The truth about fruit revealed!
||1) BBC news articles
- Modest increases in fruit and
vegetable intake of just one or two servings a day may be associated with
large benefits for health.
- Scientists have come up with
hard evidence that eating fruit and vegetables cuts the risk of heart disease.
- Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant
and is found in many fruit and vegetables. Antioxidants prevent cholesterol
from 'oxidizing' - the process that leads to the furring up of the arteries.
- Scientists have examined the
cancer-fighting potential of various chemicals found in the flesh and skin
of apples and they have found that together, these chemicals have an effect
which far outweighs that of taking only vitamin C.
||2) In season: Fresh Pineapple
A tasty and nutritious fruit
popular in Thailand, the Phillipines and many other countries around the
world. Store in the refrigerator.
How about a fine fruit salad of
pineapple and blue grapes? Serve in a little bowl with a small fork in
front of the television, just before diner, with or without cream.
Fresh fruit is a great appetizer.
Have fruit before other meals, not after.
Fresh pineapple is a good source
of vitamin A & C and contains everything a human needs, even
a tiny bit of protein. Vitamin A is good for healthy skin and hair and
is necessary for proper bone growth, tooth development, and reproduction.
Pineapples contain a protein-splitting
enzyme. Other fruit that contains this enzyme are fresh kiwi, papaya and
babaco. This substance makes the fruit easy to digest and fried together
with meat it makes it more tender. If you put this fruit in dairy products
it will make them watery. If the fruit is cooked like all canned and other
processed fruit this enzyme is no longer active.
