Wow, so I was sitting around just a few minutes ago eating a grapefruit and wondering what the health benefits of grapefruit are. A recent study conducted by researchers at UCLA and Zhongshan University in China discovered that Naringenin, a beneficial plant compound in grapefruit, helped repair damaged genetic material (DNA) in human prostate cancer cells. DNA repair is an important factor in cancer prevention since it stops cancer cells from multiplying. The research was published in the February 2006 issue of the Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry. Scientists noted that DNA repair by Naringenin might contribute to the cancer-fighting effects associated with a diet high in fruits and vegetables. I found this information at: Grapefruit Health Benefits So go eat a grapefruit, and enjoy!!
