Eastern Europeans would customarily eat beets in their borscht and women used them to prevent pregnancy-induced anemia and birth defects due to the unique combination of iron, vitamin C, and folate.

The fake interview was actually an award-winning American Greetings ad, and the job, of course, was motherhood!
