    Any clues as to what this is before anyone has to click on it beforehand?

    When I lived in the UK many years ago, I used to get Sea Kale that grew wild along the beachfront at Newhaven when I used to go fishing there. I saw wild rabbits / hares eating it so must have been good to go , so took some home to eat with the fish I caught.

    Wiki article about it here.

    The two links are the effects of kale.
    The first lowering blood pressure, the second lowering blood sugar.

    Not really a fan of kale. I once ate quite a lot of it under the illusion that it was good for me, but I later came round to the idea that anything which tastes bitter to the human palate unless you cook it, probably isn’t a food that we are biologically adapted to consume.

    Do the links give any indication of the oxalate or lectin values in Kale?

    Can't access the first study but the second was on supplementing vitamin C tablets and nothing specifically about Kale so that one's out of the window..

    The study linked to in the second article doesn't mention kale at all.. and consists of feeding people Vit C tablets..
    Pure bull****

    This seems to be the study the article was based on

    I stopped reading the first link when I got t this bit

    "more people than ever at risk of Type 2 diabetes, thanks to sedentary lifestyles and readily available sugary foods."

    So it it my own fault I have T2, apparently I'm lazy and greedy
