I found this documentary when it first came out but it was only available in French.

This is vital information that everyone should understand - the vitamin and mineral content of fruit and vegetables has massively diminished over the last century. It's why we need to change our farming practices and it's one reason everyone needs to take supplements.

Sixty years of standardised fruit and vegetable production and the creation of industrial hybrids have had a dramatic impact on their nutritional content. In the last 50 years, they have lost 27% of their vitamin C and almost half their iron. The tomato, for example: through multiple hybridisations, scientists are constantly producing redder, smoother, and firmer fruits. In the process, however, a quarter of the calcium and more than half of the vitamins have been lost.

The seeds that give rise to the fruits and vegetables we eat are now owned by a handful of multinationals, such as Bayer and Dow-Dupont. These multinationals produce their seeds mainly in India, where workers earn just a few rupees, while the company has a turnover of more than 2 billion euros. A globalised business where seeds are more expensive than gold. According to the FAO, 75% of cultivated varieties have disappeared in the last 100 years.
Loss of nutrients, privatization of life. This documentary presents the great monopoly of the industry on our fruits and vegetables.

Anyone manage to download this?

I got it in a couple of minutes and it works well and looks good.

My seedbox is set by default to upload at 15kb/s after a ratio of 1.0 shared :)
I've changed this to 2.5.
I posted the torrent and went to sleep, I forgot to change the ratio and upload speed for this torrent until I saw your message this morning.

Looks like it'll be popular!

This was really interesting. As these agricultural corporations hybridize these fruits and vegetables, the nutritional value, as well as the taste, decreases - especially in tomatoes. Everybody knows that garden-grown tomatoes taste better, but I didn't realize that is also because they contain more vitamins etc.
