A research was conducted at one of the universities with about five thousand students living on campus. Three hundred male and three hundred female students were randomly picked to answer a questionnaire on The Benefits of a Healthy Diet – The Importance of Lemon Fruit.
The research revealed that only three percent of the students had actively taken interest in including a lemon fruit on their menu while staying on campus each semester. Of the three percent who were active partakers of a lemon fruit in its various preparations, most of them said they had come up with the habit of including lemon fruit consumption from their homes while very few of them said they had only learnt to do so at campus because of mingling with their friends who valued the lemon fruit.
Of course, there was a high probability that the same students who had nothing to do with a lemon fruit could not have been exposed to it from their homes. No wonder they could not have a high regard for it on campus.
Did you know that a lemon fruit contributes greatly to a healthy lifestyle? Medical experts say a person who wants to maintain his or her good health should consume about two thirds of fresh vegetables and fruits in his or her diet. Other people say, “An apple per day keeps a doctor away from your home.”
An apple per day, therefore, represents any fruit included in your diet. I pity the students who avoid consuming a lemon which is one of the citrus fruits with many benefits. You will not value a lemon fruit until you go for medical examination and the doctor tells you that you are living a healthy lifestyle because there are no traces of cancer cells in your body. The doctor has also not found any traces of hypertension and that sugar levels in your body are normal. You then thank the doctor and you probably announce to him or her that you are a regular lover of lemon fruit and that you have enjoyed its many benefits. The doctor tells you to keep up the spirit of including a lemon fruit in your diet and he tells you some more of its benefits which were unknown to you.
From the medical examination room you now become excited and you want to share the knowledge of the benefits of a healthy diet and the importance of the lemon fruit.
ORIGIN OF THE LEMON FRUIT
The lemon fruit is said to have originated from Northeastern India. Its scientific name is Citrus Limon. It was first introduced in Europe before spreading to other continents. The fruit spread to many places quickly because many people found out about its nutritional benefits. As the fruit became more and more popular, other people improved upon it according to the flavor of their choice. They came up with ways of blending the lemon fruit with other nutritious foodstuffs such as honey, ginger, garlic. Such mixtures added a lot of fruit value to the already valued lemon fruit.
THE SEVENTEEN BENEFITS OF LEMON FRUIT
Medical researchers have come up with many reasons why the lemon fruit is beneficial to the one who consumes it in one way or another:
. The high content of vitamin C makes lemon fruit an antioxidant. Therefore, cancer related diseases are greatly minimized or just done away with. According to researchers, lemons are much more effective than chemotherapeutic agents in slowing down the growth of cancer cells, especially when eaten as the whole fruit together with peels.
. Lemon consumption increases blood circulation and eliminates the clotting of blood in your body.
. Lemon boosts the immune system.
. Presence of Vitamin B in lemons helps your heart to be well protected while your bones are strengthened. Vitamin B also creates energy in your body.
. Presence of vitamin B6 prevents you from seizures, anemia and cardiac arrest.

. The presence of vitamin E improves your immune system to prevent cancer, diabetes. It also enhances skin healing and improves scar healing without leaving deep cuts.
. The presence of folic acid (Vitamin B9) is very beneficial to those consuming a lemon fruit or its combination with other foodstuffs or drinks. In the United States of America all childbearing age female persons between the age of fifteen and forty-five are advised to consume about 400 micro-grams on daily basis. Therefore, a lemon fruit is available to solve this problem. Other nations should take a leaf from the United States of America and advise their nations to notice the importance of lemon fruit and its vitamin B9 content.
. The presence of thiamine (Vitamin B1) is crucial. You will not have Vitamin B1 deficiency in your body. In some countries, breakfast cereals and products baked with white flour or white rice is enriched with Vitamin B1 to avoid deficiency of this type of vitamin in your body.
. The presence of copper mineral in your body helps you to stay healthy. When your body has copper deficiency, bones and blood vessels begin to disintegrate

With all the above stated benefits from a lemon fruit, you, too, can sympathize with those who have found themselves being haunted by various diseases that could have been prevented by a bite of a lemon fruit or drinking lemonade.
If I were the Secretary General of United Nations or a World Health Organization representative, I would recommend every household to have a lemon tree planted in the backyard. People who enjoy a healthy diet are people of great exploits for they will not be distracted even for a moment to think of a looming disease. Let us toast with lemonade to maintain our healthy lifestyle while enjoying a bite of a lemon fruit.
