2020 Poll

CO2e per Serving

When asked in a survey from Senator Cory Booker, “What issues are most important to you when picking a 2020 political candidate?”; I chose, “Climate Change”, and also wrote in the little box under “Other”,

“Vegan food choices, clean renewable energy (solar, wind), orchards, gardens and composting at all schools, military bases, public lands, prisons, hospitals, etc to stop climate change, feed needy, lead by example, and teach how food impacts climate footprint. Also grow hemp for oil, seeds, textiles, $. And end war.”

I replied to Senator Elizabeth Warren’s survey, “Go vegan for climate, health, economy, sustainability, hunger, peace, animals.”

choices

61jyzxbqgvl-_sl110_ I read the book, Our Bodies, Ourselves, many years ago (1976) which details women’s health and personal choices and I also read online about an economical choice that may be needed by some in challenging times: take high-dose Vitamin C every hour for 24 hours to prevent egg from being fertilized and implanted in the uterus. There are more books for women here.

A high fruitarian or plant-based vegan diet is most likely more healthy, puts one in better control of mind, body, and spirit, may produce a healthier baby, and may help avoid the following.

Note that “around half of all fertilized eggs die and are lost spontaneously, usually before the woman knows she is pregnant (ie: a missed period followed by heavy flow). Among women who know they are pregnant, 15 to 20 out of every 100 will have a miscarriage. Most miscarriages occur during the first 7 weeks of pregnancy.”  https://medlineplus.gov/ency/article/001488.htm

Common recognised causes include:
Abnormal fetal development.
Genetically balanced parental translocation.
Uterine abnormality.
Incompetent cervix (second trimester).
Placental failure.
Multiple pregnancy.
Immunological.
Infections.
Endocrine – eg, luteal phase deficiency, polycystic ovarian syndrome.

Most miscarriages are caused by chromosome problems that make it impossible for the baby to develop. Usually, these problems are not related to the mother’s or father’s genes.

Other possible causes of miscarriage include:
Drug and alcohol abuse
Exposure to environmental toxins
Hormone problems
Infection
Obesity
Physical problems with the mother’s reproductive organs
Problem with the body’s immune response
Serious body-wide diseases in the mother (such as uncontrolled diabetes)
Smoking
