Is Disease Just Part of Life?


Originally written and posted by Daniel Roytas

Most people are under the impression that disease is just ‘a part of life’, but nothing could be further from the truth. There is considerable historical and anthropological evidence that suggests at one point in time, humans lived out their lives completely free of disease.

In 1902, Lieutenant William Safford noted that the Chamorro people of Guam “were remarkably free from disease and physical defects, and lived to a great age”.

Anthropologist Charles Hill-tout stated in 1904, that before European contact, the Chehalis and Scowlitz natives of British Columbia had “sound and strong bodies, free from disease”.

In his 1839 report, John Seely Stone detailed the health of the inhabitants of the Pacific Islands, stating “These islands, like others in the Pacific, were inhabited, at the time of their discovery, by a people of loose and licentious manners, but free from disease”.

Colonist, William Wood, wrote in 1635, that the native Indians of New England “reached 50 years of age before a wrinkle or grey hair appeared”. They had “lusty and healthful bodies” and did not experience health-wasting diseases. It was not uncommon for them to live to a hundred years of age.

When the first fleet landed in Australia, the colonists documented that the native people were in good health and ‘free from disease’.

Given that native people across the world were in exceptional states of physical health, their diets could not have possibly been causing disease. So what were they eating? Their diets were determined by what was available in their environment and what was edible (which they had worked out through many centuries of trial and error). They consumed a wide variety of fresh plant and animal foods. They ate locally, seasonally, organically, sustainably, and mindfully.

There are many people out there who want to point towards this food or that food and claim that it is the cause of disease. However, what this evidence tells us, is that it’s not the food in our environment that is making us sick, but rather the adulteration of our food (i.e. monocrop farming, pesticide use, processing, refining, improper storage, food additives, etc), and the deviation away from traditional dietary practices (i.e. eating locally, seasonally, sustainably, mindfully, etc).

It's time to get back to basics.

¿Es la enfermedad sólo parte de la vida?

Originalmente escrito y publicado por Daniel Roytas.

La mayoría de la gente tiene la impresión de que la enfermedad es simplemente “una parte de la vida”, pero nada podría estar más lejos de la verdad. Existe considerable evidencia histórica y antropológica que sugiere que en algún momento los humanos vivieron sus vidas completamente libres de enfermedades.

En 1902, el teniente William Safford señaló que el pueblo chamorro de Guam “estaba notablemente libre de enfermedades y defectos físicos, y vivió hasta una edad avanzada”.

El antropólogo Charles Hill-tout afirmó en 1904 que antes del contacto europeo, los nativos Chehalis y Scowlitz de la Columbia Británica tenían "cuerpos sanos y fuertes, libres de enfermedades".

En su informe de 1839, John Seely Stone detalló la salud de los habitantes de las islas del Pacífico, afirmando: “Estas islas, como otras en el Pacífico, estaban habitadas, en el momento de su descubrimiento, por un pueblo de modales relajados y licenciosos, pero libre de enfermedades”.

El colono William Wood escribió en 1635 que los indios nativos de Nueva Inglaterra “alcanzaban los 50 años antes de que les apareciera una arruga o canas”. Tenían “cuerpos vigorosos y saludables” y no padecían enfermedades que debilitaran su salud. No era raro que vivieran hasta los cien años.

Cuando la primera flota desembarcó en Australia, los colonos documentaron que los nativos gozaban de buena salud y estaban “libres de enfermedades”.

Dado que los pueblos nativos de todo el mundo se encontraban en estados excepcionales de salud física, no era posible que sus dietas hubieran causado enfermedades. Entonces, ¿qué estaban comiendo? Sus dietas estaban determinadas por lo que estaba disponible en su entorno y lo que era comestible (lo que habían elaborado a través de muchos siglos de prueba y error).

Consumían una amplia variedad de alimentos frescos de origen vegetal y animal. Comieron localmente, de temporada, de forma orgánica, sostenible y consciente.

Hay muchas personas que quieren señalar este o aquel alimento y afirmar que es la causa de la enfermedad. Sin embargo, lo que esta evidencia nos dice es que no son los alimentos en nuestro entorno los que nos enferman, sino la adulteración de nuestros alimentos (es decir, monocultivos, uso de pesticidas, procesamiento, refinación, almacenamiento inadecuado, aditivos alimentarios, etc.). y el alejamiento de las prácticas dietéticas tradicionales (es decir, comer localmente, estacionalmente, de forma sostenible, consciente, etc.).

Es hora de volver a lo básico.
