    What medical or scientific proof do you have of these claims. I’d like them to be true, don’t get me wrong. But nowhere in your bio does it indicate you are the harbinger of scientific data or do you site references to controlled scientific studies. A lot of people on the internet are looking for ‘cure alls’ such as this, and you are actually doing a social harm by spreading heresay.

    For instance, how does lemon juice help you lose fat exactly? Anyone who understands the concept of calories in and calories out would balk at the idea.

    Great article! I’ve been hearing that lemon water is good to drink in the morning but didn’t know all the reasons why. I’ll have to start doing this now! This morning I did feel a sore throat coming on, so I steeped some ginger root and lemon in water with a bit of honey and it cleared it right up.
