I am sure that everyone still remember Popeye the sailor, his pipe, his whistle, and without a doubt, his secret for super strength – spinach.
“I’m strong to the finish ’cause I eats me spinach.” ― Popeye the Sailor Man
Why spinach? Well, back then spinach was superfood. Many people in the Thirties believed spinach held 10 times more iron than it really did. And this is all because of a scientific mistake – a misplaced decimal point in an 1870 medical journal. In reality spinach may not have been as powerful as they thought, however, it is still something good to consume, being rich in both vitamins and minerals.
