Gandhi’s Localized Economics

food300At the beginning of the 20th century, India began importing cheap factory-made cloth from England, which forced thousands of local weavers and spinners out of work. The result was dire poverty and social chaos. Gandhi’s response was to throw away all articles made of English mill cloth, and wear only cloth which he spun himself. The image of him spinning on his charka became instantly famous; thousands followed his lead, and the result was India’s independence.

Swadeshi, or “localized economics,” is a concept developed by Mahatma Gandhi.

I grew up before the Thruway went in and listened to nothing but my extended family's extended conversations about how the road would destroy upstate.

A Natural Antibiotic with Beneficial Side Effects

silverDr Robert Becker, the American orthopaedic surgeon, pioneer in the field of regeneration and bioelectromagnetics, reports on his success using silver electrodes in his landmark book The Body Electric (with Gary Selden, William Morrow & Co, NY, 1985).

Describing his early work in 1973 on bone regeneration using electricity, he stated: 'In preliminary tests we found that silver electrodes, when made electrically positive, would kill all types of bacteria in a zone about a half inch in diameter, apparently because of positive silver ions driven into the culture by the applied voltage. This was an exciting discovery because no single antibiotic worked against all types of bacteria.'

Although other metals, such as gold, platinum, copper and stainless steel, stopped the growth of four bacteria tested at both poles, they only succeeded when high currents were used, which produced other toxic effects. Only silver at the positive pole killed or deactivated every type of bacteria without side effects, even at very low currents.
