Popeye was obsessed with spinach

Everytime he eats them he becomes ultra strong due to the vegetable's iron content.

Yes, spinach are healthy but they don't have that much iron.

What happened was that, back in the days, when the chemist Erich von Wolf was researching the amount of iron in green vegetables, he misplaced a decimal point.

From that moment on, 35 miligrams of iron in a 100g of spinach was the official number.

The real content is around 3.5 miligrams.

So if you want to become popeye you have to eat 10 times more!
