Link: Not only are bioflavonoids impressive in and of themselves, but they also help maximize the benefits of vitamin C by inhibiting its breakdown in the body. The great thing is that bioflavonoids are often found in many of the top vitamin c foods.
What do broccoli, kale, red onions, hot peppers, rutabaga, spinach and watercress have in common? They’re all vegetables that top the charts, specifically the USDA Flavonoid Database, for their high bioflavonoid content. (1) As such, you should consume these bioflavonoid foods because they’ve been shown to have antiviral, anti-allergy, anti-inflammatory and antitumor abilities.
Link: The ability of flavonoids to positively impact the human body in a large variety of ways appears to be related to their ability to regulate cell signaling. Flavonoids have been shown to exhibit anti-inflammatory, antithrombogenic, antidiabetic, anticancer and neuroprotective activities.
Is it a coincidence that not only the various fruits and vegetables contain the vitamins we need, but the bioflavonoids also come with the fruit, which help prevent break down in vitamin C for example. The link says, "bioflavonoids are commonly found in foods alongside vitamin C". Is this a coincidence? It seems unlikely. This counts as evidence of teleology.
Obviously in the bible, we imagine the first people wouldn't have got scurvy, because of all of the various fruit in the garden. The abundance of available vitamins would be taken as granted. But it seems fruits and vegetables are purposefully created to give these health benefits.
I'm aware that you could counter; "it's symbiosis, the mutual benefits from angiosperms living alongside us."
Of course we also breathe in the oxygen given by angiosperms.
Can you imagine a diet rich in fruits and vegetables at the beginning of creation, and there is every reason to believe that the original foods were even more beneficial then than they are now, if we assume the creation account is true and we live in a post-flood world. We also know the longevity in the bible, for people, was greater. This is an almost pointlessly extraneous information it seems, if the bible is fictional. There seems to be a direct link between those long ages lived initially in the bible, and creation. As we get further along from creation, post-flood, the longevity of people seems to diminish.
(forgive me for dispelling the myth that I only read creationist resources. The source isn't creationist. I regularly read many secular articles as part of trying to keep a healthy diet and it always fascinates me that I seem to come across information all of the time, which directly favours teleology.)
For example calcium and magnesium are both contained in dark leafy greens.
" Magnesium works with calcium to support proper blood pressure levels and prevent hypertension. Without a proper balance of magnesium to other minerals like calcium, a heart attack can even occur due to severe muscle spasms." (from google)
It's as though God packages things with their complimentary nutrients, so that this increases the chance that if you eat something healthy, you get all the benefits rather than half.
CONCLUSION: It's no great checkmate but I believe this is what we would expect from a purposed creation, as evidence.
