A Concealed Leading Cause Of Death   -   The Lack Of Essential Nutrients (part 2)

Our food plants are grains, vegetables, fruits and nuts can in fact manufacture vitamins, amino acids and fatty acids but they cannot manufacture minerals. You won’t be able to find one plant that can manufacture a mineral. Nutritional minerals do not occur in a uniform blanket around the crust of the earth. They occur in veins like gold and silver. The odds of someone getting all of their essential nutrients (including minerals) from eating well is zero.

The reason is simple. In a field of crops the rows will contain varying amounts of minerals. Row number one might contain two minerals, row number two might contain ten and row number three might have zero, so it will largely depend on which row your tomato or soybean is growing in to determine it’s mineral content. There is one critical fact that many fruits and vegetable lovers may not know as it relates to the produce they consume. To be happy, a plant only needs nine minerals.

Humans need sixty. Knowing this fact you can understand that there are fifty-one minerals missing from a plant that your body needs. This is assuming that the plant has the nine necessary minerals which will not guarantee that all will be passed through your body by consumption.

Missing those 51 minerals will automatically put you at risk for several diseases. There is a recent report that says, “Forty percent of the world’s land used for agriculture is seriously degraded.” A 1992 study shows that African soils over the last 100 years had been depleted in it’s fertility by 74%, Asia by 73%, Australia by 55%, Europe by 72%, South America by 76% and United States by a jaw dropping 85%. With this information one should not dare to believe that they can get everything they need by eating the four food groups.

In January of 2000 a small report was released in which they compared over a twenty-two year period (from 1975-1997) certain nutritional values in our food. They took the most popular vegetables that are grown and eaten in America; broccoli, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, collard greens, kale, mustard greens, parsley, onions and others. They found that there was a 53% drop in calcium values, 38% drop in Vitamin A, 48% drop in Riboflavin (vitamin B-2), 35% drop in Thiamin (Vitamin B-1) and 29% fall in Niacin (Vitamin B-3).

The lack of essential nutrients have become a leading cause of death because of the huge decline in nutritional content. Farmers have not been putting the essential minerals into the soil that the plants needed so little by little they lost their ability to manufacture vitamins at a high level.
