Fruits are good for you .. or are they?

PicAttic.com

We have just done the shopping for the following and this is the picture of our supply of fruit for the next seven days. We are two adults and a child under ten. Seems a lot, dont it? I am so glad we have large variety of fruits to choose from in the shops of Manchester, as you can see there are some mangoes, chinese pears and mandarin oranges in that pile. We have made it a habit to munch on a fruit when we have cravings for sweets and I personally find that sweet seedless grapes is the best substitute.

You'd think that eating all these fruits cannot do anything but good to your health wouldnt you. Well, as I have found out in the last few years, it does have a major health consequence..... your dental health. Consuming so much acid and not immediately brushing your teeth afterwards can have similar effects as eating sweets. My dental bills have gone up as a result and have lost a tooth, and possibly another in the next few weeks. So be warned..... be careful if you intend to go on a high fruit diet!

hehe. I'm sure it is still better than munching on a chocolate bar.

Oh my, I did not thing of cavities and dental problems. I have terrible dental bills too; is it because I eat a lot of fruit too (and sour fruity candy:))?

Wow~ This is such a healthy lifestyle~

Wow! Am sure you have no problem with your bowel movement. Kekeke.

Anyway, grapes are very very high in sugar content so I don't see it a healthy fruit at all. And imagine how many you pop into your mouth at one go.

Your basket of fruits so ASIAN lahh!
