agricultural yield dilution

This chart says it all.

It shows the woefully low point to which American agriculture has sunk. It shows the steady decline in mineral content of a cross-section of food crops since the 1930’s. (In case your chemistry knowledge is a bit rusty, the minerals charted are calcium, phosphorus, iron, potassium, magnesium and copper.)

Meanwhile, here’s another grim set of statistics that shows estimates of the percent of Americans who aren’t consuming adequate levels of these nutrients or who are deficient:

Calcium ………………………….. 60% ……………………………….learn more

Phosphorus ……………………. deficiency uncommon ………. learn more

Iron ……………………………….. 10% (among women) ……….. learn more

Potassium ……………………. 98% (!) inadequate dietary intake …….. learn more

Magnesium ……………………45% ………………………………………learn more

Copper ………………………… 25% ………………………………….. learn more
