Real Culprit

Dear Sir, i fully agree that under the present circumstances, in today's way of gauging the food quality,the culprits could be the salt or trans fats, but we need to research further & trace the real culprit. In my opinion all the problem stars from the way we farm. The indiscriminate amount of chemicals used in producing crops need to be investigated. The chemicals are continuously attacking our immune system & weaken the endurance of body which is the real culprit.My request to the author is to look into the health issue holistically or in accordance with Ayurveda starting from recommendation of fertilizers by agriculture universities.
