it may be wrong to live this long though... i've been thinking and i see now that a fruit fly has a 24 hour life because who ever is reincarnated into one need the least amount of time in that body. so when we become human since my belief that its all about becoming enlightened it doesn't matter how long we live. people are living to be older in america but sadly america is just such a corrupt country. the society is so corrupt it makes sense why america has the most crime and the most prisoners. prisoners = people rebelling against the way a society and culture is. and sure if we live till 100 we can learn a whole lot but sometimes someone could just be brought back into more illusions. like a old person whose been in fear till they were 100. also if humans made a serum to make someone live to 1000 that person would probably commit suicide before he turns 1000 because life is suffering. the reasons why we die is because we are purified over and over again into a new life form.
No lies there, it's hard attempting to stay pure in a contaminated world. Only thing I can tell you is to do what you can. Contamination is everywhere and the people are causing it and not thinking twice about it. See the problem with people, they don't like to fix mistakes, they like to ignore them and hopes that they fix themselves which never happens. This is one of those 'have to learn the hard way' type of things, like global warming. Ultimately mankind will have to answer for their misdeeds even though it won't be for a while.
As for you, continue to do what you can as I mentioned. Use water purifiers, buy healthier foods even though they've been through chemical alterations. See that's the thing, in this world there's not much you can do but to go with the flow unfortunately but at least by making good choices you can whether the storm. May you live a long and happy life for making the right decisions.
Just do whatever you can... Exercise. Cut out as much meat and dairy as you can. Fish is still pretty good. But go for rice or almond milk instead of regular milk. And seitan is a great meat substitute.
I think you have all the right ideas already, you just need the budget to live healthily. Eat trusted organic labels, don't use toothpastes with fluoride, and do your part to recycle, reuse, garden, and definitely write to your lawmakers to express your opinions. Albuquerque, the city I live in, recently changed their water laws and now we won't have fluorine in our tap water ! The best we can do is try our best. I don't want fluoride to calcify my pineal gland, toxins from processed foods to make up any part of my body, nor even waste to be "produced" by me only because I'm buying something. I'd rather the world not be at all like it is. I don't know why people get so hostile at those of us who think this way. Such weird creatures humans can be.
It's more about your diet and exercise. As long as you exercise regularly and eat relatively small portions and a healthy balance of protein, fat, and carbohydrates then you should be good. But diet is most important. Look into bodybuilding, if anything you will learn about nutrition. Maybe research Okinawan diets. I'm from Okinawa and people here are known to live extremely long lives and I have seen firsthand old people outside still jogging and running when younger people in the states can't even walk up a flight of steps.
Consider this: All the things you've listed as unhealthy weren't around a couple hundred years ago. The average person can be assumed to live up to 80 now, and even 90 or 100 isn't that uncommon anymore. A couple hundred years ago you'd be lucky to live to 30 or 40. There are still many countries in the world "living off the land" that have incredibly short life spans compared to ours.
Things aren't poison just because we added it in. Everything you've listed is in such low quantity that no one gets sick off of it, just getting the benefits. It's like vitamins in our food. You can die of vitamin toxicity, but it never happens because no one eats enough fruit in a day to reach it.
Much of which includes changes in how we produce food, such as GMOs. A lot of modern healthcare is taking something dangerous (viruses, for instance) and utilizing them in a way that our body can handle and adapt to, which ultimately makes us stronger.
If you were to compare the place you're living in right now to other parts of the world, it's not as bad as you think. Believe me, I came from the Philippines, born and raised there but grew up for the last 16 years in Canada, and honestly, I'd have to say that the air is still cleaner here than over there. I don't know what part of the States you're living in to have so much unsanitation going on but try to keep things in perspective: as long as you are still breathing fine, can afford to buy food at your nearest grocery store and have access to clean water (as far as the eye can see) and wake up tomorrow morning and not get sick-- then you're just marginally better than the people living in Africa. Just remember that you can constantly rejuvinate your health by exercising or keeping fatty junk foods to a minimum, taking vitamins or regularly taking your meds. There are some things you do to learn to appreciate what you have at the moment and not feel so much concern with your health and that is to just walk around the park or neighborhood or maybe wander away from the city that the air is not so consumed with CO2 emissions LOL Sometimes just looking up at the clouds and seeing a lake from miles away and observing trees helps to calm me down. And I'm not even a big fan of the outdoors but it's the beauty of nature the captures your eyes for a moment that makes me feel like the world is still filled with wonderful things.
This world sucks X_X!!!! I live in Canada myself, away from the city and I'm not in too bad of an area but you have a good point with the telephone poles. We might eventually evolve to adapt to it but shit changes so fast.
I'll give you a quick story about where I live. I'm pissed off that they put chlorine into our amazing water last year or so (It's glacier water and ironically they polluted it when it really wasn't before) so they made 99% pure water... Impure. fucking retards. They're wrecking the world rather than fixing it and the 1% is so damn tiny anyways! Apparently the 1% is beaver fever (Fuck that shit I've been drinking this water since I was a baby) Also I don't like bottled water that's labelled "spring water." It has this earthy taste that idk if anyone else notices besides maybe my family o_o So yeah, maybe just buying filters for your water is your best bet if you want good water.
thanks for the advice iron giant ! i may switch to a smaller water company and do research on it. i definitely don't trust poland spring, they have these little mini bottles for kids and it says on the bottle "added fluoride for your kid!"
You brush your teeth with it and spit it out. Even if you were to swallow it once it wouldn't be a real problem. Sure a barrel of raw sodium fluoride (a ridiculous amount) could kill you, but drinking a ridiculous amount of water could too.
no they say to contact poison control if you do swallow it because you can die. i saw a story of a boy in ny who swallowed the water at the dentist that you rinse with by accident and he started vomiting and went into a coma and died
yes but at the dentist they use way more then whats in your tooth paste. but then they use way more in your tooth paste then they do in the water. the reason why you cant eat or drink an hour after the dentist is because you will be swallowing the fluoride so you have to keep rinsing.
if its good for our teeth then why do we drink it? what use does it do by putting it past our teeth? look at a healthy tribe in africa or somewhere where they live off the land. their teeth are white as ever!
