A few years ago, it took a lot of arguing to convince people that they require some kind of mineral/vitamin supplementation. Not so anymore. Although people might not have an idea of the exact numbers, they know that food available in the market is less nutritious today that it was 50 years ago.
- A Rutgers University study revealed that 19 corn ears are required to gain the same nutritional value of just on ear in 1940
- Most of our soils are so depleted that farm crops entirely depend on chemical fertilizers to grow. This means that most of our food lacks virtually all the critical trace minerals required for survival
- 80 cups of supermarket spinach today would be required to give you the same iron you would get from a cup of spinach from 50 years ago
It’s easy to see what is happening here. We have slowly moved from quality to quantity. It is becoming impossible to increase per acre yield, while depleting the soil annually without losing something in the process. And what we are losing is quality food.
The bottom line is that as long as you are living in an industrialized country, like the UK, today, you have to supplement to maintain your health. This leads to several advantages including reduction of the risk of cancer, get protection against toxic injury, slow down the aging process, heart disease and stop degenerative diseases of all kinds.
