Eating Vegan Helps the Earth

Yogis for a Sustainable Diet

Amid all the hype surrounding Earth Day, a yogi can't help but wonder how much he or she, acting individually, can make a difference. Of course, the answer is that every choice counts, including riding your bike to work, composting, recycling, and consuming less. However, the factor that can reduce your carbon footprint most dramatically is the choice that you make three times daily: what to eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

In a 2006 United Nations study, meat consumption was cited as one of the most significant factors in global warming: Scientists declared that raising animals for food is responsible for more greenhouse gases than the entire transportation sector. And according to a 2005 University of Chicago study, adopting a vegetarian diet can shrink your carbon footprint by up to 1.5 tons of carbon dioxide a year. (In comparison, trading a standard car for a hybrid cuts about one ton.) Aside from the undeniable environmental benefits of eating such a diet, yogis may also consider the ahimsic benefits: A vegetarian diet spares the lives of more than 100 innocent beings per year.

This week, make a significant impact on your carbon footprint by establishing a plan to go veg several days a week (if not completely). Get guidance and some great recipes from this free Vegetarian Starter Kit from the editors of Vegetarian Times and the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. Patronize restaurants that tread lightly on the earth, or consider growing your own organic fruits and veggies in a backyard or rooftop garden. Finally, inspire us with your in-progress plans, or make a pledge to reduce your carbon footprint. Happy Earth Day!

Global Food Crisis - Rice Prices up 141%

A new crisis is emerging, a global food catastrophe that will reach further and be more crippling than anything the world has ever seen

Financial Post

A new crisis is emerging, a global food catastrophe that will reach further and be more crippling than anything the world has ever seen. The credit crunch and the reverberations of soaring oil prices around the world will pale in comparison to what is about to transpire, Donald Coxe, global portfolio strategist at BMO Financial Group said at the Empire Club's 14th annual investment outlook in Toronto on Thursday.

"It's not a matter of if, but when," he warned investors. "It's going to hit this year hard."

Mr. Coxe said the sharp rise in raw food prices in the past year will intensify in the next few years amid increased demand for meat and dairy products from the growing middle classes of countries such as China and India as well as heavy demand from the biofuels industry.

"The greatest challenge to the world is not US$100 oil; it's getting enough food so that the new middle class can eat the way our middle class does, and that means we've got to expand food output dramatically," he said.

The impact of tighter food supply is already evident in raw food prices, which have risen 22% in the past year.

The Value of Family in the Kingdom of Yah

The Kingdom of Yah Promotes a Strong Family Structure
By Ahtur Keymah

In the Kingdom of Yah we promote the growth and expansion of the family unit. Children grow up in families with both parents present and a strong support system in place.

Children are raised in household where Yah-centered values are taught from an early age and all the parents are involved in the nurturing and up bringing of the children.

This system of child development gives the children a balanced and sound foundation to develop into adulthood from. Also, as adults these children will become and integral of our society promoting the same values and socials systems from which they were developed.

Unfortunately, children who do not have this type of support structure are many times adversely affected. The effects of the absence of this support system have been well documented.

There are currently 14 million single parents in the U.S. today. They are responsible for raising 21.6 million of the U.S.’s children.

The statistics about single parents show that most single parents are mothers. Statistics show that 83.1% of the single custodial parents are mothers as compared with 16.9% being custodial fathers.

Further single parenting statistics show that single mothers are either divorced or separated. There are 45.9% of single mothers that are either currently separated or divorced, 30.5% of single mothers have never been married or 1.7% of single mothers are widows.

Previous studies have found that children being raised in single-parent homes are at greater health and other kinds of risks. The new study shows that these risks include higher risk of childhood sexual abuse. This especially concerns low-income one-parent households.

–°hildren from one-parent homes do need more communication with their moms or dads. However, the parents are often absent from the home, being busy working to provide their children with basic necessities. The children have to find someone who would be a parent-substitute with whom to communicate and to share experiences. Molesters take advantage of this situation and become friends to these emotionally-needy children.

Let us in the Kingdom of Yah continue to promote a strong family structure that offers the world an alternative to single parents and single parent households.
