Why all the fuss over fruits and
vegetables? Bryant says, “One
reason is that these foods are ex

studies have been conducted on
the relationship between vitamin
C or foods high in vitamin C and
cancer. In about three-fourths of
these studies, high vitamin C in
take significantly reduced the risk
of cancer.
Evidence of this safeguarding

cancers of the oral cavity, esopha

Vitamin C seems to act as an
antioxidant in the blood stream,
countering particles called free
radicals that are formed by the
body. Free radicals can damage
cells. This damage is thought to be
one of the first steps in the devel
opment of cancer.
Not getting enough vitamin C
also has been linked to three major
heart disease risks low density
lipoproteins (LDL) cholesterol,
high density lipoproteins (HDL)
and high blood pressure. Recent

One theory on heart disease is
that it begins when LDL, the ma

blood, is oxidized in the blood by
free radicals. Researchers have
reason to believe oxidized LDL
