Dr. Bogs covers all aspects of what makes food more nutritious and shows that even foods produced under certified organic systems often have little more nutrition than their conventionally grown counterparts. Throughout the book, Dr. Bogs reveals how our personal health is directly tied to the nutritional value of the food we eat and how that value directly ties to the health of the soil in which the food was grown.
