The first site (1) is a recent news article from the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) that discusses new findings about the lycopene content found in watermelon. A second article from the USDA (2) is a general overview of the importance of phytonutrients. This fact sheet (3) from Ohio State University is a good introduction to what phytochemicals are and what foods contain them. The USDA Beltsville Agricultural Research Center (4) also provides this brief page of frequently asked questions about phytonutrients. A more detailed page from Florida State University (5) includes microphotos of several phytochemical compounds. The Feminist Women's Health Center (6) provides this description of the health benefits of one particular phytonutrient, isoflavone. Those who are looking for detailed information on phytochemical research may appreciate this Web page (7) of abstracts and citations from a number of clinical studies. The last resource from Texas A&M University (8) is the Web page for a course on phytochemicals, but provides several news and career opportunity links that may be of interest to non-students.
