To answer the question, most people are not getting adequate vitamins and minerals in their diets. The reason many individuals are not getting enough nutrients can be attributed to the poor quality of conventionally grown produce and GMO foods. (GMO’s stands for genetically modified organisms.) These organisms are made in a lab and alter the genetic makeup of a plant or animal. Check out this article GMO Foods - What you need to knowfrom Consumer Reports for more information on GMO’s. Another reason for the lack of nutrients, is a diet relying on packaged food and the fast food industry for a considerable amount of calories per day. This type of diet will not provide what our systems need for nourishment.
