Free radicals are highly dangerous substances. Free radicals are compounds or molecules that contain one or more unpaired electrons that. With the existence of unpaired electrons, then the result is highly reactive compounds to find his partner by attacking the electron binding molecules around it such as lipids, proteins, and DNA (carrier properties). When this happens there will be damage to cells or cell growth that can not be controlled (can cause cancer)

One way of inhibiting the growth of free radical compounds in the body is by consuming foods that contain lots of anti-oxidants. One of the anti-oxidant substances are  beta-carotene. Beta-carotene is a compound that can provide protection against cancer because it can fight or neutralize free radical compounds. One source is the Carrot caroten beta. The more orange the color, the more betakarotennya content. Carrots are rich in antioxidants can ward off free radicals that can cause cancer, but it also can reduce prostate cancer in men. Carrots can also reduce the risk of stroke, hypertension, to overcome night blindness, eye minus, menstrual pain and constipation.

So, it's better to consume carrots every day, and when you want to cook the carrots, do not be too mature for fear that there are vitamins in carrots will be damaged. In addition to being processed by way of cooking, you can also eat fresh carrots directly with carrot juice, or with steamed and enjoy with peanut sauce.
