Childhood Myth Shattered

Normally, I love Snopes.com, however, this story dismayed me. The old yarn that carrots improve your eyesight is the only way we get our 5-year old to eat his. He is positive that someday he will see well enough in the dark to "sneak up on Daddy!" I hope he does not learn the truth for many, many years.
On the flip side, what I thought was a myth, eating too many carrots can make you orange, is apparently true. I guess the wife wasn't exaggerating about her cousin after all...
