Yes, it’s true that grapefruit might be able to help you drop a few pounds. (According to a 12
week study known as “The Grapefruit Diet.” For 12 weeks, adults who ate half a grapefruit
three times a day before each meal lost an average of 3.5 pounds.) But it can also play a role
in fighting certain types of cancer.
We should mention that no single food can protect you against cancer on its own, but research
suggests that incorporating plant-based foods (like grapefruit) into your diet may help lower
the risk. Kind of a big deal.
