Debate Round No. 1

Pro

I would like to thank my opponent for accepting the debate.
Pineapples are also a good source of vitamin C but are very useful in other ways. They contain large amounts of enzymes such as Bromelain. Bromelain has been found to be effective in reducing swelling and is therefore helpful in the treatment of conditions such as arthritis, sore throat and gout.
Pineapple is also useful as an aid to digestion, due to the properties of bromelain and other enzymes.

Manganese is also found in pineapples, which is essential for certain minerals involved in energy production.

As well as containing vitamin C, which has been found to help prevent certain types of cancer such as colon cancer, there have been molecules found in the stems of pineapples which can act as defence against some types of cancer. These types of cancer are skin, lung, ovarian, breast, and colon cancer.

i would like to thank my opponent for his quick response, and likewise, i will demonstrate some of the benefits of lemons on health, and also many other beneficial uses of lemons.

Although the lemon is often thought of as acidic, it is very effective in curing many digestion problems when mixed with hot water, including biliousness, nausea, heartburn, disorders of the lower intestines like constipation and worm infestations. It is even known to relieve hiccups.

Lemon juice, when taken regularly in the morning, acts as a tonic to the liver and stimulates it to produce bile making it ready to digest the day's food. It is also thought to help dissolve gallstones. Because of its high vitamin C content, it is thought to help prevent and treat many infections, hasten wound healing and temper down high fever. Lemon juice also relieves symptoms of asthma, tonsillitis and sore throat.

Lemon is also a diuretic. This means it is good for people with urinary tract infections and high uric acid problems, such as those with arthritis or rheumatism because it helps flush out all the toxins and bad bacteria. When lemon is mixed with coffee, it is thought to help treat malaria. This concoction is also effective for headaches.

When externally applied, lemon juice that is poured onto a small piece of cotton wool and gently applied to the nostrils could stop epistaxis (more commonly known as nose bleeds) although this may sting a bit. When massaged gently into gums, lemon juice may also stop gum bleeding. Lemon juice with glycerin is effective when used on the lips to treat chapping. This may be a little strange but lemon juice applied on your skin can also help prevent sunburn.

Lemons are also used as balms in highly concentrated forms. Some may know them as "cure-alls". Lemon balms are known for their ability to break fevers by encouraging the patient's body to perspire. Because of this, lemon balms are recommended for all fevers, no matter what the cause. Lemon balms are also popular treatments for cough and colds, even hay fever. Balms are also used in the treatment of flatulence and other digestive conditions. Menstrual cramps are relieved by lemon balms, as are dizziness, headaches and high blood pressure.

Psychologically, lemon balm is used to lift people's spirits, especially those who are undergoing menopause and are depressed, because it will calm anxieties, clear their minds and center their focus. It also supposedly improves memory storage and recall.

so as well as physically, lemons can also mentally help indiviuals in some situations.

Although I agree that my opponent's points are valid, I would like to point out that he has quite clearly just "copy and pasted" all of his points from said website.

Extend all arguments.
homoerectus376

Con

the fact that all my points are valid supports me in as what you refer to 'copying and pasting'. it is merely a way of saving time, as as awkward as it may sound to some of you fellow debaters out there, i have a life to get on with, therefore i would rather save time, instead of re-wording valid points which are self-explanatory. i do not see my opponent forwarding any more arguements. this makes it easy for me to say that he simply has nothing left to argue.

A tough debate to judge. I think "healthier" implies normal use as a food, rather than use as a medicine or balm. Lemons are eaten in very small quantities, so whatever nutritional merits they have are minimal. On that basis, factors such as fiber content weigh in favor of pineapples, so I give the slight edge to Pro in the arguments.

When you propose a debate on pineapples and spell it wrong in the resolution, that loses S&G.

Cut and paste is OK in my view, because there is no category for originality. However, not acknowledging the source could be viewed as a conduct problem. I don't think that is serious.
