(A cautionary note - The Carrot Museum cautions you to not believe all studies. Please trust your own judgment. As a researcher I am happy to share and cite studies that appear promising, that carrots provide health giving properties. However the body and individual metabolisms and gene make up are all different so it is difficult to be positive that any of it will work for any particular individual. In fact it is often difficult to ensure, or decipher, whether any of the research is not financially or otherwise biased. You can find just as many convincing studies supporting mainstream treatments, together with other evidence that there is no effect. Also many studies are based on animal tests, rather than humans.)
