The lack of natural fertiliser in the soil results in poor nutrition from fruit and vegetable crops and these poor quality crops then enter the food chain.

A wholistic outlook could be the answer to preventing dementia and depression, but that stops big pharma from making money. 

It is down to the individual to learn about nutrition and take responsibility for their own health. But we humans tend to get lazy and let things slide.
