Get Understanding

With all your getting, get understanding.
What should we understand?
We had better learn to understand one another much better.
We had best.


To learn.
Cooperate to learn.
Organize to learn.
Learn to organize.
Learn to cooperate.
Organize to learn.

Where can I get information on changes in the nutritional value of truck crops over time? I'm especially interested in data from recent decades, but am also interested in older data.
Who handles such research?

Who Gives a Floss

Some mothers, fathers, citizens, and eaters care about the quality of our food. Some have an interest in how the nutritional value of our food has fared over the years. Some are interested in the changes in nutritional value of truck crops over the decades, especially recent decades.

As tax paying citizens we sponsor institutions that one would think would have some interest in changes in the nutritional value of our food. I haven't been able to find any. For Example:
U. S. Dept. of Agriculture;
Nutritional Data Laboratory of the Agricultural Research Service;
Fruit and Vegetable Division of the Agricultural Marketing Service;
do not tabulate the nutritional value of our food over time. Well, it does all changes to shit. Wonder who is interested in changes in shit. I remember a study of pigs .....

Even now, when deliberate genetic changes account for great changes in nutritive values of truck crops (fruit and vegetables), organizations such as: Fruit and Vegetable Chemistry Research, ARS, USDA, Pasadena, CA; Vegetable Production Research, ARS, USDA, Salinas, CA; College of Natural and Agricultural Sciences, U. of Calif., Riverside; do no longitudinal studies on the nutritional value of food.

I remember having cared.

A Quote

I suspect its largely true.

"On December 5, 1915, Lieutenant A. D. Cunningham of the Royal Nave Air Service playfully flicked his finger against his airships fabric covering. The resulting sound, which he then mimicked, sounded like "blimp." Thus a word was born,"
