According to scientists at the United States
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), ecological imbalance triggered by
global warming is accelerating the spread of zoonotic diseases.
environmental health scientist Dr. Montira Pongsiri stated, “Dramatic
changes to the environment are triggering major alterations to human
disease patterns ...”
The recent eruption of swine flu that came
from a mixing of animal-borne viruses is just one of the emerging
diseases that concerns EPA scientists, who also cited malaria, West Nile
disease and others that are on the rise due to such factors as warming
climate and changes in agricultural practices.
Over 300 new
diseases have been identified since 1940, with 60% that have crossed
from animals to humans. Scientists at the US Environmental Protection
Agency, we appreciate your efforts to inform the public about the spread
of zoonotic diseases that pose a threat to all of us. Let us all choose
to live more lightly and thus protect our planetary home, especially by
selecting the safe and immune-boosting plant-based foods.
Master Ching Hai has many times mentioned the need for humans to halt
the consumption of animals to avoid related illnesses, as in an August
2009 videoconference in Thailand.
Supreme Master Ching Hai: The swine flu is by far not the
only scary disease - that also comes from or is spread by humans’ cruel
treatment of animals. Avian flu, tuberculosis, Listeria, Crohn’s
disease, mad cow disease, campylobacter, Staphylococcus aureus, etc.,
etc. And now, we have its more dangerous form, called MRSA, namely http://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/deadly-animal-diseases-poised-to-infect-humans-1856777.html
Staphylococcus aureus; it’s a “superbug” – meaning there is no
antibiotic to cure it, no antibiotic for this superbug.
diseases arose because we over-breed animals and create the conditions
for the diseases to form and spread. Other diseases came from hunting.
the killer of 25 million people since 1981, is from humans’ consumption
of primates. So, all these diseases, not just the swine flu, could be
prevented if only humans turn away from such unhealthy, cruel, violent
habits – the habits of raising, hunting, and eating animal flesh. It has
be stopped, the consuming of animal flesh.
