Every physician knows that lentil soup is better than chicken soup

The Ministry of Health plans setting out “helping the public” by “informing” it on healthier food choices. Finally an official dent in the propaganda of the meat, milk, egg and fish industry? Not so. Our ‘Ministry of Health’ wants to deceive the public rather than inform it.

Lentil soup is better than chicken soup regarding your health, your wealth and the environment. But ‘health’ officials don’t want you to know. They want to begin labeling “fruits, vegetables, whole grains, dairy products, chicken, fish and some beef” as healthy. They should be sued for fraud. Seriously. Why are cigarettes not on the list?

Stand out not by serving something expensive but something really tasty.

No one needs to be told that fruits, most vegetables, whole grains and legumes are health-supporting when eaten in moderation. They also want to start labeling as bad, “processed foods, candies and sweet drinks” as if no one knows. So this whole campaign is only yet another promotion and false affirmation of the animal-based foods industry.

The truth is that animal-based foods are not good for us or the climate. Nor are extra-refined “foods,” too much salt, too many calories, white flour produce, white rice and alcohol. Truth is also that non-foods as white bread and milk in Israel are still sold below the cost price through state subsidies.

Improve your health by eating less animal-based produce.

* When we eat food that is rich in taste, instead of tasteless junk, we don’t need so much salt. * When our food contains enough fiber, we need to chew, so that we don’t need to overeat to feel satisfied and will also have less blood sugar, blood pressure, heart, (prostate) and bowel trouble. * And with real friends to meet, we won’t need to escape life and its feelings with drugs like salt, sugar, alcohol, cigarettes, porno and TV.

Just have good food and good friends that you don’t need to spice things up.

Let’s give them the benefit of the doubt that they do know about health. But that would mean that they plan to spread this dangerous propaganda for financial reasons. Maybe they’re even bribed? Let’s sue them. That should have an impact on people who like money more than truth.


I’m a vegan for almost 9 years

About the Author
The author is a fetal survivor of the pharmaceutical industry (DES - Diethylstilbestrol), born in 1953 to two Dutch survivors who met in the largest concentration camp in the Netherlands, Westerbork, and holds a BA in medicine (University of Amsterdam). He taught Re-evaluation Co-counseling, became a social activist, became religious, made Aliyah, and raised three wonderful kids. He wrote an unpublished tome about Jewish Free Will. He's a vegan for 8 years now. He's an Orthodox Jew but not a rabbi. * His most influential teachers (chronologically) are: his parents, Nico (natan) van Zuiden and Betty (beisye) Nieweg, Wim Kan, Mozart, Harvey Jackins, Marshal Rosenberg, Reb Shlomo Carlebach and lehavdiel bein chayim lechayim: Rabbi Dr. Natan Lopes Cardozo, Rav Zev Leff and Rav Meir Lubin. * Previously, for decades, he was known to the Jerusalem Post readers as a frequent letter writer. For a couple of years he wrote hasbara for the Dutch public. His fields of attention now are varied: Psychology (including Sexuality and Abuse), Medicine (including physical immortality), Science, Politics (Israel, the US and the Netherlands, Activism - more than leftwing or rightwing, he hopes to highlight Truth), Oppression and Liberation (intersectionally, for young people, the elderly, non-Whites, women, workers, Jews, GLBTQAI, foreigners and anyone else who's dehumanized or exploited), Integrity, Philosophy, Jews (Judaism, Zionism, Holocaust and Jewish Liberation), Ecology and Veganism. Sometimes he's misunderstood because he has such a wide vision that never fits any specialist's box. But that's exactly what many love about him. Many of his posts relate to affairs from the news or the Torah Portion of the Week or are new insights that suddenly befell him. * He hopes that his words will inspire and inform, reassure the doubters but make the self-assured doubt more. He strives to bring a fresh perspective rather than bore you with the obvious. He doesn't expect his readers to agree. Rather, original minds must be disputed. In short, his main political positions are: anti-Trumpism, for Zionism, Intersectionality, non-violence, democracy, anti the fake peace process, for original-Orthodoxy, Science, Free Will, anti blaming-the-victim and for down-to-earth optimism. Read his blog how he attempts to bridge any discrepancies. He admits sometimes exaggerating to make a point, which could have him come across as nasty, while in actuality, he's quit a lovely person to interact with. He holds - how Dutch - that a strong opinion doesn't imply intolerance of other views. * His writing has been made possible by an allowance for second generation Holocaust survivors from the Netherlands. It has been his dream since he was 38 to try to make a difference by teaching through writing. He had three times 9-out-of-10 for Dutch at his high school finals but is spending his days communicating in English and Hebrew - how ironic. G-d must have a fine sense of humor. In case you wonder - yes, he is a bit dyslectic. November 13, 2018, he published his 500st blog post with the ToI. * He likes doing age-appropriate and age-inappropriate things and looks forward to getting to know his timeless mature out-of-the-box soul mate. * To send any personal reaction to him, scroll to the top of the blog post and click Contact Me.
