Orange Aid

"A compound present in citrus reduces the risk of stroke in women,
a British study suggests. Good to know, since every year in the United
States, 55,000 more females than males suffer from the cardiovascular
attacks. Women with the most flavanone in their diets were 19 percent
less likely to have a clot-related stroke during 14 years of follow-up than
were those with the lowest flavanone intake, probably thanks to the nutrient's
anti- inflammatory properties. As if we needed an excuse to eat an OJ popsicle."
