I have never been a fanatic eco-save-the-world-religious type, but I am (as I guess you are) seriously worried about the extreme amounts of dangerous garbage and pollution that ruins earth, oceans, air – and kills living creatures. Global warming, extreme weather and pandemics are some of the results.
What about the future of our world and the human race? Unless we do some serious changes in our way of thinking, we are honestly on the high road to extinction…
LET US CLEAN UP OUR LIFESTYLE
We must not lose hope, and we – each and every one of us – must do what we can to clean up our own environment as well as our own bodies. Living greener & cleaner is the name of the game.
POLLUTION AND NUTRITION
We have to realise that all the man made components that we are exposed to each day – in rapidly increasing numbers, have side effects that we know little about.
How does it influence our mental and physical health? How does it influence our absorptions of nutrients? How – how – how….
When you do research and ask difficult questions, you often end up with even bigger question marks. As a journalist and chief editor of the Shape-Up Magazine I have been doing in depth research that has scared me a lot.
RUINING NATURE HAS SERIOUS SIDE EFFECTS
The lack of long term, global consequence thinking in environmental matters, has ruined enormous parts of nature and polluted our oceans, rivers and our atmosphere. Short term greed by international mega corporations combined with corrupt politicians has led to ruining a lot of nature and natural resources of plants and animals.
Toxic and dangerous fertilizers, weed- and pest killers are altering and ruining our precious earth – the basic for growing our food. And the destruction continues at accelerating speed even if we have international agreements to reduce and repair the damages.
VIRUSES JUMP FROM ANIMALS TO HUMANS
Animals are getting extinct as their natural habitats are destroyed for economic growth and short term profits. Results are that they are under such stress that they can produce life threatening viruses that are transferred from animals to humans.
Covid is the last one, but we have had HIV and others in the last generations. If we don´t change, clean up and repair – Covid is just a taste of what challenges the human race will face in the years to come.
VULNERABLE PEOPLE AT HIGH RISK OF DYING
The current pandemic has shown us that a lot of lifestyle diseases increases the mortality rate if you are infected by Covid 19. The older you are, the more vulnerable of course. We cannot change our age, but we can change a lot of lifestyle habits that can improve our health and strengthen our immune system.
HIGH RISK FACTORS
High blood pressure
These factors are closely related to lifestyle, and can be improved by healthier eating, physical activity and reduction of fat, sugar and super processed foods with empty calories and additives. It is not easy, but it is the best medicine for body and brain.
