If you aren’t aware of the crazy evolution of plants that are used in agriculture, now you have no excuse not to. Fellow wordpress blogger James Kennedy, a chemistry teacher in Australia, has crafted amazing infographics comparing modern-day watermelons and sweet corn to their ancient fore-fathers. The differences over time are astonishing. I first saw the James Kennedy blog featured in this vox.com article.
James Kennedy is certainly not a one trick pony. He has also created amazing infographics listing the chemical ingredients of all-natural fruit (the graphic for strawberries is below). These graphics are super informative, eye-opening, and perhaps have some agenda, left open for interpretation! Definitely check out the James Kennedy blog, the infographics, and all of his terrific posts.
