Dr. Jones explains how the main creators of humus are specialized fungi that plants feed sugars and other complexed nutrients. These fungi, in turn, help feed plants both nutrients and moisture.
Dr. Charles Northen demonstrated that countless human ills stem from the fact that the impoverished soil of America no longer provides plant foods with the mineral elements essential to human nourishment and health! To overcome this alarming condition, he doctors sick soil and, by seeming miracles, raises truly healthy and health-giving fruits and vegetables.
Albrecht published hundreds of papers in agriculture and health-related journals. He also wrote a many years long series of monthly articles in Let's Live!, a popular health magazine. A collection of similar papers (without the Let's Live! articles), is published in-print on-paper by Acres, USA as The Albrecht Papers in four volumes.
