Diet and Culture

Diet and culture are inseparable. Each culture has its own special dietary
habits. Some of these habits are good, but some are bad. Unfortunately, the bad
habits of addiction often outweigh the good habits of nutrition. The bad habits
of addiction undermine the security and progress of a culture. It is important for
each culture to study its dietary habits and to distinguish between nutrition and
addiction. This will enable each and every culture to fulfill its own unique
potential. This will also enable all cultures to live in peace and harmony with
each other.
