When Carrots May Not Be Good For You

Retinoic acid (vitamin A) found to cause inflammation in certain individuals

Over the years, several of my celiac and non-celiac gluten sensitive patients have reported a dry "gritty" feeling in their eyes--often along with difficulties to focus vision and mind, reddish fingertips, and other signs of active inflammation.

On further inquiry into food changes prior to these signs and symptoms, my patients invariably cite larger than usual intake of foods high in vitamin A. Among the foods named most frequently are beef or chicken liver, carrots, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, winter squash, cantaloupe, dandelion, kale, spinach, collard greens, and a few other foods.
