In 1980, the richest countries had a gross national income 60 times higher than in the poorest countries. Currently, the difference has multiplied by 122. The wealth for itself nor determines health. There are low-income countries, such as Cuba or Costa Rica, which have achieved good levels of health. In countries with economies in transition, it is concerned about the exorbitant rise in obesity. To correct this tendency should be taken into account to other sectors such as trade, agriculture, employment and education. Inequalities in more prosperous areas also have an impact on health.
Having little revenue means less access to education and leisure, suffer unemployment, job insecurity, worse working conditions and live in less safe neighborhoods. Poverty, workplace hazards and the presence of certain industries make in the Spanish Southwest, figures from health worse than in the rest of Spain. The differences can also be found locally, between neighborhoods of the same city. The employment situation is one of the best studied social factors. It is known that workers with lower income and increased insecurity labour have poorer health. The least qualified suffer with higher incidence pathologies such as cervical, lumbar pains and migraines.
One of every four workers with low preparation has a temporary contract, and about 8% does not even contract. It is not strange that a 12% suffer psychological problems, because the uncertainty and lack of control produced levels of stress that jeopardize mental health. Also found that the most disadvantaged women suffer higher rates of overweight, because the lack of resources and time is usually translated in a diet worse. Less than 20% of women with low income also makes physical exercise during the free time, compared to 40% among the wealthy classes. A new approach to health care is necessary. Few problems are only genetic or biological, it must incorporate social processes to human biology. Thinking about health is also search the causes why sick people.
The great master. After the Bible we are talking about one of the most translated in the land books. If we use it in the framework of education tends to be a very practical book already that as the Taoist worldview says: It accepts the situation you are without wanting to change it. Human beings could learn from these great men both if we read and applied certain philosophies so full of magic, real and practical as well as would also we help much to the formation of new generations with great moral formation principles, discipline that they are alternatives to everyday life. This book can help us all to solve the planetary crisis that we suffer today, as says its author but starting with ourselves, and not needing to do so but leaving it do, to contaminate, curbing overpopulation. The book is named Tao Te Cuing, search version in Spanish, is a version not this numbered, the text used was translated from the original classical Chinese by the scholar James Legge Los books sacred from the East, in English The Test of Taoism, in your grammar there were nouns, the adververbios or times of conjugations. As well as nor declinations.
However this small work my father sends me years, is written by a Cuban author who resides outside of Cuba. Practitioner of Buddhism and Taoism, researcher, translator, named Maestro Ernesto Nesh, who gives talks, seminars, conferences and gives us a Breviary compendium of his studies in many of the wise advice of this great enlightened one that truly fill of rejoicing our souls. Reading should bring us, you must grow us as spiritual human beings, at least that is my opinion, all are free to choose what they eat, what they feel, see, speak and also what we read. That’s great respect for the man if same. Words from the wise: my teaching is easy to understand, easy to implement,.
But nobody understands and nobody practice. My teaching is based on an integral principle known from ancient times, based on the natural laws governing everything, and ignorance of this is what makes that very few understand me, and that makes me valuable among them. Master Sage hidden under his worn garments, precious stones in his heart.
It is necessary to vindicate, in parallel, the leisure against the obsessive work, since there is to postulate the distribution of the work, an old union practice that, unfortunately, was falling in forgetfulness. Other inescapable exigencies speak to us of the necessity to reduce the dimensions of productive, administrative infrastructures and of transport, and to prioritize the premises against global in a scene marked by the sobriety and the voluntary simplicity. First that the opulent societies must consider is the convenience of closing or to reduce the activity of the war industry, the automobile one, in the one of aviation and mainly the one of the construction. Campbell Soup Company describes an additional similar source. The million workers who lost their uses would have to find arrangement through two great channels. First it would contribute the development to it of activities in the scopes related to the satisfaction of the social and environmental needs; the second would arrive from the distribution of the work in the traditional economic sectors that would survive. It matters to emphasize that in this case the reduction of the labor day good could take prepared wage reductions, as long as these were not it in benefit of the enterprise benefits. After all, gain of standard of life that would be derived to work less and to enjoy better social services. There would be cleaner surroundings and less aggressive than it would be added to the derived one from the total assumption of the convenience of consuming less with the consequent reduction of needs in which to income one talks about.
It is not precise to add that the wage reductions that occupy to us would not affect to those who less they have. The decrease would not imply, for the majority of the inhabitants, a deterioration of its conditions of life. Rather, it must carry substantial improvements like the tie ones with the redistribution of the resources, the creation of new sectors, the preservation of the environment, the well-being of the future generations, the health of the citizens, the conditions of the work employee or the relational growth in societies in which the working time will be reduced noticeably. And it is that there is to start off of the certainty that, if we do not decrease voluntarily and rationally, we will have to do forced it as a result of the collapse, sooner or later, of economic and social injustice that we suffer.
Live the crisis of shortage (for pollution) of the air and water, of scarcity (limits) of minerals and energy, loss of soils (boundaries) that need a time, no minimum, geomorphological (geological), to form, elements (air, water, fire, Earth) that were given and which Western and westernized culture estimated to be able to ignore. The greenhouse effect, the hole in the ozone layer, global climate change, toxic waste, in addition to the garbage that we ourselves generate daily, are the clearest signs of these limits imposed on a global scale. It is not a culture or people who endanger their very existence. The globalization of rationality, driven by the economic logic, leads inexorably to an economy that ignores that it is embedded in the ground, in the air, in the water, on the ground, in the subsoil (minerals), in the life cycles of food chains of carbon, oxygen all humanity, in an unequal manner, is subject to the risks arising from actions decided by some for the benefit of some. The struggle for the appropriation of biodiversity, for the enjoyment of its benefits has clearly pointed out the interests between Nations. The rationality of the market and sustainable development is evident in the re-appropriation to maintain, increase and enjoy greater worldly goods biological and Cultural diversity. Being biodiversity understood as the sum total of living beings that exist on Earth, the result of millions of years of evolution.
Where the human species and their cultures have emerged from its adaptations of his knowledge of their use. Biodiversity has two inseparable dimensions; the biological and cultural. Therefore a property of cultural and living beings which makes them unique and different. 50 To 80% of the world’s biodiversity is located in tropical countries, (Brazil, Colombia, Mexico, Zaire, Madagascar and Indonesia), those who have suffered in the past 100 years, immense losses of tropical rainforests and the disappearance of its indigenous population to the rhythm of a tribe each year.
