There are several risk factors that make women more vulnerable to certain diseases for men. For example, dementia and heart disease are still the leading causes of death in women in Australia. Fortunately, there are ways to fend off these serious diseases and protect your immune system, and it's by fortifying your diet with antioxidant-rich foods. These superfoods claim big bragging rights for lowering cholesterol, improving digestion, promoting weight loss, and maintaining healthy skin and hair. If you're eating most of these foods already, good for you, but if you're skimping on them, it's time to load up your shopping trolley.
