The surprising truth about our fruits and veggies

facts about modern food you never knew:

  • Modern corn: When it was bred, it was called “candy corn” because many varieties of corn are now 40% sugar
  • Original wild apples have a staggering 100 times more phytonutrients than the Golden Delicious in our supermarkets
  • We would have to eat 8 oranges to get the same nutrition as one just 50 years ago
  • We would need to eat 10 tomatoes in 1991 to get the same copper intake as one tomato in 1940
  • Oranges are unknown in the wild. They are a hybrid of tangerines and the pomelo or “Chinese grapefruit” (which is pale green or yellow) and were first cultivated in southeast Asia
  • All navel oranges come from the same tree and have been genetically cloned for 200 years

NUTRIENTS ARE DROPPING:

From 1975 to 2000 the levels of nutrients in fresh vegetables dropped:

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?

Much of our modern fruit has been bred to be seedless and have so much sugar, it’s basically like eating candy. Modern grapes are closer to sacks of water and sugar than they are to their more nutrient-dense and less sweet wild counterparts. Even vegetables like potatoes and corn can raise your blood sugars faster than a can of Coca-Cola (85 on the glycemic index versus 67 for a 12 oz can).

WE NEED TO COMPENSATE BY EATING MORE VEGGIES TO GET THE NUTRITION WE NEED

80% of the food in our grocery stores did not even exist 100 years ago. We’ve drastically reduced the nutrients and increased the sugar and starch content of hundreds of fruits and vegetables with modern agriculture. Worse, the nutrient and phytonutrient content is much lower today, so it’s vital that we eat much MORE of the right kinds of vegetables and low-sugar fruits!
