JF, in your opinion, what are the most common deficiencies people eating a western diet would experience?[/quote]
It’s not opinion, here are some stats
68% of the population is deficient in calcium, 90% in chromium, 75% in magnesium, 80% in vitamin B6, and 95% in omega-3 fats.
I’m sure the list could be expanded, it’s just one I’ve run across.
oh, and don’t forget Vit D, around 70% of us are deficient there as well… funny how lard which we were told was bad for us has probably the highest amount of Vit D of any food (IIRC).
