What’s the first thing that pops into your head when you think about carrots? Sit back for a minute and think about it. For me personally, every time I think or hear or see a carrot Bugs Bunny comes to mind holding a carrot in one hand bites a little and then says “what’s up doc”? It’s funny how cartoons can have a positive influence on your psyche and ultimately on your diet.
They say that carrots are good for your eyes because when you cut it the incision looks like an eye, I don’t know if it’s good for your eyes I never searched for that, but I do know that carrot and carrot juice is a healthy way to boost your immune system. I see carrot juice and especially juice from organically grown carrots to be used frequently in diets that cure cancer, yes you heard me, cancer can be cured with a whole plant based diet and not with radioactive drugs, chemo or whatever else the big pharmaceuticals want you to believe cures cancer.
Find and read the books by Dr. Max Gerson, see how he cures 50 cases of cancer just by using a predominantly plant based diet.
Carrots are perhaps best known for their beta-carotene content (The nutrient beta-carotene was actually named after the carrot!). While they can be an outstanding source of this phytonutrient, carrots actually contain a fascinating combination of phytonutrients, including other carotenoids (especially alpha-carotene and lutein); hydroxycinnamic acids (including caffeic, coumaric, ferulic); anthocyanins (in the case of purple and red carrots); and polyacetylenes (especially falcarinol and falcarindiol).
Carrots are an excellent source of vitamin A (in the form of carotenoids). In addition, they are a very good source of biotin, vitamin K, dietary fiber, molybdenum, potassium, vitamin B6, and vitamin C. They are a good source of manganese, niacin, vitamin B1, panthothenic acid, phosphorus, folate, copper, vitamin E, and vitamin B2.
