Neglected Garden Of Eden
Also regulation of reproduction ought to be absolutely necessary for their survival in the account of small isolated area of the original human environment.
In view of this, it's very significant that according to some medical reports (view the abstracts: 1, 2) vegetarian women are likely infertile (anovulatory, with reproductive system just at rest) that means healthy! Currently this fact is accepted as an anti-vegetarian argument. But now we see that things stand exactly conversely, and female permanent fertility is an ill condition to dispose of. And convertible female infertility is just to be acknowledged as the normal state of female physiology.
Modern findings have also revealed multiple benefits of vegetarian diet for female health. However, at present this knowledge is not disseminated intentionally. Perhaps, the reason is that benefits of vegetarianism allows make no profit. I can indicate only a couple of suitable web pages containing some information on ability of vegetarian diet to prevent breast cancer:
Now remember the unforgettable Ancient Indian female ascetics (Yakshi's but not only). They were distinctly related to Buddhism, the religion of non-violence (ahimsa) and vegetarianism following that. So, most probably, they enjoyed their true femininity owing to their true human lifestyle vegetarianism. Besides, they were evidently rid of the permanent fertility.
Incidentally, Yakshas' country (the Himalayas) was like human original biological environment, or like Biblical just so small and so isolated places.
Also the Aegean Amazons, the other healthy women of the past who live in small isolated areas islands, were evidently vegetarian.
The benefit of vegetarianism might be due to the phytoestrogens, the plant substances acting like female sex hormones, and due to the absence of cholesterol in plant food. Probably cholesterol blocks action of female sex hormones, as they are chemically similar to it.
So why is there no woman like Yakshi's and other Ancient Indian female ascetics and Amazons among millions of vegetarian women? Why nothing is known of their mass infertility? And why vegetarian diet has not prevented Linda McCartney's fatal breast cancer?
The answer is simple: there is no true natural vegetarianism among varied present lifestyles called vegetarian. People who reckon themselves as vegetarian consume either some amounts of some type of animal food or artificial remedies.
So, according to the Definitions of the International Vegetarian Union, the following types are to be mentioned:
So we see that there is hardly one natural vegetarian in true sense of the word among millions.
The cause of this consists in the difficulty of being vegetarian. Several days of really vegetarian diet will surely wake up a predator desiring flesh within you.
So, for instance, some famous people who had declared to be vegetarian, appeared later to be not vegetarian despite reports. They failed in adherence to vegetarianism, although they wished to be numbered among this honorable group. However, we see now that people who do belong to vegetarians are also not so as matter of fact.
These facts display vividly the difficulty and even impossibility of being true natural vegetarian in the present culture of eating. That means that something in wrong in present vegetarian diets.
The Buddha himself is mentioned in that list. He did not realize physiological significance of vegetarian diet, but he cared only moral purity.
True vegetarianism suggests a simple, easy, and absolutely natural rule having been violated at the original sin described in the Genesis book.
All the arguments pro vegetarianism cost very little as compared with somebody's personal experience. Several days of strict vegetarian diet will surely wake up a hungry beast of prey inside you.
The cause is that people who try to become vegetarian do not obey that rule logically following the basic principle of vegetarianism.
The latter principle tells not to injure any living creature. It is an intrinsic attitude of human race having been formed in the small isolated ecosystem of our biological homeland, where predatory lifestyle would be fatal for both the prey and the predators themselves.
Saying living creature, we usually imply 'animal'. However, that rule ought to be in force in the case of plants too! We must not injure any living creature, including plants. In the conditions of human biological homeland any consumption of plants or even their parts would imperil them and hence their eaters too (because of small closed area).
According to the data of human anatomy and physiology, we humans should consume fruits, but
an important addition must be made we should consume only ripe and
over-ripe fallen fruits that have come off their mother plants, but not plucked unripe ones as Eve did! In this way we would keep the plants
Needless to say that picking any other parts of living plants, such as leaves or
flowers for any purpose or purposelessly is also illicit in that sense.
The moving Greek myth of the abduction of Persephone seems to reflect the ancient awareness of the connection between this violation of the laws of humaneness and the corruption of female nature. Persephone (also called Core) was a daughter of the goddess of vegetation Demeter. One day Persephone went together flowers in a meadow by sea near Henna along with other girls. A beautiful narcissus caught her eye and she wandered away from the group in order to get a closer look. As she reached to pluck the bloom from it's stem, with a thunderous roar the god Hades (Roman Pluto), the god of riches and the King of the Underworld rose from a chasm in the earth, and snatched the maiden away in his chariot to his kingdom where she became his wife.
Analogous motif occurs in Indian mythology too. So all the misfortunes happened to the heroes of Ramayana because of Sita's desire for a deer a kind of violation of vegetarianism.
Just ripe fruits present what we need for easy and natural vegetarianism. The difference between ripe and unripe fruits is very great owing to fermentation the takes place after a fruit ripens. And just that what human being lacks to live on plant food only. I say this having 3-years long experience of strictest vegetarianism (to March 2002).
Here are words from the Genesis book stating first people to be vegetarian:
God said, "Behold, I have given you every herb yielding seed, which is on the surface of all the earth, and every tree, which bears fruit yielding seed. It will be your food. To every animal of the earth, and to every bird of the sky, and to everything that creeps on the earth, in which there is life, I have given every green herb for food." And it was so.
In a wonderful way the Bible carries words written in the bottoms of our hearts, although forgotten.
In these extract the opposite of mature fruits yielding seed as human's food against green herb
as animal's one is clearly expressed.
Only ripe fruits contain seeds able to germinate and are intended by the Mother Nature
to be eaten by animals that spread plant seeds, but neither unripe fruits, nor leaves, nor shoots, nor branches, nor other animals, nor their milk nor eggs. All these things have other natural purposes and must not be eaten and even injured. Here is the ABC of morality!
Wild animals do infringe upon this simplest but crucial natural law every day, but therefore they are just animals! They live as though cursed, in ever-lasting fight for survival. They themselves are preyed upon by others, they cannot stay calm completely, they have to be hungry for days, to run as fast as they only can, to sleep on the snow in winter, and so on.
The currently customary diet including animal food and green parts of plants blocks contraceptive action of vegetarian food somehow. Most probably, this effect of animal food stems from the cholesterol, which can replace estrogens owing to its chemically similarity to the latter. In this way, consumption of animal food causes female permanent fertility. This was quite necessary in the epoch of the mastering the Earth:
God blessed Noah and his sons, and said to them, "Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth. The fear of you and the dread of you will be on every animal of the earth, and on every bird of the sky. Everything that the ground teems with, and all the fish of the sea are delivered into your hand. Every moving thing that lives will be food for you. As the green herb, I have given everything to you.
But now, when that epoch is over, current state of female physiology and hence the meat- and green-eating practice is not useful any longer. Conversely, it presents the heaviest sin burdening humanity and womankind first of all as it causes female permanent fertility, which presents the prime source of moral evil.
There is almost irrational correlation between the
biological crimes performed by people and the ensuing punishments. And in an
astonishing way these punishments point to women first of all.
I have presented some examples of this correlation in the table below.
Thus, the original sin literally entails all the other problems of humanity.
The loss of the natural infertility also has been shown in the
Biblical account. So just after the Fall and
the Expulsion from the Eden
The man knew Eve his wife. She conceived, and gave birth to Cain... (Genesis 4:1)
However, any fermented plant food can serve as a substitute of ripe fruits. So, in the former times fermented foods like beer, wine, and sauerkraut (fermented cabbage) supported common people who had to be vegetarian for long periods because of unavailability of animal food, and who couldn't enjoy fresh fruits because of cold winters. And seemingly the people noticed benefits of such stuff for female nature. The following German folk verse shows that. It was told by an old woman holding cabbage and salt in her hands at traditional wedding:
The importance of fermentation and ripe fruits for vegetarianism also clarifies why female physiology submits to the
