CDLXVI: Nutrition Facts

© Lani Kai
Trypto: there was a stupid article on healthy foods
Trypto: and one of them was kiwis
Trypto: and it contained a ridiculous sentence
Trypto: paraphrased, two kiwis have twice the vitamin C of an orange
Lani Kai: so are you saying that they should have just said that a kiwi has the same amount of vitamin C as an orange?
Trypto: yes
Trypto: they also said that kiwis have the most nutritional value per ounce
Trypto: but that begs the question which fruit has the most nutritional value per dollar
Lani Kai: "most" out of all things edible?
Trypto: out of "commonly eaten fruits"
Lani Kai: by... Westerners?
Trypto: presumably
Trypto: although one of the foods they highlighted was edamame
Trypto: and although the title of the article was "10 Nutrutious Foods You Aren't Eating"
Lani Kai: so they aren't commonly eaten
Lani Kai: this is deeply confusing
