Fruit, the forbidden food?

You guys already know how I feel about the insane notion that fruit isn’t “healthy enough” for people to enjoy regularly, right?

I never thought the day would come when people were scared and worried about eating fruit. And I’m not talking about the scare we had last year when certain frozen berries were contaminated with hepatitis A!!! I’m talking about people being worried that fruit is unhealthy, that fruit will cause weight gain, diabetes and be harmful to the liver. Fruit, the wonderful gift from nature, full of health promoting properties like vitamins, minerals, fibre, antioxidants and phytochemicals are being lumped in the ‘high sugar must avoid’ category along with soft drinks, sweets and sugar filled processed foods. Fruit is being likened to chocolate bars and it breaks my heart that it has come to this. It amazes me that while 30% of calories from the average Australian diet comes from discretionary foods people are concerned about eating fruit!
