Ehhhhh, What's Up Doc?

Eating carrots 'makes you more attractive': study - Yahoo! News: "Eating strongly coloured vegetables and fruit such as carrots and plums makes people more attractive, according to a new British study.

Researchers at St Andrews and Bristol universities studied the relationship between skin colour and attractiveness, and found people with a yellow skin hue were perceived as particularly healthy and attractive, the Grocer magazine reported.

They also established for the first time that yellow pigments, or carotenoids, from certain fruit and vegetables played a key role in producing yellowness in skin."

True. At one point my sister had that problem from eating too many carrots (and not enough else).
