They said I was crazy.
Just because I have been extolling the many benefits of Marmite on this blog.
But they said Copernicus was crazy when he said the earth isn't the center of the universe.
And they said Einstein was crazy when he said that everything is relative.
And they said Uncle Ernest was crazy when he ran naked down the main road with flowers in his hair.
No, wait. Uncle Ernest really was crazy.
But I'm not.
At last, science has proved conclusively that Marmite is a superfood.
According to this article in the Daily Telegraph (which is renowned for its truthiness) a study in the Journal of Clinical Investigation discovered that high doses of vitamin B3 -- one of Marmite's main ingredients -- produce neutrophilis, a white blood cell that fights bacteria and increases the immune system's ability to fight infection up to 1,000 times.
Who doesn't want some of that?
I rest my case.
I think I'll have some Marmite now.
