The Science of Nutrition in Food - Part 2

Jun 23, 2008
What has happened to our soil? The answer is oil and the act of harvesting!

The three deadly steps to the death of nutrition in our food are:

1-The synthesis of ammonium nitrate for weapons from natural gas after World War II found a new market - to increase food production by introducing it in a high NPK nitrogen application to grow vast amounts of food crops (mostly corn) - to the immediate detriment of the life in the soil. But even just harvesting without replenishing will reduce the population of soil micro organisms - the foundation of plant life.

2-As the ammonium nitrate began killing the soil, the crops were plentiful allowing the chemical industry to hide their work, but that work weakened the plants as essential nutrients were stripped by using only NPK fertilizers while not replenishing the trace elements. This allowed predators - bugs and bacteria - to target the weakening plants. Because this fertilization and harvesting practice stripped the soil of the remaining essential micronutrients, rock was no longer able to be processed by the dwindling micro organism population and the stage was set for industrial chemical factory farming.

3-Then petroleum based herbicides, pesticides and fungicides had to be applied to deal with the problem of predatory organisms due to the nutrient deprived, weakened plants which exterminated the bugs, the diseases and also the rest of the micro organisms putting everything out of natures balance, creating stronger predatory organisms and addicting agriculture to more powerful poisonous products of the oil companies.

So how do we repair our soil? The answer is micro nutrient minerals!

Life is a three tier system. The foundation is soil microorganisms on which all land life depends just like plankton in the ocean on which all ocean life depends. Plants are the bridge between the rocks and animals on land and in the sea. Plants depend on the life in the soil to draw on to grow. Animals depend on the soil and the plants for life. Destroying the foundation - the soil - ultimately has produced the vitamin supplement and the medical and pharmaceutical industry which has grown as a direct relationship to the introduction of petrochemical substances on soil over the same period. Our oceans have suffered for the same reason as these chemicals have drained into the rivers and out to sea.

A multi mineral soil replenishment can begin to reverse all of these problems. Growing food without petrochemicals is the safer way to grow food, chemical nitrogen based fertilizers don't specifically grow nutritional food molecules, micro minerals taken up into leaves in to chloroplasts are where plants produce nutrition.

You can rebuild your soil and control pests and disease in crops with simple and inexpensive methods. The way to start is to understand that what is missing you have to replace, harvesting has removed these minerals and depleted the soil. You don't need to rotate crops if you replenish the minerals you've taken out. Replenishing missing minerals in soil does two things; it restores nutrient value in food and restores the micro-organism population in soil. These minerals are called essential minerals because they are essential for the health and strength of both plants and micro-organisms. They will naturally help plants and organisms wards off disease and pests reducing or even eliminating the need for controlling pests.
