Can You Really See Better In The Dark By Eating Carrots?

FACT-OF-THE-DAY-logo

Carrots contain Vitamin A that is required for your body to synthesise rhodopsin, which is the pigment in your eyes that operates at low-light conditions. Eating carrots can help you so that you see better at night but it will never help you see in complete darkness, however if you're deficient it will help you. Did you know that this was actually an old wive's tale that came about during World War 2? The Brits tricked the Germans into thinking that we weren't using radar but instead eating lots of carrots which helped us see in the dark, we fooled everybody into thinking this was true :)
