>>Dear fellow Taxacomers:
>>Spinach is good for you. It adds roughage to your gut, its iron and other
>>minerals is readily taken up by the organism, other nutrient values make it
>>desirable. It is still highly recommended in diets requiring enriched intake
>>of Calcium, iron, folic acid and some vitamins.
>>Popeye was designed for reasons of economy during World War II. Spinach is
>>to grow, it grows fast, its nutritive and takes a lot of boiling, mashing
>>and canning. In times of scarcity, it helps one to feel like "something in
>>actually hanging to your ribs". For its nutritional value, easy preparation,
>>etc. it was deemed worthy of a campaign to promote its consumption. For the
>>benefit of children, the strong and funny Popeye and peripheral personae
>>like Olive, and the baby of unknown parentage, came into existence.
>>Take it from an avid spinach eater.
