Spinach Fixes Everything for Me
This isn't some silly jab or a Pop Eye joke. Literally since I turned 18 and had access to a dining hall in college (yeah, I hit the big time.... ; p) A bowl of spinach with Italian or ranch dressing as always made me feel healthier. This is when my eating habits were legitimately bad (Legitimately bad, like fast food 3-4 times a week, then once I got to the dining halls it was just a lot of trashy food because they taste better).

Does anyone have any discussions on this topic? Also my freshman year apparently there was some huge discovery as random people from the Honors dorm I lived in invited me this Sorority event that showed spinach cured some girl form of cancer. Of course I was walking to a flag football game so I had no idea why this was relevant to me.

I would like thoughts on this from a doctor, as I am not a doctor.

I'm not a doctor, and I'm not going to respond to the topic other than saying if you eat too much spinach (way too much ;) ) you can get Hemochromatosis.

My school's dinning facilities were so awful, and being forced to pay for an "unlimited" meal plan all of freshman year, I lost weight and came out of freshman year very very very underweight (6', 135 lbs), which sparked my entrance to the iron world and a marginally healthier weight. I hated that food so much...

Too much raw spinach could present problems, like kidney stones, in the future.

Very high in oxalates.

Eat most of your spinach cooked.
