Do you Oligo?

“Our physical well-being is more directly dependent upon minerals we take into our systems than upon calories or vitamins, or upon precise proportions of starch, protein, or carbohydrates we consume. The fact is that foods (fruits, vegetables, and grains) now being raised on millions of acres of land that no longer contains enough minerals are starving us (of good nutrition)----no matter how much we eat them….. We know that vitamins are complex chemical substances which are indispensable to nutrition, and that each of them is of importance for normal function of some special structure in the body. Disorder and disease result from any vitamin deficiency. It is not commonly realized, however, that vitamins control the body’s appropriation of minerals, and in the absence of minerals, they have no function to perform. Lacking vitamins, the system can make some use of minerals, but lacking minerals, vitamins are useless (Senate Document No. 264, 1936).
