Why is Organic Food Still Not That Good?
Quite simply, the soils in which our foods are grown lack essential nutrients (especially minerals). Depleted soils directly relate to a lack of nutrients in our food; conversely, contaminated soils will produce contaminated foods.
Organic farmers must be admired for doing their best at keeping chemicals and other ‘nasties’ well away from their soils, however it could be suggested they must struggle with the airborne pollutants – after all, who would have an ‘organic farm’ near to a motorway or under a flight path of a major airport? – don’t be too alarmed but some farmers do!
Now let’s take this one stage further and get to what we believe is the root cause of many of today’s health challenges and that is a lack of minerals in our foods.
There have been countless studies carried out and each one confirms that our soils (where we grow our foods) are “significantly” mineral-deficient and losing minerals at a rate of knots.
Minerals in our diet are essential for literally all of our bodily functions; our wellbeing, intelligence, energy and immune system depend on them, as well as building strong bones and teeth, blood, skin, hair, nerve function, muscle and for metabolic processes such as those that turn the food we eat into energy.
Dr Linus Pauling, a two times Laureate stated that “The root of all disease is directly related to a lack of minerals”. It has also been documented by eminent doctors that we require at least 60 (plant source) minerals to maintain a disease and ailment free state.
