According to a British magazine ....eating large amounts of carrots will allow one to see in the dark developed from stories of British gunners in World War II who were able to shoot down German planes in the darkness of night.

Massive over consumption of carrots can cause hypercarotenemia, a condition in which the skin turns orange although hypercarotenemia is not itself dangerous unlike overdose of vitamin A, which can cause liver damage.Since Carrots are also rich in dietary fibre, antioxidants, and minerals.

Nice blog,

You mentioned the advantages of carrot, yeah it seems peoples are aware of carrot's benefits hence it is a usual part of our food either as salad, main course & most famous Gajar ka halwa. But peoples are attracting more towards its juices, you can observe that in many cities carrot juices are available in more stalls & peoples are preferring that over other juices.
