Believe it or not Earth Day is almost 50 years old.
The first official Earth Day occurred in the US on April 22, 1970 to bring awareness to our environment and how our treatment of it affects our present and future quality of life. It inspired the formation of the Environmental Protection Agency, the Clean Air Act, the Endangered Species Act, and the Toxic Substances Control Act, among others.
But before Earth Day there was no regard to the poisonous by-products of manufacturing or how chemicals and gases could contaminate the air, soil, and water and cause mutations and depletions within the environment. And there’s still a long journey ahead.
With Earth Day we are attempting to detoxify our planet before it’s too late.
It’s the same emergency with our health and fortunately, a similar movement is happening. Although the progress is also slow, natural healers across the world are demonstrating that detoxification of the human body is needed on a global scale. With humans consuming more and more toxic foods and drugs without understanding how to safely remove them, the physical body only becomes weaker as we pass these weakened states down from generation to generation.
Let’s hope that one day soon there will be a total overhaul of the food, medical and pharmaceutical industries to prevent harmful foods, practices and poisonous medicines from damaging our bodies. Global legislation that will be created to force these industries to act in the best interest of the survival of humanity and not financial gain.
But for now, Earth Day is a great celebration of environmental detoxification.
Next? A revolution for the detoxification of our internal environment!
