While we benefit by having a sāttvik (Spiritually pure) diet, we have to face harmful effects if we have a diet that is not sāttvik. Today in the name of ‘Green Revolution’, chemical fertilizers are used; chemical insecticides are sprayed on fruits, vegetables, fodder, etc. As a result, many items such as grains, fruits, vegetables, milk, etc. have become toxic. These days, the inclination to drink alcohol has also increased. In fact, alcohol is not a ‘food’ item. Despite this, alcohol is consumed before meals and at other times too. This Text highlights the harmful effects of a toxic diet, alcohol etc. and suggests remedies. Negative energies also try to cause distress to people through the medium of diet. This text also mentions what precautions should be taken to prevent such distress.
