The Radar-Carrot Myth on the Food Non-Fiction Podcast

In late November, Manager Maya took a call from one of the producers of a podcast called Food Non-Fiction.  What Lillian Yang wanted to talk about was the 'carrot myth' and how it helped keep the secret of radar during the war.  Maya was, of course, happy to oblige.  The results are up now on the Food Non-Fiction website, and we encourage you to listen and share your thoughts (and carrot recipes) in their comments section. 

While it's true that carrots are good for you and improve the overall health of your eyes, they don't really give you better vision.  At least, not like the Second World War British propaganda machine would have you believe.  So, by all means, eat them, but they won't help you see in the dark.

Remembrance Day

On this day, we do not celebrate war, but the willingness of our veterans to serve, sacrifice and protect, and we remember the thousands who never returned. We remember also the unsung civilian heroes, who fought and died, never wearing uniforms. In a larger sense, we also mark the tremendous price paid by all people affected by war and conflict. Whether you remember someone specifically, or contemplate the impact of war in a general sense, thank you for taking time to remember.
