Clotting factors are regulated by an <a href="http:\/\/en.wikipedia.org\/wiki\/Gamma-glutamyl_carboxylase" target="_blank">enzyme </a>that needs vitamin K to work. If you're healthy, it's almost impossible to eat enough veggies to mess things up, since the extra vitamin K is harmless. If you're on blood thinners like warfarin, which work by reducing vitamin K levels, it's a different story: a big spinach salad can neutralize a week's worth of pills.

<i>"While at Kent State University, where she majored in Journalism, she photographed the Kent State shootings and her photographs appear in numerous publications, documentaries and history books."</i>

I suppose seeing the army shooting at your fellow citizens could make someone suspicious of government power, but I'll be she supports the death penalty anyway.
