Over the past century, cumulative decisions made on prioritization of biochemistry research, changing seed varietals, chemically growing foods and food processing have combined to substantially decrease the diversity of molecules in the food supply. They were lost because they were considered “unimportant” for life and therefor did not need to be conserved as modern agriculture evolved. A considerable amount of research now shows that these “unimportant” molecules play many critical roles in health maintenance and disease prevention. Just like in plants, these diverse molecules are antiviral, antibacterial, protect against oxidative stress, prevent cancer, promote mitochondrial function, increase excretion of toxic chemicals and metals—the list is long and growing and clinically very important.
