Its 100% true.. Especially magnesium is horribly deficient in soils and in humans.. 80+% of westeners are Mg deficient.
Monoculture is a blight.. It destroys soil dynamics long term and the soil biome and quickly becomes an artificial clinicised wasteland as petrochemical byproducts are sprayed on the ground to maintain it.
Its a bit like humans, you only eat one thing (say carbs) so you get an overgrowth of candida or staphylococcus lets say and then you're taking antibiotics and harsh antifungals which kill everything off in your microbiome, it can take someone several years to repair their gut biome in response to this ignorant short sighted approach to good diet.. Soils' the same.. Diversity is strength.
If you grow it yourself in real soil and its an heirloom it will be fine but the varieties the agricorps have been breeding for years just puts on water and sugar weight to produce big heavy fruits/leaves..
Nutrition and a long healthy life for consumers is not the priority for corporations, guess what it never was either.. Filling bellies for the highest profit is.
Also people have been conditioned into being taste pussies, everything is so bland and the phytochemistry we once ate these foods for has consitantly gone down..
