The bad side is that this technology
has led to the creation of powerful multinational
organisations that have so much money and control that they
are almost beyond the law of any national Government – often
they help create the laws. It is not that bad if consumer items – like smart
phones – are dominated by a handful of companies. May be frustrating but no one is dying.
Food production is totally different.
Think about diabetes and ask do you have a hungry beast
of the worst modern inventions must be high fructose corn
syrup, it is cheaper and sweeter than even refined sugar and
is virtually everywhere in processed foods from packed soup
to hamburgers. But it is addictive the same as tobacco, alcohol and the
drugs. This is
the hungry beast inside.
For a healthy twelve year old sugars
and carbs are great, it give them a massive burst of energy
as the body produces bulk insulin to release the energy. But this takes a toll as the body becomes resistant
to insulin and the pancreas (that produced the insulin) has
to works harder leading to insulin deficiency and
Diabetes here we come.
The excess sugar is then converted to
fat in the liver leading to the sister illnesses - heart
attacks, strokes and cancer - here we come again.
Professional doctors and dieticians say
that this can be stopped or even reversed simply by changing
the diet to include abundant fresh green vegetables - so
the fact is that diabetes and the sister illnesses far from
going away are increasing at an alarming rate making them
the greatest health issue of our time.
Partly this is because modern fruit and vegetables
are force fed using factory production methods so lack
essential minerals and vitamins.
The biggest challenge is changing diet
is easier said than done. Food must taste good and for vegetables that means
really fresh – home grown in soil with the need minerals and
My business is innovation and in the
1990’s I developed a very simple system, now called the
wicking bed to provide sustenance food for starving people
Wicking beds are now universal and allow anyone with a
reasonable garden to grow fresh and healthy vegetables.
I am now developing an upgraded version of the wicking bed –
called a wicking basket – which will allow anyone – even
with no gardening skills, space or time to grow their own
healthy food to grow healthy food.
I am writing three articles on wicking
The first looks at how carbs and
sugars, particularly high fructose corn syrup are addictive
and dangerous - but they need not be. Our bodies need sugar - there is nothing
intrinsically bad about sugar - it is simply that the sugar
hidden away in supermarket food is so highly processed that
it is immediately absorbed by our bodies leading to a sugar
The second article shows how anyone can
grow healthy food in a wicking basket.
The third looks at how to prepare and
cook vegetables so they really taste good. It is no good keep on telling people how healthy
vegetables are if they do not taste good.
