It is a good idea to learn what the food we eat do to our bodies. Some foods do not worth the effort you put into eating them; because they provide little or no nutrients to the body. We should concentrate on eating healthy foods so we can live healthy lives. One should not wait until the doctor advises him or her to cut back on this or that. You should take charge of your health because if you don’t, nobody else will.

One of the healthier food to eat is orange. Oranges make healthy snacks, and they are well-known for their Vitamin C content. But scientists believe oranges may help to boost your immune system and improve your skin. Still, that’s not all.  Oranges also aid with heart health, cholesterol levels and other issues.

Orange juice is also nutritious, but it has less fiber than a whole orange.
