One of the best things about our health is that we can do so much to help ourselves. In most of these situations, such as eating fresh fruit and vegetables, there is little if any cost. By that i mean we need to buy food to survive so all we need 피망머니상 do is buy the right type of food. And in this case we’re discussing red bell peppers. They came originally from South america and are members of the same family which includes potatoes, tomatoes and eggplant. Bell peppers come in a variety of colors including red, yellow and green. They are called bell peppers because they are in the shape of a bell.
Two great qualities of red bell peppers are that they can help in the risk reduction of a number of cancers – lung, prostate, ovarian and cervical – so men and women alike can freely consume this vegetable, and red bell peppers have benefits for our health in ways other than cancer reduction. They can help in the fight against cholesterol, heart disease and other degenerative diseases.
Red bell peppers are packed with antioxidants which are brilliant in attacking free radicals. How does this happen and why is it important?
Well when two atoms join they form a molecule – if two water atoms join they form a water molecule. But each molecule has an electron and sometimes the electron escapes from the molecule which makes that molecule a free radical. Now free radicals are the bad guys. They go on the attack. They look for a healthy molecule and steal its electron. This makes that molecule also a free radical. Now these roaming free radicals can get into our healthy cells and do serious damage. If enough cells are attacked by these free radicals it can result in a breakdown of our immune system, damage to vital organs and even be the catalyst for heart disease and cancer. So clearly we need to remove the free radicals. Okay, but how?
Well the ideal weapon is antioxidants. Free radicals fear antioxidants.
But life is often not quite so simple. You see free radicals can be created within our body as explained before but we can ‘collect’ them too from the air we breathe and from the toxins in the food we eat. There’s another reason why diet is so important in our fight to stay healthy and reduce our risk of cancer.
Red bell peppers are packed with antioxidants – the enemy of free radicals. Remember we cannot stop free radicals but we can certainly weaken them and reduce their dangerous capabilities. And did you know that red bell peppers contain more vitamin C than oranges?
One study of 8000 adults found that the consumption of red bell peppers reduced the risk of various cancers by as much as 27%. Red bell peppers can help you fight heart disease, improve your eyesight and reduce your risk of cancer. They are usually available all year round. What are you waiting for?
