leafy green vegetables

I saw an ad today about an article that says leafy green vegetables will prevent osteoporosis. It makes sense, sure, because they have calcium in them.

But my question is, why do leafy green vegetables seem to be the answer for just about everything?

And why do they go bad so quickly? I throw away a lot leafy green vegetables because they go bad in the two or three days it takes me to get to them after I bring them home from the store.

I saw red Swiss Chard planted as an ornamental in a flower bed the other day. I'm not kidding. And it made me really laugh. Someone apparently thought leafy green veg was even the answer to "What next?" in the landscaping.

  1. They do go bad quickly, but nothing goes bad as fast as pears.
