EGOISM AND MISINTERPRETATIONS
HAVE BEEN RULING THE WORLD
UNTIL THIS DAY
(Continues from Part-20…)
Misinterpretation-5: Rice is bad. Eat more of wheat.
Evaluation: Wheat grows well in temperate regions. Rice grows well in the Tropics.
People of the Tropical countries have been eating rice as their staple food since time immemorial - ever since man started cultivating his food. Likewise, people of the Temperate countries have been eating wheat products all the time.
Different products have become available nowadays because of improved transportation methods. This enhances the introduction of varied food types to people of different regions.
It should be certainly alright for people of the polar regions to eat occasionally food items from the equatorial regions..
Similarly, no harm will be done if the equatorial people consume Eskimo’s day-to-day foods for a change. However, these changes should not become the norm, for they may not suit the environmental conditions of the people.
Rice is certainly good for people of the Tropics. It will not give the Tropical living people any disease, or shorten their lives by any means. Polished rice has slightly more calcium (24mg). In several respects, parboiled rice (calcium: 7 mg) is very good for consumption. Parboiled rice (puzhungal arisi) will not produce gas in the stomach, and also would not give room for gastric problems.
Please feel free to eat and enjoy rice or rice-based foods without any hesitation, until your brain says “enough.” You will get enough energy for work, you will not put on weight, you will not get dizziness due to energylessness, eating plenty* of parboiled rice will drastically reduce pre-menstrual pain in women, it will not give white discharge, and will not give you any kind of disease!.
(* To reduce weight that may come through over-eating, the obese people should eat over-cooked rice. To put on weight, the thin or skeletal people should eat under-cooked rice. The sad thing is that, all obese people tend to like only under-cooked hard rice, and the skeletal people like over-cooked porridge-kind soft rice.)
The calcium content of rice is only about 10 mg* . The parboiled (puzhungal arisi, in Tamil) has even less: it is only 5 mg. or so. Therefore, you can afford to eat any amount of rice without any fear of developing blood vessel thickening, heart blockage, kidney stones, white discharge, lumps, cysts, fibroids, and cancers.
(* Wheat too contains only lesser amounts of calcium, about 17 or 20 mg - just about twice that of rice. Yet, in this sense, it is harmless. In other words, if people of the temperate region consume plenty of wheat, it will NOT give them any ill effects. Of course, even for them, it would be better not to grind it into an ultra-refined product.)
If you happen to overeat RICE, the only problem that can happen is, your stomach will become bulged.
Anyway, your brain will initially make you feel uncomfortable, and subsequently, induce you to vomit the excess, and that will save you from even minor mistakes.
I have made an observation: when you eat UNDER-COOKED FOODS MADE OF VERY HIGHLY REFINED WHEAT FLOUR WITHOUT OIL, it appears to create chronic constipation in many tropical living people. (White bread, poori, etc. do not seem to give any problem. However, I do not encourage people of tropical origin eating chappathi, especially those who have diabetes. Yet, others can eat it once a week or so, and not often.)
Under normal circumstances, over-ripe papaya fruit, chocolates, biscuits, groundnuts (peanuts), powdered milk, some of the pastries, are the ones that give rise to chronic constipation.
Again, chronic constipation, i.e., defecating slimy faeces in small quantities, several times a day, daily, along with the release of flatulence (i.e., foul-smelling gas) appears to be promoting the sugar content in the blood of diabetic people.
(The above understanding is just the opposite of what people have been believing all these days. When I heal people from their type-II diabetes, the first thing I do is to stop them from eating foods made of refined wheat flour cooked without oil, along with chocolates, biscuits, peanuts, powder milk, etc., for these too give rise to chronic constipation, and also worsen the diabetes.)
I have also observed clinically, chronic constipation (due to any of the above eatables) giving rise to psoriasis in the lower limbs – near the ankles.
Misinterpretation-6: High protein diet is good, and carbohydrates are bad. Therefore, eat more proteins.
Evaluation: This appears to be a silly statement. Carbohydrates yield ready energy for work and body functions.
Whereas, the proteins take much longer time to get digested, and they have to undergo a long process of chemical reactions before they can provide the required energy for work. In fact, the very digestion of protein requires some amount of ready energy.
At times, when you feel dizzy for want of food energy, you will feel like drinking sugared hot coffee or sweets. They would almost immediately recover you from the dizziness. On the other hand, if you were to eat some proteins, you will probably faint by the time the proteins begin to supply you with the needed energy.
Another undesirable thing that can happen because of eating too much of proteins is, that they will ferment in the small intestine and will release gasses that would bloat up your stomach, give you discomfort and gastritis.
We should not forget the fact that an adult human body requires about 60-70% carbohydrates, about 15-20% proteins, and about 15-20% fats and oils.
Carbohydrates provide the energy for work, the proteins for tissue building and its repair works, and the fats and oils, besides providing additional energy, has the potential to stay as stored energy, and also provide some cushioning effect between bones and tissues.
People living in the cold countries may require a little more of fats and oils, for they need them to resist the cold temperatures.
The fact remains that the tropical living people should consume more carbohydrates, and less of each of the other two.
I have observed that people in Malaysia have been consuming more proteins, essentially because of this erroneous belief.
We should realise that soy beans is not a native of the our region. However, we have now come to consume that in abundance, particularly because of the wrong notion that high protein is good for us.
Soybean is one of the richest sources of protein, and that probably has no comparison at all! Therefore, we have to consume that to a lesser extent than what we have been doing.
Again, let us remember that anything in excess can be dangerous.
Misinterpretation-7: Fats and oils are bad: they will increase the cholesterol content in your blood and will lead you to death. Cholesterol-free oils and foods will save you from death. Better to use non-stick pans to avoid oil usage.
Evaluation: God has given us a liver to produce bile juice, and gall bladder to store it until it is used up.
The function of bile juice is to emulsify fats and oils in order to help in their digestion for further utilisation.
Nature has not given us any digestive juice to digest soil and stone. Therefore we do not eat them. If we ate by mistake, they will get out of our body along with the faecal matter. (Of course they will be doing a wide variety of other harms.)
The cell walls of all plants, including vegetables and fruits, are made of cellulose material. This constitutes a fibrous form of carbohydrate. Our body has no capacity to digest even this substance. Therefore, they are removed along with the faeces – in fact, this forms the bulk of the undigested faecal matter.
The fibrous cellulose substance helps in toileting. Other than that, it is of no use to us. In other words, if we do not eat the cellulose, it does not give us any deficiency disease.
The cattle, such as cow and goat, have a digestive enzyme called cellulase. This can digest the cellulose cell wall.
This is the reason why we do not eat grasses and sedges, but cows and goats do.
Thus, if God intended us not to eat fats and oils, He would not have provided us with the bile juice.
The fact that our body regularly secretes bile juice shows that we should consume fats and oils, as parts of our daily diet.
Nature does not provide a facility incorporating in it a killer substance, for it would mean self-destruction and cessation of speciation.
Cholesterol present in the oils and fats are required for the well-being of the human body.
If we refrain from consuming cholesterol, the liver produces it by converting some other food substance, in order to maintain proper functioning of our body.
What happens if we purposely avoid the consumption of fats and oils, by listening to the erroneous teachers?
The bile juice in the gall bladder dries up to become a stone, giving us pain and other problems that necessitate the removal of the gallbladder itself through surgery.
In other words, if you do not consume oils and fats, you will develop gallstones!
Gall stones can be successfully dissolved by drinking a little of gingerly oil for a month or so. This has to be gradually increased from a drop of it to about a tablespoon a day. Taking it in the mornings on empty stomach works well.
I never follow people who advocate the use of non-stick pots and pans. Instead I use normal cookware, and use gingerly oil liberally for frying my foods, which form part of my daily food. I use palm oil for making murukku, papadam (appalam, in Tamil) and the like. Yet, my blood cholesterol fluctuates within the normal range as stipulated by our brains, and not by the physicians.
The moral is: Oils and fats are good, and we should consume them as part of our daily food.
