Can Organic Feed the World?
Or should the question be, "Can conventional feed the world?"
The green revolution heralded the arrival of chemical fertilizers and the meriad of chemicals to combat weeds, pest and diseases. The big push was on for bigger and greater yields. Advances in shipping and globalization led to variety improvements designed to improve shippability, handling and storage.
All the while, important nutrient content declined. Malnutrition deminished immune systems leading to increased illness, disease and other health problems. Besides the loss of vitamins and essential trace elements, our bodies are storing toxic chemicals.
Some of the earliest realization came in the early 1900s during wars as nearly 50% of enrolling military were refused because of unfittness. No study was done to determine the cause although there were voices pointing towards poor diet. With this nutritional decline fully realized today, there is still the deep-pocketed voices of denial.
