Many people experience better health when adhereing to a vegetarian and/or vegan diet. I know several vegetarians and vegans which possess a radiant energy which seems far superior to many.
I think Daniel ate a vegetarian diet.
By definition a vegetarian consumes a great amount of plant food which is loaded with vitamins and minerals and enzymes. Organic produce is even better because the soil provides more nutrients. Synthetic fertilizers only supply 2 or 3 things. I can't remember what they are.
The beauty is that almost any one can grow some of the plant foods that they consume. And almost any one can compost some of the food scraps such as cuttings from vegetables, peels, skins, etc.
Limiting the consumption of fish and meat would most likely have a beneficial effect on most people. When consuming flesh one is consuming all the toxins which are in that flesh. Corporate farming methods increase the toxic load considerably.
Cooking food kills the beneficial enzymes. Most of the food that passes through my mouth is raw, unpasteurized, and plant based.

It's a new day of life granted by God in his grace, in which to serve and worship him who has washed us from our sins in his blood and made us kings and priests. I wonder if today we'll be able to keep on topic. I realise it's never been known in the history of the forums here, but miracles can happen. Any news from Gaza?
Israel claims that the Israeli army is merely reacting to projectiles fired from Gaza.
This is only a pretext for two main reasons:
The so-called Qassam projectiles are symbolic weapons that make more noise than damage. During the past eight years, less than two dozen Israelis were killed by these projectiles. In the meanwhile, thousands of Palestinians, mainly children and other innocent civilians, were annihilated by the Israeli death machine.
These are war crimes because even in war, there is proportionality and using excessive force, mainly against civilians, in reaction to minor provocation puts Israel on equal footing with Nazi barbarianism.
There are those who would argue that Israel has the right and duty to defend its citizens. Well, this is not the real issue, because one could argue that even the worst state in the world has the right to defend its citizens.
But Israel has been savaging an entire people by imposing a Nazi-like siege upon them on no other account than to punish them for electing a government that both Israel and her guardian-ally, the United States, didnâ€™t like.
In short, the Palestinians must die if they resist and die if they donâ€™t.

We Christians are to be strangers passing through, but the Jews are supposed to get a ready made country at the expense of Palestininans, with billions in foreign aid and lots of free tanks, planes and bombs from the American taxpayers? Meantime, we can't even put up a cardboard creshe here in our country. And if we go over there, we better not speak of Jesus. Does this make sense? Not to me it doesn't, nor to God. To the Devil and his plans for a world tyranny, sure it makes sense.

I intended to respond to your earlier reference of the "Haleluiah Diet." A lady at the Whole Foods Market told me about it several weeks ago. Also, I did some reading about it on the net and have cut back a bit on shellfish because of it. I didn't eat that much of it anyway, but I try to avoid it a bit more.
Drinking freshly squeezed vegetable juices has proven to be a great health enhancment in my life for the past 12 years.
Have you read about the alkaline acid balance. I think it is key to many chronic health conditions. You can find alot about it in a search browser like Google. You can find books in Health oriented stores. I read one, "Alkalize or Die."
Also, I have been avoiding fluoride as much as possible and have experienced great improvement in my energy and concentration.

John UK -- I oppose the supply of weapons of mass destruction to Israel from the U.S.
Ilan Pappe is an Israeli historian and senior lecturer at Haifa University.
Pappe is also one of Israel's "new historians" whose scholarship and writings are based on access to material now available from British Mandate period and Israeli archives.
Pappe has also authored, contributed to or edited nine books. His latest is the one this review covers in detail so readers will know about its powerful and shocking content, unknown to most in the West and in Israel.
He proves from official records how the Israeli state came into being with blood on its hands from lands forcibly seized from its Palestinian inhabitants who'd lived on it for hundreds of years previously. Since the 1940s, they were ethnically cleansed and slaughtered without mercy so their homeland would become one for Jews alone.
John UK, I am glad you are awake. We are called to be wise as serpents and harmeless as doves.
Many of our current events seem to align very well with Revelation and other prophetic passages.
The Rothschilds handle the Vatican wealth according to encyclopeadia Judaica.
The Rothschild sons (the "5 arrows") went on to capture control of the banking markets in the major capitols of Europe, culminating in Nathan Rothschild's seisure of control of the Bank of England in 1815.
We are in difficult times but God is able and He will finish that which He has commited through the work of His Son the Lord Jesus Christ. The Gates of Hell shall not prevail !
Thank you, Banned for the great posts ! Most of your posts are easily verified.
"Top Neo-Con John Bolton told Fox News yesterday that the conflict in Gaza could lead to a U.S. attack on Iran as the former U.S. ambassador to the UN exploited the crisis to propagandize for a new war." -- Paul Watson -- PrisonPlanet (dot) com
Pro 24:11 If thou forbear to deliver [them that are] drawn unto death, and [those that are] ready to be slain;
Pro 24:12 If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; doth not he that pondereth the heart consider [it]? and he that keepeth thy soul, doth [not] he know [it]? and shall [not] he render to [every] man according to his works?
A 66 ft pleasure boat, which had been trying to deliver urgently needed medical supplies to Gaza, was rammed in international waters by the Israeli navy according to a CNN corespondent aboard the ship. Former US Congresswoman and 2008 Presidential Candidate, Cynthia McKinney, was also aboard. For CNN report/interview:
Cynthia McKinney asks her former colleagues in the U.S. Congress to stop sending weapons of mass destruction around the world. She asks, as we are about to remember Dr. Martin Luther King's birthday, let us remember what he said that " The United States was the greatest purveyor of violence on the planet."

Just because poeple dont believe it doesnt make it not so. Pray for His elect that are over there who have to suffer for His name sake.
I agree with your comment except that I would like to ask all who have called upon the name of the Lord Jesus to pray for all men to trust in the Lord Jesus as Saviour . . . even those who despitefully use us and/or others . . . and to be a witness into all the world of the wonderful promise of redemption and peace which is the gift of God unto all who call upon His name.
In the US you cannot hear the truth about what is happening in Gaza from any corporate media outlet.
You will find that Israel was "forced" to launch its vicious attacks against heavily populated Gaza because of the "recent spate of Hamas bombings" since the end of a six-month ceasefire.
"Papers in Israel -- in Israel, but not the United States -- are reporting the truth: the murderous assault on Gaza was planned not only before the six-month ceasefire ended -- it was planned before the cease-fire even took effect. Indeed, the cease-fire was part of the military plan to decimate the civilian areas of Gaza; it was a hoax, a scam, a deliberate feint to buy time for military preparations -- precisely the same strategy followed by the Bush Regime (and its bipartisan Establishment supporters) in "going to the UN" to seek a "peaceful solution" to the "Iraqi crisis" -- when the invasion was already in the works." - Chris Floyd
"Observe good faith and justice towards all nations; cultivate peace and harmony with all. Religion and morality enjoin this conduct; and can it be, that good policy does not equally enjoin it? . . . . .
In the execution of such a plan, nothing is more essential than that permanent, inveterate antipathies against particular nations, and passionate attachments for others, should be excluded; and that, in place of them, just and amicable feelings towards all should be cultivated. The nation which indulges towards another a habitual hatred or a habitual fondness is in some degree a slave.
It is a slave to its animosity or to its affection, either of which is sufficient to lead it astray from its duty and its interest. . .
So likewise, a passionate attachment of one nation for another produces a variety of evils. Sympathy for the favorite nation, facilitating the illusion of an imaginary common interest in cases where no real common interest exists, and infusing into one the enmities of the other, betrays the former into a participation in the quarrels and wars of the latter . . .
Someday before Jesus comes back to the earth, there will be a period when the earth shall be ruled by Satan himself, through a man who is called "The Beast, The Son of Perdition, the Man of Sin, the Wicked, the Antichrist, the Abomination of Desolation, and a Vile Person."
God began to speak to the prophet Daniel about this coming time on the earth some 550 years before Christ (Daniel 11:21-39). From the writings of Daniel we are given some insight on this last world ruler. He will be of Jewish descent and a practicing homosexual. Jesus tells us that this wicked ruler shall descend upon Jerusalem, and that he will occupy a Jewish temple in that city (Matthew 24:1-24). This is detailed by the apostle Paul in II Thessalonians 2:1-12. Since the temple in Jerusalem that Jesus visited when he walked in the flesh on the earth was destroyed in 70 AD, we know that one of the signs of the Antichrist will be that a new Jewish temple will once more be built in Jerusalem.
The kingdom of the Antichrist will be a political alliance of many nations that will give their power to this evil man (Rev 17:1-18). Its financial strength will come from global trading (Rev 18:23).
"The news about the attacks in Gaza is beyond words. "Appalling" doesn't even come close.
U.S.-supplied Israeli F-16 warplanes and Apache helicopters have fired missiles and dropped over 100 tons of bombs on dozens of locations in the Israeli-occupied Gaza Strip. Over 300 people are dead and at least 1,400 more are injured. Many if not most of them are civilians. Food and medicine were already in short supply in Gaza and all medical facilities have been completely overwhelmed by this onslaught. Access to Gaza has been cut off by Israel.
This is the most violent and heartbreaking situation that has happened to the Palestinians in recent history, and it must stop. In addition to calling for protests at Israeli consulates and federal buildings, as well as letters to the U.S. and Israeli governments, Jewish Voice for Peace staff and members are already putting together an aggressive campaign focused on Gaza. And, without a moment to waste, we call for an immediate end to attacks on all civilians." - Stephanie Roth
