Popeye Vindicated On Spinach Controversy

 

Popeye the Sailor is a fictional cartoon character created by Elzie Crisler Segar. The character first appeared in the daily King Features comic strip, Thimble Theatre, on January 17, 1929

Since first appearance he has been a strong advocate of the health benefits of spinach. Scientist in the late sixties indeed classified spinach as a super veggie giving  proof of popeyes extraordinary claims.

Recently scientists have discovered a way to turn spinach leaves into heart tissue. Researchers have successfully used spinach leaves to build functioning human heart tissue, complete with veins that can transport blood. Which brings home the ability of nature and man working in concert to prolong lives.

Also recently in the news is a study which showed a dramatic increase in some types of cancer in young millennials on the rise.  Stomach, colon and intestinal cancers have all increased in recent case studies by various groups.  More here

All this only encourages Popeye’s peep’s to give a younger generation a healthier way of eating. I encourage all my readers to share this with your children and young adults. You can do even more I think by  watching the man himself who happens to be 98 years young explain it all in his own unique way.
