Shortfalls in Carotenoid Intake May Impact Women's Health
Date:10/5/2010

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., Oct. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Only about a third of American women are meeting their fruit and vegetable intake recommendations,(1) which means they are likely missing out on potentially important breast and ovarian health benefits.

Nutrilite is the world's leading brand of vitamin, mineral, and dietary supplements, based on 2008 sales.
