Laboratory tests show that lemon juice is a potent destroyer of sperm, Australian researchers say.
If planned tests in primates and people are successful, lemon juice could be ideal for women without easy access to safe barrier contraceptives, such as condoms, says the team at Melbourne University, led by Roger Short.
But experts in anti-AIDS medications warn that the safety of using the juice internally and its efficacy in people are as yet unknown.
Short says a solution of half a teaspoon of lemon juice wiped out two teaspoons of sperm in 30 seconds. The high acidity of the juice is responsible for killing the sperm.
The great advantage of lemon or lime juice as an anti-viral contraceptive is that the fruit can be grown very cheaply in the developing world, says Short. Women might use the juice by inserting a soaked piece of sponge or cotton wool before intercourse, he says. Women researchers in Short’s lab said using the juice caused no pain.
This method of contraception was widespread in the Mediterranean before the advent of modern methods, such as the Pill. People would not have used it for 300 or 400 years if it did not work.
