The Future of Nutrition
The way conventional food is produced alarms us because it robs people of what they need to be physically and emotionally healthy, energetic and productive. Most food has become nutritionally very low.
Nutrition is mostly a function of three things:
Type of plant and very importantly, variety
Many food plants over the past several centuries have been bred for increased sweetness and transportability. The inherent goodness and nutrients have mostly been bred out of common plants. There are some varieties which exist today which are considered superior and more nutrient dense than others.
It is impossible to produce healthy plants with the minerals, iron, and protein we need on soil that is repeatedly doused with herbicides, chemical fertilizers, and pesticides. These chemicals kill the diverse array of life that exists in the soil. Lifeless soil produces lifeless plants.
As soon as produce is picked, it starts to lose its health qualities. We evolved eating fresh food.
