The Anti-Wrinkle Pizza


From the "they'll eat this up" files: A pizza from Southern Italy is said to be an anti-wrinkle pizza. The Associated Press reports that the "primula" pizza has three times the amount of fiber found in a classic pizza, along with more magnesium and iron. It's also laden with antioxidant-rich ingredients such as tomatoes, arugula, garlic, zuchinni, basil, mushrooms, carrots and spinach. And here's an odd endorsement: Apparently Pope Benedict XVI loves the stuff.

But does it work? Well, we already know that fiber is healthy (FitSugar just told me that it radically reduces your risk of breast cancer). And you don't need to be YumSugar to know that pizza is tasty, which makes you happy, which reduces stress.... But wrinkle-preventing? I don't know about that. A diet rich in antioxidants certainly is healthy, but to keep lines away, your best bet is to stay out of the sun.
