ARE HUMANS SPECIAL?

Leave a comment

A very interesting article in NY Times reveals that Humans are not as elite as we understand. See chart below.

It makes you question the way we see animals? Why do we lack the compassion? Why do we exploit animals for our gain?

Can we justify blinding a rabbit to test our cosmetics?

Can we justify enslaving elephants and dolphins to do trick and amuse us in circus and amusement parks?

Can we justify breeding 100s of dogs and minks in captivity to wear their fur as a fashion statement?

Do we feel the pangs of a mother cow as her child is led to slaughter?

Does force feeding a goose to the point of bleeding worth the ‘foie gras’ on our plate?

Think. Don’t blindly follow a tradition. Live consiciously. It will make difference to one animal that you saved from capital exploitation.

By training, I am a American Board Certified Pediatrician. But in my younger years I grew up with natural alternatives. As a mom I have tried to incorporate both for my kids and it has worked wonders. And finally, as I am studying natural & alternative medicines, I realize the beauty and wisdom of living closer to earth. Hence in my practice I integrate both...for acute ailments I follow American Academy of Pediatrics recommendation but for simple and/or chronic conditions I prefer natural alternatives. In western training we were raised to think that "health is the absence of symptoms and problems". But eastern sensibilities has educated me that "Health is state that allows one to use the full capabilities of their body, mind and intellect. Therefore, healthy living is a balanced state of well being: physically, mentally, socially and spiritually." This implies that healing is not a "one-pill-fits-all", but a personalized experience.
