A Carrot A Day...

A carrot could hold the key to attractiveness, according to a recent UK study.   (While complete details of the study are not yet available, they will be published in the popular science journals, Evolution and Human Behaviour, sometime this March.)

I love that this particular article calls out the fact that people tend not to eat fruits and vegetables just because they're healthy, but are suddenly more inclined to eat them if they know it'll boost their aesthetic appeal.  I don't know whether to laugh or be appalled over the notion that a culture could value preventing a wrinkle more so than preventing a heart attack.
