Veggies with less vitamins? Yes, I'm afraid it's true! According to recent research published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition, fruits and vegetables today contain much less nutritional value compared to produce grown back in the 1950's.
Dr. Donald R. Davis of the University of Texas found that produce grown on huge modern agribusiness farms carry anywhere from 6% less protein to 38% less of the B vitamin riboflavin. Some other essential nutrients found to have dropped dramatically are calcium, iron and vitamin C.
This is one reason most people today aren't getting even the minimum Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) of nutrition from the food they eat. And the RDA's are only the bare bones necessary to prevent scurvy and beriberi. They're not any where close to the optimum nutrition you need for excellent health.
Since current hybrid varieties of fruits and vegetables are grown with synthetic fertilizers to increase plant yield per acre, they end up with less nutrition. Plants can't get all the important minerals or synthesize sufficient vitamins and amino acids. Organic produce, however, is grown without artificial fertilizers, pesticides or genetically modified organisms, so it's safer, more nutritious and tastes better too.
Your health is your most valuable asset and optimum nutrition is essential if you want to look and feel your very best – all day, every day.
