Health: Superfoods

We’ve all heard about the “superfoods” that promise health benefits, seemingly just by purchasing the (often expensive) fruits and vegetables. One of the new foods that have exploded in popularity is quinoa, which you may have heard pronounced as quinn-ow-wa at some point. The actual pronunciation, keen-wa, has become increasingly popular, as the grain has been touted as a “superfood” by Dr. Mehmet Oz and as a tool for fighting world hunger by the United Nations. Some dieticians, however, have been increasingly wary of these superfoods; they believe that the word “superfood” is simply a marketing gimmick. Sticking with traditional broccoli and spinach, or “healthy foods,” may be the best way to stay salubrious.
