Was watching TV. Apparently there's a new cancer cure just out; purple carrot juice.

You can read all about it on this link.

Here's what they had to say.

There are not many vegetables quite as orange as carrots, but carrots date back to the 16th century and back then they were actually purple.

Well, the purple carrot is making a comeback in specialty grocery stores and it's not just because of the presentational value.

The purple carrot is a nutritional powerhouse and it's being hailed as one of the most powerful foods on the planet for its mighty health benefits.

Modern orange carrots have always been known as an excellent source of vitamin A and phytochemicals including carotenoids, phenolics, polyacetylenes, isocoumarins, and sesquiterpenes.

But the ancient purple carrot has double the level of beta-carotene than the orange carrot and contains 28 times more anthocyanins.

Anthocyanins are potent antioxidants that give vegetables their red, blue and purple colours. But more importantly, they capture harmful free radicals in the body, slow blood clotting and act as an anti-inflammatory agent.

Recent studies have shown that these benefits as well as other antimicrobial and anti-carcinogenic activities can help and prevent with cancer, heart disease, stroke and diabetes.
Professor Lindsay Brown of The University of Queensland is conducting research on the purple carrot and hopes to prove that it is the most powerful food on this planet.

So there you go. There must be something in it. Here are the words the spell-checker didn't know.

phytochemicals, carotenoids, phenolics, polyacetylenes, isocoumarins, sesquiterpenes, anthocyanins.

On the track
40 minutes on the stepper at 120 bpm for 692 steps and 529 calories. Weighted 86.8 kg. Getting worse. Must be sabotaging myself! Maybe it's all muscle!

In the meantime stay tuned, highly tuned and keep eating purple carrots.
