Fun Carrot Fact: Don't give your bunny too many carrots. They are high in sugar and bunnies have a hard time breaking down sugar. The reason this idea became popular was because of Bugs Bunny. 😊

It's called carotenemia and you have to eat like 10 carrots a day for weeks for it to happen. It's more likely to happen in a baby that eats a lot of carrot baby food.

It actually does! Sort of..It turns your skin a yellowish color. If you just eat a bunch a carrots for a couple weeks (like 10 carrots a day roughly/a bowl of them) it'll cause it, remember hearing about a guy who drank carrot smoothies a LOT and it ended up changing his skin color then killing him later as he didn't stop.

Food theory idea: is it possible to live solely on free samples? Let’s say each grocery store contains 2 points of free samples (in a real life experiment I noted 4 but it was only one store so insufficient data). These free samples are usually things like ice cream, pretzels, or different forms of drinks from what I’ve seen. The things by themselves aren’t enough to fulfill your dietary needs. But this is all based off of sole personal observation, so I’d be interested to see the data

If you eat too many carrots you turn a yellow-ish/orange color! If they just ration out the carrots it'd be fine honestly. Good thing they stopped for a bit because once you turn orange you're actually pretty close to dying of eating just way too much carrots.
93blacktiger Před 4 měsíci
Now THIS is something I can relate to Matt! I always liked carrots, but as a kid, when my eyes were going bad, I resorted to eating carrots constantly. It was so bad that my parents stepped in when the tips of my fingers turned orange. Oops 😅

When I first got my glasses, my parents (mostly my dad) made me eat one carrrot every day, because him and my mom believed that my vision would improve from that. Eventually they forgot (or stopped caring) so now that policy is gone, but it was definitly something.
Ganeswara Před 4 měsíci
Great video as always. I'm wondering if you could cover the history behind "3 meals a day" culture? Or something like is breakfast really that important. Another related theory idea, considering human can live without food for weeks, is it possible to live by eating once a day or even once every couple days. Would really appreciate if you cover these topics.

Great video as usual! I’ve heard this all the time and always wondered if it was actually true. If I may, I have a video idea I wanted to suggest and understand you probably get messages suggesting ideas all the time but thought I’d try anyways: I have a life threatening food allergy, I’ve had to read the ingredients labels on foods my whole life. One thing that pops up that people don’t often think about are the warning labels that say “May contain traces of…” or “manufactured in a facility that also processes…” etc. my dad and I have had a long going disagreement on the legitimacy of those labels. He believes that the food is perfectly safe and companies slap those warnings on for no reason so avoid getting sued. I say there would be no reason for a company to bother putting a warning label on the packaging unless it legitimately may contain traces or was indeed made in a facility that also processes the allergen. If you ever need a video idea, I’d sure appreciate you finally settling this argument for us 😂 I personally wouldn’t even know where to begin to find this answer. Anyways, i love all your food theory videos! They’re always so fun and interesting!

I always thought it had more to do with what was inside the carrot itself, and after getting glasses in 3rd grade I decided that carrots might help with sight but not very well. Now with two different glasses prescriptions(Think of it as one eye is nearsighted and one eye is farsighted), I realize that carrots really weren't doing much at all besides keeping me healthy.
Sofia Loveland
Sofia Loveland Před 4 měsíci
When I was a kid, I was told two things: 1) Carrots are good for your eyesight. 2) Dogs are colorblind. Naturally, I felt bad that my dog couldn’t see color, so I decided to fix that. I would mix chopped carrot into his kibble and then “test” him on his colors in an attempt to cure his colorblindness. It obviously didn’t work, but I was really dedicated to it for about a month.

well in that case, another reason the consumption of carrots and other vegetable sources is recommended over fish because vitamin a gets stored and can turn harmful if you have to much of it, even ironicly worsen your sight as a result. With beta carotin, your body can always check how much if the active substance is going around and simply not produce more if your need is covered, it is a safety messure against and overdose you simply do not have if you take in vitamin a itself. Vitamin a overdosage can end deadly . . .

I just recently learned that this is a myth. Let me explain how: So basically I used to eat carrots like a rodent, just constantly snacking on them. And way back in the day my eyesight was pretty bad. But it seemed that as I ate more and more carrots my eyes improved over time. I even stopped needing glasses which was nice since I thought they made me look nerdy (which I'm proud of now). But when I told someone about how after eating so many carrots my eyes improved they said about how it's a myth that the beta-carotene improves your actual eyesight. Of course still thinking the carrots improved my eyes I was hellbent on proving them wrong, come to find out they were right. The only thing beta-carotene improves is your eyes' ability to adjust to light. So, they made me see a bit better in the dark. This is actually true as well since I used to not see anything in the dark but now I can make out shapes and even an environment. So anyway it was some strange (probably age-related) coincidence that my eyesight improved while I was munching on a ton of carrots.

Fun fact: when the RAF started using Radar in WW2, they started doing night raids in Germany. This was at the time when radar was still very new. To answer how the pilots saw so well in the dark they answered that they "ate lots of carrots".

Crazy how media can influence eating habits. As a kid, I just saw Popeye eating his spinach and become strong, and I automatically thought that was true, so that's the reason I ate them, just so I could flex my "newly grown muscles" to my parents 😂 They do help to develop muscle function tho, so I guess I wasn't that far off 😉

it's kinda cool to learn which country was growing its own "blitzkrieg vegetables": the uk had carrots, turnips and radishes (which can be grown easily even on your windowsill inside), germany had its sauerkraut, beetroot and brussels sprouts and the usa had its sweet corn and potatoes. I don't know about holland, though... I suppose they just ate their tulips...^^

Now that food theory has tackled one big veggie myth, I’d be curious about another one that has always baffled me for years. Theory idea: does eating vegetables make you “big and strong?” Or, Theory idea: are there any foods that put “hair on your chest?” I’ve heard those kinds of sayings my whole life, but (especially with the veggie one) I’ve never actually believed it. I know veggies are healthy and they provide important nutrients (and generally since they usually have a high water content, they tend to fill you faster than other foods because of their caloric density) but, I’ve never heard of anything that veggies have that actually would make anyone bigger or stronger. At least, nothing that other foods wouldn’t have. So, I guess my hypothesis is: no, veggies don’t make you big and strong any more than other foods would. But, that’s not a theory. 😉

If you're talking about spinach, yes and not really. Spinach has some amount of ecdysterone, which is basically a natural "steroid". It's a controversial topic amongst bodybuilders as effects drastically vary and many sources are unreliable. But on paper, spinach could potentially help increase your testosterone and thus aid in muscle hypertrophy. Though I doubt that veggies alone will help you become big and strong, it's still a good way to supplement your diet if you're thinking about gaining because they have many other benefits

Kiçine koyondu emes, çoŋ kiyikti jegen jakşı dep oylodu.#垃圾 Son unos de los mejores conciertos , no puede ir pero de tan solo verlos desde pantalla, se que estuvo sorprendente 💗❤️💌💘

As in so bad that a common flashlight is useless to him? Dang that's pretty harsh, does he also have the color blindness that also tends to follow total night blindness?

I knew that they had the radar and that was one of the reasons they were pushing carrots but it’s interesting to learn of the other reasons!

What was head scratching for me is that I love carrots and I ate them all the time and yet my vision still deteriorated. My parents also thought me sitting too close to the TV was a reason for my poor vision. But I had to sit close because I couldn't see. Gotta love that 20/1000 vision at 12.

My maternal grandmother had great night vision and best of all she could adjust from bright light to near total darkness almost instantly. She claimed it was because she ate a lot of raw green beans.

As a Brit I know it came from British RADAR being kept hidden but I'm sure there is a real health benefit to your eyes yeah sure which I think will be pointed out in this video that a microscopic level of benefit is taken as with any vegetable but actually carrots are slightly more or something idk.

I have a question about the beta-carotene of carrots from the video. For a long time purple carrots and other colors were more common. Also, if greens aren't "needed" what is required in a diet?

During anatomy class, one of the first things we learned was that Vitamin A did not help you see better but was essential to seeing. I actually didn't know the cornea one, but vitamin A is a necessary component in unbleaching your rods and cones. Essentially, when light hits your rods and cones in your eyes, they react and "bleach," causing a chemical reaction that sends an electrical impulse. But once bleached, it takes a very long time to unbleach by itself, which is where Vitamin A comes in.
Daltigoth Před 4 měsíci
@TreguardD There is a clear difference in the distinction. It would be more accurate to say that vitamin A "helps you continue seeing". Vitamin A only "helps you see" to the extent that coolant in a car "helps it go" - the coolant doesn't make the car move, but it does keep the car from overheating when it is moving, and thus helps to prevent damage that could cause the car to stop moving. Minor damage caused by overheating can be patched up and you can resume driving the car after adding more coolant, but major damage requires parts to be replaced. Something that actually "helps you see" would be something that augments your vision in some way, rather than just helping to maintain it - prescription glasses, night-vision goggles, telescopes, binoculars, etc.
TreguardD Před 4 měsíci
That sounds like a distinction without a difference.

@R - G - C not really. It maintains your vision, it doesn't improve it. It doesn't "help" you see, it helps you from not seeing.

I think MatPat would make a great host/narrator for a history channel
is it possible for this to happen backwards? my eyesight used to be really great but suddenly my school lunch would only serve me carrots and baby carrots so i ate them everyday for a pretty long time and they replaced snacks for me. then my eyesight was just plain out bad after that...

Thinking of food substitutes, it would be cool to see a food theory on literal food substitutes and in what cases the substitute is better than the original food? Like Theseus’ food? Did Theseus have substitutes in his ship? Does a substitute or substitutes in a meal still give the same effect as the original meal intended? Does it improve or lessen the meal, objective opinions aside. And after watching your Christmas tree video what traditional meals can have so much substitutes before they no longer taste like traditional meals?

It's super weird having stuff I learned at junior school and heard from my grandparents growing up (rationing, the Blitz and blackout) explained at adult level but to people who aren't familiar at all with them! If MatPat were a Brit making this for Brits, he would have gone '...because of rationing...' and then moved on assuming we'd understand what that meant. I find it fascinating!

There was rationing in the US as well, but it was never as strict as British rationing and (critically) ended MUCH earlier. The British rationing extended years after WWII, while the American rationing was a strictly wartime thing.

I remember having a friend in elementary school who was always eating carrots thinking it would let him see through clothes.
TheIrishninjas Před 4 měsíci
2:57 "They could identify British cities for bombing based on all the lamps that would get lit up at night" Except when that backfired. Interesting fact, in 1941 Dublin in (neutral) Ireland was bombed, likely because it was mistaken for Belfast for that reason.
Patter Song
Patter Song Před 3 měsíci
That's an amazing display of how bad the ability of telling where you were was at that time. Dublin and Belfast are ~160 km (100 miles) away from each other. To mistake one for the other is something that'd be unimaginable today.

Here is a Food Theory for you. I've been told that if you crave specific foods, like having a sudden craving for Mac and Cheese, that is your body actually trying to tell you that a specific nutrient in that food is low or needed by your body. This idea is especially pushed when women who are pregnant have strange or odd cravings that they would normally not have.

I always noticed my night vision increased when I ate a carrot, my night vision was already fine, but got improved.
jorgelotr Před 4 měsíci
Additional fact of vitamin A (also called retinol): the molecule that allows the light-receptor cells in our eyes to see is a derivative of vitamin A, 11-cis-retinal. It attaches to a protein called opsin and gets dislodged when light hits it, causing the sending of a signal to the brain.

In 4th grade, i did a science fair project to find out if carrots help your vision. I ate so many carrots i got sick. But through the scientific method, it did come up as helping with vision. i got 11th place in the science fair (top 10 moved on to the next round). I was so sick of carrots i stopped eating them for a while. years later and i now need glasses. coincidence? i think not. Edit: why are the '18+' bots commenting on the comment about a story from 4th grade?? they really try and get them young eh?

Vitamin A is necessary to see, so may of temporarily kept your vision healthy enough but obviously it wasn't a permanent fix for your bad eyesight and I don't think continuing to eat them would of kept your eyesight good. I myself eat carrots often, yet my eyesight has been getting worse for years, the carrots didn't stop it and I still ended up with bad eyesight.

@Roxlefox Some researcher tried to find out what kind of health detriments eating too many eggs could have. A "journalist" only read the excerpt and thought it was the conclusion and wrote an article stating you should never eat more than one egg a day. The article got copied numerous times by other "journalists" without checking the source and many people (including my mom) blieved this.
