In summer, among the most popular berries, both in adults and children, are watermelons, and this is not surprising, because they have good taste qualities.
In addition, they contain many useful substances that improve the work of certain organs, including kidneys, clearing them of harmful accumulations. Scientists have proved that thanks to microelements, watermelons improve blood composition and normalize blood pressure.
Incorporating them into the diet strengthens the protective properties of the organism in opposing various diseases.
It is well known that in the springtime, cases of poisoning with watermelons are often encountered, and the main reason for this is that farmers often use various chemicals in order to speed up the process of their maturation, because it is in spring that they have a high price. Also, do not forget that when growing them, fertilizers are used, most often artificial ones, as a result of which the level of nitrates in fruits is higher than the permissible standards.
One Of Them Is The High Level Of Nitrates
However, recently cases of poisoning with watermelons in autumn have increased, and the reason for this is also the excess of the level of nitrates, because there are cases when fruits are not ripened completely mature in order to keep them longer. In addition, for better transportation and increasing the duration of injury, the crust is treated with a special fluid that eventually absorbs into the flesh of the fetus.
Therefore, when buying watermelons pay attention to their appearance, which should be natural and not have external damages.
It is also worth not to buy a cut watermelon, because 90% of cases on its surface there are pathogenic bacteria that enter the intestines, multiply, which can trigger the appearance of many diseases.
As a result of the conducted studies, the specialists compiled a list of products that it is recommended to include in the diet in the autumn, not only to strengthen immunity, but also to improve mood. These include sour-milk products of fatty varieties, nuts, legumes, not to mention vegetables and fruits, in which during this period of the year there is the greatest amount of nutrients.
