The refrigerator and freezer (ice box) is a bit over 100 years old. And before that, what did we do? Where did we store food? How did we keep our foods "fresh?" Humans have been consuming foods of the sort for thousands of years; and without the refrigerator, the human being managed to nourish the body without any worry of the food perishing. So where does this great concern and doubt come from? And a more interesting question: why do we want to perserve and store food for long periods of time?

I think it is safe to say, before the incorporation of the refrigerator, humans ate food within a short period of time. They also probably bought less food in order to avoid vasts amounts of waste across the board. And in light of all this, the food was probably more fresh when bought in order to reserve the highest quality of goods for the consumers. If the food spoiled, it would force the retailer and the consumer to treat it as waste, naturally. So why the refrigerator? Most likely this invention paved the way for high levels of human food consumption; and also increased the amount of food that was being bought and sold. And one may ask, "Where's the problem?" The problem is that refrigeration of any product will change the actual chemical and genetic nature of any good. This holds especially true for fruits and vegeatables. Your fruits and vegetables are not meant to be in a state of "shock" where they "live" without light, and in the unnatural cold air of the refrigerator. How does this preserve the abundant purity of the Earth's fruits and vegetables? At a maximum, it may slow down the decaying process of the fruits and vegetables. Nevertheless, many fruits and vegetables would most probably mutate or die when the temperature is drastically reduced (or increased for that matter).


Leave all of the fruits and vegetables outside of the refrigerator. It is understandable that many fruits and vegetables probably experience some sort of refrigeration before it reaches the home. That said, keep them away from any more damage and destruction. Their bodies are very sensitive. Their genetic structures are easily mutated and destroyed. By leaving the fruits and vegetables out, humans will be able to "salvage" the benefits of the produce before consumption.

Also, by leaving the fresh produce out of the refrigerator, it places a bit more responsibility on the consumer to ensure the food is consumed in a timely fashion: thereby avoiding as much waste as possible. And naturally, humans would buy less produce as a means to not only avoid waste, but also to not hoard any of the produce that could have been consumed by a family that could have really used it. It forces human nature to be more concerned and aware with their actions. There will not be much need to buy produce in bulk.

As a means to move forward, buy respective fruit and vegetable baskets (no glass or plastic) and cover it. Allow the produce to breathe effeciently while it awaits your consumption. The produce will be so much more tasty and nutritious. At the end of the day, all of these foods are going into the human body. It should be consumed while it is most beneficial and nutritionally rich.

Refrigerators expose the Earth's magnificent fruits and vegetables to the essences and vibrations of all other products stored with it. By keeping them separate, it ensures their high quality until it is time for it to be consumed or naturally perish.
