"Fasting Mechanism Miracles"

Among this dub the newspaper "To Vima" (02/21/2010) unfilled a study of the Academic circles of Crete conducted on 609 children in the midst of the ages of 5 and 15.5 living old from Thessaloniki, 12.1% of whom "awfully fasted" according to the cryptogram of the Church.

The strict arrogant of the study, Dr. Anthony Kafatos, Tutor of Preventive Therapy and Rations at the College of Therapy of the Academic circles of Crete, noted that "fasting does not prejudice their biological sequence (of children), as sooner than assumed".

The highest unsympathetic opinion of the study is that "the children who fasted, either on all days of the fast or less, finished very undeveloped calories compared to live in who never fasted. Extremely the children who fasted recorded slight health hazards such as covered with water amusing acids and less deployment of being."

This is to order unsympathetic, while experts say that in our homeland where 22.5 % of the group of people is heavy, "fasting, which is a key element of the Greek Mediterranean low-fat, can dowry a given to the fly over of obesity in the highest nourishing way."

Among this in awareness, the teller of tales who did the story, Mahi Tratsa, writes: "The relating to diet food of the Yardstick Church seems to work... incredibly for the health of children. New studies from the Academic circles of Crete show that 180 to 200 days of fasting a court, does not put a dawdling to the proper sequence of live in children who gulp down animal nutrition, but assists with maintaining a nourishing weight, versus collective initial stages obesity."

But the Church gave a theological meaning to fasting. It is not single-handedly for the health of the group, but extremely for the health of the fundamental. This shows that the moral fiber fasting is making an bribe to God and the Church, that he desires to belong to the spiritual army of the Church and is capable to the regulations that constitute it.

We plus advise with the practice of fasting the get it wrong vigorous by the first-formed who by using up the banned fruit lost their communion with God, and we orient ourselves towards the eschatological authority of the polite, equally we order plus single-handedly feed on the uncreated thanks of God.

Along with with fasting we remove our minds from the adjunct to trade and turn towards spiritual fabric, in this way preparing ourselves personally to participate in the carousing, which are referred to in the preparations through with fasting.

Therefore, the fasting done by all live in who are not forbidden for health reasons, "works miracles", while it offers health to group and fundamental and makes a moral fiber be his own master, free of the passions and capable children of God and the Church.
