What if I told you we would have to eat eight oranges today to get the same amount of vitamin C our grandparents received from just one orange? It’s time to take your nutrition into your own hands and start growing your own rich, colourful and sustainable garden.
Fruit and vegetables are picked when slightly unripe, sprayed with chemicals, waxed, boxed, stacked on pallets and kept in a cold store for up to 12 months. So when you think you’re eating healthily and buying ‘fresh’ food, you are possibly buying fruit that was picked over a year ago. The use of a synthetic produce quality ‘enhancer’ containing 1-methylcyclopropene to prevent ripening is now widely used in over 30 countries, including the US, Canada, UK, Australia and European Union. The longer produce is in storage the more its nutritional value deteriorates. Comparing the nutritional data of produce over the last 50 years shows a reliable decline in the amount of protein, calcium, iron, magnesium, vitamins and other micronutrients.
Petroleum-based wax, used to preserve fruit and vegetables, is also used on produce including cucumbers, potatoes, oranges, bell peppers, limes, lemons, aubergines and courgettes. This coating locks in any pesticides and herbicides used when growing the plants, making it very difficult to remove when washing at home. Even when you peel your fruit and vegetables they have often been sitting in storage so long that the pesticides have soaked all the way through, so even if you remove the skin you’re at risk of eating pesticides residue.
Additionally, overseas shipping causes air pollution, affecting the health of humans, animals, and the environment.
The recent pandemic showed us that in uncertain times, grocery stores may not have everything your family needs.
