Benefits of Carrots

Carrots on Brown Woven Basket

From my previous post, you can see that I believe carrots are an overlooked vegetable.  There are great benefits to carrots, which come from the significant source of beta-carotene and fiber as well as vitamins and minerals.  Carrots have long been known to improve vision, but did you know there were several other health benefits of carrots?  Carrots have been linked to improving skin and aid in detoxifying the body.  Beta-carotene has also been shown to reduce the risk of lung cancer by up to 40%, and reduce the risk of stroke by up to 68%!  Below is a link regarding the benefits of carrots.  This is a very informative site, and also states the scientific links that I have described above.  After reading the article, I am sure you agree that we all need to include carrots in our diet everyday!
