Generally, land is only good for 7 to 10 years, befor being depleted of it's minerals. When land is constantly farmed, over and over, year after year, it produce nutritionally void foods. Plants, with just the basics of fertilizers, healthy "looking" vegetables can be grown. Plants take up minerals from the soil and when we eat those vegetables, we get all those vitamins and minerals. When the soil becomes depleted, so do the vegetables and when we eat them we get little nutrition from them anymore. When humans are deficient in minerals and vitamins, they are more open to catching viruses, cancer growth, and hundreds of other ailments. Plants are the same way. Bugs and insects generally attack "sick" plants, those that are lacking in nutritional value, hence the need for heavy spraying of insecticides, while any healthy plant is not attacked. I believe that there was a government report decades ago, that stated that the farmlands were depleted of nutritional value, and thus so, the vegetables. And now they want to make vitimin supliments a "controlled" substance!
