Why so many rules about what we eat? Well my friends, it turns out that if all of us on this Spaceship Earth ate whole food plant based diets Climate Change, aka known as Global Warming would be reduced by 50%!! Who me? Eat like I Give A Damn?
Not me....Me? Could I be responsible for what is going on here on this planet? Me, as an individual can actually have an impact on anything? Yes, you can my friend! Pollution, who me? I don't see it.... Therefore I must not be responsible....Hmmmm, think again! Or at least THINK!!:)
I had the privilege to meet a new friend named Roberta last night at the Pittsburgh East Suburban Plant Based Nutrition Support Group in the Murrysville Public Library. This new friend is my new HERO! She facilitated Sally Lipsky's, another of my HERO's, addition to an upcoming health event.....a UPMC Anti- Cancer health event....Sally had been ignored previously as her work was characterized as just another 'diet.' Well, it turns out that the whole foods, plant based way of eating is a LIFESTYLE shift. Hey folks, the shift is hitting the fan. And it is TIME to make the lifestyle changes of this next era, so as a human species we will survive among the rest of the species. We need to stop pretending we are the only conscious beings on this planet and know that animals and plants are sentient too. And who knows who else and what else surrounds us that we are not able to detect in our conscious awareness with our limited perception?
I've spent my entire career as a developmental optometrist working in the realm of visual perception and how vision interacts with hearing and the other senses. Now as an elder, or a mid- life woman, I'm just beginning to scratch the surface of understanding there is much more to life on this planet than what we are able to perceive!
The second speaker, beginning at 7:30 PM will be Adam Tuznik of Clean Water Action in Pittsburgh. He'll review all of the projects Clean Water Action is working on in Pittsburgh and then give us more details about the proposed Cracker Plant in Beaver County and the Marcellus Shale industry in general.
Mark your calendar for Thursday evening, December 15, 2016 for a Public Hearing about the proposed Cracker Plant in Beaver County at the Central Valley High School, 160 Baker Road, Monaca, PA 15061 from 5:00 to 8:00 PM. Three minutes of public comment is welcome as long as you register beforehand.....
Blessings Y'all and see you in December at the library!
