Unless you grow your own fruits and vegetables and eat them raw the same day you pick them, you're not getting what nature intended.|
Although they look great and taste fresh you just don't know what's in there.
#1) Bad Eating Habits -- According to Professor Gladys Block at U.C. Berkeley, "Only 9% of the population
eats the recommended five servings of fruit and vegetables daily."
#2) Cooking and Food Preparation -- Most people don't like their food raw, so they cook it. Did you know that 20 to 50% of vitamins are destroyed in the
Thiamine ... 20%-45% Niacin ... 20%-40%
Riboflavin ... 20%-40% Vitamin C ... 25%-50%
--from "Diet & Disease", E. Cheraskin M.D., D.M.D. et al, 1977
#3) Transport & Storage -- Dr. Michael Colgan tested oranges that had been picked the same day, and their vitamin C content was 180 mg. He then tested oranges from the
same grower which had been in storage at a local supermarket. They looked and tasted the same, but the vitamin C content had dropped to zero. How much vitamin C is in your orange?
