So much has been written about the benefits of pumpkin that it is just right to take this vegetable to the pharmacy - it cures all diseases. I can not judge the healing qualities without a special education, but I read a lot that the carotene in some varieties of pumpkin is 5 times more than in carrots. And this, as I remember from childhood, is a powerful antioxidant and a precursor of vitamin A, which children must consume in large quantities in order to grow healthy and strong.
