    No, unfortunately not.

    In fact this was just a roumor that was being spread by the british armee to prevent the germans from finding out about some of their superiour technology.

    I was always taught that they did. But I there's solid proof that they don't. I heard that if you eat them a lot you can start to turn orange

    No that is a myth. It is an old wive's tail so that women could get their children to eat more, especially because they were plentiful.

    Dave is right, it is a myth. I have been drinking carrot juice 3 times a week for years and my vision is not 20/20. I recently had to get glasses sad

    Well, carrots contain antioxidants and vitamin A a much needed nutrient for eye health. Eating it stand alone may not dramatically improve your vision, however eating it with dark green leafy vegetables and tomatoes will.
