2 The Benefits of Spinach for Health

Around 10-15 years ago (maybe until now), there is very popular children's animated film, the title is 'Popeye the Sailor Man'. This film tells the story of a sailor named Popeye. Actually, he is a common sailor, but when he consumes spinach he can become very strong. After eating spinach, his muscles suddenly enlarged, especially in the arms and upper chest.

Popeye has a girlfriend named Olive. But his relationship with Olive is often interrupted by his nemesis named Brutus. On the other hand, Brutus himself also likes Olive. However, Olive prefers Popeye because Popeye is a good person while Brutus is a bad person.

Inspiration from Popeye

Because Brutus often teased Olive, in the end Popeye did not accept that. He wants to beat Brutus. In the initial battle, Brutus can beat Popeye easily. Brutus is far stronger than Popeye. However, after Popeye ate spinach, the conditions turn around. Popeye suddenly became very strong. With that strength, Popeye was finally able to beat Brutus.
