It seems like each and every day we read about new research into the health benefits of oranges. So when we write about “Learn how oranges are helping to fight Leukemia” I am sure you thought that we were going to do a story on the latest research into oranges.
Something like this from the Daily Mail in Britton. Oranges 'cut cancer risk'
by Tim Utton, Daily Mail
An orange a day is the best bet for keeping cancer away, according to scientists. Researchers believe eating the citrus fruit can cut the risk of some examples of the disease by up to 50 per cent. They also found that consuming an extra serving can reduce the risk of a stroke by 19 per cent. As well as providing vitamins and fiber, citrus fruits boost the immune system and fight the growth of tumors. But few Britons are consuming enough fruit and vegetables to gain the full benefit.
Only 13 percent of men and 15 percent of women eat the recommended five portions of fruit and vegetables a day, according to the Department of Health. The latest study found that consuming citrus fruits could cut the risk of mouth, larynx and stomach cancers by up to 50 percent. These cancers alone kill more than 8,000 Britons a year.
