Gardening with Wally Richards: Confirmation

Supermarket produce opinion

I have in my articles and books for some years stated that our commercially grown food chain is poor in nutrition but high in chemical poisons.

I was please to see this week a scientific review that proves my comments have been right all along.

Here is what they said:

The Fall in the Nutrient Content of the Global Food Supply

While diet is being discussed as a contributory cause to the rise in cancer cases, important scientific evidence that could help explain the phenomenon would appear to be being ignored.

Of particular relevance are studies conducted in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Finland, and other countries, which show that the nutrient content of the global food supply has fallen significantly over the past 70 to 80 years.

The suspected causes of this include the increasing worldwide shift towards industrial forms of agriculture.

In some cases, the reduction in nutrient levels has been dramatic. Between 1951 and 1999, for example, the calcium content of broccoli in Canada fell by almost 63 percent.

Similarly, the vitamin A content of Canadian broccoli fell by almost 56 percent, with the vitamin B2 content falling by almost 43 percent and the vitamin B1 content by 40 percent.

Changes in nutrient levels for potatoes were also concerning, with iron and vitamin C content falling by over 57 percent, vitamin B2 by 50 percent, vitamin B3 by 45 percent and, most disturbingly of all, vitamin A by 100 percent.

With similar reductions being seen in other countries, it is unthinkable that this would not result in negative health consequences.

Significantly, therefore, Dr. Matthias Rath’s Cellular Medicine research has revealed that long-term deficiencies of vitamins, minerals, and other essential nutrients are the primary cause of chronic diseases such as cancer.

Based on this finding, a patented combination of nutrients has now been successfully tested against more than 55 different types of cancer cells.

Cutting-edge scientific studies carried out at the Dr. Rath Research Institute have demonstrated that these nutrients are able to inhibit cancer cell invasion and metastasis, cancer cell multiplication and tumor growth, the formation of new blood vessels to feed tumors (angiogenesis), as well as induce the natural death of cancer cells (apoptosis).

Reversing the worldwide rise in cancer cases will necessitate improving global nutrient intakes.

Achieving this for people of all ages could lead to a significant reduction in the overall number of cases, including those now being seen in younger people.

Towards this goal, as well as encouraging and facilitating the use of science-based nutrient supplementation, governments should also consider promoting organic agriculture.

Research shows that food produced organically contains higher levels of nutrients.

Well there it is in a nut shell….. people are getting sick and a contributing major cause is the stuff you buy in the super market which they try to con you into believing is Healthy & Fresh.

Tasteless and poison full is a better description as for fresh that too is a con as from the harvesting of vegetables to you buying at the supermarket is up to 7 days old.

The reason that the produce lacks in nutrition is because it is force grown with chemical fertilisers to obtain quick turn around and profits.

Back 60 plus years ago most market gardening in NZ was done by the best gardeners in the World, the Chinese, labour intensive using only natural plant foods which was mainly blood & bone, plants grew at their own pace taking up to twice as long as commercially grown plants these days.

During the longer growing time the plants took up minerals and elements naturally available in the soil, their feeding assisted by beneficial fungi and microbes along with zillions of earth worms.

The vegetables being naturally grown create their own defense mechanisms against disease attacks and insect pests.

‘Eating vegetables every day is important for health. They provide essential vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients, such as antioxidants and fiber.

Research consistently shows that people who eat at least five servings of vegetables a day have the lowest risk of many diseases, including cancer and heart disease.’ (from Internet)

We are fooled into thinking that the produce in the supermarket is going to give us a healthy outcome.

It is tasteless which is the first sign that it has little or no goodness so to make it palatable we smother it with condiments which contain, sugar, fats and salts, (pass the sauce so I can enjoy the taste of this stuff).

Fresh home grown naturally vegetables are brimming with flavour and goodness and the only way you avoid getting the benefit of them is by over cooking.

Steaming and stir fry is going to keep most of the goodness in where boiling will not and do not even mention Microwaving.

If you are going to boil healthy vegetables then best you drink the water they were boiled in when it cools down.

Naturally gown salad crops which we eat raw are first choice for good health but here is the real secret to obtain vegetables with high nutritional values and that is by putting into the growing medium all the minerals and elements known to mankind.

Last week I wrote about two major ones to do this, Ocean Solids applied to the soil at planting time and Magic Botanic Liquid sprayed regularly over the foliage as the vegetables grow.

Of course you also promote healthy soil by encouraging earthworms and soil life and not killing them with chlorinated water and chemical poisons.

I have a saying that I use to explain what I try to achieve; ‘Changing the World, Garden by Garden’

NOW: Two more things don’t forget to use Vaporgard, Spray on Frost Protection on your tender garden plants.

Avocado, passion fruit, Lime and citrus, tomatoes in glasshouses.

This week the Internet Radio station (RCR) that I have been doing my two weekly gardening hour with Rodney Hide has run into a problem of finance to keep up doing the good work they do giving interviews and information which we do not get from Main Stream Media.

(Recent survey says most people do not trust MSM anymore)

Radio Reality Check see this link.

They are off the air currently, but there is a short clip you can watch done by well known radio personality Peter Williams explaining why an alternative media is so important to keep us informed of the things that they do not want us to know.

I am proud to contribute and giving freely my time doing my sessions on gardening which has encouraged many people to get back into gardening or start gardening for their health and well being.

Please watch and if you have the means assist in any small way, Wally Richards.
