The other day when I went to the library they had bags of lemons outside from a local garden with sign "Free" I went in and asked as I don't like to take things just like that and yes, they were free. So I picked up some as strangely enough you don't see lemons in the markets and I thought it would be an ice change from limes.

They were big and juicy and it has been nice to cook with them and have lemon juice in my water instead of lime.

    Frozen Lemons and Cancer

    So place your lemon in your freezer, and then grate it on your meal every day.

    It is a key to make your foods tastier and you get to live healthier and longer!

    That’s the frozen lemons and cancer secret!

    Better late than NEVER!

    The surprising benefits of lemon!

    Lemon (Citrus) is a miraculous product to kill cancer cells. It is 10,000 times stronger than chemotherapy.

    Why do we not know about that? Because there are laboratories interested in making a synthetic version that will bring them huge profits. You can now help a friend in need by letting him/her know that lemon juice is beneficial in preventing the disease. Its taste is pleasant and it does not produce the horrific effects of chemotherapy. How many people will die while this closely guarded secret is kept, so as not to jeopardize the beneficial multimillionaires large corporations? As you know, the lemon tree is known for its varieties of lemons and limes.

    You can eat the fruit in different ways: you can eat the pulp, juice press, prepare drinks, sorbets, pastries, etc… It is credited with many virtues, but the most interesting is the effect it produces on cysts and tumors. This plant is a proven remedy against cancers of all types. Some say it is very useful in all variants of cancer. It is considered also as an anti microbial spectrum against bacterial infections and fungi, effective against internal parasites and worms, it regulates blood pressure which is too high and an antidepressant,combats stress and nervous disorders.

    The source of this information is fascinating: it comes from one of the largest drug manufacturers in the world, says that after more than 20 laboratory tests since 1970, the extracts revealed that It destroys the malignant cells in 12 cancers, including colon, breast, prostate, lung and pancreas …The compounds of this tree showed 10,000 times better than the product Adriamycin, a drug normally used chemotherapeutic in the world, slowing the growth of cancer cells. And what is even more astonishing: this type of therapy with lemon extract only destroys malignant cancer cells and it does not affect healthy cells.

    Did you know

    Christopher Columbus brought lemons to the New World on his second voyage in 1493.

    Historians believe that lemons have been growing in Florida since about the 16th century.

    I think lemon in your water is a great idea. I've been doing it for years and it just gives you that freshness we all crave in the middle of winter. I've also bought Watsons flavoring (favorite is pineapple) and used those. Sounds like you're doing great - hang in there and keep the spark!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Naki
