The Benefits of Lemons


I love lemons. I always have, ever since I was little. I have always gone towards the more sour fruits than the sweet ones. When I was little, people would always tell me that eating lemons is not good and that I should not eat them anymore. Thank goodness I did not listen because lemons have so many health benefits.
