Our diets fall short of providing us with the nutrients we need
Concern for micronutrient adequacy from food alone is not a new question. Excerpts 70 years ago (1936) from the 2nd Session of the 74th USA Congressional Record (excerpts) stated:
“Laboratory tests prove that the fruits, the vegetables, the grains, the eggs and even the milk and the meats of today are not what they were a few generations ago (which doubtless explains how our forefathers thrived on a selection of foods that would starve us today).”
“It is bad news to learn from our leading authorities that 99% of the American people are deficient in these minerals, and that a marked deficiency in any one or more of these important minerals actually results in disease. Any upset of the balance, any considerable lack of one or another nutrient, however microscopic the body requirement may be, will sicken, suffer, and shorten our lives.”
Food alone may not provide sufficient micronutrients for preventing deficiency JINT Soc Sports Nutr. 2006; 3(1):51-55
