Good afternoon, dear OFL's. For those of you who have been around our forum for a while, you know that Doreen is our resident researcher and has given us a lot of valuable information over the months. I knew I liked lemons, but didn't know the wonderful health benefits! So, Doreen thank you! Here they are:
