A new study has shown that people who regularly eat oranges are less likely to develop macular degeneration than people who do not eat oranges. Researchers at the Westmead Institute for Medical Research interviewed more than 2,000 Australian adults aged over 50 and followed them over a 15-year period. The research showed that people who ate at least one serving of oranges every day had more than a 60 percent reduced risk of developing late macular degeneration 15 years later.

There are so many environmental hazards that can threaten your skin. Two of the most common are sun and air pollution. The UV rays that the sun gives off are very strong and can be harmful to the skin. While a good sunscreen will usually do the trick to protect your skin from harm, some of those store-bought sunscreens actually contain additives and ingredients that are bad for you and the environment.
