The state of our soils

Many people are concerned about the state of our oils (oil spills, oil supplies and gas prices), which effects the state of our union (and the state of our economy).

Our concern is for the state of our soils, and how it effects your health.

Over the past century, the quality of fresh food has declined due to soil depletion, unsustainable farming practices, overproduction of crops, and the use of pesticides and herbicides. You can no longer assume you’re getting all of the vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and phytonutrients you need by eating a multitude of fresh produce.

Not surprisingly, a calorie today will provide you less nutrition than a calorie from 100, or even 50 years ago.

Three recent studies of historical food composition have shown 5 to 40 percent declines in some of the minerals in fresh produce, and another study found a similar decline in our protein sources.

Now, more than ever, it is important to consider the nutritional density (how much nutrition you get per calorie of food consumed and per dollar of money spent) of the foods you eat.

Farming the organic way

Organic agriculture is definitely more sustainable in the long-term, improving soil fertility and terrain drought resistance greatly. These farming practices completely waive off external costs, incurred due to investment in chemical pesticides and nutrient runoff, and a number of health issues that result from agro-chemical residue.
