned expert, Juliet Gellatley, in phasing into a vegetarian diet. Juliet is the Founder and Director of  founder and director of Viva! – Vegetarians International Voice for Animals.

Juliet  Gellately has a vitally important and positive message that will inspire you to rethink you relationship to meat and dairy, challenging the deep seated beliefs that exist around animal based foods. Hear how she really highlights the healthy, guilt free options available to us all. When you are ready for change, want to supercharge your health and just don’t know what to do….start here!

As a final note, personally I do not believe everybody should become a complete vegetarian. That is certainly a personal choice. However, I strongly believe everybody has the right to know what external additives and toxins go into their food before making a decision to eat. As there is less chance of contaminating vegetables (with the exception of herbicides, pesticidesa and GMO!!!), I opt for that option for my family and I.

ABOUT JULIET GELLATLEY

Juliet Gellatley is the founder and director of Viva! – Vegetarians International Voice for Animals – a campaigning group based in Bristol, UK. We have a sister group, Viva! Poland (also founded by Juliet) in Poland – www.viva.org.pl.

Juliet originated National Vegetarian Week (when working for the Vegetarian Society as campaigns director in the 1980s and 90s) with the support of Linda McCartney and her campaign SCREAM!! took the truth about factory farming into the nation’s schools for the first time. The result was a network of youth campaigners across Britain which dramatically increased vegetarianism amongst young people.

 By working closely with education authorities, her CHOICE! campaign increased the number of schools offering healthy vegetarian main meals from 13 per cent to 65 per cent. She launched and edited the first veggie youth mag in the UK, Greenscene.  After her adult campaign Feeding You the Facts, a survey revealed that vegetarianism in Britain had doubled in one year.  She left the Society as director in 1994 to found Viva!.

Viva! is a vegetarian and vegan organisation which campaigns energetically to end the abuse of animals killed for food.  It is motivated by passion and backed by science. Juliet also founded and directs the UK national charity, the Vegetarian & Vegan Foundation, which launched in 2002 and concentrates on campaigning on health and nutrition. All groups are funded by public donations.

Does the Business World Need a Revolution?

“That will be £2.20, sir”, I said to the customer who proceeded to pay for his Chicken Curry and Pillau Rice.

That was the first customer order I took for my dad at his take-away in 1982. In those days, we let people know we existed via newspaper ads and leaflet drops. I was responsible for the ads. Then we would work our butts off to cook the best food and give the best service we knew how. Unfortunately, my dad was not the award-winning chef he would be ten years later and we were not located in a town famous for its connoisseurs of world cuisine. The true curry fans associated the curry with getting drunk before eating the hottest dish on the menu or even off the menu! Sunderland was also going through the worst recession in its history. Therefore, to say business was tough is an understatement. Unsurprisingly, our business shut down in less time than we could have imagined.

There is no doubt that, historically, most entrepreneurs go into business to make a profit. Given that there are 4.5million businesses in the UK and 99% are SMEs (Small and Medium Enterprises), many of which are sole traders and partnerships, cashflow is the main means of survival. In fact, the British economy is hugely dependent on SME’s to thrive.

However, in a desperation to merely survival (50% of businesses fail in the first year and 97% by the third year), many entrepreneurs end up following the herd and resort to methods to market their business, which is out of integrity. In the 1970s and ’80s, motoring magazines were usually on or near the top shelf. Car and motorcycle ads would have bikini-clad size zero models sprewn over the vehicle. That hasn’t completely disappeared today. Today, the gaming industry uses sex and gratuitous violence (computer games) to attract a younger audience.

Of course, how can the sales profession be ignored? Most people loathe pushy salespeople who are in your face, right? So, why do so many people do it? I left the sales-training industry in 2007 specifically because the sales trainers who were the most successful in getting clients were teaching fear-based selling. What does that say about the state of business?

Ever since I ran like a the Road-Runner from the sales-training industry, I have been praying for a new way to sell to be revealed to us. At the end of last year, my prayers were answered! Unbeknownst to me, one of my new friends, Lynn Serafin, had been researching like crazy about sales and marketing in order to find a new, integral and integrated way for businesses to attract customers and keeping them. Her book, ‘The Seven Graces of Marketing‘, is the new bible for ANYBODY and EVERYBODY who wishes to build a profitable business that creates true value for the enterprise, the customer and the world.

Lynn will be joining me on tonight’s Consciousness Revolution Show at 7pm BST (British Summer Time) to reveal what it takes to move a business from merely surviving to going beyond thriving by understanding the Seven Deadly Sins of Marketing and the Seven Graces of Marketing. Here are the details:

  • Time: 7pm BST, 11am PST, 2pm EST, 8pm CET, 11.30pm IST
  • Date: Monday 9th April 2012
  • Place: on http://www.untangledfm.com
  • Price: FREE
  • Registration: No need. Follow this blog here or Facebook to keep updated.

If you own a business, wish to start a business or are looking for ways to be more successful in business, then feel free to tune in. Does the business world need a revolution? Actually, that question no longer matters. The revolution has already started!

A bold, holistic and often spiritual examination not merely of the world of advertising, but also of our entire world view, this book reveals how our relationships with Self, others, our businesses, our economy and the Earth impact every aspect of our lives. Lynn shows the impact consumer culture has upon our health, our economy and the delicate ecological balance of our natural world. As much for the conscious consumer as the business owner, this book shows why traditional ways of selling are ultimately doomed to fail, and how both business owners and consumers can begin to heal the world by embracing a new paradigm Lynn calls ‘The 7 Graces of Marketing.’

The Lost Art of Critical Thinking

Human beings have one very important distinguishing factor from that of other mammals. We have the ability to make choices…consciously. Sure, animals make choices, too. However, their choices are based on pre-determined programmes that they are born with, which are then influenced by the environment they live in.

Humans also have the ability to make choices either through conditioning and programming or through a conscious process of critical thinking. The final decision is made with the heart, but for true staying power, that decision is made with the intuition. Unfortunately, I will go as far to say that over 97% of people’s thinking is based on predetermined patterns and programmes. Therefore, when a person thinks they are thinking consciously, they are, in reality, going through a pattern of thought based on their programming.

Critical thinking involves asking great quality questions that require some pondering and involves the use of all faculties beyond the five senses. For example, when looking at the vast volume of money (in the billions of dollars) spent on cancer research every year, one would imagine that cures, beyond chemotherapy and radiotherapy, would have been found for major cancers by now. Not so. Western medicine has an almost entire focus on fighting the symptoms than treating the causes.

A person who was utilising critical thinking would perhaps figure out that the pharmaceutical corporation whose sole purpose is to grow shareholder’s profits has no interest in eliminating a phenomenal cash-cow like cancer. It will also be obvious why politicians blatantly support and are supported by the pharmaceutical industry. Thus, a critical thinker would firstly investigate further into alternative routes to dealing with cancer as well as bring to account those who betray the trust of the public in order to protect the interests of corporations, i.e. politicians.

In the meantime, here is a short clip that you may find interesting on one ancient science that may begin to start shedding light on dealing with cancer…

For people interested in finding out much more on the work done by Marcus Freudenmann through his DVD documentary, Cancer is Curable Now, please check out the video by clicking this link: Cancer is Curable Now Trailer!

I leave you with this. The human race is going through a massive awakening in this period of our history. The awakening process is not optional nor is it difficult. Those who choose to take ownership of their right to use critical thinking, i.e. truly think and feel for themselves, will enjoy a smoother journey than most. I hope you are one such person.

How Women Hold the Real Answers to the World’s Crises

The current condition of the planet is, at the very least, dire. At worse, some may argue that the human race are at the brink of destruction. None of this happened overnight. The world economic crisis was already on the cards long before the financial collapse of 2008. Countries like Greece are being slaughtered by the corporations via their paid servants, politicians and mass media. The consequences are massive levels of poverty, unemployment and disenfranchisement.

After 4,000 years of male dominated society, it is all too clear that patriarchal rule is a failed experiment. I am not suggesting that matriarchy has all the answers either. Nonetheless, there is much that can be learnt from both ancient history where matriarchy was predominant as well as from Nature. Nature, follows universal principles that lead to Natural Law. For the past 4,000 years, human society has been striving to move away from nature in order to build community. This process was called ‘civilisation’. There is a reciprocal correlation between civilisation and nature. The more that society became civilised, the further removed it was from nature.

In the classical languages such as Latin, Greek, Arabic and even French, the words ‘Cosmos’ ‘Nature’ and ‘Earth’ are given the feminine gender and often referred to as  ‘Mother Cosmos’, ‘Mother Nature’ and ‘Mother Earth’. And, for good reason. Mother Cosmos gave birth to all that is manifest in the Cosmos. Mother Nature gave birth to Natural Law. Mother Earth gives birth to all provisions  (with the notable exception of light from the Sun) required by humans and other sentient beings to live. The Mothers nourish, nurture and give the vital ingredients for the growth of their children. After a certain time of undergoing this process of creativity within the womb of the Mothers, birth takes place. This process is known by Taoists as the ‘Yin’ process.

The yin represents the feminine energy, whilst the yang represents the masculine. The yin is symbolic of the unseen process of creativity. The yang symbolises the manifestator and the manifestation, i.e.  Creator and the Creation. Whilst the yang is what is seen, it only represents a very tiny fraction of the balance between itself and the yin. For example, in the process of human procreation, a man may have sex and impregnate a woman in matter of minutes or even seconds. This represents the yang element. The zygote, which then becomes an embryo is nourished, nurtured and receives life force comes through its mother over a duration of 40 weeks. This period of time is the yin period and it becomes the yang at childbirth.

The role played during this time by the masculine is minimal. After birth, the mother continues the process of feeding, nourishing and nurturing the child. She collaborates with the father to raise the child for a certain period of time. In Nature, the father becomes a protector of the mother and child as well as the provider of food, water and shelter to the nursing mother.

The principles of nurturing, protection and collaboration are imbued in the cells and the genetic coding of women. Competition is more prevalent in men and is as a by-product of them moving away from their own nature. Society has been falsely manipulated into believing that permanent competition is a good thing and that survival of the fittest will decide on who deserves to have it all. After all, winner takes it all, right? Wrong. According to the work of eminent evolution biologist, Dr Elisabet Sahtouris, competition is present in nature at the earliest stages of its development. For example, think of how lion cubs play fight. However, as the species matures, it becomes much more collaborative and co-operative. In order to maintain survival of the lion pride, for example, the lionesses will often hunt in packs to have a joint feast. Unlike the human species, it will kill according to how much they need to eat.

In order to rebuild a society that is co-operative and collaborative and seeks to nurture all, we need consider many options. However, there needs to be a total paradigm shift from patriarchal, survival of the fittest mentality as a starting point. Women who are already in places of power need to consider the incredible gift they have within and how they can tap into such innate abilities to begin the transformation process. Women like Lisa Clapier of the Occupy Wall Street Movement have demonstrated that the point of protesting is not about ‘Us against Them’, but the corporation between all humans in a joint purpose of growth and evolution. Women like Mother Teresa created teams of women whose service was to a higher purpose than the profit-motive. The results of her work speak for themselves.

I am a man. I do not have all the answers, but I do know where the majority of the answers to our greatest questions will come from. It is from women. This article is not a case against men. It is a case for a re-evaluation and redressing the power wielded and given by the two genders of the same species. Should humanity continue its route to control, manipulation, deceit and greed, an ultimate disaster will not be such a remote possibility. Should humanity shake itself up and wake itself up, then perhaps it will be given an opportunity to move away from survival alone in order to thrive and flourish. Will we really allow ourselves to forget that without the Mothers, we cannot exist?

How to Eliminate the Barriers to Love & How to Build Fulfilling Relationships

“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”

Rumi.

On February 14th every year, millions of people celebrate Valentine’s Day. Regardless of its historical foundation, it cannot be argued that a huge number of people share in amorous love on that date every year. For example, fifteen million Valentine’s e-cards were sent in 2010 alone, which indicates a just the tip of the iceberg of a multi-billion pound industry.

Consumerism aside, what does this mean in reality? In my mind, this is an indication that the majority of people want to love and want to be loved. Yet, the levels of relationship breakdown and the decimation of the institution of marriage has never been higher than today. Join me during today’s Consciousness Revolution Show when I will be interviewing a professional therapist, Sara Ellis, about this very important matter. During the show, you will hear about:

  • What are the repercussions of relationship breakdown?
  • What are the causes of unfulfilling relationships and the breakdown that ensues?
  • Why people are binging on foods, such as chocolate, to avoid what they really want – sex!
  • How to eliminate the barriers to love?
  • How the simple tool of self-hypnosis can be a powerful aid in reclaiming love?

There will be these questions and many more that I will be putting to Sara Ellis during her live interview on The Consciousness Revolution Show. Join us…
