You are right, in that it is not likely. I suppose there will
always be people eating food from gardens, but as more and more
preservatives are being added to our food, artificial selection will favor
those with the higher tolerances for such additives. Those who are less
able to survive such chemicals will set a darwinian example, so to speak.

Maybe mercury will actually be pretty tasty in five hundred years.
