April 22 is the official date assigned for the annual awareness of Earth Day. This year’s theme is Restore Our Earth™, which is appropriate on a number of levels, notably at ocean depths.
Given that 71 percent of our planet is covered by water and the Earth’s oceans account for 96.5 percent of the world’s water, ocean life is inextricably connected to life on Earth. The health of the seven seas greatly affects our own.
Take the recent example to be seen in the Netflix documentary, Seaspiracy, a controversial look at what takes place at sea and lies beneath the surface of the world’s oceans affecting life on Earth. The film purports that as a worldwide industry, commercial fishing pollutes the oceans and kills much more than just the targeted catch of marine life.
One of the film’s takeaways is that people can do their part by avoiding the consumption of seafood, the source of which is unsustainable if the industry continues as is. Projections are that 30 years from now, there will be no more fish to eat and our planet will never be the same. The theme of restoring our Earth ties in nicely with fixing what is wrong at sea .
Restore the Earth, Restore Your Body
This year’s restoration theme for Earth Day also ties in nicely with fixing what’s wrong in our personal planets: our bodies.
Avoiding the consumption of fish and meat means having a primarily plant-based diet, which years of research reveals is the healthiest choice for humans. There’s even a Planetary Health Diet that is said to benefit people and the Earth.
On top of the claimed damage being done to the Earth’s oceans in the pursuit of seafood, meat and dairy farming uses 83 percent of the world’s farmland. That’s a lot of the Earth’s soil. These farming practices also account for 60 percent of greenhouse-gas emissions from agriculture.
Getting most of your nutrition from the many components of a plant-based diet—beans, fruit, legumes, nuts, seeds, vegetables and whole grains—can contribute to restoration: improving your health and maintaining it for a healthy lifetime. And whole-food powders from AIM can supplement your restorative, plant-based intake.
