Vitamins A, B or C, Omega 3, trace elements, iron ...
The nutrients are essential to our body and its longevity. Several studies alert us to the weakness of fruit and vegetables "modern" nutrients.
WHILE A PEACH WAS ENOUGH IN 1950 TO ABSORB A GOOD RATIO OF VITAMIN A, TODAY WE NEED TO EAT 20!
Where are these vitamins? What the researchers say ? Does the food industry benefit?
Basta conducted the survey.
"Eat at least 5 fruits and vegetables a day," recommends the National Health Nutrition Program.
Perhaps we will soon need to eat 50 ...
From the nutrients side, our food seem to show some weaknesses.
Take an orange: The 2000’s one will probably look better than oranges of the 1950’s. However... THE MODERN ORANGE CONTAINS 5 TIMES LESS IRON....
The same for peaches. Several studies show that loss of "nutrient density".
The problem of nutrient density loss for fruits and vegetables began to be raised in the US, Canada and Great Britain.
Vitamin A: 1 Peache in 1950 = 26 peaches in 2010
Since 1950, researchers measure the nutritional content of food.
So in the 1950’s, eating a banana, an orange and a peach, was enough to fill the "recommended daily allowance" (RDA) of vitamin for a person.
TODAY, GIVEN NUTRIENT CONTENT, IT SHOULD BE 5 BANANAS, 10 ORANGES AND 26 PEACHES TO HAVE THE DOSE OF VITAMIN A!
