    Fruit consists for the largest part of water
    Just like the human body does. If you think about it, it's logical to consume food that contains as much water as your body does...

    Fruit Stimulates Our Memories
    If you didn't know yet: fruit is the ultimate brain fuel. Fruit has a positive effect on our brains and makes you recall information easier and faster...

    The Miraculous Healing Effects Of Fruit
    Spectacular stories about people that cured from cancer by a strict diet of raw fruits and/or vegetables are well known but do we want tobelieve them? We still don't know that much about fruit and its contents...

    Fruit Is 100% Bad-Cholesterol Free
    No doubt about this reason. Too much cholesterol is not good for our bodies and fruit doesn't contain much cholesterol. Animal products like meat and dairy contain a lot of cholesterol...


    Fruit Makes You Feel Better
    Several stories have told us about people that were frequently depressed and how they got out of their depression slowly but surely after consuming substantial amounts of fresh fruit on a regular basis. Eating a lot of fruit can have a mysterious healing effect on human beings...


    Ethical Reasons To Eat Fruit
    Fruit doesn't have to be killed and slaughtered before you can eat it. The fruits are just hanging there waiting to be picked by you...

    Fruit is not expensive at all
    Did you always think that fruit is an expensive product? Take a good look at how much money you spend on other food. It could be worth something to replace some of those expenses with fruit...

    Fibers
    We do know now that a diet with plenty of fibers helps against corpulence, high blood pressure, and other factors that increase the chance for a heart disease. The food that contains these healthy (natural) fibers is.... right: FRUIT!

    Fruit Is The Most Natural Food
    Fruit is food that has been made by plants to be eaten by animals and humans in order to spread its seeds...

    The Human Diet
    Here at The Fruit Pages we are convinced that a good human diet should consist of freshly squeezed fruit juices, bread, vegetables and some water. Since it is hard for the average homo sapiens to conform him or herself to such a severe diet, we suggest that one starts by eating five to nine pieces of fruit a day...

    Some of us have absolutely no ethical concerns over killing and slaughtering, furthermore, some of us even enjoy it.

    But be careful to not eat too much raw fruit, the acid can wear away at the enamel on your teeth. [​IMG]

    Current thinking suggests that drinking large quantities of fruit juice is not healthy.

    So fruit is alive after you pick it? Then why does it rot after being picked?

    Why is this logical? We can drink water, and there's no shortage of it here.

    Source, please.

    My Doctor just started me on this great drug, it's called Placebo.

    Define "a lot".

    Mysterious healing effect? Anecdotal evidence is worthless.

    Hanging where? I don't live in rural America, honey, ain't many apple trees in these parts.

    McDonald's Dollar menu is pretty cheap too, but I have no desire to eat it just because it isn't expensive.

    Pretty sure vegetables have you beat here.

    Are you suggesting cows are not natural food? Are they supernatural?

    That's homo sapiens sapiens, to you, buddy. And your crappy diet is severely lacking in protein and good taste.

    Fruit is expensive man. A bag of grapes here costs 6-7 bucks. 1lb box of strawberries, 4-5 bucks. If you're talking about apples and banana, then sure. But even still, it's worth it.

    Harvey, I think he meant that by eating a lot of fruit, you're also consuming a lot of water, killing two birds with one stone.

    +1 fruit is NOT cheap. At least not where I live.

    I visited family in Michigan and at their local market apples were literally HALF the cost they are where I live.

    ^Yeah, it's crazy. In Chile, you can buy 10 avocados for the price of one here.

    too much of any food is bad. even too much anti-oxidants become pro-oxidants.

    the key to a healthy diet is variety.

    there are no essential food groups, only essential nutrients. fruits and vegetables just happen to be nutritiously dense.

    I think I'm going to become a cannibal following this logic. The closest thing to the human body is ANOTHER human's body. Yum.

    Isn't the problem with cannibalism, prions? That most tribes that practice cannibalism show signs of CJD from this - especially the women who get the lower quality "cuts".

    lol this reads like a cheesy advertisement. are fruit growers really doing that poorly to start paying forum posters commission on fruit sales?

    great post, and thanks for calling out the bullshit in the OP.
