Fruits and Vegetables - Losing Nutrition Over Time

"A US government study that tracked the nutrient levels in fruits and vegetables for 50 years has found today's offerings are less abundant in key nutrients than those of the 1950s." That is according to this article published in Functional Foods and Nutraceuticals. I wonder if they studied fruits and vegetables grown on organic farms that use traditional farming methods?

Our land is out of balance! Our bodies are out of balance! We can't get our required nutrition from our food so we must resort to taking a chemically-manufactured pill in order to stay healthy. Does this really make sense to you?

COMMON SENSE: We must support our organic farmers and educate the rest. We have to let the land rest from overuse of chemicals, fertilizers, pesticides, and insecticides. Let the land get healthy and it will take care of us.
