Can’t  BEET  it!   😉       Did you know?
       Beets  possess high levels of antioxidant and
      anti-inflammatory compounds that can assist
      in lowering the risk of certain types of cancer
   and offer resistance against harmful carcinogens.
     Romans considered beets to be an aphrodisiac
             and they promoted amorous feelings.
Eat your Borscht  – Russian Beet Soup. Yep! It helps!  lol
