I read one of the comments yesterday, from a visitor to our site, in response to the ThinkVitality Video which focuses on CANCER PREVENTION. And she wrote, “I want to start learning and investing in illness prevention, rather than illness hospital bills. I want to change my life style in many areas starting with what me and my family eat.”
And I began to think about the words she used… “investing”, and how she made “what she and her family eat” top priority when mentioning “changing her lifestyle in many areas”. The simplicity of her desires rang loudly in my mind, and I started thinking about all the various organizations raising millions of dollars from “donations” (which are actually investments), for research to find a “Cancer Cure” that already exists…and has existed for at least 80 years, when Max Gerson discovered the power of Raw Organic Foods for curing any disease!!!
Now, you tell me what makes more sense… to keep throwing millions of dollars into research of an unnecessary cancer cure, or to redirect that money towards organizations involved with the actual Prevention of all Diseases on a massive scale, by making it more affordable for people to buy and eat fresh organic fruits and vegetables on a daily basis? This can be accomplished by supporting and establishing subsidized Food-Co-ops, which will greatly reduce the cost of high quality organic foods for Co-op Members! Or even subsidize the Organic Farmers directly, so that they don’t have to charge as much for their produce, and/or expand their farms to create even more good nutritional food than they already do!
Also, by simply re-directing some of those MILLIONS of “finding-a-cure-that-already-exist” dollars, the cost of health care on a national scale would go down to an absolute minimum because a majority of the people would be healthy most of the time!! In fact, maybe health care costs could become so affordable that it could simply become part of the National Budget and absolutely free for the people, like in the Netherlands!
Think about it!… Millions of people getting and staying healthy because they have a daily abundant diet of fresh organic fruits and vegetables! Possibly, even some of the money could be utilized for teaching gardening skills, and to put both children and adults to work throughout their neighborhoods, helping families to grow, maintain, and harvest vegetable gardens in their unused yard-space, or maybe even creating community gardens on vacant lots, with everyone in the neighborhood sharing in the harvest! Block Clubs could become an intricate part of the movement, and the schools might even be able to actually start growing enough organic foods for serving healthy lunches in the cafeterias…The possibilities would be endless!
Let your imagination soar!… Mine just did!
