The only difference between the Earth and its moon is about one inch of topsoil. But even that is becoming thinner (at a rate of 3.5< billion tons per year lost with man-induced erosion) and weaker.

It's becoming weaker because crops, which pull some 70 plus minerals from the soil, end up in the sewer or land-fill, not back on the land to replenish it. About the only thing used on the farmer's field now is NPK (Nitrogen-Phosphorus-Potassium) fertilizer, which drugs genetically tailored crops into prodigious growth. About 250 pounds of this fertilizer per person is slathered on the land every year. Problem is, these swollen muscle-bound plants are mineral- and vitamin-impoverished.

When we eat them we become nutritionally impoverished as well, even though we may bloat with the caloric glut that is available to us. Minerals are particularly important because we (and our animal friends we have domesticated) are incapable of synthesizing them.
The solution is to buy organic whenever possible. Organic farmers are aware of the living nature of the land and seek to build its health rather than drug it into sterility as industrialized agriculture does. Additionally, broad-spectrum mineral supplementation is important. This doesn't mean a few iron and calcium capsules, but rather supplements that contain the full range of 70 plus minerals thought to be important in nutrition.
An excellent major mineral supplement is Orgamin, containing calcium, phosphorus, magnesium and sulfur from natural sources.

An excellent trace mineral source is Chelamin. Chelamin is a combination of ancient geologically composted sea vegetation containing over 74 naturally complexed and chelated minerals. It is mined from ancient pre-pollution deposits created when the seas retreated from the North American continent.
Another excellent source is Whole Salt. It too contains Chelamin as well as mineral rich salt mined from similar deposits. Incidentally, this is a salt that really tastes good. Use it for awhile, then try your regular table salt and you'll see what I mean.

We try to build natural chelated mineral nutrition into all of our products. Thus, for example, you'll find Chelamin and Whole Salt in our Peanut Butter Plus and in our pet and horse foods.

Go to  (select Education, then go to Product Monographs) and read the Chelamin and Whole Salt monographs (here you'll also learn that natural salt is healthy, not deleterious) to learn more about the importance of mineral nutrition.
