Oranges

OrangesOranges have phytochemicals called monoterpenes that protect against cancer and fight existing cancers. There are several bioflavonoids from citrus that inhibit certain cytochrome P450 enzymes. One such cytochrome enzyme P450 1B1, can activate cigarette smoke, pesticides and other substances in the body to become carcinogens. Hesperitin, the most abundant bioflavonoid in the juice of oranges, inhibits P450 1B1 from metabolizing procarcinogens, reducing the opportunity for them to become carcinogenic. Oranges are also rich in vitamin C and folate.
