Fruit And Vegetables Sold In The UK Are ‘Half As Nutritious’ As 80 Years Ago


“Fruit and vegetables sold in the UK now contain half the amount of some key nutrients as they did in 1940, a major study reveals.” [Source:]


Conducted by researchers at Coventry University, this study compared the nutrients in 28 types of fruit and vegetables sold in the UK in 1940, 1991, and 2019. It found that levels of iron, magnesium, copper, potassium, calcium, and others were significantly depleted. The suspected causes include the shift to industrial forms of agriculture.

Crucially, the study findings are consistent with previous research carried out independently in other countries including the United States, Canada, the Netherlands, and Finland. In some countries the levels of nutrients were found to have fallen dramatically. As such, it has become clear that decreasing levels of nutrients in the food supply are now a global problem. Based on Dr. Rath’s Cellular Medicine discovery that nutrient deficiencies are the primary cause of chronic diseases, the findings from this research area have major implications for public health.
