new research says that 5-A-Day gives our skin a sexy, appealing glow;
no matter that we’ll live longer too;
it’s all about the 3 carotenoids.
The House Finch knows about this already.
comes from pigments in his food: cherries, peaches, strawberries;
the more pigment, the redder he gets, and the Mrs. picks the reddest guy.
It’s all about the Glow.
