Baby Carrots Are Cute But Are They Healthy?

Baby carrots are made by cutting down bigger deformed carrots into smaller sized carrots.
Cute right?
But what you might not know is that they are then placed in a Chlorine Solution that contains 50-150 ppm of Chlorine !! 
This Chlorine Solution is used to slow down the growth of bacteria, fungus, and viruses.
What affect does this Chlorine Solution have on our health? Im not sure, but i wouldn't want to consume it.
Chlorine can kill the friendly bacteria (acidophilus) in our digestive system as well as Vitamin E, and essential fatty acids. When your friendly bacteria die, yeasts and other undesirable bacteria can grow leaving your immune system comprimised. One of the other important roles that your stomach bacteria has is to make vitamin K which helps in blood clotting.  Avoid Baby Carrots or buy organic baby carrots. Organic growers use a non toxic solution called Citrox which is citrus based.
Eat regular sized organic carrots !!
