American Journal of Natural Medicine

From September 2002 article by Patrick Quillan, PhD:

“The assumption that human technology could improve on the wisdom of Nature has become a primary cause of disease  in the modern world.  We dissect food, take out the most glaringly obvious parts, attempt to recreate them in a laboratory, and label them as ‘active ingredients.’  In fact, it is the symphony of nutrients working synergistically that provides the quantum healing power of whole foods.”

I think this is an important concept.  I prefer to take in nutrients that are as close to their original form as possible.  They present with all the necessary cofactors to be digested more easily, absorb more readily, and utilized more completely.  Hard to improve on that.
