Have you ever been in a room when someone peels an orange for their snack? Suddenly the whole
room smells great. There are other good things about oranges that you may find interesting.
Studies show that pectin in oranges helps suppress appetite for four hours after eating.
Oranges activate the body's own detoxification process and anti-oxidants in this fruit protect the skin from free radicals and help us avoid wrinkles.
Oranges also contain a natural skin cancer fighting chemical which, along with sunscreens, really does help. Florida, where many oranges are grown, actually has a lower skin cancer rate than any other state on the east coast. Interesting, isn't it?
