How to Bring Minerals Back Into the Soil and Food Supply (12 min)

Story at-a-glance

  • If you eat processed foods, you’re being exposed to toxic herbicides, which mounting evidence shows are instrumental in promoting chronic disease
  • The continual depletion of minerals in food matches the progressive implementation of agricultural practices like mechanization, nitrogen-heavy fertilizers, and pesticide use—all of which damage soils
  • In order to receive the same amount of iron you used to get from one apple in 1950, by 1998 you had to eat 26 apples
  • Ionic mineral extractions from ocean water can be used in sustainable agriculture to remineralize damaged soils, and increase the nutrition of foods grown in it
