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..

The soils are definitely depleted and saturated with chems like glyphosate. But a lot of the reason many fruits and vegetables taste like bland crap is because of the growth hormones and PGRs they use, just like PGRs commercial weed growers use that grow fat dark green nugs that lack essential oils, it's the same deal with fruits and veggies.

Like if you see a bunch of plump really colorful apples and they all look perfect and identical its cause sketchy chems were used to make it explode in growth but it's going to taste like styrofoam and have the nutritional value of a potato.

A while back I remember reading about watermelons growers in China that were using a PGR so powerful it was causing the watermelons to literally explode.

Theres a lot of crazy shit in the stuff we eat these days but I'm I think I'm more concerned about the chemicals and hormones lurking in our food than the vitamins its lacking.
