I may tend to be humorous from time to time, but this viewpoint that I read I was stating without any humor. I thought it was an interesting idea too when I first read it, and since even when I was a kid eating hamburgers and fish, and steak, and everything else in the normal U.S. diet, my mom always served brown rice with each dinner. Now, being macrobiotic/vegan, where eating whole grains daily is what they consider one of the most important things in eating a healthy well balanced diet, I liked that explanation I read years ago on why the worst world wars are ending up in Europe and why countries are collapsing there but not in China/asia. So no , I wasn't being humorous. this time.

From what I've read the reason we had the world wars in Europe is because there people eat so much made from flour. To make flour you have to smash up the grains to smitherines. So as a result people who eat lots of bread, cakes and pizza dough love to smash each other to smitherines. In asia they believe that eating rice is the answer to living a long healthy life. Rice and millet are their staples and they eat whole grains, therefore they don't smash each other to smitherines. I have to admit there have certainly been wars in Asia too. Somehow they seem to stay unified better than Europeans. Yugoslavia just got smashed to smtiherenes it is now main tiny countries(like grains of flour). Russia too. But China has remained unified for milleniums. It seems in Asia they see the world in a fuller way. Here we are too worried about our own tax cuts and tax returns. Nothing else seems too important. And if it is then everyone else should pay for it but not us. How we can stay unified like that I don't know. Maybe eating more whole grains will help.

I became vegan when I started the macrobiotic diet. I feel best when I've had whole grains in my meals and legumes, like green or red lentils or even Moong Dal. Some beans like Adzuki and Black beans make great soups I love to have too. When people say whole grains to me that means grains in unaltered forms(not including flours where the grains have been smashed up) . there are so many types of grains it is unbelievable. I always like to try new ones. I've tried many kinds of rice, as well as millet, amaranth, teff, barley, quinoa, wild rice, and Kasha. I find that seeds and nuts can be very nutritious too. I like to sprinkle unhulled sesame seeds, or hemp seeds on my food and if I'm getting a cold, which I rarely do, cooked lotus root seeds are a good method to help cure it right away. When more people start to eat vegan diets I bet the more they'll start to realize how pointless wars are, they'll lose their desire to fight battles, and peace will start to increase. I don't know if peace in the world is possible until then however.

32 years? wow- I'll be so happy when I can say that. I was vegetarian before i was vegan (sadly i had no abolitionists to show me the way and truly thought i wasn't hurting anything) so I haven't eaten meat in 10 years now. When I hit that long with being vegan I may want to throw a party :-) I bet you have some great recipes to add :p

I've been vegan for 32 years now. What a peaceful world we'll have when most of us, or all of us, are vegan.
