The Noble Carrot

Aurora Dentist Family Dentistry York Region Orchard Heights Dental Centre

According to a study published in Evolution and Human Behavior, eating carrots regularly can give your skin a healthy, attractive, golden glow that other people notice. That’s because of pigments called carotenoids.

A half-cup of cooked carrots provides four times the recommended dietary allowance of vitamin A in the form of beta-carotene, which is necessary for healthy skin, eyesight, and growth. Beta-carotene also has antioxidant qualities that build resistance to infection, heart attack, and stroke.

Harvard University research suggests those who eat more than five carrots a week are much less likely to suffer a stroke than
those who eat one a month.

The National Cancer Institute is studying how beta-carotene may ward off cancers, including oral cancers

So quick like a bunny....grab a carrot or two!
