EATING CARROTS IMPROVES
YOUR VISION

THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST


Everyone has heard the old wives tale that eating carrots improves your vision. The tale is said to be especially true for improving night vision. Although this sounds like just another way for adults to get their children to eat their vegetables, there actually is some truth to this. Although, whether or not eating carrots will stop the need for ever wearing glasses is doubtful.

The tale is based on the fact that carrots contain massive amounts of Beta-carotene. The Beta-carotene travels to the small intestine and there, it is transformed into Vitamin A. Vitamin A can be turned into the protein Rhodospin and this is a group of cells that is found in the retina that is very sensitive to light.

The tale started during World War II. The British used the tale to say that their soldiers who were trained in finding enemy planes were eating carrots to help them see the planes better. They made up the lie so that their invention of radar could remain secret, therefore, giving them an upper hand in the war.
