Health Tip: Eat Prunes

Moreover, prunes have more protective antioxidants than any other fruit that may help combat chronic diseases, including cancer, heart disease, diabetes and dementia. Wrinkles?

Eat prunes! In a large study, elderly people who ate the most prunes, apples, vegetables, olive oil, fish and legumes had fewer wrinkles and less sun-damaged skin than those who ate lots of meat, butter and milk products.
