Orange is the New Carrot (Well + Good)
Remember when you were a kid and your mom constantly reminded you to eat your carrots or else you’d go blind? Turns out that this crunchy snack has a newer, sweeter, alternative. A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that an apple a day isn’t the only fruit that can keep the doctor away. They found that people who ate at least one orange a day reduced their risk of developing macular degeneration (that’s just a fancy word for vision loss) by 60%. Looks like it’s time to upgrade your daily cup of joe to something a little bit sweeter.
