March 24, 2016 – Disease-Fighting Food Is Color Coded
Frances Largeman-Roth, Registered Dietician and author of Eating in Color, cites which color food is good for fighting which diseases. In the red family, watermelon is the best red fruit because it’s high in lycopene which can help in lung cancer, stomach cancer and prostate cancer. Orange foods, such as mangoes, carrots and sweet potatoes have lots of antioxidants that boost the immune system.
Lemons and other citrus fruits are high in Vitamin C and also bioflavonoids. Bioflavonoids help us ward off chronic conditions such as cancer and heart disease.
