A Simple Pineapple - MUST Read

The pineapple is a member of the bromeliad family.
It is extremely rare that bromeliads produce edible fruit. The pineapple is
the only available edible bromeliad today.

It is a multiple fruit. One pineapple is actually made up of dozens of
individual floweret's that grow together to form the entire fruit. Each
scale on a pineapple is evidence of a separate flower.

Pineapples stop ripening the minute they are picked.
No special way of storing them will help ripen them further.
Colour is relatively unimportant in determining ripeness.

Choose your pineapple by smell.
If it smells fresh, tropical andsweet, it will be a good fruit.

The more scales on the pineapple, the sweeter and juicier the taste.

After you cut off the top, you can plant it.
It should grow much like a sweet potato will.

This delicious fruit is not only sweet and tropical; it also offers many
benefits to our health. Pineapple is a remarkable fruit.

We find it enjoyable because of its lush, sweet and exotic flavor, but it
may also be one of the most healthful foods available today.

If we take a more detailed look at it, we will find that pineapple is
valuable for easing indigestion, arthritis or sinusitis.

The juice has an anthelmintic effect; it helps get rid of intestinal worms.

Let's look at how pineapple affects other conditions.

Pineapple is high in manganese, a mineral that is critical to development of
strong bones and connective tissue. A cup of fresh pineapple will give you nearly 75% of the recommended daily amount.

It is particularly helpful to older adults, whose bones tend to become
brittle with age.

Bromelain, a proteolytic enzyme, is the key to pineapple's value.
Proteolytic means "breaks down protein", which is why pineapple is known to be a digestive aid.

It helps the body digest proteins more efficiently.
Bromelain is also considered an effective anti-inflammatory.

Regular ingestion of at least one half cup of fresh pineapple daily is
purported to relieve painful joints common to osteoarthritis. It also produces mild pain relief.

In Germany, bromelain is approved as a post-injury medication because it is thought to reduce inflammation and swelling.

Orange juice is a popular liquid for those suffering from a cold because it
is high in Vitamin C. Fresh pineapple is not only high in this vitamin, but because of the Bromelain, it has the ability to reduce mucous in the throat.

If you have a cold with a productive cough, add pineapple to your diet.
It is commonly used in Europe as a post-operative measure to cut mucous after certain sinus and throat operations.

Those individuals who eat fresh pineapple daily report fewer sinus problems related to allergies.

In and of itself, pineapple has a very low risk for allergies.

Pineapple is also known to discourage blood clot development. This makes it a valuable dietary addition for frequent fliers and others who may be at risk for blood clots.

An old folk remedy for morning sickness is fresh pineapple juice.
it really works! Fresh juice and some nuts first thing in the morning often
make a difference.

It's also good for a healthier mouth. The fresh juice discourages plaque growth.

and bananas have potassium for pain in the bones and they are supposed to be perfect too.
so why are there so many sick people.
someone is just trying to boost sales.
I see your point.
The Gvmt passes too many inspections on foods and drinks that are distributed among the people, that are harming them.
Everywhere you turn people are dying of cancer. America is losing lives by the millions for cancer, stroke, diabetes, thyroid disease which is a form of cancer.
Then you have the floride that is being thrown to us, that is causing harm also.
All of the above makes you think twice about conspiracy theories of population control.
Repeat: Millions are dying. Millions of little babies are being killed. Think about it.

Our Government sponsored FDA allows hundreds of known killers to be sold daily in America all while suppressing items scientifically proven to have medical value.

Our FDA allows those low density plastic bottles the majority or bottled water and soda pop come in. It has been proven beyond doubt that those plastic bottles deliver multiple cancer causing agents into that liquid when the bottles are filled yet the FDA allows them to sell a few million bottles a day.
Tobacco kills hundreds of thousands a year and costs billions of tax dollars on medical for tobacco users yet the FDA allows it to be sold to anyone that can pay for it.
Its beyond obvious that our FDA is as corrupt as mitch mcconnel and hal rogers. The whole bunch of them should be held 100% accountable for their actions.
We have lots of good stuff available for sick people if they would stop looking at research dollars, make it a criminal offense to lobby politicians and start using common sense to make decisions concerning safe or not safe products and make sure no political issues have any bearing on decisions this would have to be a lot better place to live. Graft and corruption on a grand scale have ruined America for the working people. IF your not already rich your probably not going to be unless your a politician that is hooked up with the right connections in DC

It really doesn't matter to our government how harmful any product is as long as they can tax it. Look at alcohol and tobacco. Two of the biggest killers, either directly or indirectly, but taxed to the hilt. It's all about money. Always has been, always will be.

Tobacco isn't only smoked, but smoke isn't what kills smokers its the toxic crap that is put in the tobacco is what kills them.. No one has ever gotten lung cancer from smoking pot.. You can bet they will if pot is legalized. They will fill it full of toxic chemicals too.

look it up on any site about raw pot
