Headline of the Morning

“Study: 1 in 4 people have never eaten a vegetable”

 

A survey by VeggieTracker.com, 2,000 Americans were asked which vegetables they liked and disliked the most.  The most popular vegetable in America is — CORN.

#2 Potatoes … #3 Carrots + tomatoes. Rounding out the top 5 onions and green beans

NOTE:  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.

Seriously 1 in 4 respondents say they’ve actually never eaten a vegetable at all!

And of those who do eat vegetables, the average person only includes veggies in a third of their meals. BTW: The most dislike vegetable = turnips…

A military assault by Turkey against America’s Kurdish allies in Northern Syria is now in its second day. Many of those towns have Christians in them.

***President Trump’s recent surprise decision to remove US troops from the region has shocked much of the world this week leading to a sharp backlash from members of Congress on both sides of the aisle.
One of the president’s most vocal supporters, Sen. Lindsey Graham, on Wednesday said the withdrawal could mark the “biggest mistake” of Trump’s presidency. It’s also causing members of the evangelical community to speak out against US forces leaving Syria…

ACTION: Ask the President and our elected leaders to continue supporting the Kurds in Syria!  Contact information is on the News Blog at wbfj.fm
