to scientists at the United States Environmental Protection Agency
(EPA), ecological imbalance triggered by global warming is accelerating
the spread of zoonotic diseases.
EPA environmental health scientist
Dr. Montira Pongsiri stated, “Dramatic changes to the environment are
triggering major alterations to human disease patterns ...”
recent eruption of swine flu that came from a mixing of animal-borne
viruses is just one of the emerging diseases that concerns EPA
scientists, who also cited malaria, West Nile disease and others that
are on the rise due to such factors as warming climate and changes in
Over 300 new diseases have been
identified since 1940, with 60% that have crossed from animals to
humans. Scientists at the US Environmental Protection Agency, we
appreciate your efforts to inform the public about the spread of
zoonotic diseases that pose a threat to all of us. Let us all choose to
live more lightly and thus protect our planetary home, especially by
selecting the safe and immune-boosting plant-based foods.
Master Ching Hai has many times mentioned the need for humans to halt
the consumption of animals to avoid related illnesses, as in an August
2009 videoconference in Thailand.
Supreme Master Ching Hai:
The swine flu is by far not the only scary disease - that also comes
from or is spread by humans’ cruel treatment of animals. Avian flu,
tuberculosis, Listeria, Crohn’s disease, mad cow disease, campylobacter,
Staphylococcus aureus, etc., etc. And now, we have its more dangerous
form, called MRSA, namely http://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/deadly-animal-diseases-poised-to-infect-humans-1856777.html http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/healthnews/6930130/Scientists-warn-of-rise-in-diseases-spread-from-animals-to-humans.html http://www.eht-forum.org/#
aureus; it’s a “superbug” – meaning there is no antibiotic to cure it,
no antibiotic for this superbug.
These diseases arose because we
over-breed animals and create the conditions for the diseases to form
and spread. Other diseases came from hunting.
HIV, the killer of
25 million people since 1981, is from humans’ consumption of primates.
So, all these diseases, not just the swine flu, could be prevented if
only humans turn away from such unhealthy, cruel, violent habits – the
habits of raising, hunting, and eating animal flesh. It has be stopped,
the consuming of animal flesh.
