Fruit that kills Diabetes

The relationship between plants and man has grown distant in the modern era of chemical treatments. Instead of observing, listening and understanding the language of his crops, man has instead resorted to spraying them with pesticides, suppressing plant immune systems. Spraying plants with chemicals might save a farmer time in the short term, but these broad measures overlook the underlying, individual plant nutrition problems.

For one Amish farmer, those problems almost cost him his 66-acre farm. His homestead, passed down through five generations, was on the verge of coming undone. His crops were plagued by fungus and pests that chemical pesticides couldn't halt. In fact, the pesticides were perpetuating the problems in his plants, suppressing their natural immune systems while hiding the underlying problem of poor plant nutrition.
