Do carrots truly help improve one's vision?

Well... yes and no.

The association between carrots and vision - particularly night vision - grew into fruition during World War II. The British Royal Air Force published a story that said skilled fighter pilot John "Cats' Eyes" Cunningham could thank a steady diet of carrots for his night vision flying prowess.

Why was this story released? Well... in reality, the Royal Air Force was actually using radar to locate Luftwaffe bombers during the night... but concealing the reality with a tribute to carrots.

As a result? Many British citizens began to grow and eat more carrots.

That's one way to get your kids to eat more vegetables.

Be that as it may... I have noticed that when I consume both carrots and beets, my eyes "clear." Not necessarily better vision, but they seem to shine from the vitamins and minerals found in these two vegetables particularly. I know, it "sounds" weird... but when people tell me that my eyes are "shining," I know it is due in part to my diet.

Easy juice:
1 medium beet, 2 medium carrots, 1 cup purple cabbage, 1 inch knob ginger, 1/2 cucumber

If you have no yet started juicing/blending - I would very much encourage you to do so. It's worth the change in diet and overall lifestyle.

Love y'all dearly!
