Commercial Fruits and Vegetables are grown in soil that has been depleted of more than 80% of the minerals and micro-organisms. This leads to fruits and vegetables that contain 80% less vitamins and minerals (when compared to Organically grown produce). You may think you are eating healthy but the truth is you are probably lacking many key nutrients in your diet.
The fruits and vegetables we eat are very sick, they do not contain adequate nutrition. Nature’s way of solving this problem is to send bugs and insects in to attack the plants and return them back to the soil. Commercial Farmers obviously want to protect their crops so they use a wide range of pesticides, herbicides and fungicides to eliminate the bugs and insects from destroying the crops. When you eat commercially grown fruits and vegetables you are getting very little nutritional value and you are filling your body with a wide range of toxins that are detrimental to your health.
The transit time from commercial farm to your local grocery store can often be weeks (or many months). To slow the ripening process fruits and vegetables are coated with a toxic array of chemicals. Many fruits and vegetables are also artificially coloured to ensure they appear healthy and edible (have you ever noticed the waxy residue on apples? This is a toxic combination of chemicals to enhance appearance and slow down the ripening process).
So what can you do about this? Buy organic where possible. Grow what you can from home. There are good nutritional supplements on the market that can make a big difference to your health.
