Mad Cow Disease IS Back, OR How Long Has It Been Here , Part 2

posted by Dr. Ad Versery Bored @ 17:53 PM
April 26, 2012

It is important that our readers know several answers concerning Mad Cow Disease: 1) What the government is, or should be, doing to prevent it from coming into human populations; 2) How long has it really been active in the United States; 3) How can it affect human beings; and 4) What can people to to avoid it.

First: Obviously, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) should be doing much more testing. Random testing of less than one percent of all the cows going through slaughter houses is woefully inadequate.

 

Jim Avilla of ABC Evening News says: A big problem is that this infected cow did not show the usual Mad Cow symptoms (i.e. stumbling, unsteadiness, loss of weight, change in behavior, low milk production, etc.). Without these symptoms, and with little testing, how can infected cows be detected?

Avilla also says that the USDA should not be so confident that its system of safety rules is working, because it has been proven that often slaughter houses do not follow them. Last year some 131 plants in 36 states violated those rules.

Second: Because of the lack of symptoms in infected cows, and because it takes years for the disease to develop within the human body, no one can really say just how long Mad Cow Disease (MCD) has been in this country.

Elizabeth Cohen of CNN posits that it takes some 15 years for a person to show signs of MCD. Therefore, she writes, “once a person exhibits signs of the disease, it is way too late to take the meat out of the food system.”

The first new case of MCD was discovered in 2006. That infected cow was imported from Canada in 2001. So what other animals could have been affected in that five year period? The owner of that cow destroyed some 10,000 pounds of beef coming from his farm. But what about other animals in those shipments? According to CNN, Sarah Klein, food safety lawyer for the Center for Science in the Public Interest, says that the U.S. “lacks an effective animal ID program.”

Third, MCD can be deadly if it is in meat people eat. MCD is linked to a form of “Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD), a rare and deadly nerve disease,” that leads to a rapid decrease of mental function and movement. Symptoms usually start in affected people when they are in the late 50s. Obviously, by the time symptoms start who could tell when and how the victim contracted CJD or MCD?

Fourth, for safety’s sake, consumeraffairs.com advises extra caution: do not eat, brains, neck bones, checks, bone  morrow or any cuts of beef sold on the bone. Also only eat ground beef if it is ground in the store where you purchase it.

While we must protect ourselves, we must also depend on God to do so. As used Christian Bibles instruct: “Trust in The LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths.(Proverbs 3: 5 – 6).” And don’t forget to Pray Over Every Meal!

This Spring’s Dangerous Air, Water & Japan’s Radiation, Part 2

posted by admin @ 18:02 PM
April 10, 2012

 Wendy Weathersbee: Perhaps we didn’t emphasize that scientists blame this potentially poisonous Spring air on Global Warming.  Ally tells us what else may be in the air we breathe, and in the water we drink, all officially labeled harmless.

 Ally I. Feermeno:  Scientists are astounded at the radiation that has drifted over from Japan, even moving eastward as far as Massachusetts.  It has been found in the air and water in 13 states and in three U. S. territories.

 Dr. Ad Versery:  Yes Ally.  Mark Clayton of the Christian Science Monitor writes:  “Higher than usual levels of radiation were detected by 12 monitoring stations in Alaska, Alabama, California, Guam, Hawaii, Idaho, Nevada, Saipan, Northern Mariana Islands, and Washington State over the past week and sent to Environmental Protection Agency scientists for detailed laboratory analysis.”

 Sarah Newsworthy:  He adds that unusual, yet apparently very low “trace amounts” of radiation, were also reported in Massachusetts rain water, and by state officials and nuclear power plant radiation sensors in Colorado, South Carolina, North Carolina, Florida, and Pennsylvania.”

 Wendy Weathersbee:  And what’s worse, for those who use rainwater, because they think it is less polluted, in fact radiation levels from Japan’s damaged plant are higher in clouds and in rainwater.
 
 Ally I. Feermeno:  Yes, but even so, authorities still insist rainwater is safe.  Officially––although “low levels of radioactive iodine believed to be from Japan’s Fukushima nuclear power plant have been detected”––Reuters quotes spokesman Drew Elliott of Progress Energy, the utility serving Florida and the Carolinas: “There is no current threat to public safety.”  Officials also say radiation levels are “below those that could harm livestock or pets, which could consume rainwater.”

 According to the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, “One key radioactive particle being detected is iodine 131, a product of nuclear fission. Trace amounts of I-131 were trapped in clouds, and recent rains deposited I-131 in collection containers.”  Thus, because cows drink rainwater, milk in Massachusetts is now being tested for radiation poisoning.

 Wendy Weathersbee: Yet, the Centers for Disease Control insists:  “The levels being seen now are 25 times below the level that would be of concern for use as a sole source of water over a short period of time, even for infants, pregnant women or breast-feeding women, who are the most sensitive to radiation.”

 Dr. Ad Versery:  We will discuss researchers who don’t agree with these assurances.  When it comes to nuclear exposure, we must understand that humanity is in the end of time.  Thus, Christian messages require believers to have Noah’s type of faith:  “By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house . . (Hebrews 11:7).

Warm Spring, Dangerous Industrial Air & Japan’s Radiation

posted by Wendy Weathersbee @ 15:55 PM
April 9, 2012

Wendy Weathersbee: As much as Americans may be enjoying this balmy Spring weather, our research team warns that this unusual weather bodes danger. While over 7,000 warm temperature records were set this Spring––some from data going back to the 19th century––not enough is said about health issues in that air!

Dr. Ad Versery: Right you are Wendy. Pollen counts are up across the country, and warmer air holds in industrial wastes. Dr. Aaron Bernstein of the Center for Health and the Global Environment at Harvard Medical School says:

“This early wake-up call for plants and animals can have disastrous health consequences, especially for children. Allergies cost the U.S. economy $ 6 – $12 billion annually. The early heat stimulates growth in plants and the pollen season has gotten longer . . . while the higher levels of carbon dioxide in the air stimulate pollen production in highly allergenic plants like ragweed.”

Wendy Weathersbee: Right! And Michael Oppenheimer, a Princeton University geoscientist, and lead author of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, adds: “What we’re seeing now is not surprising in the greenhouse world . . . It’s just the beginning of our experience with the new atmosphere.”

Oppenheimer’s Climate Change Panel concluded: “ . . . an increase in heat waves, droughts, floods, severe storms and extreme temperatures as a result of human-spurred global warming, caused in part by rising emissions of greenhouse gases, including carbon dioxide emitted by fossil fuel burning.”

Sarah Newsworthy: Yes. And within that warm air are industrial pollutants and more carbon dioxide. SPX News Service quotes Saugata Datta, a geologist at Kansas State University who just completed a study of air over America: “In residential neighborhoods near manufacturing industries, a breath of air may be more hazardous than refreshing  depending on the location.”

Dr. Datta’s research team found: “ . . .elemental metal manganese in airborne particulate matter – a combination of dust, soot and other organic and inorganic particles suspended in a gas or liquid.”

Managanese was thought to be either nutritional or harmless for human health. “But more recently that thinking is changing. Manganese is a neurotoxin at certain levels when in water, so there is a question about if it’s toxic in air, too.”

Ally I. Feermeno: Wow, guys. And now I must add that radiation from last year’s Japan nuclear meltdown are in U.S. air as well. But more on that tomorrow. The Book of Revelation makes clear that filthy air, laden with death, is evidence of satanic activity: “And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit (Revelation 9: 2). Pray that our leaders clean up our nation’s air!

Radiation from U.S. Aging Nuclear Plants & Now From Fukushima

posted by admin @ 14:10 PM
April 6, 2012

 Independent testing indicates radiation from Japan’s Fukushina nuclear accident has come to our shores sooner than expected.  Radiation detected as 668% higher than normal is over California in spite of assurances from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission that Japan’s nuclear meltdown poses the U.S. no danger.
 
 In “Highest Radiation in L.A. Air Yet,” Michael Collins reports results of testing radiation levels in California’s water: “One year after the Fukushima meltdowns began, these readings indicate that ocean-borne radiation may be making its way into waters off Southern California months before the inevitable tide of radioactive goo that will wash up. . . later this year through 2014.”

 Moreover he writes that one reason radiation in the Los Angeles area is rising is because of “the enormous amount of radioactive ‘buckeyballs’ filled with 60 uranium uranyis apiece that continue to be produced at the stricken nuclear reactor site for almost a year.”

 Even acclaimed nuclear expert Arnie Gundersen the Chief Engineer of Fairewinds Associates––who has said that Fukushima is ten times worse than Russia’s Chernobyl, and that at least one million Japanese will have cancer in the next 20 years––has warned that Fukushima waste can reach the United States.

 Another nuclear expert, Marco Kaltofen of the Worcester Polytechnic Institute and and also a member of Fairewinds, recently told the American Public Health Association that “hot particles are contaminating portions of northern Japan . . . [and] . .  that  auto air filters from Fukushima . . . are so radioactive that they have to be disposed of in a buried radioactive waste disposal site in the U.S.”

 Most important, when Kaltofen presented his findings to the American Public Health Association, he confirmed “the detection of hot particles in the U.S.”  Moreover, he posits that Fairewinds Associates “believes that this is a personal health issue in Japan and a public health issue in the United States and Canada.”

 Gunderson and Fairewinds Associates believe that––in light of the Fukushima meltdown– the Nuclear Regulatory Commission is not addressing major safety issues in U.S. power plants, including:  “serious design flaws in the BWR Mark 1 containment, fundamental flaws in the Boiling Water Reactor vessel design, and problems with detonation shock-waves.”

 Fairewinds insists:  “The NRC and the nuclear industry are using a flawed cost benefit computer code that underestimates the value of human life and minimizes property damages after an accident, which has the effect of justifying continued operation of reactors without safety modifications.”

 The NRC should beware.  Bible verse cards say that God gave His Son that we may have life, not death:  “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly (John 10: 10).  Those who through neglect take man’s life face horrific judgment from God.

America’s Aging Nuclear Power Plants Endanger Us All

posted by admin @ 15:21 PM
April 4, 2012

 We’ve had so much news traffic here at Earth End, that just like the newspaper delivery kids are saying, I haven’t been able to get a word in edgewise––a word that is about leaking nuclear power plants in our own country.

 It is known that a major leak seeped out at the San Onofre nuclear plant near San Diego.  While spokesmen for Southern California Edison claimed that workers were not in danger, environmentalists claim that this and other endangered nuclear plants in the country must be shut down.

 Gary Headrick, who lives just eight miles from that plant, and who is a member of San Clemente Green insists:  “If we don’t make them shut it down, it’s going to be too late.” The leak, from a steam generator tube, forced the plant’s temporary shut-down.

 According to David Wright of ABC News, San Onofre is one of “several dozens of U.S. reactors facing new scrutiny after Japan’s nuclear crisis.” Like Japan’s nuclear meltdown, San Onofre sits in the middle of wide earthquake areas.

 But at least 95 other reactors are in dangerous areas as well.  Based on Japan’s disaster, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission issued a report which found that 95 other reactors in the U.S. are in high risk areas for quakes.  And Adrian Covert of gizmodo.com claims that some “50 U.S. nuclear power plants are leaking radioactive tritium,” mostly from corroded underground piping.

 Edwin Lyman, a Union of Concerned Scientists nuclear expert, tells Reuters:  “While the NRC and the nuclear industry have been reassuring Americans that there is nothing to worry about––that we can do a better job dealing with a nuclear disaster like the one that just happened in Japan––it turns out that privately NRC senior analysts are not so sure.”
  
 And rt.com blog adds:  “Even after the nuclear disaster at Japan’s Fukushima plant in early 2011 raised questions internationally over safety regulations, the United States has done little to improve conditions since.”

 The problem is that most of the nuclear power plants in the U.S. are more than 25 years old.  Yet NRC just relicenses them for another 20 years of operation.  And the plant at San Onofre is nearly 50 years old.  The Associated Press (AP) says that some 113 “alerts” in nuclear plants since 2005 are because of aging.

 According to the Associated Press, the NRC has consistently weakened requirements for these aging plants.  Now, even the NRC admits that a majority of potentially serious safety problems have stemmed from “degraded conditions.”

 Leaking nuclear radiation puts the American people at risk. Such risks must not be taken for profit.  Bible prophecies instruct leaders to protect their people: “if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned . . . [their] blood will I require at the watchman’s hand (Ezekiel 33: 6).

Mysterious New Lamb Disease in Britain and Europe

posted by Maleekie Ambularie @ 23:16 PM
April 2, 2012

    Dr. Ad Versery:  I’ve been looking over the kids All Animal News Blog, and I think they have something about those mysterious lamb births in England and Europe.  Called the Schmallenberg Virus, it is moving swiftly across farms there.

Alastair Mackintosh of the National Farmers Union tells Cole Moreton of .telegraph.co.uk that this spreading virus ‘a ticking time bomb:’  “We don’t yet know the extent of the disease. We only find out the damage when sheep and cows give birth, and by then it’s too late.”

In Europe, farms have have lost half their lambs, while so far the loss in Britain has only been 20%.  A big problem is that ewes show no symptoms of the disease until the infected lamb is born.

Animal experts believe that the virus is spread by midges, insects that may have carried the virus across the Channel or North Sea last autumn.  But the actual source is unknown.  Officials are concerned that the virus will spread as the weather warms.

Presently there is no vaccine for this virus.  The disease gets its name from the German town, 70 miles east of Cologne, where it was first discovered.  It is not known if the virus can pass from animal to animal or from animal to humans.

Officials are already concerned about the effects this lamb disaster will have on national economies.  According to Moreton:  “Approximately 16 million lambs are born in Britain every year and sell at market for about £100 each. The effect of the disease on farms that are already struggling in the downturn could be severe.”

Mackintosh says that at the point that useless lamb births in England reach 50%, farmers will go out of business.   Moreover, this virus has spread to cows, goats and other farm animals, which could reduce and/or endanger milk yield.

Richard Gray, Science Correspondent for The Telegraph, says the virus causes animals “to abort late in their pregnancies, or has resulted in stillbirths.  While sheep show no symptoms, adult cows suffer fevers and diarrhea.

A bigger question is of course, how will ingesting meat from these diseased lambs affect people.  The Animal Health and veterinary Laboratories Agencies issued a statement about potential dangers to people:  “There is unlikely to be a risk to human health from Schmallenberg virus; but this is not yet certain.” But Gray insists that “virologists are conducting work to find out if it may cause any health problems in humans.”

Maleekie Ambularie:  Well we must remember to pray over the food we eat constantly.  Many verses in wholesale Christian Bibles admonish us to pray thusly:“Give us this day our daily bread (Matthew 6: 11).” Ephesians 5: 20 says “Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”  And the blood of Jesus is also our protection (Revelation 12: 11)!

Japan Was Unprepared For Nuclear Disaster––Is the U.S.?

posted by admin @ 13:08 PM
March 8, 2012

 A report coming out on the one-year anniversary of Japan’s nuclear disaster makes the astounding claim that Japan was completely unprepared for the earthquake and tsunami that debilitated its energy system and the nation.

How is this possible?  How can such an economically developed nation, handling the most dangerous source of power on earth, not be ready for natural disaster––especially when it is in a geographical area prone to earthquakes?

Findings of an independent investigative panel, initiated by The Rebuild Japan Initiative Foundation, and published this month in the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, reveal that the Japanese government, the Tokyo Electric Power Company (Tepco), and important related agencies––were all asleep at the switch!

According to Machines Like Us.com, and Sage Journals, in http://online.sagepub.com/, the investigation even reveals that “the tsunami could and should have been anticipated.”  But everyone officially ignored these possibilities.

Knowing that historically the same high water marks had been reached near the Fukushima plant, Tepco dismissed the probabilities as “academic.”  While those histories should have been part of final decision-making, the government had not made full disclosure mandatory.  So scientists aware of history were silenced.

Moreover, the plants should never have been built so close together, and the emergency cooling systems had never been tested.  When plant workers turned to operation manuals to find out how to cope with simultaneous melt-downs––nothing was in the book.  And these are just a few of Tepco’s crucial failures!

Of course, the Japanese government had many agencies–– the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency (NISA), and the Nuclear Safety Commission (NSC)––that responded too slowly to these meltdowns.  And it had another “fool-proof” back-up agency to insure population protection–– System for Prediction of Environmental Emergency Dose Information (SPEEDI)––but no one used it.

Sadly, the report concludes:  “It’s clear from our investigation of the Fukushima Daiichi accident that even in the technologically advanced country of Japan, the government and the plant operator, Tokyo Electric Power Company, were astonishingly unprepared, at almost all levels, for the complex nuclear disaster that started with an earthquake and a tsunami.  And this grave oversight will affect the Japanese people for decades.”

During this election season in the United States, when politicians mention the need for more nuclear energy, the American people must ask about this country’s preparedness for nuclear catastrophe.  In wholesale Christian Bibles, Ezekiel counsels:  “Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them (38: 7). God holds America’s leaders responsible for this nation’s nuclear safety!

China Contaminates Its Own Rivers––Steals Waters From Others

posted by Sarah N Worthy IATTWJ Member @ 10:26 AM
February 24, 2012

 Water systems around the world are dying. Whether it is aquifers collapsing from urban population drains, or industries and agriculture using more water than nature can replenish, or tap water laden with fracking chemicals catching fire, or water so polluted that boiling cannot cure it––Earth is loosing its fresh clean water!
 
 But of all nations on earth, the worse is China.  As it races to pass the U. S. as the world’s top economy, China is killing millions of its people with bad water.

 Water in China is so polluted that people constantly boil it––even bottled water––before drinking.  But bad water makes millions ill anyway.  Moreover, in all parts of the country, there simply aren’t adequate water supplies for either personal or industrial use.  And what water is available is contaminated with chemical agricultural run-offs, and large scale industrial throw-away garbage.

 Just this month, Tom writes in seeingredinchina.com that “190 million people in China drink water with ‘high levels of hazardous substances’ and a total of 300 million drink ‘unclean water,’ . . .”

 In an interview with BBC’s, “The World” Dr. Peter Gleick, President of the Pacific Institute, says:  “China’s water quality is horrible, really bad.  They have massive industrial contamination; they have massive contamination of human wastes because their waste water systems are not up to any sort of decent standards.”  Gleick adds that this bad quality may be beyond the point of repair!

 Usually complicit, even the Chinese government is arresting company executives for water pollution practices.  AFP News reveals this week that one company “has been blamed for dumping cadmium, a carcinogen which can seriously damage the kidneys, bones and respiratory system, into the river in a spill” last month.  And another company is charged with dumping paint pigment.

 AFP: “Authorities have mobilized thousands of soldiers to dump chemical neutralizers into waters to dilute cadmium, but levels of the metal were still over 25 times higher than the official limit.”  But are “neutralizers” safe to drink? 

 Chinese citizens are actually holding protest actions against their Communist government over poor water.  China’s many dams also affect the water supply.  So India is crying foul too, saying the dams are stopping their water flows.  And according to world-wire@ens-news.net,  indigenous people in Malaysia are also protesting because China is building many dams there to steal their water as well.

 Mankind is ruining the Earth to such an extend that God will have no choice but to bring the judgment that Bible prophecies promise:  “Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters. (Revelation 14: 7).”  Those fountains of waters are His gift for man’s life.  And for the sake of money and power, mankind is turning them into fountains of death.

Japan’s 2012 Hari Kari: Is The Nation Destroying Itself?

posted by admin @ 20:06 PM
February 15, 2012

 Several new reports coming in from Japan make one wonder if the entire nation is on some type of suicide mission.  The government there seems incapable of steering its population in the right direction, or to prepare for the next nuclear disaster, or to comprehend that another earthquake may indeed be coming soon.

 This can be concluded from several factors:
 
 1)  The Fukushima  reactor is leaking and overheating again; 2)  The nation’s economy is very weak; 3)  The government is wasting billions to pay unskilled workers to “scrub” away radiation; 4)  Instead of allowing communities to be rebuilt for the greatest safety, elder generations insist that their ancestral villages to be completely restored so they have familiar surroundings in which to die;

 5)  For this reason, a much smaller population of younger generations are resisting traditional respect for elders’ wishes; 6) A United Nations nuclear watchdog committee says that the country and its utility companies do not have sufficient plans in place in the event of another disaster; 7) No one there seems to comprehend that two quakes 6.4 and 6.0 in strength have already hit close to Japan, and scientists claim these are signs that another massive quake is on the way.
 
 Tokyo Electric admits this week that the reactor is overheating at 82 degrees Celsius, which is higher then the newly established safety level of 80 degrees.  Yet, the govenment says it is ok as the temperature remains below 100, and the utility company says that “maybe the therometer is broken.”

 In his New York Times (NYC) article, Normitisu Onishi asks:  “In a country where power rests disproportionately among older people, how does Japan, which has the world’s most rapidly aging population, use its dwindling resources to build a society that looks to the future as much as to the past?”  When one mayor tried to steer rebuilding in a safer direction, the older generation voted him out.

 In another NYC article, “A Confused Nuclear Cleanup,” Hiroko Talbuchi quotes a day laborer as he wipes down windows of an abandoned school:  “We are all amateurs.  Nobody really knows how to clean up radiation.”  Their job is to “clean-up” an 8,000 square mile area so that 80,000 residents can return “home.”
One critic says it is all a scam as decontamination has become a big business.

 In addition, economists note that the earthquake and tsunami, Thailand’s floods, and slowing global trade cause Japan’s economy to severely contract.  Thus, the central bank must do what is necessary to bolster its currency.

 Japan’s bankers and governments seem stymied with no where to turn.  As they wait for the next earthquake, depression is setting in.  Bible prophecies promise that those with the ministry of intercession can pray, asking God, in The Name of Jesus, to turn the situation around for Japan (Romans 8: 26 – 27).

Less Food To Go Around, With New Poisons Too, Part 2

posted by Dr Ad Versery and Frank Butterman Food Inspector @ 17:38 PM
January 20, 2012

Again, because there is such an emergence today of poisonous chemicals within common foods in more prosperous nations, we will have to make the story about less food available in the developing world as Part 3 of this series next week.

Our readers must be alerted to a major “food story” that broke this week, namely that farm pigs are greatly resisting antibiotics intended to protect against E. coli bacteria in pork.  Not only are the animals resisting even low doses of antibiotics, the bacteria in their stomachs also multiplied drug-resistant genes.

Emily Sohn of Discovery News reports that “even after farmers stop using antibiotics, pig mothers still pass their drug resistant flora down to their offspring for generations.”  Thad Stanton, microbiologist for the U.S. Drug and Food Administration, says that scientists were surprised when, after injecting antibiotics in pigs, “E. coli populations . . . went up by 20 to 100-fold.  That’s a big change.”

Moreover, Sohn says that test results “add to concerns that regular use of antibiotics in farm animals could spread dangerous and drug-resistant varieties of bacteria throughout the environment and into our food and water.”

Michael Reilly, also of Discovery News, adds that since modern society started wide spread use of penicillin in the 1940s, dangerous germ microbes have shown up “in sharks and fish at the top of the food chain from the waters off Belize to the Florida Keys to Martha’s Vineyard.”  Again, the fear is that drug-resistant bacteria in fish could end up in human meals.

In other “food news,” scientists at Harvard Medical School reveal that high levels of the chemical bisphenol A, familiarly known as BPA,  is being absorbed from linings of canned foods into foods the cans contain.

According to Paul Taylor of the Globe and Mail, the Harvard study, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, spikes fear of canned foods as BPA––also used in clear plastics, and dentistry composites and seals––is linked to cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, and other sicknesses.

Brian Skoloff of the Associated Press reports that heads of iceberg lettuce were moved from the shelves of 200 grocery stores in seven states recently “after salmonella was found in an Arizona field adjacent” to fields owned by the California company, “Growers Express.”  The U.S. Food and Drug Administration called the removals “voluntary market withdrawal” and took no other action.

Thus, while developing nations suffer from lack of food, in countries, such as the United States, where there is an abundance of food––that food is not always safe.  We must follow Our LORD’s example by helping the poor, and praying for God to bless our health with every meal (Matthew 15: 36, Mark 8: 7, Luke 9: 16).

We follow Our LORD’s example in Bible prophecies by helping the poor, and praying for God to bless our health with every meal (Matthew 15: 36, Mark 8: 7, Luke 9: 16).
