Score again for citrus power! Taiwanese researchers:
Polymethoxyflavones (PMFs), found exclusively in the Citrus genus, particularly in the peel of sweet oranges (Citrus sinensis) and mandarin oranges (Citrus reticulate), have a broad spectrum of biological activities including anti-carcinogenic, anti-inflammatory, and anti-tumor activities. The intake of citrus fruit has been suggested for prevention of the development of certain human cancers. It is also commonly recognized that cancer induction can be prevented by ingestion of certain food phytochemicals. Flavonoids in citrus fruits and juices have been said to be one of the most prominent cancer-preventing agents. PMFs have higher permeability through the small intestine and are readily absorbed into the human blood circulatory system... ~ link
