Fun Fact: Did you know that the slang “Limey” which is sometimes used to refer to the British is actually derived from lime fruit? In 1757, the Scottish surgeon James Lind conducted the world’s first clinical trial on how #limejuice prevented scurvy — a common disease that plagued sailors during long journeys at sea. This prompted the British Royal Navy to start rationing limes to their sailors. They became one of the healthiest fleets, making the use of lime for scurvy prevention one of the most guarded military secrets of that time!
