"Any fruit is good fruit.
Some studies find a lower risk of cancer among people who eat more fruits
and vegetables rich in carotenoids and vitamin C. Others find a lower riskamong
people who eat more of any fruits or vegetables. But fruit aficionados may
want to pick the most nutritious of the bunch. So we gave each fruit a rating
by adding up its key nutrients: vitamin C, carotenoids, folate, potassium
and fiber. We also added calcium and iron which are less common in fruit
so you can compare scores for fruits to those for vegetables."
After comparing various types
of fruit the guava turned out to be the most nutritious one.
