Watermelon as good a statins for blood pressure!

The American Journal of Hypertension, (2010; doi: 10.1038/ajh.2010.142) have come up with this research, and although it is not exactly ground-breaking news, it is typical of an enormous amount of research evidence published that points to natural foods being as good as drugs for medical conditions. 


Well, I suppose it would be difficult for any natural food to be worse than the toxic drugs ConMed provides us with in the name of health! Certainly, any natural food is considerably less expensive. And very, very much less dangerous!


Watermelon is apparently the richest edible source of the amino acid L-citrulline, which regulates blood pressure. How about taking this as a dietary supplement then? No, in this form, it can apparently cause nausea, gastrointestinal problems and diarrhoea.


So just eat the food (especially if it is organically produced). And certainly steer clear of Statin drugs (see my previous blogs on these awful drugs).


Our health is more in our control than most people realise. Good diet, healthy life-style, exercise, and steering clear of toxic ConMed drugs will usually enable our bodies to stay healthy.
