Just in case you were looking for another good reason to eat your vegetables, here it is: They make you beautiful—and not just in some vague, a-good-diet-gives-you-a-healthy-glow sense. Researchers at St. Andrews and Bristol universities in Great Britain studied the relationship between skin color and attractiveness, and discovered that people with yellow undertones to their skin were thought to look particularly healthy and attractive. The study, reported in the Daily Mail, also established for the first time that people who regularly ate more fruits and vegetables actually have that more-golden skin color. (All the subjects in the study were Caucasian.) Fruits and vegetables, such as yellow and red peppers, spinach, apricots and melons, are high in caratenoids, which in addition to producing yellowness in skin, also offer protection against cancer, heart disease, and other health problems.
