Here is a piece from the writings of Dr. Mark A. Sircus Ac., OMD. He is the director of the International Medical Veritas Association (IMVA)http://www.imva.info/ and is a very talented writer.
A typical third world family which has a monthly food budget of about $100 has discovered that the money buys only about two-thirds of what it used to, so family’s meals are quickly becoming smaller and more basic.
Already some 800 million people around the world suffer from chronic food shortages, millions more though are now going hungry because of the widening food crisis. Rising food prices hit the urban poor the hardest, those who throng the slums of sprawling capitals such as Lagos, Nigeria; Manila, Philippines; and Caracas, Venezuela. Yet it is hitting plenty of people in the United States with more and more people struggling to pay their grocery bills.
Meanwhile, the price of oil has jumped, raising the cost of producing crops and feeding livestock and causing an increase in grocery bills here and abroad, which through the recent months has sparked riots and protests in at least two dozen countries. At a moment when corn should be almost waist-high in Iowa, the country’s top-producing corn state, estimates are that 5 million acres across the Midwest have been ruined and will not produce a crop this year. The potential for massive food riots breaking out around the world in the coming months is increasing.
A breakdown anywhere in the food chain sets dire consequences in motion.
The floods will mean more food inflation, not only for U.S. consumers, but also for dozens of countries that buy American grain. The United States exports 54 percent of the world’s corn, 36 percent of its soybeans and 23 percent of its wheat. The floods mean that millions must starve and die. The human race is going to quickly be confronted with a brutal form of math when it comes to the supply and demand of food.
In many cities in the United States during the Great Depression there was food but many people had no money to buy it. People starved in the streets against the background of stores selling a variety of foodstuffs.
“Few people know about five million American farmers (about a million families) whom banks ousted from them lands because of debts. The U.S. government did not provide them with land, work, social aid, pension –- nothing,” wrote Boris Borisov, in his article titled “The American Famine.”
“Every sixth American farmer was affected by famine. People were forced to leave their homes and go somewhere without any money and any property. They found themselves in the middle of nowhere enveloped in massive unemployment, famine and gangsterism.”
That’s right; The Great Depression was not just rich cats jumping off of high buildings. Millions suffered and died.
Every civilization in history has collapsed. Why should ours be any different?
Green Gold is the closest you can come in the world of medicine and nutrition to crystallized light meaning its valuable stuff. It is actually better than regular gold because in the case of Green Gold, you can eat it. What I am talking about is spirulina and my advice is buy it, buy as much of it as you can afford. It has a shelf life of two years or more if you buy it in powder or tablet form. It will bring you a lot of security and piece of mind and even healing if you are sick or tired of the almost overwhelming stress from life lived in our most recent modern era.
Spirulina‘s growth rates are very high. Its rapid growth means spirulina protein needs 20 times less land than soybeans, 40 times less than corn, and 200 times less than beef production. Spirulina offers more nutrition per acre than any other food, but doesn’t even need fertile soil. In a shallow pond in an ideal environment, spirulina can double its biomass every 2 to 5 days.
Forests help absorb carbon dioxide. Trees are the best land plants for fixing carbon, from 1 to 4 tons per hectare per year. Spirulina is even more efficient. In the California desert, spirulina fixes 6.3 tons of carbon per hectare per year and produces 16.8 tons of oxygen. In the tropics it is 2.5 times more productive.
If industrialized civilization does fall, the urban masses — half the world’s population — will be most vulnerable. We are entering an era where there is a great unraveling of certain things long taken for granted. Certainly we are going to be challenged in ways we can hardly imagine.
