    Citrus fruits, like all other fruits, are good for your health because they contain many nutrients. Oranges contain anti-inflammatory properties and can reduce symptoms of hypertension. The vitamin C in oranges help fight cancer and reduces the risk of death associated with cardiovascular disease, cancer, and stroke, although there are many other types of foods such as brussel sprouts and broccoli that can provide the same amount of vitamin C with less amounts of calories. Oranges are great foods to help fight cancer. Grapefruits are another type of citrus fruits that contain cancer fighting properties, and they can also lower cholesterol and promote weight loss. Lemons help to reduce swelling naturally, and can help with stomach aches caused by acid indigestion.
    Bascially, all citrus fruits contain high levels of vitamins and nutrients, especially vitamin C. They are a natural food that help with weight loss and fighting diseases such as cancer and high cholesterol.
    Hope this helps!
