Growing up, we’re fed all kinds of lies… Santa, the Tooth Fairy, the boogey man that’s not under the bed [we know he’s there]. But there are few lies our parents told us that are more egregious, than how carrots will help improve our eyesight. A little known fact is that this myth was the result of some innocent war propaganda.
Photographer Henry Hargreaves, always up for a good time with food, created the Carrot Eye Chart. Stand back, start with the big carrot ‘E’ and check your eyesight. I got as far as the line of greek characters and a question mark. Shoulda ate my carrots.
