"A superfood is a bit like Superman… except it doesn't wear a cape, can't fly, and won't save your life.

The lack of a cape and an inability to fly should come as no surprise to superfood fans, but ardent eaters of goji berries, blueberries, acai, and kale might be surprised to learn that these foods, and other "superfoods" like them, do not magically grant health and longevity.

This blunt truth actually runs counter to the Oxford Dictionary's definition of a superfood: "a nutrient-rich food considered to be especially beneficial for health and well-being." The Oxford Dictionary needs to hire some fact-checkers…"

Whoever wrote that article needs to learn the difference between a dictionary and an encyclopaedia!

The Oxford Dictionary is defining the WORD. The definition is correct. Note the phrase "considered to be".

Why are there so many illiterate numptys getting (presumably) paid to write stuff these days?

Any food you actually eat trumps stuff you will never eat.

Fellow I knew said he made it through a semester of college with a hotplate and a hundred pound bag of potatoes.

Didn't say whether he fried or boiled although I imagine it was some of both.
