AFP: Eating carrots 'makes you more attractive': study
Yeah, yeah....carrots and carrot-derived juices and supplements have come into vogue this year as the new miracle anti-aging, super healthy food.
Last year it was the Acai Berry, and before that I think it was Blueberries.
But this is the deal...they all share a common thread, in that they are all powerful anti-oxidants, which help our bodies kill-off those pesky free radicals, which are simply unstable molecules which steal oxygen molecules from our bodies' cells.
And yeah, a simple way to determine which fruits are strong in posessing anti-oxidants is to simply look at their color: the brighter and prettier they are the more they have. It ain't rocket surgery.
But don't forget exercise and plenty of water!

When our daughter was a baby her feet and hands were real orange and we took her to the doctor.

He said that we were feeding her so much carrots that it was turning her orange.

Hew color came back when we cut back on the carrots.
