今天读了一篇文章是关于水果石榴的历史与好处的,一下子回到了小时候的时光,记起小时候爷爷家菜园傍边的水果树,有一棵特硕大的就是石榴树,石榴的香味好好闻啊,诱人的成熟石榴清香好像就在昨天;每年每到石榴成熟的时候,扑鼻的飘香,这也是小鸟们最欢乐的季节,而奶奶告诉我:小鸟吃过的石榴一定是最甜的,所以小朋友都嫌弃小鸟吃过的石榴,只有我每次抢先大口吃着甜甜的石榴:小伙伴们嫌弃而诧异的面容,我现在还记得如此的清楚啊:张着嘴额额额看着的样子:哈哈哈,我的小伙伴们,也不知道都去哪了啊。感谢这篇文章让我勾起如此甜蜜的回忆。下面把这篇文章一起分享在这,与我的童年石榴回忆一起永存:)。这篇文章来自VOA:

From VOA Learning English, this is the Health & Lifestyle report.

The pomegranate is one of the oldest known fruits. Pomegranates are found in ancient writings and pictured in the ancient art of many cultures and religions. The pomegranate is also a symbol of health, fertility and long life.

Experts think the pomegranate is native to northern India, Pakistan, Iran and Afghanistan. Today it also grows in Southeast Asia, the western U.S., Armenia and parts of Africa, among other places.

The skin of a pomegranate is strong. It can be red, purple or orange-yellow. The inside is filled with beautiful dark red seeds that shine like rubies. It is not easy to get them out. But the reward is great.

Health benefits

The pomegranate grows on trees. Parts of the pomegranate tree and fruit are used to make medicine.

The pomegranate is used for many conditions. However, the U.S National Institutes of Health says there is not enough scientific evidence to rate pomegranates as effective for any of them.

Still, in traditional medicine, the pomegranate is used for conditions of the heart and blood vessels, including high blood pressure and "hardening of the arteries."

The jewel-like seeds of the pomegranate are loaded with many nutrients and chemicals called antioxidants. These antioxidants remove poisons from the body.

The antioxidants found in pomegranates may help remove build-up of damage in blood vessels. So, it is a very heart-healthy fruit.

Antioxidants slow the progression of age-related sickness and may slow the growth of cancer cells. Men who have prostate cancer may benefit from a daily serving of pomegranate juice.

Pomegranates are used for weight loss and used as a treatment for sore throat. Pomegranates are also high in vitamin K, phosphorus, magnesium, calcium, zinc and iron.

Let's just say pomegranates are loaded with great things for the inside of your body.

Beauty benefits

But let's not forget the outside, too!

Pomegranates are great for the skin. They protect the skin by encouraging new skin growth, healing wounds and repairing tissue. Pomegranates protect the skin against sun damage as well. They may help skin look younger by providing moisture and elasticity.

Recipes for pomegranates

But how does one eat a pomegranate?

Pomegranates seeds are both sweet and tart. A thick liquid, or syrup, from the pomegranate tastes great with lamb, pork or chicken dishes.

Pomegranate seeds provide extra flavor to salads and other vegetable dishes. The seeds are also delicious in rice and grain dishes. And, of course pomegranates make great desserts. In the U.S., pomegranate juice is often added to sparkling drinks, drinks called smoothies and alcoholic drinks.

Fresh pomegranates are only available in the United States from September to January. They can keep, or remain good to eat, in the refrigerator for about two months if kept in a plastic bag.
