Can improving the health of our soil improve our health as people? David Montgomery, PhD, Anne Biklé, and Stephan Van Vliet, PhD, think that it might. Dr. Van Vliet’s research has shown that growing food and raising cattle in different environments significantly alters the nutrient composition.
And Dr. Montgomery and Anne wrote a book detailing how soil health can connect to human health. While the connection may not have firm scientific backing yet, it is a fascinating and important discussion as we consider the future of agriculture and farming.
