How it will Repair my DNA?

Naringenin, a flavonoid concentrated in grapefruit, helps repair damaged DNA in human prostate cancer cells, reports a lab study published in the Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry.
DNA repair is one of the body’s primary defense mechanisms against the development of cancer since it removes potentially cancer-causing mutations in cells.
Unlike many other cancers, prostate cancer is slow growing initially and often remains undetectable for a long time. Enjoying grapefruit regularly may be one way to prevent its progression by promoting the repair of damaged DNA in prostate cells, thus preventing them from becoming cancerous.
