Why are Modern Foods Less Nutritious?

Our soils are dying, and with them, the nutrients in food are decreasing.

Today’s food is far less nutritious than it was just 50 years ago. We’ve all heard the stats by now. “You have to eat 8 oranges in the modern day to get the same amount of Vitamin A as your grandfather’s oranges”.

Turns out that the science shows similar stats across the board.
