    We always hear that we should eat our vegetables, that vegetables are good for us, that vegetables will make us healthy. But as we know, it is not the vegetable that makes us healthy, but the vitamins held within. Eating broccoli is not necessary; it is just the time-honored way to stay healthy. So...
