Many good nutrients:
Lettuce is low in calories but rich in vitamins, minerals, fiber ; phytonutrients ; has a surprising amount of protein. Romaine ; red lettuces are healthiest. I strongly advise choosing organic when possible as conventional lettuce often has high pesticide residues. See http://www. Care2.Com/greenliving/10-powerful-advantages-of-eating-lettuce. Html ;

Depends on goal: These are both vegetables. The steamed carrots have higher nutritional content and assuming you eat the lettuce without dressing, there are more calories in the carrots.

I ate tiny brown slugs in organic lettuce by accident. Can this cause disease? If so what kind of disease. I am quite concerned.
Very low risk: Hello! I am sorry to know about your eating accident. You have a low chance to become ill. Slugs are mostly harmless to humans.

Found lettuce on my sandwich that had a brown slightly slimy spot. Removed it and ate the sandwich. Will I get sick from cross contamination?
Food poisoning...: Usually food poisoning symptoms develop within the first couple of hours after ingestion. Based on what you are describing this should not affect you. If it was contaminated you should have symptoms by now. If that was the case plenty of fluids and rest most of the time helps. In cases where the people gets very sick then they should be seen. If no symptoms then there is nothing to worry about. ...Read more

Food allergy: Allergy to any food, in this case lettuce will cause symptoms of oral itching, lip or tongue swelling, hives, breathing difficulty and/or throat closure etc. It is caused by IgE antibody against a specific protein in the food.

Yes: Lettuce is a food that commonly causes gas whether you have a gallbladder or not. Gallbladders store bile which helps digest fats, so people often have a harder time digesting fats after gallbladder surgery. I advise taking bile salts/fat-digesting enzymes in those without gallbladders. Having no gallbladder should not increase gas from lettuce. Carbohydrate-digesting enzymes & probiotics may help. ...Read more

Can? Yes. Should? No: Lettuce & rhubarb are rich in vitamin K. As such, they will interact with coumadin (warfarin).

All this is hard to track - it's best to either not eat these foods, or eat the SAME, small AMOUNT, consistently at EVERY MEAL at the SAME TIME each day. TTYD. ...Read more
