The Mail cites an American Chemical Society study that reveals the surprising find: "Spinach stored [in fluorescent] light for three days had much higher levels of vitamins C, K, and E, plus folate, a B vitamin. After nine days, levels of folate increased between 84 and 100 percent and the level of Vitamin K also rose by up to 100 percent." [via Cold Mud]
