residue of the chemical

We used to say, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away." ... but now, those lovely looking apples we eat are full of pesticides. Even the worms do not want to eat them! Furthermore, most of these apples are grown thousands of miles away, picked while they are still green and exposed to ethylene gas so they can ripen as they are being shipped to their destination in a truck. Not only do these fruits still carry a residue of the chemical but because they are picked early, they may have little or no nutritional value by the time they reach your kitchen table.

Our modern food supply has become a mixture of chemicals and additives with the emphasis on appearance and taste as well as shelf life, rather than on the nutritional value. That's why by middle age many people have as much as 20 pounds of undigested, putrefactive food in their colon. No wonder why colon cancer is the number one cancer in the United States.

technical systems

Lifestyle was originally coined by Austrian psychologist Alfred Adler in 1929. The current broader sense of the word dates from 1961.[1]

In sociology, a lifestyle is the way a person lives. A lifestyle is a characteristic bundle of behaviors that makes sense to both others and oneself in a given time and place, including social relations, consumption, entertainment, and dress. The behaviors and practices within lifestyles are a mixture of habits, conventional ways of doing things, and reasoned actions. A lifestyle typically also reflects an individual's attitudes, values or worldview. Therefore, a lifestyle is a means of forging a sense of self and to create cultural symbols that resonate with personal identity. Not all aspects of a lifestyle are entirely voluntaristic. Surrounding social and technical systems can constrain the lifestyle choices available to the individual and the symbols she/he is able to project to others and the self.[2]

The lines between personal identity and the everyday doings that signal a particular lifestyle become blurred in modern society.[3] For example, "green lifestyle" means holding beliefs and engaging in activities that consume fewer resources and produce less harmful waste (i.e. a smaller carbon footprint), and deriving a sense of self from holding these beliefs and engaging in these activities. Some commentators argue that, in modernity, the cornerstone of lifestyle construction is consumption behavior, which offers the possibility to create and further individualize the self with different products or services that signal different ways of life.
