Food Myths

I ask you. What can you believe in if you can’t believe in the superior goodness of iron-rich spinach?

This is an interesting piece from The Guardian about the influence lobbyists and the government have had in (mis)shaping our beliefs about nutrition. Makes you wonder what nutrition beliefs are next to be debunked. If it’s potatoes, this Irish girl will weep.

The article includes a great old video about Popeye, heroism, bullies and gloppy cans of spinach.I hope you’ll watch it. It’s fun.
