Another thing is nutrition. Our bones are not as strong as years past because there is not the level of minerals in the food as there once was due to depleted soil. The USA has lost 70% of it's top soil and it will take millions of years to replace naturally what has been lost. Beyond the obvious loss of top soil is the issue of the remaining soil has been demineralized by mono crop planting. Modern agriculture is a ticking time bomb. Our farming practice are unsustainable. Todays youth will be the first generation that will have a lower life expectancy than their parents.
