If there is one word that covers nearly all the changes industrialization has made to the food chain, it would be simplification. Living naturally means getting out for a walk through a wooded path, as growing numbers of health providers are advising, following studies suggesting improved function from all we take in by way of the soil, air, lighting and. The vast monocultures that now feed us require tremendous amounts of chemical fertilizers and pesticides to keep from collapsing. The Age of Nutritionism had arrived.
