Dietary decolonization
« on: March 24, 2021, 03:40:47 am »

There needs to be a movement encouraging removal of colonial-era influences on diet. I just came across this article:

www.researchgate.net/publication/273916722_Diet_environmental_factors_and_increasing_incidence_of_colorectal_cancer_in_Nigeria

Quote
Economic development is an important environmental influence and is related to changes in dietary preferences that result from increased affluence.[3] Ordinarily, the native Nigerian diet consists of a bolus-type high fiber meal, with a vegetable-based stew assisting its swallowing. With globalization and adoption of Western diets, fewer native Nigerians still partake of their native diets
...
The World Health Organization (WHO) Global Status Report on Alcohol reveals that alcohol consumption in Nigeria has been rising steadily over the last 35 years with a information significant steep rise in the last 15 years (1994/1995 to present levels).[66] One may assume that part of the increase in CRC cases may be ascribed to this. However, it should be stated that the astronomical rise in total alcohol consumption in Nigeria from 1994 onwards was due mainly to an increase in wine consumption (which is a “big” man’s drink).

It also includes this map which I have not previously seen, examining beef consumption specifically:



We were discussing in the other topic how to get people who cannot manage full veganism to nevertheless reduce their animal product consumption; if only colonized populations could just revert to their pre-colonial diet, that alone would dramatically reduce the problem. Many non-Western civilizations had beef taboos prior to the colonial era, for example:

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cattle_in_religion_and_mythology

Quote
According to Harris, the literature relating to cow veneration became common in 1st millennium CE, and by about 1000 CE vegetarianism, along with a taboo against beef, became a well accepted mainstream Hindu tradition.[5] ... According to Ludwig Alsdorf, "Indian vegetarianism is unequivocally based on ahimsa (non-violence)" as evidenced by ancient smritis and other ancient texts of Hinduism. He adds that the endearment and respect for cattle in Hinduism is more than a commitment to vegetarianism and has become integral to its theology.[15]
...
The term geush urva means "the spirit of the cow" and is interpreted as the soul of the earth. In the Ahunavaiti Gatha, Zarathustra (or Zoroaster) accuses some of his co-religionists of abusing the cow.[42] Ahura Mazda tells Zarathustra to protect the cow.[42]
...
A beef taboo in Ancient China, known as niú jiè (牛戒), was historically a dietary restriction, particularly among the Han Chinese, as oxen and buffalo (bovines) are useful in farming and are respected.[76] During the Zhou Dynasty, they were not often eaten, even by emperors.[77] Some emperors banned killing cows.[78][79] Beef is not recommended in Chinese medicine, as it is considered a hot food and is thought to disrupt the body's internal balance.[80]
In written sources (including anecdotes and Daoist liturgical texts), this taboo first appeared in the 9th to 12th centuries (Tang-Song transition, with the advent of pork meat.[81]) By the 16th to 17th centuries, the beef taboo had become well accepted in the framework of Chinese morality and was found in morality books (善書), with several books dedicated exclusively to this taboo.[81]
...
Historically, there was a beef taboo in Ancient Japan, as a means of protecting the livestock population and due to Buddhist influence.[84] Meat-eating had long been taboo in Japan, beginning with a decree in 675 that banned the consumption of cattle, horses, dogs, monkeys, and chickens, influenced by the Buddhist prohibition of killing.[85] In 1612, the shōgun declared a decree that specifically banned the killing of cattle.[85]

And then guess what happened:

Quote
This official prohibition was in place until 1872, when it was officially proclaimed that Emperor Meiji consumed beef and mutton, which transformed the country's dietary considerations as a means of modernizing the country, particularly with regard to consumption of beef.[85] With contact from Europeans, beef increasingly became popular, even though it had previously been considered barbaric.[84]

Yep:

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cattle_slaughter_in_India#British_Raj

Quote
With the advent of British rule in India, eating beef along with drinking whiskey, in English-language colleges in Bengal, became a method of fitting in into the British culture. Some Hindus, in the 1830s, consumed beef to show how they "derided irrational Hindu customs", according to Metcalf and Metcalf.[110]

and so on.

Build muscle? Extra muscle mass costs extra food energy to merely sustain, therefore is wasteful and contrary to the frugality that we are trying to promote. I consider the present-day bulking obsession to be a symptom of excessive affluence. And as usual it was Westerners who started it:

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eugen_Sandow

Quote
Eugen Sandow (German pronunciation: [ˌɔʏ̯ɡeːn ˈzandoː]; born Friedrich Wilhelm Müller; 2 April 1867 – 14 October 1925) was a pioneering German bodybuilder, now known as the "father of modern bodybuilding".
...
Sandow was born to a Jewish family in Königsberg, Prussia (now Kaliningrad), on 2 April 1867.

While I have had some success over the years discouraging milk consumption for purely ethical reasons (which are of course the best reasons to refrain), among those who are not amenable to vegan persuasion, I have nevertheless sometimes succeeded in at least convincing them to give up on adding milk to tea/coffee for the sake of decolonization, since it was the lactose-tolerant Western colonialists:



who came up with the habit of adulterating (Turanizing?) our drinks with milk:

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_tea

Quote
The East India Company brought back many products, of which tea was just one, but proved one of the most successful.[48] It was initially promoted as a medicinal beverage or tonic[48] but by the end of the seventeenth century was taken as an all-purpose drink, albeit mainly by the elite, as it was still expensive.[48] Tea was not traded in significant amounts until the 18th century. By 1700 tea was being sold by grocers and tea shops in London, the latter frequented by women as well as men.[50] By the 1720s black tea overtook green tea in popularity as the price dropped, and early on British drinkers began adding sugar and milk to tea, a practice that was not done in China.[48]

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_coffee

Quote
The first coffeehouse in Austria opened in Vienna in 1683 after the Battle of Vienna, by using supplies from the spoils obtained after defeating the Turks. The officer who received the coffee beans, Jerzy Franciszek Kulczycki, a Polish military officer of Ukrainian origin, opened the coffee house and helped popularize the custom of adding sugar and milk to the coffee.

Purely from a taste perspective, I never understood the appeal of adding milk, which just covers up the taste of the plant itself. And then I found this:

academic.oup.com/eurheartj/article/28/2/219/2887513

Quote
Addition of milk prevents vascular protective effects of tea

www.nutritionmyths.com/coffee-with-milk-is-it-bad-for-you/

Quote
The only result of adding milk to coffee is that the absorption of an antioxidant called chlorogenic acid available in coffee may be reduced by 23%.

Is anyone honestly surprised? And it took researchers this long to confirm what my tongue knew in an instant. Heck, even my eyes can tell which is better! Before Westernization:



After Westernization:

www.businessinsider.com/red-meat-could-be-taxed-to-help-curb-climate-change-2019-8

Quote
It comes hot on the heels of a UN report which found that the human food system accounts for 37% of all greenhouse-gas emissions.

The production of meat - and especially red meat - is responsible for much of that. A 2011 study found that lamb, followed by beef, are by far the worst offenders.
...
If taxes were as successful at constraining the global appetite for meat, the reduction in carbon emissions could be enormous.
...
A recent study found that if the United States went meatless, it would be the equivalent of taking 60 million cars off the roads.

However, Fitch tipped cold water on that idea. It stated that it was "highly unlikely" that meat-lovers in the US and Brazil would use taxes to banish meat from menus.

There is more beauty in one corn cart than in all of Western civilization.

Speaking of which, no one ate corn with butter prior to the colonial era. The Western colonialists just had to add dairy to everything they came across (tea already covered above).....

During the Counterculture era there was a common understanding about steak tartare:

Indeed, the above sketch makes fun of Western dining in general. Those were the days! Unfortunately, since the Counterculture era ended, Western dining rapidly recovered its prestige (especially in formerly colonized countries), despite still being as ludicrous as it has always been:

As an addendum to the previous post, I felt encouraged a few years ago when I saw ordinary Americans mocking Trump for eating KFC with a knife and fork:

people.com/celebrity/donald-trump-eats-kfc-with-a-fork-and-knife-best-twitter-responses/

This highlights that America has successfully diverged in dining style from Western civilization to the extent that it looks odd to see an American dish* being eaten Western-style. If you think about it, many mainstream dishes of modern American origin (burgers, subs, hot dogs, burritos, tacos, etc.) are all in effect variations of the pre-colonial (Pueblo) dining style of wrapping a filling in dough (originally a corn tortilla, which dates back to the Neolithic era) which can then be conveniently held by hand, eliminating the need for additional eating utensils. Imported dishes popularized by American culture (pizzas, fries, etc.) also fit comfortably into this utensil-free dining style. This is something that Americans should take pride in.

(* Of course I do not endorse the main ingredient of KFC! I am purely focusing on dining style here, not on ingredients.)

I am not the only person who has noticed this:



Note how the US is depicted as being in a war between American and Western dining styles.

No kidding. When I was 7 and was going to school in a non-Western country, suddenly one day the teacher said we would be doing a “table manners” exercise, where we would learn to eat using “table manners” by incorporating all the elements of Western dining into our lunch, replete with Western eating utensils and table setup. As a 7 year old boy, it was very difficult me to do this, as I was used to eating only with a spoon, but also particularly difficult for me to “set the table” by placing the various components (utensils, napkin, etc.) in their correct spots. I ended up toppling my tiffin box which spilt my food onto the floor, in effect wasting my lunch that day. The experience was so traumatizing that the very phrase “table manners” invokes this trauma and reminds me of that nightmarish experience.

This is why reading this phrase from the main site for the first time:
aryanism.net/culture/aesthetics/food/
Quote
The more emphasis a culture places on “table manners”, the more degenerate it is.

immediately resonated with me and basically healed my trauma

"How about spoons and forks in ASEAN nations?"

By our enemies' own assessment it is non-Western:

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Montreal–Philippines_cutlery_controversy (worth reading whole thing)

Quote
In April 2006, schoolteacher Martine Bertrand, who was assigned a role of school lunchroom monitor at École Lalande, sanctioned the then seven-year old Luc on ten separate occasions for what the school called "disgusting" and "piggish" eating habits: using a fork to push his food onto a spoon before eating it. The school board countered that the boy was punished only for disruptive behavior. The boy's mother pursued a formal apology and reported that school principal Normand Bergeron told her in a telephone conversation that in Canada, one should eat with Canadian manners ("Madame, you are in Canada. Here in Canada you should eat the way Canadians eat.")[3]

Which is of course nonsense, since Canadians did not eat Western-style until the colonial era. This is a classic case of the white supremacist double-standard that "whites" who migrate need not assimilate to existing standards set by "non-whites", but "non-whites" who migrate must assimilate to existing standards set by "whites".

"It's much more "manly" and noble to defend those weaker than you than it is to uhhh... Eat them."

That is a False Left view. The True Left view is:

www.reddit.com/r/natureismetal/comments/8cj4p8/a_male_lion_eating_a_cub_after_taking_over_the/

www.newsweek.com/cannibal-chimp-snatches-newborn-eats-it-shocking-behavior-maternity-leave-686873

Females never do this, only males. Females, on the other hand, allow males to do this and reward those who do it with sexual access, in effect encouraging males to do it. Therefore both masculinity and femininity are ignoble, and mutually complementary in ignobility. Both the noble male who defended the female's existing children and the noble female who defended her own existing children would be acting against their own reproductive interests under natural selection.

Relating this back to the original topic, colonialism is basically just a larger-scale version of the above, therefore it is accurate to describe colonialism as masculine behaviour. And indeed we also get the corresponding feminine behaviour by the colonized of rewarding the colonialists with sexual access as documented extensively here:

Now this is encouraging (if you ignore the inaccurate use of the term "farms"), all the more so when you consider that total US human population is increasing:

gephardtdaily.com/national-international/wisconsin-lost-10-percent-of-its-dairy-farms-in-2019/

Quote
It’s a trend happening across the country, Stephenson added. Waning consumer demand, loss of trade and an oversupply of milk have driven milk prices too low for farms to profit.

America’s largest milk producer, Dean Foods, filed for bankruptcy protection in November, citing “a challenging operating environment” and declining “consumer milk consumption.”
...
Between July 2018 and July 2019, the U.S. dairy herd lost 100,000 cows — shrinking from 9.4 million animals to 9.3 million. The USDA will release the updated figures on the U.S. cow herd size later this month.
...
Experts predict prices will stay elevated during 2020. Many dairies continue to fold, unable to recover from five years of losses, Stephenson said. And those that remain will likely lack the capital to increase production.

Demographic Lactoseintoleranceshift in action?



http://chartsbin.com/view/1491

By the way, did you know that, prior to the colonial era, dairy products were generally absent in America?

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milk#History

Quote
In the rest of the world (i.e., East and Southeast Asia, the Americas and Australia) milk and dairy products were historically not a large part of the diet, either because they remained populated by hunter-gatherers who did not keep animals or the local agricultural economies did not include domesticated dairy species. Milk consumption became common in these regions comparatively recently, as a consequence of European colonialism and political domination over much of the world in the last 500 years.

David Duke (Gentile) promotes Paleo Diet:

Also note his mesomorphic build, archetypal of a westerner. I sense cro-magnon blood:

"note his mesomorphic build"

Also the short nose/midface, and of course the robust bones (e.g. wrist). Here is a better angle of his wrists:



I am quite sure the Paleo diet suits him well (which is why those like him should not be allowed to reproduce).

‘White Power Milk’: Milk, Dietary Racism, and the ‘Alt-Right’

Abstract

This article analyzes why milk has been chosen as a symbol of racial purity by the ‘alt-right’. Specifically, this article argues the alt-right's current use of claims about milk, lactose tolerance, race, and masculinity can be connected to similar arguments originally made during the 19th century against colonialized populations and immigration groups. In the 19th century, colonizing populations classified colonized populations as ‘effeminate corn and rice eaters’ because of their supposed lack of consumption of meat and dairy. This article argues that a similar practice continues today. It also argues that there is a relationship between the dietary racism ideas popularized by the alt-right and similar ideas published in academic journals, taught in some college classrooms, and reproduced in mainstream publications such as The Economist and PBS. In conclusion, this article documents a pattern between an earlier time in which anxiety over falling wages and increasing domestic immigration focused on issues of meat and dairy consumption and current anxiety over stagnant wages, fears over immigration, and a reassertion of the consumption of milk and dairy as a proxy reassertion of white privilege.

---

There are also the "carnivore diet" advocates (WTF?)*:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HLF29w6YqXs

*Carnivore diets are worse than omnivore diets because the caloric intake acquired through plants has to be substituted with animal products, which increases overall animal cruelty.

---

I want to bring up something else: hotel breakfasts. Have you noticed how, in hotels in non-Western countries, the breakfast options are sure to include the local style but also Western styles (usually both English and continental!)? On the other hand, a hotel usually has to be quite luxurious in order to offer a non-local non-Western style, and even then only as a fourth option. I have yet to come across even a single hotel that offers a non-local non-Western style while not offering Western styles. This is another example of the absurd Eurocentrism we are here to change.

A decolonized hotel should offer the local style, certainly, but should then offer neighbouring styles as alternatives long before offering Western styles. Of particular note, hotels in Old World non-Western countries almost never offer breakfast in New World styles. I would like to see them do so.

---

I think this is the same reason why citizens of non Western countries choose to tour Western countries instead of areas in their own country.

You cannot work a man who must have beef and bread, and would prefer beef, alongside of a man who can live on rice. In all such conflicts, and in all such struggles, the result is not to bring up the man who lives on rice to the beef-and-bread standard, but it is to bring down the beef-and-bread man to the rice standard.

We started saying it first, and now years later others are gradually picking up on it:

'Cheese is racist' storm as hundreds back ban on dairy foods in school

SERVING dairy in foods at schools is "racist" an Extinction Rebellion campaigner told a council after hundreds signed a petition to serve children plant based meals only.

Alison Plaumer, from the global environmental movement, has led a petition for more plant-based meals to be served in schools and other venues. She told one council there is a "racist element" to serving dairy because she believes a large percentage of the BAME communities is lactose-intolerant. More than 240 people have backed the campaign so far, reports Sussex Live.

Speaking at Brighton and Hove City Council meeting in March, Ms Plaumer said: "Arguably, there is a racist element to serving dairy too much because 65 per cent of the world’s population are lactose intolerant, many from the BAME (black, Asian and minority ethnic) community.
...
Labour councillors in Enfield, north London, have already stopped serving meat at council events, while Lewisham has voted to provide exclusively plant-based options at its events. Leeds had introduced a meat-free day and another plant-based day a week across 182 schools.

Brighton and Hove City Council has no political control at the momenty but the Green Party has a minority lead - one seat ahead of Labour.

Elaine Hills, a councillor for the Green Party there, is deputy chair of the council’s Children, Young People and Skills Committee and has been a vegan for 28 years.

She said: "Plant-based food certainly has a much lower carbon footprint than a conventional diet. I agree it is something we should focus on to meet our carbon neutrality goals.

Western hyperconsciousness about sexual dimorphism also manifests in Western dinner seating plans, which prohibit men from sitting adjacent to other men, and women from sitting adjacent to other women:



To the best of my knowledge, there is no similar practice in any other civilization. Only Westerners are so obsessive over something so unimportant.

Quote
When it comes to emissions, our food choices carry some serious weight. And according to a new study, white individuals’ eating habits contribute more on average to climate change-related emissions than other demographic groups.

The study, published Monday in the Journal of Industrial Ecology, examined the “food pipeline” — the production, distribution, and waste associated with the products we eat — to assess the environmental impacts of three different demographic groups, “Blacks, Latinx, and Whites.” Using data from the Environmental Protection Agency and the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, researchers found that the typical diet of a white American includes more foods that require more land and water — and emit more greenhouse gases — than the typical diets of black and Latinx communities.

We would be surprised if this wasn't the case!

Also:

Quote
the study is just the latest piece of evidence that, on a population level, disparities exist between which demographic groups contribute to — and bear the burdens of — climate change.

According to research published earlier this month in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, people of color are exposed to higher levels of air pollution than what would be expected based on their own rates of consumption (a contributor to emissions). The PNAS study found that non-white Hispanics breathe in 63 percent more air pollution than caused by their own consumption, while black people are exposed to about 56 percent more than they cause. As for white Americans, the study found they breathe in 17 percent less air pollution than they cause.

And then rightists have the nerve to ask why, if "whites" are such bad people, "non-whites" keep trying to move into majority "white" neighbourhoods.

America’s Westerners' obsession with meat, explained:
https://www.popsci.com/why-americans-eat-so-much-meat/
Quote
In many European countries, the land and animals on it were the property of the king, says Harriet Ritvo, a history professor at MIT and the author of four books, including The Animal Estate: The English and Other Creatures in the Victorian Age. “The elite has been eating meat—all kinds of meat, elaborately—for a long period of time,” she says. “But the peasants were not eating meat at all.” (In the medieval folk story of Robin Hood, the bycocket-wearing boy turns to the life of an outlaw after killing one of the king’s deer.)

When colonists began arriving in the new world, their fortunes quickly changed. They found an abundance of land (stolen, of course, from indigenous people), most of it loosely controlled. Native animals provided some ready protein, but the plentiful natural fauna was also ideal for fattening imported livestock. Pigs, for example, could root around in the forests for free, before being topped off with corn and slaughtered.
