Seaweed burger, anyone?

This short article says a group of British researchers claim that seaweed can make fast-food hamburgers more healthy (or less unhealthy, depending on your point of view). No, they don't mean laying on big pieces of seaweed like lettuce. The scientists, writing in the journal Critical Reviews In Food Science And Nutrition, say that adding seaweed to the meat patties would raise the fiber content without adding any flavor or taste.

The BBC's teen-oriented Newsround also has a slightly longer article on the same story.
