    Grow a garden. take something from it, let it sit for a week. buy the same thing in a store and have a taste comparison.


    Wonder bread used to say; "with 24 essential vitamins and minerals" then it was 8, now it's bad for you to eat.




    this was an issue in the 70's

    Agriculture has become terraculture. The soil is barren, and anymore it merely serves to support the plants' root systems.

    Years ago I was burying pipeline across a farm field, maybe a couple hundred yards. I followed the trench kicking up dirt now and then. Never saw one insect or worm.
