See, you see, right now, I’m sure even in Ahemdabad it’s true. Every city, it’s true. At 40 degree centigrade, he’s selling fruit. How much of it will be left? Even if the fruit is there, nothing is there in it because fruit is 90% water.
There is substantial medical evidence to show you, any food that you eat, its water content should be higher than your body’s water content. You must eat water, not drink water. This campaign by water bottling companies, in America specially, and it’s gone everywhere – every day you must drink 3 litres of water, 4 litres of water. You will dilute your blood and suffer many things. Micronutrients won’t reach your brain, or various cells, simply because you’re overly diluted. And anyway, all you will do is, you need bathrooms every kilometer. In America there are more bathrooms than the population, because drinking so much water, you have to go all the time.
You must eat water. Your food must have water content
You must eat water. Your food must have water content. You eat dry food and then drink water, it doesn’t do the thing. Fruit has nearly 80-90% water, and that’s why it’s the best thing to consume. We have to bring it back into the nation’s diet. As far back as many centuries, or millennia ago, people have noticed that we were eating a lot of fruit. Because we have the highest variety of fruits in this country. But most of the traditional fruits are gone, most of the fruits you see in the market are from New Zealand, or Australia, or Thailand, or somewhere. Traditional fruits, almost going out. I don’t know what you call them, the local names, but you know, there are so many varieties of tropical fruits in this country, which are all vanishing. From the market it’s vanished. The trees also, I don’t see them anywhere, anymore. Which were all common at one time. I’m not talking 500 years ago, I’m talking 50 years ago this was all very, very common.
