Fruits to Keep The Doctor away

That's Taiwan's top model, Lin Chiling. Wonder which of the two fruits will she choose? For me, I just bought a couple of this fruit, believed to have first been grown in Assam, India. In Islamic garden, it has been used as an ornamental plant and its high Vitamin C content allows it to be used in alternative medicine as a tonic for the digestive system, immune system, and skin. In a popular science experiment in schools, an electrode is attached to it and when used thus as a battery , it can power a small motor! Yes, I am talking about the Lemon battery ! I am talking about the lemon, not the apple. It seems that it's not just the apple that can keep the doctor away!

For me lemon is the good help for intoxications I have too often. I knew, it's good to clean and wash floors but never heared about battery! Thanks for interesting information!

Lemon is an acidic fruit, it's a good electrolyte and can be used to light up a bulb too! In my country, there used be a section that discuss this.
