Lemons, oranges, grapefruits, limes, and tangerines are the fruits that are in season right now. That means they are the freshest, tastiest, and cheapest than any other time of the year. It is time to take advantage of delicious citrus and reduce your risk of all types of cancer by 11%, published in the International Journal of Cancer. The same study claims that citrus eaters can cut their cancer risk by 17% with 1 cup of green tea daily. Both are packed with bio-active compounds that block tumor growth and help prevent potential damage to cells.
So grab yourself a cup of green tea and squeeze some lemon into it and you will be doing yourself a healthy favor.
