Why Beets? Any deep reason/drush or otherwise? Shabbos 118b also mentions.

What's wrong with saying that beets are healthy?
be'Virchas Kol Tuv
..Torah answers everything. I found a Bnei Yissoschar... but not for this point.... Torah protects so how are beets and beer the same?
I take a number of medications, though why or how they cure me, I don't generally know. Likewise, Chazal, who were great doctors, teach us that beets and beer made from hops, prevents the skin disease called 'Ra'asan'.
I cannot tell you why - Chazal could. I don't understand your objection to our original answer.
