Carrot Tops are are high in chlorophyll, the green pigment that studies have shown to combat the growth of tumors. Chlorophyll contains cleansing properties that purify the blood, lymph nodes, and adrenal glands. Scientists have been unable to synthesize chlorophyll in the laboratory, but green plant foods contain sufficient quantities to protect the human body.
The Greek physician Pedanius Dioscorides (c. 40-c. 90) who studied and wrote about over 600 medicinal plants said that the Greeks used carrot leafs against cancerous tumors.
