I have been educated in environmental science. I came to New Zealand for a 3 month stay. The purpose of this trip is to uncover why it is one of the best eco systems on the planet. Why is the water so pure, the soil so conducive to growing organic vegetables. The meats so lean, and to do air sampling. The air is so clean people are rarely sick. There is very little processing and homogenization of dairy. I believe it may be due to the location, but can't conclude this. They plant vegetables differently than the United States. Sustainability is becoming a serious problem and my research about this amazing country may help us understand how they do it.To further understand the pure water with, a high ph naturally. Alkaline water is known to prevent disease and neutralize your body's chemistry. It has anti agents in keeping the body looking and feeling younger. It has been known by drinking alkaline water it can cure illness. The vegetable plantation is quite different here. Pesticide is not used, but the vegetables last a long time and do not spoil. My theory is it may be from the soil, this to I will uncover. Colds are virtually unheard of here, as well as allergies, whether air or food borne. The oceans and lakes are so clear, you can see down at least 30-40ft. And it gives off a blue purple hue. Fish is abundant, as well as lamb. Interestingly enough, when I cook it,, no fat is rendered. I also have a degree in Culinary, Nutrition, Health and Sanitation. My study of all these things that are essential to staying healthy, avoiding illness and the link to what I will research, along with the sustainability of this country may get the attention of a lot of people. Also the unemployment rate is 1%.
