have developed the following model:
need food with proteins. Protein needs are for building the
body and are high for the growing children. We need less proteins
as we stop growing.
need to get higher calories and higher proteins if the food
has nitrates, nitrites and other non-protein-nitrogen(NPN) compounds.
This method is costly and cannot be used when the nitrate intake
goes up beyond a point. Proteins also come often with an additional
load of NPN.
affect our creativity. Our behaviour gets seriously affected
due to NPN. All the problems with sex,crime and violence are
due to NPN entering our bodies through polluted food, water
that cause diseases(inclusive of viruses) and pests(that suck
our blood, for example), are the fire-fighters that detect,
warn and correct our NPN. They are unpleasant only to warn us.
Body illnesses keep us at home/hospitals and thus protect the
society from our disturbed behaviour.
with the disease symptoms and the causative pathogens allows
the disturbed people to cause damage to the society and to the
environment. NPN levels can rise and a new disease surfaces.
Most of the emerging diseases have no cures today because the
fire-fighters(the pathogens) mutate and cause the drugs obsolete.
NOx levels in the air, due to increased combustion and incineration
activities by man, and use of chemical fertilisers with N are
the chief causes of NPN pollution of water, soil,food and man.
spoilage is due to NPN and is the cause of increasing waste
respiration increases due to NPN in the organics and this is
a loss for the soil. The need for composting and vermicomposting
arises due to NPN in organics. Pollution due to sewage and other
wastewaters is also due to the NPN. NPN can be best managed
with ecological methods, than by the conventional wasteful methods.
- Vermiculture is a process of producing food without the NPN
problems. It is the basis for creative thinking and culture.
Historically, regions that had healthy agriculture allowed the
culture and human progress.
cancer and other problems are due to NPN. There are several
websites on this, chief being http://www.virusmyth.com
This model was developed with the tools of Eco-Logic during my six visits to the USA during 1994-1996 and I am grateful to all of my American friends for their valuable time and creative discussions that helped a lot in this task
