Before anyone asks, I'm in Russia, and non-organic greens are pretty pricey here, and there's only one place I know where I can buy organic greens.
So I've been looking through DR's posts on Facebook and found this table:
I was surprised because I thought that soils were in better shape and plants would somehow get minerals from earth. Looks like I were being over-optimistic about it.
So, does this table mean that eating non-organic greens is pretty much waste of money? I know Dr. Doug would call this approach 'short-sighted', but still, if there are nearly no minerals, will I miss anything if I stop buying non-organic greens and live without them until I get the opportunity to buy organic ones?
good question, I will keep an eye on this post, I get non organic stuff at times and after looking at that chart, it hardly seems worth it, especially tomatoes!
Maybe you might just eat a few herbs additionally or instead? Dandelion, Nettle etc.? Nature offers them for free and their nutritional value is higher compared to purchased stuff. (Note: I'm not sure if such herbs are 811.)
Herbs don't qualify as optimal human food, as I've read. Can't make a meal out of something - don't eat it.
