 :woohoo: This is an email that was sent to me which I thought would be well shared among many

This is informative!

 We all think eating fruit means just buying fruit, cutting it up and popping it into our mouths.
It's not that easy. It's important to know how and when to eat fruit.

What's the correct way to eat fruit?


Eating fruit like that plays a major role in detoxifying your system,
supplying you with a great deal of energy for weight loss and other life activities..

 Let's say you eat two slices of bread, then a slice of fruit. The slice of fruit is ready to go straight through the stomach into the intestines, but it's prevented from doing so. In the meantime, the whole meal rots and ferments, and turns to acid. The minute the fruit comes into contact with the food in the stomach, and digestive juices, the entire mass of food begins to spoil.
Eat your fruit on an empty stomach, or before your meal!
You've heard people complain: Every time I eat watermelon I burp, when I eat durian my stomach bloats,
when I eat a banana I feel like running to the toilet, etc. This will not happen if you eat the fruit on an empty stomach.
 Fruit mixes with the putrefying other food and produces gas. Hence, you bloat!

 Graying hair, balding, nervous outburst, and dark circles under the eyes
all of these will NOT happen if you eat fruit on an empty stomach.

 There's no such thing as some fruits, like orange and lemon are acidic, because all fruit becomes alkaline in our body,
according to Dr. Herbert Shelton who did research on this matter.
 If you have mastered the correct way of eating fruit, you have the Secret of
 Beauty, Longevity, Health, Energy, Happiness and normal weight.
When you need to drink fruit juice drink only fresh fruit juice, NOT from the cans.
 Don't drink juice that has been heated. Don't eat cooked fruit; you don't get the nutrients at all.
 You get only the taste.   Cooking destroys all of the vitamins.

 Eating a whole fruit is better than drinking the juice.
If you should drink the juice, drink it mouthful by mouthful slowly,
because you must let it mix with your saliva before swallowing it.
 You can go on a 3-day fruit-fast to cleanse your body.
Eat fruit and drink fruit juice for just 3 days, and you will be surprised when your friends say how radiant you look!

 KIWI:   Tiny but mighty, and a good source of potassium, magnesium, vitamin E & fiber. Its vitamin C content is twice that of an orange!

 AN  APPLE a day keeps the doctor away? Although an apple has a low vitamin C content, it has antioxidants & flavonoids which enhances the activity of vitamin C, thereby helping to lower the risk of colon cancer, heart attack & stroke.

 STRAWBERRY: Protective Fruit. Strawberries have the highest total antioxidant power among major fruits & protect the body from cancer-causing, blood vessel-clogging free radicals.

 2 - 4 ORANGES oranges a day may help keep colds away, lower cholesterol, prevent & dissolve kidney stones, and reduce the risk of colon cancer.

 WATERMELON: Coolest thirst quencher. Composed of 92% water, it is also packed with a giant dose of glutathione, which helps boost our immune system. Also a key source of lycopene, the cancer-fighting oxidant. Also found in watermelon: Vitamin C & Potassium.

 GUAVA & PAPAYA: Top awards for vitamin C. They are the clear winners for their high vitamin C content. Guava is also rich in fiber, which helps prevent constipation. Papaya is rich in carotene, good for your eyes.

BANANA is an excellent source of potassium, bananas help maintain proper blood pressure and heart health. Add one banana a day to your diet to improve brain functioning and ensure a properly functioning nervous system.

Drinking Cold water after a meal = Cancer!
Can u believe this? For those who like to drink cold water, this applies to you. It's nice to have a cold drink after a meal, however, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you've just consumed, which slows digestion. Once this 'sludge' reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine. Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to cancer It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.

Women should know that not every heart attack symptom is going to be the left arm hurting. Be aware of intense pain in the jaw. You may never have the first chest pain during the course of a heart attack. Nausea and intense sweating are also common symptoms. Sixty percent of people who have a heart attack while they're asleep do not wake up. Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep. Be careful, and be aware. The more we now, the better our chance to survive.

 A cardiologist said if everyone who gets this mail sends it to 10 people, you can be sure that we'll save at least one life.  It can even be your life!
