Maybe it was Bugs Bunny or maybe it was the episode of Gilligan’s Island where Mrs. Howell eats radioactive carrots and gains supersight, but for most of my life it’s been a truism that eating carrots makes for good eyesight. Well…maybe.
*Correction: Mrs. Howell eats radioactive sugar beets and has incredible speed/energy. Mary Ann eats the carrots and gets amazing distance vision.*
