6 Surprising Side Effects of Eating Grapes
Did you know that grapes are one of the most popular fruits in America, right after strawberries and bananas? It’s not all that surprising, either. Grapes taste as sweet as candy, make a convenient portable snack since you don’t need utensils, and are just plain fun to eat. Not to mention, they’re packed with a wide range of beneficial nutrients, so you can generally feel good about eating them.
