Are Iran's watermelons tainted? Or are its Persian Gulf rivals drumming up charges?

سه‌شنبه 12 آبان 1394 ساعت 11:45

Last week, customers in Qatar, the United Arab Emirates and Iran's archrival, Saudi Arabia, suspected fruit most foul after spotting holes that "appeared to be made with a drill" in shipments of watermelon coming from Iran, according to alarmed posts on Twitter.

A video soon surfaced of a man in a supermarket pointing out the holes in a neatly organized pile of watermelons.

"The holes appear to have been closed up with what seems like mud," he says as his smartphone camera pans across the watermelon stand.

Other concerned people posted pictures under the hashtag #Boycott_Iranian_Goods, warning fellow watermelon lovers that Iran was injecting poison, carcinogens or lethal viruses into their favorite fruit.

"I wish I knew when the ministers of commerce will realize Iran is the biggest enemy of the [Persian] Gulf countries," Twitter user Ali Shahri wrote. The nation "that exports arms and trouble to our countries, is it trustworthy for us to import our watermelons from it?"

Officials and politicians also took a slice of the action.

Kuwaiti lawmaker Hamdan Aazimi saw the purportedly tainted fruit as a response to Saudi Arabia's bombing campaign against Iran-allied Houthi rebels in Yemen, the Kuwaiti newspaper Al Jarida reported.

For Aazimi, Iran's revenge came in the form of foodstuffs "full of poisonous chemical materials."

Fruits That Give You Energy

سه‌شنبه 12 آبان 1394 ساعت 11:37

Many people are incapable of completing intense tasks, such as workouts, due to a lack of energy. Perhaps they feel drained from work or other responsibilities. The best way to boost energy levels is to increase the amount of nutrients you consume. So, if you often find yourself lacking energy, and wish to seek a natural way to boost your levels, fruits can be a good choice.

Fruits That Give You Energy

Fruits are a great way of obtaining energy naturally and nutritiously. Many fruits contain a high amount of glucose, which can be easily metabolized by the body into utilizable energy. On top of that, the fact that many fruits are digested quickly (often in less than thirty minutes) means that you will be provided with the energy you need fast. The energy that is harvested from fruit by our bodies is all natural, as opposed to synthesized energy drinks and supplements, meaning they will provide real energy, and will not lead to an inevitable crash. Below is a list of fruits that give you energy:

1. Bananas

Bananas are mainly made up of fibre and the sugars, i.e. sucrose, glucose, and fructose, and they are rich in potassium, making them a great source of energy.

How to enjoy: They can be eaten raw on their own, or sliced and included in your breakfast cereal, or topped with almond or peanut butter for a satisfying snack.

2. Apples

Apples are one of the fruits that give you energy as they are high in fibre, meaning that they take longer to digest than other fruits. The positive to this is that it allows apples to provide a sustained source of energy.

How to enjoy: Apples can be eaten raw and whole, or sliced and mixed with other fruit.

3. Oranges

Oranges are rich in vitamin C, folate, and potassium. When eaten, oranges, like apples, will provide you with sustained energy as opposed to a quick jolt.

How to enjoy: The best method of consumption is to peel the outer skin and eat it raw and whole to get the full dose of fibre and pectin from the membranes of the fruit.

4. Pineapple

Due to the high level of sugar within pineapples, they are best avoided by diabetics and those attempting to lose weight. Pineapples are a great and healthy source of energy. They are rich in vitamin C, which has numerous benefits in itself;they also contain manganese, which is helpful in relation to energy output. The sweet and distinctive taste of pineapple can also excite your taste buds amongst a platter of dull and bland tasting foods.

How to enjoy: They can be eaten on their own, or mixed with other fruits to provide a nourishing snack or meal.

5. Strawberries

Strawberries, on top of being delicious, are also great sources of natural energy. An important thing to remember is not to apply extra sugar, as the fruit is sweet enough. Too much sugar consumption can lead to what is known as a sugar crash, whereby your energy levels will deplete, and therefore should be avoided.

How to enjoy: Strawberries can be eaten on their own as a tasty and nutritious snack, or mixed with other fruits, such as pineapple. When mixed with a healthy source of fat and protein, they can provide a healthy lunch with an abundance of sustained energy.

6. Melons

One of the fruits that give you energy that you can go for is melon. There are numerous types of melon to choose from, such as watermelon, cantaloupe, and honeydew, all of which are packed with nutrients and will provide a healthy boost of energy. Melons also contain antioxidants, and taste amazing.

How to enjoy: Eat them raw, make juices or salads with them and enjoy!

7. Blueberries

Blueberries are highly nutritious and contain many antioxidants, meaning they are hugely beneficial to your overall health, as well as beneficial in terms of energy levels. The size and shape of blueberries make them incredibly easy to eat and enjoy.

How to enjoy: As with any fruit, you should wash them before consumption, once cleaned, eat them raw and by the handful.

8. Avocado

Avocados, when eaten even on their own, can be incredibly filling and also provide a natural energy boost, due to the health fats and the potassium found within. Avocados can be great to pick you up when you are feeling down, and can be cut up and consumed anywhere.

9. Papayas

Papaya is a tropical fruit that comes equipped with a natural energy boost, thus making it one of the fruits that give you energy. The fruit is rich in vitamins, and can also be beneficial in combatting the common cold, second-hand smoke, as well as rheumatoid arthritis.

10. Pears

Pears are a highly popular and extremely beneficial fruit in terms of natural energy. They can be eaten raw and whole, or sliced and mixed with other fruits. When consumed, you will be supplied with a long lasting, natural boost of energy.

11. More Fruits That Give You Energy

  • Peaches
  • Apricots
  • Nectarines
  • Plums
  • Cherries
  • Lemons
  • Limes
  • Cherimoya
  • Dates

Note: It is important to remember that when obtaining energy from fruit, it will not be as instantaneous as an energy drink, or other energy supplement. That being said, with patience, the full beneficial effects of obtaining energy in the natural way will be noticeable.

The energy in fruit

The contents of fruit 

As the interest in nutrition increases and people are getting more and more conscious about what they eat, the interest in fruit and its contents also grows. But we still don't know that much about fruit and there is much to discover about the substances that fruit contains. We know it is healthy for us, and that people who are sick can be cured by a diet of raw fruits and vegetables. Even cancer can sometimes be cured by this diet but which substances fruit contains is a mystery. That a human being can live healthily on fruit alone has been proven by the fruitarians, they only consume fruit.

On this page we treat the following subjects:

  • Water in fruit;
  • The burning process & sugar in fruit;
  • Proteins.

Water in fruit 
Planet earth is covered with water for 70%. The human body consists of 80% of water. So what should humans eat: food that contains 80% water. 

If you think about it, it is very logical to have food that contains much water. Al right, you say, then I just drink 8 to 12 glasses of water each day, so I can have as much food that doesn't contain much water as I want. Bad luck, this won't work. You cannot cleanse your body by flooding it with water. Instead of drowning your body, you only have to eat food that is rich in water: fruit, fruit juices and vegetables are the nutrition that fit this definition.

Why is it better to consume food that has lots of water in it? 
All the fixed substances that you consume have to be digested. A steak for instance can take 8-10 hours to digest, while a fruit salad only takes about 30 minutes! If you squeeze the fruit salad and drink the juice, your body can integrate the nutritious elements even faster. In this way your body can use its energy for other purposes than digesting. For example thinking or detoxifying.

Let's take a closer look at how our body extracts energy from food.
