Plants Are Medicine

Remember the days of old school cartoons when Popeye the Sailor man ate his spinach, grew superhuman muscles, and out-strengthened his arch rival Bruno when he was up to no good? Popeye didn’t eat steak, nor did he eat pasta. He ate spinach.
Plants give us strength. They give us energy. They give us life.
