eight oranges

“We have to eat eight oranges to get the same amount of vitamin C as our grandparents got from eating just one. Despite all of our advances in technology and agricultural practices, the health of our soil is only getting worse. Our soil today has 85 percent fewer minerals than it contained 100 years ago...Aggressive agricultural methods have literally stripped the minerals and nutrients out of the soil...the industry has defaulted to fast-growing, pest-resistant production, making every generation of produce less nutritious than the last. All over the world, minerals and nutrients in our soil have been lost because of these farming practices. Some estimate that only forty-eight years of nutrient-rich topsoil remains.” -Dr Josh Axe
