Changing crop magnesium concentrations: impact on human health

Abstract

Decreasing mineral concentrations in high-yield grains of the Green Revolution have coincided in time with rising global cardiovascular disease (CVD) mortality rates. Given the Magnesium (Mg) Hypothesis of CVD, it’s important to assess any changes in food crop Mg concentrations over the past 50+ years. Using current and historical published sources, Mg… (More)
