All you need is ELA balance
What’s this ELA balance, so crucial for life, irrespective of country, politics, religion or economic condition?
Eating, the E factor of ELA balance, is surely our most prior subject. Popular French singer Alain Souchon made famous the song, “On est foutus, on mange trop”, meaning “we are f***ed, we eat too much”. While some control food to retain the beauty of their body, those suffering from illnesses have genuine eating problems. I hope the 21st century’s technology advancement will improve the lot of the world’s 963 million under-fed, so food truly becomes a human right.
In India, taste overpowers any trepidation over food not being hygienic and healthy. Let me illustrate from my professional work. Visiting mom-and-pop stores across the country, I was shocked to find 76 per cent of all edible oil being sold loose and poured into tins or plastic jars that consumers bring with them. Retailers use the same large—sometimes open—containers with taps and funnels, year after year, in their overcrowded small shops infested by rats and cockroaches. It’s deplorable that three-fourths of Indian consumers, their doctors and nutritionists, are oblivious to this unhygienic oil
