Eat green leafy vegetables in summer to help prevent skin cancer
As summer approaches, sun protection is mentioned by many beauties as the most important part of skin care.
When it comes to sun protection, too many people think that green leafy vegetables such as celery contain light-sensitive substances. After eating green leafy vegetables, exposure to the sun may promote skin aging and dark spots, making people eat more and darker.
As a result, Fan Zhihong, associate professor of the Department of Nutrition and Food Safety, School of Food Science, China Agricultural University, disagreed.
According to Fan Zhihong, research shows that the absorption rate of chlorophyll is very low, and more than 95% is excreted from the large intestine after absorption.
Therefore, it is impossible to enter the body in large quantities at all.
A small amount of chlorophyll that enters the body is mainly distributed in the liver, lymph nodes and spleen, although it is also found in the skin, but the amount is very small.
Avoiding green leafy vegetables for sun protection is simply making people abandon an excellent food.
Because chlorophyll has the effect of alleviating body odor, it is still a very good detoxifying substance and a promising anti-cancer substance, including skin cancer.
She suggested that you should even eat green leafy vegetables in summer, and you should eat more.
There is no problem of skin spots caused by “photosensitivity”, but it is helpful to prevent many kinds of cancer including skin cancer.
It is understood that the Nutrition Society of Developing Countries recommends eating 4?
5 two dark green vegetables.
