our grandparents lived in better times than us as there was no pollution in that time
the crops were healthy and the soil fertile

My friend it can never be said that our grandparents lived a better times than us.
After all they did not high level technology which we use today
They just did not have a life.
It is rightly said by Arthur C. Clarke that "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."

yes, but we know more about diseases and we know how to cure them. Plus, there was war back then. and the technology is getting better and better. as i say: We live in a better generation because of our improved nation.

what do u mean by "technology"?? it is because our technology that our earth is facing global warming! and though they didn't have technology they had a happy and peaceful life..they lived for 100s of years but now-a-days our average life span has become around 70yrs..new new diseases are arising which even the doctors are not aware of! so i strongly say tat our forefathers had a better life than us!!!
