World Food Day is observed all over the world on October 16. It's objective is to eradicate Hunger by spreading awareness among the people.
But with the rampant abuse of environment for the sake of Development, rainfall has become scarce. Groundwater levels are depleting. All these factors are to pondered before we think of eradicating Hunger.
It applies to India too. Due to reduced rainfall, it has become a herculean task for a farmer to grow his crops. For this reason farmers are forced to resort to chemical based agriculture. The chemical used for farming are ridden with toxins, which further lead to poisoning the food. The traders started using artificial colors to the vegetables and artificial ways to ripen the fruits.
As far as I'm concerned, I'm aware that I'm eating poison, not food. But I don't have any option. Some consolation for me is, I eat more pulses. and I eat only home food.
Not only we eating poison, we are drinking poison, we are breathing poison. We have not any option. Pulses are also not free from poison. You can cook food at home you can't grow these at home. The best solution of it is use these with care. Use old grains and try to grow some vegetable at home. Filter water properly.
I agree. We don't have any option. Even old grains also not easily available except in faraway village fairs. In these fast paced life, it is not possible. But as you said, one should exercise utmost care in using these foods. That is the only option left to us.
Always purchase whole grains and store them for one year. In this way you will get old grains. Sock pluses at least 6 hours and that use these.
Purchasing whole grains and storing them for one year is thing about which i had no idea.. Of course soaking the pulses 6 hours before use, is what we too do here,
Here purchasing grain for whole year is very common. Wheat is our principal grain. Mix 20Ml. cow urine in water and soak vegetable and fruits in it for 10 minutes, yours vegetable and fruit will free from harmful insecticides.
