Say it isn't so!

Can this be true?

Fruits and vegetables yielding fewer nutrients than in the past

No surprise. extensive farming industry focused on amount, using arificial fertilisers is producing much lower quality veggies and fruits. This reasearch is another proof of what is known.
This is why organic, home gardens are so valuable - they can produce veggies and fruits much more nutritious that these available in supermarkets.
Cheers,

Well doesn't that make you feel good about the slow growing things you have in your back garden. I will try harder to be patient from now on in the knowledge that my homegrown veges are producing extra nutrients. Thanks Stewart.

Some people can just eat some nutrition bars and they are good to go. I feel sorry for them. I love veggies!
