D Less than 20%

The typical American eat less than 20% of the amount of vegetables recommended in updated dietary guidelines released by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for 2015-2020. The good news is that the goal of 100% is within reach for most of us. The guidelines, which are accompanied by a new food guide icon, say we should focus on more dark green, red, and orange vegetables, beans, and peas.

You are a bunch of smart folks!
Correct answer is:

(c)

Because of a labeling loophole, a "trans fat free" food may still contain small amounts of partially hydrogenated oil, the source of artery-damaging trans fats. And these small amounts can add up, especially since standard serving sizes are often small.

(a) the food contains no trans fat
(b) it contains no partially hydrogenated oil
(c) it has less than 0.5 grams of trans fat per serving
(d) it contains no saturated fat
(e) it is healthy for you

Many GREAT answers, here's the one that came from the trivia site;

? What do the 3 birthstones of June signify? (Moonstone, pearl, and alexandrite)

Moonstone stands for new beginnings, pearl stands for purity, and alexandrite for health and longevity.

Alexandrite is associated with concentration and learning and believed to strengthen intuition, aid creativity and inspire imagination, bringing good omens to anyone who wears it.
Pearls symbolize wisdom. Some stories say white pearls are tears shed by the gods. One legend says the tears Eve cried when she was banished from Eden turned to pearls.
Moonstone is associated with moonlight in virtually in all parts of the world. It is associated with female energy and therefore with pregnancy and childbirth. Moonstone is sacred in India, where the popular belief is that it brings long and healthy live.

Having been a June baby for nearly 67 years, I must admit that I've NEVER heard of a moonstone as a birth stone for my month. I wear both pearls and an alexandrite ring. I don't know the significance of either.
