We know that carrots help with vision and preventing cancer, right? Here are some other facts as well: The word 'carrot' comes from the greek karaton and because they have beta-caratone in them. Carrots have protein sacs that are highly encased and have to be broken by cooking or heat. Proper chewing is good too. We shouldn't eat too many carrots or they could cause us digestive problems. There are 100 or more species of carrots. The longest carrots reports at 19 feet and the biggest was 19 pounds. Eating carrots helps to cleanse the body, prevents strokes and heart disease, protects the teeth and gums, slows down aging because the beta-carotene acts like an antioxidant and cuts down on cell damage in the body. Carotene also promotes healthier skin, and it is a good source of Vitamin A.

@celticeagle Yes, I like the sweetening taste. Actually I always use it to cook with rice, porridge or soup, so I guess it'd be fine for digestion as it's cooked until very soft. I sometimes fry it together with other vegetables. It's also nice to add more colors to our dishes.

I fall in love with carrots after I read your post. I know carrots is a good source of Vitamin A. I was not a fan of vegetables like carrots when I was a kid. I think that is the reason why I have poor eyesight. Now, that I already know its benefits, I would like to eat carrots everyday.
