A carrot a day keeps the traffic patrol away.

Carrots used to come in many different colors. They were purple, red, white, and yellow. Some believe they were green and black. Popular belief is that in the 16th century a Dutch scientist decided to adapt the carrot to the orange color we are familiar with today. He cross bred a red carrot with a pale yellow carrot to make this orange colored vegetable. Because the Dutch national color was orange, the scientist created the orange carrot to make a "royal" vegetable. -- Adapted from this: http://www.firstjuice.com/about_pc.html
