I have been told that carrot juice is good for you. Way back when I got my first job, there was a fellow there that we all thought was a health nut. He very seldom wore a jacket and always took a swim every day of the year, and at that time, I was living and working in western Pennsylvania and the winters were really cold!! So, with all the bodies of water frozen over, how did he go swimming everyday? Well, he first tried to swim in creeks and ponds and such, but got really tired of breaking the ice every day. So, he had his own private swimming pool put in. In one corner, he mounted a heat lamp which prevented the ice from forming in that corner and that was enough to give him access to the water, in which he would swim every morning before coming to work.
This man also drank carrot juice. Not just a glass now and then through the week, but he practically lived on it. In fact, he started to turn orange and smelled like carrots. I don't know, but I would imagine that he drank other vegetable juices, but maybe not. I have no idea how long he lived, since I lost contact with him when I took a salaried position.
I found this next paragraph on line at:
"A lot of people are obsessed with eating healthy and exercising, in the hopes that they can put off the inevitable a bit longer. But in some cases such dedication can be just as deadly as sitting on the couch all day eating potato chips. In 1974, Englishman Basil Brown died of an overdose of carrot juice. Brown, whose healthy eating regime involved drinking one gallon of the stuff a day, had had an orange tint to his skin for some time. But drinking one gallon of almost anything other than water a day isn’t great for your liver, and after years of the practice it finally shut down."
If there is a moral to this story I guess it would be not to do anything in excess. In fact, that is a good motto to live by. Now, you all have a great day, you hear?
