Why there is little nutrition in our food

Did you know that a study found that for a woman to get her daily allowance of Vitamin A in 1950 she needed to eat 2 peaches? Today to get the same amount of Vitamin A from peaches she would have to eat 53!

Do you know why? Because our soil is so over farmed that the nutrients have been extracted and not replenished. Fertilizer does not replace nutrients, fertilizer adds chemicals to the ground that force plants to grow bigger and faster.

Organically grown fruits and vegetables are not necessarily more nutritious! “Organically grown” means that the farmer does his best to not use pesticides or other chemicals. Notice “does his best”, it’s not a guarantee. Organically grown does not mean more nutrition.

To really nail this down the latest recommendations to the US Food Pyramid now show us needing to eat 9-10 servings of fresh fruits and vegetables a day. Do you know anyone that eats that much? Fresh fruits and vegetables are only a few hours old since being picked – not a couple days old. If the vegetables or fruits are picked before they are ripe, so that they don’t spoil on the way to the store, then they are lacking even more nutrition. This is because the plant does not invest putting the nutrients in until it is ripe.

Why did they make the change to the food pyramid? Because our fruits and vegetables have so little nutrition. The old food pyramid was correct 50 years ago when our food was more nutritious.

Really makes you think doesn’t it. So what should you do? Try to buy fruits and vegetables from local roadside stands. Make sure the produce is organically grown. Buy it in the morning, or as soon as the produce to the stand.
