Years of oppressive ‘abnormal’ society ‘norms’ leads us to violence

Societies social ‘norms’ are in complete conflict with nonviolence. This is a major concern for those who have attempted to heal the world through passive nonaggressive actions. Just in one day – I have rubbed shoulders with so many people who are unwilling to listen, learn or educate themselves, even though comprehensive material was given to them at no cost whatsoever. The absolute refusal, to have an open mind about a topic pivotal to the progress of the future of nature herself, shows a society indoctrinated with stubborn will to make no attempt to understand what it means to make life liveable for sentients. The matter of ‘inconvenience’ is always the answer – but at who’s expense and at what cost does that ‘inconvenience’ to change come?  Is often a question that they are unable and refuse to relate to. That is concerning. It is concerning that the human want’s change but is not prepared to work toward that goal in order to accomplish change.

To make matters worse on the same day several people snubbed me for posting on the same sex marriage celebrations in the US of A – a topic which I feel strongly that we ought all be happy about. We are referring to fundamental basic human rights here. If some humans are incapable of celebrating what should be everyone’s right and dignity, an oppressive law that should never have been an issue in the first place – then how the hell are we going to reach out to those same individuals to partake in what is morally just for all sentients, In particular animals who suffer so, those who still today have no rights whatsoever.

As if that wasn’t enough slaughter for the day, a really angry man, one whom I thought I had known ‘fairly well’ (not vegan yet), had an alarming and rather emotional outlandish ‘outburst’ of deeply embedded hatred toward cultures of ethnic groups (I care not to mention here – as it was painful to hear this amount of hatred tearing up his insides). Years of oppressive abnormal society ‘norms’ and ‘hatred’ bottled up inside of him  –  that even he, was unwilling and incapable of listening to reason without insulting moral integrity.

There are millions upon millions of humans in todays society who harbour so much hatred, who all, are looking for desperate healing and forms of escapism – most just haven’t come to this realization as yet. That energy could be channelled in the right direction.  I have the deepest concern, that even ‘welfarist vegans’ may become embroiled and caught up in the moment of violence, with the realms of ‘hatred’ so close to ones own doorstep,  just a fingertip away. Hate is an awful word – ‘hating’ humans is as immoral and unjust as hating animals. We could all aspire to take that word out of our vocabulary, replace it with love and abolitionist vegan education, to share it with others – we would be doing the world a great moral social justice. It is through this action that others will learn to love again, it is through this action that others will see reason and logic, it is through this action  that violence will end. Violence, an unnecessary evil inflicted upon all oppressed, still living amidst a society of ‘social abnormality’.

Not enough emphasis can be placed on the importance of soothing out, balancing, clearing, sharing with others, the importance of living life in the true vegan spirit, it’s main objective – to create a world free of hatred, free of violence, free of social oppression forced upon sentients. Years of oppressive ‘abnormal’ society ‘norms’  leads us to violence however, we have the power to unravel all of that. The world is vegan if you want it to be, there is no other solution.  Thank you.

How does Calcium, Magnesium and Potassium benefit our bodies ?

All three contain chemicals that help promote muscle relaxation and assist in nerve transmission. They help maintain a healthy blood pressure. People suffering from hypertension are highly recommended to include foods rich in potassium in their diet – Potassium (K) is also vital for other body functions that include proper functioning of the nervous system, kidneys, heart, and the musculoskeletal system. Potassium deficiency, or hypokalemia, can cause fatigue, problems in muscle coordination, weakness, etc. Foods high in potassium are beneficial for diabetic patients, as they help in proper functioning of the pancreas. Very high levels of potassium, or hyperkalemia, can cause health problems like kidney failure, so everything in moderation. Fresh fruits and vegetables make some of the best foods that are high in potassium.

A comprehensive list of such foods is given below:

•Apricots
•Avocado
•Bananas
•Beet
•Broccoli
•Brussels Sprouts
•Cantaloupe
•Carrots
•Cauliflower
•Chickpeas
•Dates
•Figs
•Kiwi Fruit
•Beans
•Honeydew Melons
•Nectarines
•Oranges
•Pears (fresh)
•Peanuts
•Baked Potatoes
•Prunes
•Raisins
•Spinach
•Tomatoes
•Canned Sauce
•Winter Squash

Though Calcium (Ca) is necessary for maintaining healthy bones and teeth, it also helps to regulate blood pressure. It also helps in healing of wounds, and in producing key enzymes that aid in digestion and metabolism. Adequate intake of calcium is a must for people of all age groups. The amount of calcium required by the body, increases with increasing age. As we grow older, our bodies need more calcium for maintaining strong bones. There are no specific symptoms associated with calcium deficiency. Just like with any other mineral, the intake of calcium should not exceed beyond our body’s requirement of the mineral.

Here’s a list of common foods that are rich sources of calcium:

•Almonds
•Beans
•Brazil nuts
•Broccoli
•Celery
•Collard greens
•Flaxseeds
•Instant oats
•Kale
•Kelp
•Oranges
•Papaya
•Sesame seeds
•Spinach
•Swiss chard
•Tahini

Magnesium (Mg) is an essential mineral that plays an important role in metabolism. Many people are unaware of the significance of magnesium and hence, suffer from health problems related to magnesium deficiency. Almost 300 bio-chemical reactions take place in the body with the help of magnesium. Magnesium is necessary for production of energy in the body. It also helps to regulate blood pressure in a natural way. Magnesium plays a key role in protein synthesis, and synthesis of enzymes. Symptoms of low magnesium, include heart palpitation, fatigue, fibromyalgia, kidney stones, osteoporosis, tics and twitches, diabetes, etc. To get the required amounts of magnesium, one should consume raw food rather than processed food.

Given here is a list of common foods that are rich in magnesium:

•Black beans
•Broccoli
•Peanuts
•Soy milk
•Spinach
•Tofu
•Whole grains
•Whole wheat bread

Eat well, do good and stay vegan.
