red beets the poor man's epo

"Betacyanin is the pigment that gives beets their red color; this pigment is absorbed into the blood corpuscles and can increase the oxygen-carrying ability of the blood by up to 400 per cent. "

Based on this random web site, I have to wonder if red beets are a natural EPO? Maybe this farm share wasn't such a bad idea......

only problem, hard to reap the benefits of beet-pumping oxygen when you can't be on the bike because you're on the toilet.
