Wives Tales that are the Real Deal #5: Carrots

August 30, 2014 1 min read

I know that I've heard this one many times in my youth: Eating carrots can help you to see in the dark. This wives' tale actually originated in Great Britain during World War II, and it was actually supposed to convince the Germans that the British could see their planes flying overhead at night. However, at the Erasmus Medical Centre in Rotterdam, researchers found that carrots are the BOMB when it comes to preventing macular (eye cell) degeneration. Turns out the high levels of beta carotene in the carrots can reduce the degeneration of your eye cells by as much as 35%.   [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="669"] Source: ideasforfatreducing.blogspot.com[/caption] This may not mean that you'll be able to see in the dark, but it can prevent your eye function declining as you age. Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is one of the most common causes of vision problems! Bonus:A study done in Nepal found that eating carrots helped nightblind women to improve their vision to the same level as women who could see normally after dark.
