Pink- and red-fleshed grapefruits are a good source of lycopene, an antioxidant that has been studied for its possible cancer-protective properties, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center. Grapefruit is also an excellent source of Vitamin C. This recipe was written by the Healthline Editorial Team: http://www.healthline.com/health-recipes/broiled-grapefruit
