Modern technology is destroying the nutrient contents in fruits and vegetables that you need everyday.
Here are the facts.
The senate in United States warned the American people in 1936. Mineral depletion in the soil was getting worse as a result of "modern" farming. People were not getting the benefits of fruits and vegetables that used to be. This was proven by Yale, Rutgers, John Hopkins, Columbia and the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
"...countless human ills stem from the fact that impoverished soil of America no longer provides plant foods with mineral elements essential to human nourishment and health." -- by Dr. Northern
Here are more citations from this astonishing report...
"Our physical well-being is more directly dependent upon minerals we take into our systems than upon calories or vitamins, or upon precise proportions of starch, protein or carbohydrates we consume."
"Do you know that most of us today are suffering from certain dangerous diet deficiencies which cannot be remedied until depleted soils from which our food comes are brought into proper mineral balance?"
"Laboratory test prove that the fruits, the vegetables, the grains, the eggs, and even the milk and the meats of today are not what they were a few generations ago"
"It is not commonly realized, however, that vitamins control the body's appropriation of minerals, and in the absence of minerals they have no function to perform. Lacking vitamins, the system can make some use of minerals, but lacking minerals, vitamins are useless."
Since 1936, until now, no one has yet a solution to this decades old "high tech" problem.
In 1992, Earth Summit Report released data about mineral value declination in soils for the past 100 years: North America 85% South America 76% Europe 72% Asia 76% Africa 74% Australia 55%. The people in North America suffer most!
So, no one should overlook the benefits of vitamin supplements. It helps to balance out the discrepancies in our fruits and vegetables.
Still afraid of taking vitamin supplement pills? Why not take this easy test.
Here is an example; say the scientifically proven Oxxynea(R) based supplement.
If you like to know more details, check out from search engines by punching the correct keywords.
Oxxynea(R) is extracted from 22 fruits and vegetables. It has 5000 ORAC units per gram. Good enough for your daily needs.
Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) is a method to know the antioxidant power in biological samples.
Here is the challenge. It would take you at least 5 to 9 servings of fruits and vegetables per day to achieve 5000 ORAC intake.
Here is the problem. Most grown-ups cannot eat that much!
Still questioning the benefits of vitamin supplement pills?
Yes, overdoses could happen. You just have to follow the intake guidelines. Vitamin supplements usually offer you more benefits instead of harms, because any excess in your body is always passed in urine.
