Mark 6:1-33
People should stand up for what they know to be right even if it involves the risk of being rejected.

We are what we eat;
It is a scientifically proven fact that our food choices affect our heath. The old saying, we are what we eat, is true. Every cell in our body was created from the food we eat, the water we drink and the air we breathe. In addition to nourishing our bodies, food also affects the quality of our lives, our appearance, moods, weight, energy, the aging process and our overall health and well-being.
When an activity raises threats of harm to human health or the environment, precautionary measures must be taken, even if some cause and effect relationships are not fully established scientifically. In this context, the proponent of an activity, rather than the public must bear the burden of proof
