Dr Oz: Is Salad Overrated?
Are all the headlines about salad being overrated true? He sent author of “The Dorito Effect” Mark Schatzker, to visit the lettuce industry to find out what we really need to know about the popular greens. Critics argue it’s nothing more than a “vehicle for fattening dressing” and that lettuce is “nutritionally empty.” Mark explained that back in 70’s and 80’s, salad wasn’t too healthy because it was mainly a side dish of iceberg lettuce. But in the 90’s leafy greens became more popular and salad was transformed.
