Grapefruits are not just an excellent source of C-Vitamins but also of ‘Antioxidant Lycopene’. Lycopene rich foods such as the grapefruit and tomatoes…

They of course stay hydrated with sodas, fruit juices etcetera. Whenever I point this out to them, the most common answer I get is this; I don’t like water! Don’t like the taste of it. Some don’t even notice they have drunk…
