Yesterday as my friend Laura and I were indulging in some vegetable juice, she told me that she looked up on Snopes to see if the whole thing about carrots making your eyes stronger was true or not after she’d gotten into a discussion with someone about it. She said it was a plan to disguise the invention of radar and how it accurate it was from the Germans by saying that the pilots could see so well because of eating so many carrots and that there were signs up everywhere, a whole campaign really to fool the public. I certainly grew up hearing that carrots were great for your eyes. This got me thinking about the government’s 5-a-day vegetable thing. I don’t mean to be a conspiracy theorist here, but just what are they up to now?
