    Yep...I'm a true believer in the health benefits of watermelon! Several years ago I was volunteering with Hospice visiting dying patients. One of them told me her favorite food was watermelon, but they wouldn't give it to her because she was diabetic. I thought...WHAT! This poor woman is dying, given a few weeks..maybe a month left of life...and she can't have watermelon? So, rebel that I am, I began sneaking it past the nurse so this poor woman could somewhat enjoy her last days. Well, guess what...She lived another seven months! I swear it was the watermelon;-)

    #18 My pleasure! I always love to make science fun, and as you get to know my writings, you'll see how easily I can switch from writing a solo MD manuscript in Pharmacy & Pharmacology International (I submitted it to a Hive that I can't remember)...to writing like a child. Or a mixture. And you'll notice that I like to be different. :-). Was always the black sheep growing up, and have embraced it in my old age! Lovin' your Buzzes, too! It's all good!

    #15 It's quite the sculpture, isn't it, @Lisa Gallagher? Super unique! Inviting you to my Immunonutrition Hive, too, as I'll be focusing on Women's Health, naturally. :-). Love your comment but you can also eat cantalope or honeydew for your skin/hair...and too much of a good thing is bad so make sure to eat plenty of variety with veges/fruits! Take care!

    #14 Coming from you, @James McElearney, I take that as a compliment indeed! I'll be writing lots on Immunonutrition, so feel free to join the Hive...or I can tag you if you'd like. You have a great day!

    #9 Well, if you blow the fresh-cut watermelon with ozone and wrap it with either polyvinyl chloride (PVC) or polyethylene (right away, before the water evaporates), and keep it at 4 deg Centigrade, the shelf-life can be up to 7 days. But what honeybee would want plastic coating on it these days? So....yeah.....the better part of valor is to have a multi-ethnic mix of fruits & veges that are all different colors, and don't eat too much of anything every day. We wouldn't want to see Vitamin A overdose and yellow hands, now would we? Uhmmmm...no, or people would think you were jaundiced and maybe you'd end up with a liver transplant...by mistake!

    Hey @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD, if an apple a day keeps the doctor away, does a melon a day keep the body OK? 🤕

    Hmmm, my neighbour is a doctor. He serves up the best watermelon I ever had. He injects it with vodka. Does that affect its nutritional value? After a few pieces, no one cares.
