      Mishiko was the sister of my grandfather. She fell ill during the war, doctors diagnosed poor hydration.
      In Japan, watermelon is a very popular fruit and holds much water. So her parents gave it to her regularly.
      But the diagnosis was wrong; it was a salt deficiency and she died shortly after.
