Today’s technology could theoretically provide all of our nutrients in a pill or powder. Think about what’s in a multi-vitamin and mineral supplement: plenty of RDA goodies in there. Fish oil? Sure, can take a tablespoon of that, or even put it in a vitamin. Phytonutrients? Sure, got those in another powder.
Then why eat? Do we really need actual food? Wouldn’t it be more convenient to just drink some pills and powder in our hectic life? Is our food just about the individual vitamins, minerals and nutrients, or is there something more that suggests they all work with one another in some sort of balance that nature has already provided? Science suggests that nature has had it right all along.
