Orange Juice Could One Day Help Prevent Cancer

Drink homemade orange juice right after it is made otherwise it loses some quality

Orange juice contains vitamin C and several other key nutrients, and has also been linked to a reduced risk of obesity in adults, but recently-published research suggests that it could also help prevent cancer.
In a review article that was published online last month in Nutrition and Cancer: An International Journal, a team of Brazilian experts presented evidence linking the popular fruit drink with cancer chemoprevention. They also discussed the putative mechanisms and potential adverse health effects associated with orange juice.
They found that orange juice (OJ) contained several potentially beneficial effects when it comes to battling cancer, especially due to its high antioxidant content from flavonoids such as hesperitin and naringinin. In addition, they said that evidence from earlier in vitro studies indicated that the beverage could reduce a child’s risk of developing leukemia, as well as aiding chemoprevention against mammary, hepatic, and colon cancers.

“OJ has antimicrobial and antiviral action and modulates the absorption of xenobiotics,” the authors explained in the study. “Therefore, OJ could contribute to chemoprevention at every stage of cancer initiation and progression. Among the most relevant biological effects of OJ is the juice’s antigenotoxic and antimutagenic potential, which was shown in cells in culture and in rodents and humans.”

  1. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied
    on the video to make your point. You definitely know what youre
    talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your
    site when you could be giving us something informative to read?
