BABY CARROTS - EAT @ YOUR OWN RISK

The small cocktail (baby) carrots you buy in small plastic bags are made
using the larger crooked or deformed carrots which are put through a
machine which cuts and shapes them into cocktail carrots . most people
probably know this already.

What you may not know and should know is the following: once the carrots
are cut and shaped into cocktail carrots they are dipped in a solution
of water and chlorine in order to preserve them (this is the same chlorine
used your pool) since they do not have their skin or natural protective
covering, they give them a higher dose of chlorine.

You will notice that once you keep these carrots in your refrigerator
for a few days, a white covering will form on the carrots, this is the
chlorine which resurfaces. At what cost do we put our health at risk to have
esthetically pleasing vegetables which are practically plastic?

Chlorine is a very well known carcinogen.

It is your choice to eat it or not!
