Health News: Can Orange Juice Prevent Cancer?

Orange juice that is high in antioxidants from flavonoids such as hesperitin and naringinin has cancer fighting properties. Evidence from in vitro studies shows that orange juice can reduce children’s risk of leukemia, and also help fight breast, liver, and colon cancer. Overconsumption of orange juice can be toxic however, especially for children and diabetics and those with hypertension or liver problems. As always, the more natural (i.e., less processed) the product is, the better it will be for you.
