World Food Day is October 16th!
Food brings families & friends together to share in the delights of eating. When we celebrate Holidays, birthdays & special occasions, or just to appease our anxieties, it’s about so much more than just ingesting sustenance.
Further, the growing & production of food provides commercial growth.
Poor nutrition or lazy overeating, though, has promoted disease & obesity. The vast availability of food containing excess sugars, high fat & preservatives, and lack of exercise has put the young in jeopardy of obesity, diabetes, heart failure, stroke & early death.
Healthy eating can help to avoid stroke, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, constipation, anemia, cavities, eye problems & memory loss.
In some parts of the world, starving is a way of life, and children walk around with bloated stomachs for lack of proper nutrition. Mother can’t nurse their babies because of lack of sufficient food & clean water. Meanwhile, in Canada, the USA and numerous other countries, many eat too much & suffer as a consequence. The results can be fad diets that don’t work over the long term.
There has to be a balance where we feed the best food to our people & strive to donate know-how & skills to assist the poor countries to grow, harvest & consume better & more food. That way, they can eat better & have pure water, even in harsh, hot or colder climates.
What a fabulous achievement this would be. World Food Day is a way to remind us of these pressing needs around the world, as well as in impoverished areas of our own country.
