Carrots

How's this for a dangling carrot: The rabbit food may not only help prevent sun damage, but might even reverse it. In a recent Korean study, 30 healthy women received a daily dose of 30 milligrams of beta carotene (about six carrots' worth) for three months. As a result, the antioxidants both protected and repaired cells from photoaging. Sneak carrots into your diet by making healthy, low-cal fries. Cut peeled carrots into three-inch sticks. Place them on a baking sheet with two tablespoons of olive oil and some sea salt. Toss to coat evenly, then roast in a 400 degrees for 30 minutes (turning them at the 15-minute mark).

    Another nutient in carrots is vitamin A. In high doses vitamin A is toxic. Does the research cover this danger? History shows the lethal effects of excess vitamin A. Some Antarctic explorers died from eating the livers of the dogs they killed for nourishment.
