Leggo My.. Orange?

So in the spirit of being sick, and having an orange on hand, I have decided to find out if the fruit really is beneficial towards my health... here's what I found...

Apparently oranges, and more specifically sweet oranges, are an ancient cultivated hybrid between a pomelo and a tangerine. (shown below) I had no idea that it was a hybrid, but it makes sense that it is...

There are also a bunch of types of oranges, like Blood orange, Naval orange, Persian orange, to name a few.

= an orange


Oranges are also thought to be beneficial towards Asthma, Bronchitis, TB, Pneumonia, preventing Kidney Stones, Athritis, etc.

Also, I read somewhere that drinking three cups of orange juice over a 4-week period can significantly increase HDL levels and also improve the LDL:HDL ratio. So BAM!
