  9. 9. Food Today & Tomorrow Food theorists 10/26/20159
  10. 10. Food Today & Tomorrow Malthusians/Doomsters Reverend Thomas Robert Malthus (1798): An Essay on the Principle of Population “population multiplies geometrically and food arithmetically. Therefore, the population will outstrip the food supply. In addition to cutting the birth rate by sexual restraint and birth control. All people "defective" in any way, who look or behave or function differently than the rest of society, should be identified and eliminated. Therefore, only those who are "normal," those who can make the greatest contribution to society, would survive.” 10/26/201510
  11. 11. Food Today & Tomorrow Food theorists: Malthusians George Beard (US Neurologist 1839-1883): "little removed from the common animal stock from which they (vegetarians) are derived. They are much nearer to the forms of life from which they feed than are the highly civilized brainworkers, and can therefore subsist on forms of life which would be most poisonous to us. Secondly, savages who feed on poor food are poor savages, and intellectually far inferior to the beef-eaters of any race". 11
  12. 12. Food Today & Tomorrow Food theorists: Malthusians George Beard (US Neurologist 1839-1883): This divided the world into intellectually superior meat eaters and inferior plant eaters— accounted for the conquering of other cultures by the English: “The rice-eating Hindoo and Chinese and the potato-eating Irish peasant are kept in subjection by the well-fed English.” Woods Hutchinson (Physician 1906): “White flour, red meat, and blue blood make the tricolor flag of conquest.” 12
  13. 13. Food Today & Tomorrow Cornucopian - Boomsters, Enlightenment Marquis de Condorcet (1743- 1794) Continued progress and provision of material items for mankind can be met by similarly continued advances in technology. Fundamentally they believe that there is enough matter and energy on the Earth to provide for the ever-rising population of the world. 10/26/201513

  29. 29. Food Today & Tomorrow Eating Habits A diet void of any animal products was actually called a "Pythagorean" diet until 1944, when Donald Watson, founder of the Vegan Society, coined the word vegan. Vegetarianism was first documented in 1848, most likely by an Oxford Scholar. 10/26/201529
  30. 30. Food Today & Tomorrow Eating Habits The baby-boomer generation, spurred by the violence of the 1960's and disparaged by threats of imminent ecological disasters, largely embraced a diet inspired by ecology and a desire to get closer to the Earth. Frances Moore Lappé's iconic book, Diet for a Small Planet (1971), was published, vegetarianism had found its way into mainstream America's collective consciousness. 10/26/201530
  31. 31. Food Today & Tomorrow Eating Habits Meat Eaters Pescatarian (piscetarian) Vegetarian: Lacto & Ovo Vegan Raw Vegan/Raw Food Macrobiotic 10/26/201531 Prior to Industrial Revolution Prior to Industrial Revolution Little meat consumption, nearly anywhere (compared to today's standards). ~1900-1960 Meat consumption rises dramatically in Western cultures as transportation and refrigeration becomes easier 1971 Publication of Diet for a Small Planet by Frances Moore Lappe launches vegetarian movement in U.S., but unfortunately introduces myth that vegetarians must "combine" their proteins to get a "complete" protein. 1975 Publication of Animal Liberation by Australian ethics professor Peter Singer provides the spark for the birth of the U.S. animal rights movement and the founding of the group PETA, a strong proponent of vegetarian eating. Late 1970's Vegetarian Times magazine begins publication 1983 The first book promoting veganism by a credentialed Western medical authority is published, Dr. John McDougall's The McDougall Plan. 1987 Diet for a New America by John Robbins provides the inspiration for the vegan movement in the U.S., while it re-starts the vegetarian movement. 1990's Medical evidence supporting the superiority of vegetarian diets becomes overwhelming. The American Dietetic Association officially endorses vegetarianism, and books by prominent doctors promote low-fat vegan or mostly-vegan diets (e.g., .The McDougall Program and Dr. Dean Ornish's Program for Reversing Heart Disease). FDA replaces meat- and dairy-industry-sponsored Four Food Group with a Food Pyramid, showing that most of a person's diet should be based on grains, vegetables, beans, and fruits.
  32. 32. Food Today & Tomorrow  The American Vegetarian Society was founded in 1850 by Sylvester Graham (1794- 1851), an early advocate of dietary reform in United States and the inventor of Graham bread, made from chemical- free unsifted flour. Highly influential, Graham promoted vegetarianism and a high-fiber diet as a cure for alcoholism and lust. Graham preached that an unhealthy diet (one containing the confounding variables of meat and white flour) stimulated excessive sexual desire, which irritated the body and caused disease.  John Harvey Kellogg (1852-1943) followed in Graham’s footsteps. Inventor of corn flakes and a process for making peanut butter, Kellogg advocated a high-fiber vegetarian diet to combat the twin evils of constipation and “natural urges.” Kellogg preached against sexual activity even in marriage. 10/26/201532

  44. 44. Food Today & Tomorrow Tamas: Dull, inertia, density, the force of contraction, resistance; leads to evil deeds, cloud intellect, give rise to disease, laziness and other evil qualities. Rajas: Stimulative, restlessness, activity; the expansive energy of growth and movement; creates perverted feelings, sorrow, disease, violence and tensions. Sattva: Harmonizing, balancing; promotes longevity, intellect and strength while granting pleasure, peace of mind, compassion, non-violence and equanimity, and saving the body, heart and mind from all impurities. 10/26/201544
  45. 45. Food Today & Tomorrow  10/26/201545
  46. 46. Food Today & Tomorrow Satvik diet: It consists of fresh fruits like pomegranates, apples, bananas, oranges, grapes; grains like fine rice, wheat in small quantity, cereals, pulses, nuts and dairy products like milk and ghee (clarified butter). It keeps the body lean and agile and mind calm and quiet. Fresh buttermilk, fresh green vegetables like spinach, green beans and green grams are good examples of satvik food. Although a mild sweet taste is considered satvik, a strong sweet taste as in chocolates and sweets increases the tamasik quality. 10/26/201546
  47. 47. Food Today & Tomorrow Rajasik diet: Spicy, salty, bitter, very hot and sour taste. Vegetables like onions, garlic and their spicy and sour preparations like ketchup and vinegar have rajasik quality. Wines, pickles, meat- especially red meat, and stimulating drinks like coffee and tea, and all types of alcoholic drinks are rajasik in nature. These foods increase restlessness, anger and irritability. 10/26/201547
  48. 48. Food Today & Tomorrow Tamasik diet: Stale, half-cooked, smelling, rotting, unclean, over- heated, oily, heavy to digest, canned meat and fish products containing lot of preservatives as well as cold pasteurized dairy products like milk and yogurt (except certain organic ones). These foods increase lethargy, ignorance and apathy. Frozen and preserved foods as well as hybrid foods also increase the tamasik quality. 10/26/201548
