I found this news release alarming. Can someone please test the nutrient density of this produce? Can we really produce healthy food without soil and sunshine? I don’t want to eat this stuff!
As my colleague states ever so simply:
Watch or read the work of Dr Daphne Miller. The microbes, in number and diversity, are important for nutrient, immunity and mood (love).
Comparisons of urban versus farm environments found less asthma in children on the farm. Less asthma =more diversity and number of microbes. And this is just the beginning.
A microscopic look at the gut looks similar to soil. Hydroponics without soil may have similar nutrients but lacks the microbial life. (Ruth Knight, Organic Consultant Inc.)
