Oh, oranges, lemons, tangerines and grapefruit! MMMM, the crisp clean scent of citrus… delicious eaten as is or squeezed into water… Today’s cancer tip is from a great magazine article “Edible Healing: Food Cures for Cancer” by Prevention Magazine! If you haven’t been a reader of Prevention magazine, I highly encourage you to read it, check it out! On to today’s tip…

Disease-Fighting Fruits – Part One

Fresh and frozen varieties provide year-round protection

Oranges, tangerines, lemons, and grapefruit contain anti-inflammatory compounds called flavonoids that stimulate the detoxification of carcinogens by the liver. Certain flavonoids in the skin of tangerines–tangeritin and nobiletin–can also help promote the death of brain cancer cells.

How to Eat It: Sprinkle grated citrus zest (from organic fruits) into salad dressings or breakfast cereals, or steep in tea or hot water. Eat whole fruits out of hand, toss with other fruits in a salad, or use in a salsa to season grilled fish.

Hope this helps! Catch you back here tomorrow!
