Food & Nature

"One problem is that in Western nutritional science there is no effort to adjust the diet to the natural cycle.  The diet that results serves to isolate human beings from nature.  A fear of nature and a general sense of insecurity are often the unfortunate results.
Another problem is that spiritual and emotional values are entirely forgotten, even though foods are directly connected with human spirit and emotions.  If the human being is viewed merely as a physiological object, it is impossible to produce a coherent understanding of diet.  When bits and pieces of information are collected and brought together in confusion, the result is an imperfect diet which draws away from nature."
