The Almighty God had from the beginning of creation provided man with grass and the herb yielding seed and fruit tree yielding fruit after its kind and God saw it was good (Genesis 1:11-12). Fruit of a tree yielding seed was for meat. Grass would mean all types of vegetables and herbs cover a lot of things for healing.

Genesis 1:29

  • And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.



Carrots originated in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iran about 5000 years ago. In those days, there were no Afghanistan or Pakistan, and the Iranian Plateau covered Afghanistan and Pakistan, so Iran must be considered as the land of origin for carrots.

Almost five thousand years ago, carrots were firstly cultivated in the Iranian Plateau and then in Persian Empire. Western and Arabic literatures along with the studies by US Department of Agriculture (USDA) reveal that carrots were originated in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iran. It should be noted, however, that there were no Afghanistan or Pakistan in those olden days.

It slowly spread into the Mediterranean area. The first carrots were mainly purple, with some white or black - not orange.


Like virtually all vegetables, there are hundreds, if not thousands, of phytonutrients that have not yet been identified or tested for cancer-fighting abilities in carrots. We may not yet know the best cancer-fighting nutrient in carrots. Based on many testimonials and some books, carrots may be the best cancer-fighting vegetable of all.

In a review of 206 human studies, carrots consistently emerged as one of the top cancer-fighting foods. The power of carrots lies in the group of pigments called carotenoids.

This is a truly versatile vegetable and an excellent source of vitamins B and C as well as calcium pectate, an extraordinary pectin fibre that has been found to have cholesterol-lowering properties.

The carrot is an herbaceous plant containing about 87% water, rich in mineral salts and vitamins (B,C,D,E).
Raw carrots are an excellent source of vitamin A and potassium; they contain vitamin C, vitamin B6, thiamine, folic acid, and magnesium.
Cooked carrots are an excellent source of vitamin A, a good source of potassium, and contain vitamin B6, copper, folic acid, and magnesium. The high level of beta-carotene is very important and gives carrots their distinctive orange colour.

Carrots also contain, in smaller amounts, essential oils, carbohydrates and nitrogenous composites. They are well-known for their sweetening, antianaemic, healing, diuretic, remineralizing and sedative properties.
In order to assimilate the greatest quantity of the nutrients present in carrots, it is important to chew them well - they are the exception to the rule - they are more nutritious cooked than raw.

Carrots are one of the best sources of carotene which is a strong antioxidant, but carrots also contain other phenolic compounds that are antioxidants. Many people do not realize that numerous phenolic compounds are located in the skin of fruit and vegetables, many of which are removed by peeling prior to processing.

Carrot greens can be eaten and are high in vitamin K, which is lacking in the carrot itself. read more.

In 2000 BC temple drawings from Egypt show a plant believed to be a purple carrot. It is also identified in the garden of the Egyptian King Merodach-Baladan in the eighth century BC.

In Roman times carrots were purple or white, but by the 10th century purple carrots were grown in Afghanistan, Pakistan and northern Iran. Purple, white and yellow carrots were imported to southern Europe in the 14th century. Black, red and white carrots were also grown. Purple carrots were used as a clothing dye for Afghan royalty.

Orange carrots by human selection and development had its beginning in the Netherlands. It is thought that humans made selections from a genepool involving yellow rooted eastern carrots, cultivated white-rooted derivatives of wild carrot in Europe and the Mediterranean. It is thought that Dutch breeders used a mutant seed from North Africa to develop the orange variety.

      Glad you enjoyed the hub. I had no idea that carrots came in so many colours until I researched the hub.

      Most vegetables are eaten raw than cooked.

      I enjoyed this super interesting hub from the origins to your conclusion about God's foreknowledge and preparation for that.

      I had no idea that carrots came in so many colors. I grow carrots every summer and will not peel them anymore and I am going to look for ways to use the greens.

      I was also surprised to know that they are better cooked than raw. It is usually the opposite with most vegetables.

      I also found the benefits you listed quite useful

      I don't really like carrots but I have been grinding them in a processor and sneaking them into other food and that is working for me.

      Great informative hub.

      I also had no idea there was so much info about carrots until I started researching and writing. Carrots are supposed to be more nutritous when cooked.
