["End World Hunger... and Other Raw Foodist Ideas to Save the World" - last updated: 24th November 2012]
I will start with a provocative statament:
There is way enough food in the world to feed everyone. This is absolutely true. The main problem we have is that the efforts of fair food distribution are being misdirected.
But there are some good news to come so read on...
Before we get there I have to briefly mention couple of other problems. Firstly, we need political will. But also, there are many choices we, as societies together, can make to ensure that no-one goes hungry.
Secondly, if land was in large part used for sustainable (biodynamic) farming practices instead of commercial and toxic industrial farming practices, the benefits for the soil and environment would also be obvious.
But the benefits for the human and the farmer would be even greater. Fruit trees and vegetables grown in healthy soil have all the necessary minerals in them, in sharp contrast to the plant food we eat today, which is often quite devoid of minerals.
Better soil means stronger plans, which means much better resistance to bugs, and a drastically longer shelf-life. But to get these benefits the farmer has to be willing to go beyond organic and study volcanic rock dust-supplementation and traditional methods of building up the soil.
Non-organic mass-farming and the accompanying mono-crop farming of vegetables and fruit quickly depletes the soil of minerals and spreads toxins in the environment and the food source, as well as serves to efficiently pollute the oceans.
Well, it is in fact fairly easy to end world hunger with the help of raw living foods, if enough people understand the big picture and are willing to take action.
In fact sprouts are the perfect survival food, with plenty of protein (bioavailable amino acids), minerals, natural sugars and life force. Sprouts are also among the highest natural sources of vitamins and they include female and male hormones as well. Sprouts of course have only a very miniscule amount of plant fats in them, which means that in the long term, some additional source of fat would probably beneficial.

Farming all over the world could be made more efficient. Currently many farmers are in a vicious cycle of relying on pesticides and insecticides, and the companies that sell those, which causes the crops to grow weaker and depletes the soil, which causes even weaker crops and an increased need for pesticides and other chemicals. GMO crops pose an even more serious problem.
By contrast, "wild foods" harvested from wild nature or biodynamic foods grown with sustainable methods in mineral rich soils don't need preservatives because they are strong enough to survive!
The direct conclusion out of this realisation is also that if and when you eat mechanically farmed, mineral-deficient foods, you need to eat more to satisfy your body's energy and nutrient needs! For example, a non-hybrid wild banana is rumoured to be so filling, that it is a meal enough on its own! Unfortunately I haven't had the good fortune to taste one yet but apparently you recognise it from the larger seeds it has on the inside. I have spoken to some people who ate those somewhere in Asia.
The point being: natural, wild plants, which have not been domesticated and bred over hundreds of years like potatoes and carrots, are much more nutritious, filling, and able to defend themselves against pests, than industrially farmed foods.
That's all I have to say, for now, about world hunger and how to end it. On a personal level this is what you can do:
Interesting question... Let's take the problem with depleting energy sources and crude oil, for example.
Did you know that coconut oil and other vegetable oils are an equally good power source as crude petroleum oil? Really. Cars can drive on it (diesel engines) and some islands in the South Pacific are already using it. Philippines in fact are in talks with the USA to start exporting it as biofuel. Of course there are other sustainable energy sources too, such as various other biofuels (including manure), wave power, small windmills for personal use, not to mention the many scientific attempts to tap into the zero point energy.
The raw food diet can end or at least drastically reduce our reliance on allopathic surgery and drugs. End of big pharma. End of fraudulent cancer charities. Point made.
Also, raw foodist mentality and information sources can further help to combat different toxins, such as chemtrails, electromagnetic pollution, etc.
Raw food diet and fasting also efficiently clear out old wastes such as drugs, energy blockages, and xenoestrogens, to name a few, from our bodies. See these videos to begin to explore this further:
Ken Rohla: "How to Neutralize Radiation and Chemtrails From the Sky, Your Garden, and Your Body"
Daniel Vitalis: "Looking for Some Inexpensive Radiation Detoxification?"
What are the mental/ psychological benefits of the raw food diet? There have been many reports on improved moods, mellow vibes and a natural high, as well as many examples of cured depression, when the body is fed high-quality nutrition and brought back to optimal balance. This kind of balance is something of much higher order than what the Western Healthcare system aspires to or even is aware of.
Admittedly, there are also many reports on reduced joy of life and energy on a raw food diet. But at least a raw food diet has never outright caused depression. I think that any time the body is deficient in essential nutrients, hydration (water), lifeforce energy, minerals, positive thoughts and vibrations, it can produce many symptoms, including problems of the mind.
That is why it is so important to be disciplined on a raw food diet and ensure that you eat enough, eat a varied diet and ENJOY the tastes of the foods you eat. Feeling deprived is not good for the mind whereas excitement of the new lifestyle is!
I have, in fact, written my own article on the various ways diet affects moods here: How to Control Anger/ Cures for Moodiness
Expanding on the previous paragraph and just as one example, consider the power of chlorophyll. It is sunlight stored in the green of the plant. When humans soak in sunlight, they 'photosynthesise' as well. But the plant can do that for you...
The benefits of chlorophyll are endless. Basically it is able to help transport oxygen into your cells. If the cells do not get enough oxygen, in order to survive, they have to start using sugar as fuel, instead of oxygen. This means that they turn from aerobic to anaerobic cells.
Understand, however, that this is a survival mechanism of the cells, necessary in the absence of oxygen. However, anaerobic cells have another name: cancer cells. In limited amounts the body can replace them or even convert them back to aerobic cells but when the amount of anaerobic cells gets out of hand, the result is malignant growth, i.e. a tumor.
In addition, anaerobic cells produce lactic acid, among other toxins, which get dumped into the body. Lactic acid, specifically, is very acidic. Thus the connection between an acid body and cancer has been made numerous times. Apparently, cancer cells also thrive in an acidic body. This is because the body needs oxygen also to transport acid toxins out, which, in turn, causes the body to become more alkaline. And, incidentally, it is also oxygen which helps to convert cancer cells back to aerobic, or healthy cells.
Now, we can see why the fact that oxygen is not only breathed in but also transported into the cells by the body is crucial for cellular health, for the ability to maintain an alkaline body ph, and for the body to stay non-toxic. It is also absolutely crucial for energy. You see, the cell needs oxygen to transform glucose (sugar) into energy in a healthy way. If this happens without oxygen, energy results as well but the body toxifies rapidly, as seen above, which again depletes energy. So for healthy, energised cells, the best thing seems to be chlorophyll as it helps to transport oxygen into the cells.
But the benefits of eating greens (chlorophyll), an alkaline body, and oxygenated cells go way beyond energy and preventing disease. This also improves moods and according to many, creates quite a distinct "natural high".
Keep in mind, however, that we are talking large amounts of chlorophyll every day here. It seems from various testimonies that chlorophyll can make people generally more happy and less argumentative.
David Wolfe explains that the body being alkaline really just means that it is capable of holding lots of natural electricity. He explains this in one of the videos on his website ("Master Cleanse Programme Upgrade"). And the body's electricity is vital for everything. For example, the correct electromagnetic charge is required to hold nutrients suspended in blood (as colloid). But this requires much more explanation so I will soon write it into another article. Meanwhile, consider these quotes:
"I would go so far as to say that if a community, a country, or even the world consumes chlorophyll consistently (1-2 times a day): we would see an end to world famine, dis-ease and war." - Queen AfuaAccording to David Jubb, each of our cells contains very small biological units called "lifecolloid", which have a specific electrical charge. If the cell's function is compromised (e.g. with too little oxygen), the lifecolloid turns into a dysbiotic lifecolloid, which cannot function in an optimal way. This becomes very interesting as we move into a better understanding of what David Jubb actually means by lifecolloid. According to him, it consists of biophotons, which are miniscule sources of light in the body!
David Wolfe explains - in more esoteric terms - that raw food opens up your connection to the universal energy:
"When you naturalize your diet, you automatically tune into a different energy band of life. You allow more information from your higher self to penetrate your conscious mind. And what you consider reality will change. Naturalizing your diet aligns and strips away chemical debris and toxins from the endocrine glands allowing insights from infinite intelligence to flow more clearly into your thoughts. [...] When you eat raw plant foods, your instincts become stronger. Your intuition becomes more reliable - clearer - and decision-making becomes effortless. [...] ... the only thing we have which is not an illusion is our intuition." - David Wolfe: Sunfood Diet Success System, p. 83.If this is true, the implications of such a simple thing as eating a specific diet are immense. Basically, IF it is true that raw foods first of all contain universal energy/scalar energy (and thus wisdom) in themselves - as appears on Kirlian photographs - and IF they are also able to increase our existing energy vibration and open up energy centres (such as the third eye), THEN what this basically means is that by just eating raw foods we will immediately start realising a paradise on earth. We will be guided by our higher selves and whatever universal energy connection they are capable of.
"Within three months of eating raw foods, I knew I had found a great key that could open and create many doors. I felt as if a great secret of the ages had been revealed. For me, it was an earth-trembling discovery. [...] Within three words - raw plant food - is a major key to unlocking humanity's dormant powers." - David Wolfe, as above, p. 13
I will leave the rest of the thought-process on how the raw food diet can end world hunger and save the world to your imagination! But there is a lot of interesting potential to explore within the raw food lifestyle, for sure.
For additional inspiration, specifically on indicating why the benefits of raw foods may be as extreme as many seem to claim, consider the benefits of just drinking natural (live and unprocessed) spring water, discussed in this article: Live Spring Water Benefits.
