Points of Reference

Exactly how healthy is that soda, anyway? It's not like it has no nutritional value, after all. That's where the Overall Nutritional Quality Index comes in. Set for introduction in the US next year, the ONQI rates foods from 1 to 100 based on their overall effect on health. Let's put it this way: Broccoli is a 100, and soda is a 1. The index is basically the Total Perspective Vortex for food.

For those who are math-impaired, this does not mean you should drink 100 sodas to derive the benefit of eating broccoli.
