Without Food

Why would someone decide to stop eating?

We know that the body needs food in order to function well.

However,many people fast at some time during their lives.

Why is this?

Some people fast for political reasons.

In the early 20th century,women in England the United States weren't

allowed to vote.In protest,many women went on fasts.They hoped that fasting would bring attention to this injustice.Mohandas Gandhi,the famous Indian leader,fasted 17 times during his life.For Gandhi,fasting

was a powerful political tool.In 1943,he fasted to bring attention to his

country's need for independence.For 21 days,he went without food.

Another famous faster was Cesar Chavez.In the 1960s,he fasted for

three weeks.Why?His goal was to bring attention to the terrible

working conditions of farm workers in the United States.

Fasting is also a spiritual practice in many religions.Every year during the month of Ramadan,which is a religious holiday,Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset.Many Hindus fast on special occasions,as do some

Christians and Buddhists.

Of course,not everyone fasts for political or religious reasons. Some

people occasionally fast just because it makes them feel better. The

American writer Mark Twain thought fasting was the best medicine

for common illnesses.Whenever he had a cold or a fever, he stopped

eating completely. He said that this always made his cold or fever go

away.Another American writer, Upton Sinclair,discovered fasting after years of overeating, indigestion, and headaches. His first fast lasted for 12 days.During this time, his headaches and stomaches went away.

Sinclair said that fasting also made him more alert and energetic.

Choosing to go without food can be very dangerous.However,that doesn't stop people from fasting for political,religious,or health reasons.

    人們為什麼要絕食

    我們都知道身體需要食物來維持機能.

    然而, 很多人在他們生活中有時候會絕食.

    為什麼?

    有些人為了政治因素而絕食.

    在20世紀早期, 女性因不能投票而絕食抗議.

    她們希望從絕食中能夠讓這件不公平的事成為焦點.

    Mohandas Gandhi(甘地), 印度有名的精神領袖,

    在他一生絕食了17次, 有了甘地例子,

    絕食成了強硬的政治工具.

    在1943年, 他透過絕食讓各界注意的他希望獨立的需求.

    有21天沒有進食. 另一位有名的絕食者就是Cesar Chavez.

    在1960年代, 他絕食了3個禮拜. 為什麼?

    他的目的就是讓大家注意的美國農民劣勢的工作條件.

    絕食在許多宗教上也是一種精神上的修行.

    每年一到回教曆的9, 是一個修道的日子,

    穆斯林從日出絕食到日落. 很多印度人在特定的場合絕食,

    基督教徒與佛教徒也是.

    當然, 不是每給人都是為了政治或宗教因素而絕食.

    有些人偶爾停止進食只是想讓他們自己感覺更舒服.

    美國作家Mark Twain(馬克吐溫)認為對某些普通的病症而言

    絕食是最好的解決之道, 不論是他感冒或發燒,

    他每次一開始只少絕食12天. 在這段期間,

    他的頭痛與胃痛皆不藥而癒.

    Sinclair說絕食讓他感到更靈敏與活力.

    選擇去停止進時這件事是非常危險的. 然而,

    還是無法阻止人們因政治, 宗教, 或健康因素而絕食.
