Personally, I once have had experience with horrible feelings of nausea while at work. My co-worker noticed my situation and offered me a ginger ale. At first, I was quite skeptical about the drink being able to help me. Yet about 20 minutes after finishing the ginger ale, I noticed a mark improvement in how my stomach was feeling. After a little while, I felt completely better. So ever since then, I no longer questioned the power of ginger ale. Since ginger ale actually does include the ingredient of ginger, I also started believing in the power of ginger itself.
However, as I got older, I heard a lot of people talk about how orange juice was not really all that healthy. They said orange juice was just as bad as the soda pop, and that it was a lot healthier to just eat the oranges instead. Was what they were saying about my juice of choice true?
How could it be? Wasn’t natural sunlight enough for my body to produce its own Vitamin D? The problem, according to my medical doctor, was that I religiously applied sunscreen to my body whenever I was outdoors. The sunscreen not only blocked harmful effects from the sun, but it also blocked any chances of my body creating Vitamin D from all of that sun I was getting on my weekly runs outside.
