Popeye’s myth. Spinach does NOT give you iron!

Sorry folks, Popeye was eating spinach for it’s beta carotene maybe, but not for it’s
iron content. Because. Spinach also contains high levels of oxalic acid which blocks
absorption of iron. Great for sufferers then of haemochromatosis that needs little iron
in the diet.
