There has been so many changes to the food that we consume every day compared to what our ancestors used to eat. I believe part of the goal was to make hardier plants that will withstand pests (by covering our food with poison), or processing foods to last longer on the shelf (to the point of removing all of the nutrient value). The need to eat whole natural foods is a basic human necessity that seems to have been forgotten by the large corporations. I am glad to see that there is a growing trend, at least here in Ontario, for people to purchase organically grown food from small family farms.
