IMPORTANCE OF WATERMELON TO THE BODY

Updated on September 7, 2010

Watermelons are important in life because they bring great joy to college students. There is nothing more fun than getting together with a bunch of your friends on the top of the dorm and throwing a watermelon off the top and watching it explode on the ground!

 

  • I\'ve seen one thrown off a 30-foot waterfall onto a big rock at the bottom. Talk about exploding on the ground!

They provide a cool, hydrating and sweet treat, especially in the summer. They are a valuable cash crop for many small farmers, and an easy to grow vegetable for family farms. Those not used by humans are abundant seed crops for birds and squirrels.

Watermelons are not at all important to life. The only importance watermelons have is their minor nutritional value. Life would go on just fine if there were no watermelons. However, if their ceased to be water, there would be no life. I wonder why someone would question why watermelons are important to life.

They are juicy, refreshing, thirst quenching, delicious and healthy. It's importance in relation to life is negligible. It's not really that important because there are other fruits that fulfill the same qualities as the watermelon, and maybe even better.

Watermelon is a fruit that can be an important part of a daily diet. The watermelon is rich in vitamins A, and C. It also contains vitamin B6 which the body uses for the production of energy. Watermelon is also a fruit that most people enjoy.

Watermelon is also a very concentrated source of the carotenoid, lycopene. Well known for being abundant in tomatoes and particularly well absorbed from cooked tomato products containing a little fat such as olive oil, lycopene is also present in high amounts in watermelon and mangoes.
