Clean Water Ė 18 June 2007

As I was reading about the history of sanitation technology and the improvement in health brought about by the introduction of clean water in the 1800ís, I thought about the way water thatís safe to drink is taken for granted.

Reading about the deaths, in this country, that in the past were caused by typhoid was a reminder of what is still going on in many other countries of the world where safe water is not available.

I also thought about the contamination of water that is occurring around factory farms that are proliferating. Isnít it interesting that the uphill battle waged by Englandís Edwin Chadwick and Americaís Lemuel Shattuck to improve sanitation appears to be compromised nowadays by powerful flesh and dairy industries? Seems like a day doesnít go by when you donít hear about the contamination of some food product caused by bacteria from animal agriculture. The only way to ensure that this food contamination ends is to go vegan.

"Joyful Curmudgeon"
An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.
