More and more articles about “The Dirty Dozen” appear in the media. If you did not hear about it, yet, it will surprise you that it is about a list with names of fruits and vegetables, that are cultivated with so much pesticides, that they are not healthy but dirty. Maybe you are not even informed about pesticides. Maybe you heard that governments of countries have decided what is safe, and what is not safe. That the levels they agree with are indeed safe. But. Since pesticides are life-killers, the word safe does not fit.

A YouTube channel with quality videos and important messages:
"We conduct research that enables informed decision making about the use and management of forests in less- developed countries.

We help policy makers and practitioners shape effective policy, improve the management of tropical forests and address the needs and aspirations of people who depend on forests for their livelihoods.

Our work responds to a call for an urgent, strong and sustained effort focused on forest management and governance, recognizing the crucial role of forests in confronting some of the most important challenges of our time: climate change, poverty, and food security."

Lose weight
One reason to add lemon juice to your water is to lose weight. Pectin fiber, present in lemons, helps fight hunger cravings. Lemon juice is also a digestive aid. It encourages the production of bile, which is what breaks down food during digestion. Drinking lemon water can also help keep your liver clean. This is important because the liver metabolizes fat and secretes bile. Together, these small advantages can help you lose weight over time.

Boost your immune system
Drinking lemon water can also help keep your immune system strong. Due to its antibacterial properties, drinking lemon water can help soothe a sore throat. Lemon water is a great support to the lymphatic system, which works in conjunction with your immune system to trap and eliminate pathogens. Lemon water helps cleanse the lymph stored by the nodes of the lymphatic system. Lymph is basically a collection of "garbage" collected from the body.

Reduce inflammation
Adding lemon juice to your water can help significantly reduce inflammation. Lemons have anti-inflammatory properties. They also help neutralize acidity which is the main cause of tissue inflammation. Lemon juice is acidic outside of the body but once metabolized, it becomes alkaline. Alkalinity reduces acidity and thus, reduces inflammation.
Lemon has a high level of Vitamin C.
