    I think the carrot thing about being good for the eyes is an old wives tale. I have eaten carrots all my life and still had poor eye sight.

    Old airman's tale. During WWII, the allies developed radar and started sinking German ships really well. The Brits didn't want Germany to know about radar, so they circulated rumors that this was due to their pilots' superior eyesight because all Royal Air Force pilots ate a lot of carrots.

    The myth that spinach grows muscles stems from a typographical error. A German monk was recording nutritional value for different vegetables and found that spinach has about the same iron content as other leafy greens. But he moved the decimal on place right, indicating that the iron content of spinach is ten times what it actually is, or approximately the same as red meat.

    There is some truth to the carrots and eye thing... Carrots are rich in vitamin A, which is used to make the molecule rhodopsin, essential to sight. So if you have a vitamin A deficiency, you could help your sight by eating carrots. Otherwise, it's a wive's tale.
