It is a reflection of where it is grown, how it is grown, and how it is eaten. The role of soil appears paramount. American soil quality is depleted of vital nutrients because of industrial agricultural practices that interfere with natural ecosystems, self-sustaining of high nutrient density plants. Relatedly, fungicides and biocides have decimated the microbial ecology of the soil in ways that fundamentally derail plant-based communication about the botanical environment. Plants are a dynamic reflection of their own microbiomes, passing vital information about shared environments onto human consumers.
