HEALTH BENEFITS OF CARROTS
The carrot is a crunchy, mildly sweet vegetable that belongs to the same family as cumin, dill, fennel, and parsnips.  Carrots were originally lavender to deep purple and were cultivated in the Middle East and central Asia thousands of years ago!  Around the seventeenth century, the orange carrot we now know today was cultivated in Europe by agriculturists who wanted a carrot that had a better texture than the purple variety. You can’t say enough about the health benefits of carrots!  Carrots contain an abundant amount of vitamins and minerals and are a tasty way to add extra nutrition to the diet. A study on cancer prevention showed that the beta-carotene in carrots help reduce cancer. While it lowered the rate of lung cancer and breast cancer, it’s most impressive results came from the reduction of the risk of colon cancer by an impressive 24 percent.  Regular consumption of carrots could also improve your heart and reduce the risk of a coronary event.  It’s not just a wives tale that carrots are good for the vision. Not only is a combination of carrots and olive oil simmered slowly helpful for dry eyes and night blindness, adding carrots to the diet also reduces the risk of age related muscular degeneration by as much as 40 percent.
