Quarter Of Americans Have Never Eaten Vegetables?
The most popular vegetable in America is — corn! That’s according to a survey of 2,000 Americans who were asked which vegetables they liked and disliked the most. However, it turns out the most surprising result of the study may be that a staggering number of adults haven’t eaten any vegetables their entire lives.

Overall, a whopping 91.4% of respondents enjoy eating corn. Potatoes came in an extremely close second at 91.2%, while carrots and tomatoes were tied for the third-most-liked vegetable at 89%. Rounding out the top five are onions and green beans, which tied as the fifth-most popular veggies (87%) according to the survey, which was commissioned on behalf of by Dr. Praeger’s.

On the other side of the spectrum, the most hated vegetable is turnips. Nearly three in ten respondents (27%) say they dislike the root veggie. Beets were a close second on the dislike list, at ...

Beef is definitely a blessing, Mike. Man shall not live by taters, maters and nanners alone.

I don’t know if tater chips are a vegetable, J4J, but bread pudding definitely counts as fruit if you add some raisins to it.

RIGHT... The survey reveals that lying has reached an epidemic in America. Most condiments are vegetable based. Lettuce and tomato are found in most hamburgers, wraps, hoagies, subs, and sandwiches. Most pizza has some type of vegetable and tomato sauce. Salads. Smoothies.

So maybe not consciously lying, but definitely ignorance; the result of public schools dumbing-down the population.

Well, I was climbing a tree trying to grab the last persimmon off of it when a possum shot up and ate it first. So I ate the possum.
Now, would that be considered a vegetable? (I wouldn’t call it a fruit because I’m not from California.)

1. Boil corned beef. 2. Boil cabbage. 3. Boil potatoes. 4. Boil carrots. 5. Boil rutabagas. 6. Boil bread. 7. Boil apple pie and ice cream. 8. Throw all of the above on the side of the road for the possums. 9. Break out the Fry Daddy and fix some REAL food.

Yes, it seems cereal grains are here classed as vegetables, but if so, avoiding them seems difficult.

Boring trivia: We call "corn" what British and Mexicans call "maize," likely because early settlers originally called it "Indian corn." So "corn" in the KJV means "cereal grain" since maize is from the New World.

BTW the USDA Food Pyramid was influenced by agribiz lobbying:

The Food Pyramid (compiled by the National Association for Kinfolk)

60% MEATS: Must be some form of opossum.

20% VEGETABLE: This means anything that can be grown (old goat milk, stale bread, the occasional acorn)

20% CART RACING: All participants must have at least half a tooth in order to enjoy the prize (a fully roasted opossum).

Corn is the most popular vegetable? For some reason, some think if the corn plant is a grass, the edible portion is a grass seed. But I like it anyway.

"The opossum received its name in the early 1600s from Captain John Smith of the Jamestown colony in Virginia. The name is derived from aposoum, a Virginia Algonquian word meaning “white beast.” The first recorded reference to the opossum in literature came in 1610 in the following passage from A True Declaration of the Estate of the Colonie in Virginia: “There are … Apossouns, in shape like to pigges.” In the late 1700s, Sir Joseph Banks, a naturalist who accompanied Captain James Cook on his first great voyage, likened a furry creature he saw in Australia to “an animal of the Opossum tribe.” The term for the ringtail marsupial that he spotted was shortened to possum."

Sorry, Dr. Tim. I should have considered that you champion possum as much as Jim champions Democrats and Progressive causes. Any excuse to toot the possum horn is a good one.

I never suggested that possum is a vegetable, QC. My favorite vegetable is popcorn.

"Popeye was right about spinach: dark green, leafy vegetables are the healthiest food on the planet. As whole foods go, they offer the most nutrition per calorie." (Michael Greger)

"Onions, along with leeks, garlic, shallots and scallions, make up the allium family of vegetables, which can have beneficial effects on the cardiovascular and immune systems, as well as possible anti-diabetic and anti-cancer effects." (Joel Fuhrman)

"What did the father tomato say to the baby tomato whilst on a family walk?"

And from Bible....
Genesis 9:3 Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things."

Ezek 4:9 Take thou also unto thee wheat, and barley, and beans, and lentiles, and millet, and fitches, and put them in one vessel, and make thee bread thereof, according to the number of the days that thou shalt lie upon thy side, three hundred and ninety days shalt thou eat thereof."

Anyone take a survey about which nationalities are the most insecure about their diets? Americans (except Southerners and Hispanics) would probably take first place🎖: we have a huge industry preying upon it, creating remedies for the consequences, and funding researchers constantly shifting ground about what's healthiest to eat. This dates back to the 19th Century at least; e.g. that quack Kellogg, and Graham's crackers. So while it might be crazy, it's part of being American.

By contrast, I doubt the French or Italians care much.

Despite the political gaff noted by Jim, because it's always bashing Republicans with him, the article seems perposterous.

'Possum isn't a vegetable, either.

There are a nbr of Biblical points one could make here - care for the temple of our bodies, the four Hebrew teenagers eating roots and herbs in the Babylonian court, Elisha healing the poisoned stew...

Even more shocking is the fact that the vast majority of Americans have never tried possum. That’s okay. It just leaves more for me and JAG.

More people than that have had had veggies (Ketchup Is a Vegetable? Again?)

It doesn't quite go back to the Ronald Reagan Era.
