Soils gets depleted with mono agriculture

U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) nutritional values for fruits and vegetables today compared to 1975.2

Here’s the loss of vitamins and minerals:

Apples: Vitamin A is down 41%
Sweet peppers: Vitamin C is down 31%
Watercress: Iron is down 88%
Broccoli: Calcium and Vitamin A are down 50%
Cauliflower: Vitamin C is down 45%, Vitamin B1 is down 48%, and Vitamin B2 is down 47%
Collard greens: Vitamin A is down 45%, Potassium is down 60%, and Magnesium is down 85%

According to USDA’s own numbers, the vitamin and mineral content has dramatically plummeted – in just 30 years!

If the soil doesn’t have minerals, there’s no way for vegetables to absorb them.
