  4. Being working as a research paper writer in one of the leading online custom paper research writing website, now-a-days, i could be able to see such posts and images about the plants, fresh fruits and vegetables only like images in these blogs, posts and newspapers. The very main reason for such a drastic change is because of technology development most of them love to buy fresh vegetables and fruits from malls and super markets only and not from the farmers and so, only most of the persons living in metropolitan cities are dying out in the age of 50 to 60 itself due to various diseases as their bodies are having less disease resistance.
