Regenerative Farming: Restoring Soil Health and Saving Americans From Cancer, Chronic Disease

Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola Fact Checked

Story at-a-glance -

  • The documentary “Farmer’s Footprint / Regeneration: The Beginning” highlights the failure of chemical-dependent agriculture, and how through regenerative farming, America’s farmers can build healthy soil, restore ecosystems and promote human health
  • The film features Allen Williams, Ph.D., a sixth-generation family farmer who has consulted with more than 4,200 farmers and ranchers in the U.S. on soil health, cover-cropping, livestock integration, grazing management and other regenerative agriculture practices
  • “Farmer’s Footprint” shows the story of the Breitkreutz family and how they kicked chemicals to the curb and transitioned from conventional farming to regenerative agriculture in Redwood Falls, Minnesota
  • The film features Dr. Zach Bush, a triple board-certified physician with expertise in internal medicine, endocrinology and metabolism and hospice/palliative care, who believes industrial farming is one of the main drivers of cancer and chronic disease
  • An explosion of cancer incidence in the U.S. correlates with the introduction of glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup weedkiller, on food crops

The featured film, "Farmer's Footprint / Regeneration: The Beginning," highlights the failure of our chemical-dependent food and farming system, and how it degrades our soils, pollutes our air and water, and is the main driver of soaring cancer rates and chronic disease in America.

The film, however, offers a solution: regenerative agriculture, a return to what organic was originally all about, namely the protection and rebuilding of topsoil and ecological biodiversity.
