Why is it important for sailors to have a balanced diet?
When sailors are out at sea, they have no access to the land and its resources. A sailor must maintain a balanced diet in order for their body to receive all the nutrients it needs to function. Sailors back in the day would often get scurvy because they did not have access to Vitamin C while at sea. Now with technology, sailors can easily keep a balanced diet with the right foods and vitamins.

Scurvy was called a sailor's disease?
Your question is unclear, but if you're asking WHY it was nicknamed a sailor's disease... It is because sailors travelled for months, sometimes years without a good supply of Vitamin C/Fruits and Vegetables and so it was common for sailors to develop Scurvy. But after a while limes were taken on board ships to prevent this.
Asked in Calorie Count
Should zero calorie foods be apart of a diet?
Zero calorie foods are good for someone who is on a diet and are counting calories. It really depends on the diet you are on. While zero calorie foods might be low in calories some are high in carbs. If you are on a low carb diet, such as South Beach, this might effect your diet and do the opposite.
Asked in Citrus Fruit
Why did sailor use lemon and lime on their diet?
Sailors (especially British sailors) consumed lemon/lime in order to obtain Vitamin C while at sea. A lack of Vitamin C in the diet causes a condition known a 'scurvy' (which causes your gums to bleed and your teeth to fall out among other things). In olden times sailors at sea for long periods eating preserved food did not get enough Vitamin C in their diets and scurvy was common among sailors. When the cause of scurvy was discovered the navy's of the world began to introduce foods rich in Vitamin C to sailors diets, Lemons and Limes are rich in Vitamin C.

Is vinegar or salty foods while being pregnant?
Not sure what you mean. Neither vinegar or salty foods can become pregnant. Vinegar is still vinegar and salty foods are still salty foods while you are pregnant.... If you are concerned about consuming those foods while you are pregnant talk to your doctor, but in moderation those things should be fine.

What made life on board hard for the sailors?
While life aboard a ship can have moments of terrifying excitement, the truth is that most sailors and merchant marines eventually leave the sea for the same reason - boredom. Merchant seamen on leave commonly go to used book shops with a gunny sack, and buy enough used books to fill the gunny sack - just to have something to do when their work is complete and they are off-watch.
