Do We Need to Fear Fruit Sugar?

There is little fear about the sugars in whole fruit!

Information from the Australian Health Survey reveals those with higher intakes of whole fruit were 12% less likely to be obese than those with lower intakes. Those with higher intakes of sugar-sweetened soft drinks and chocolate were 9% more likely to be obese. There is no need to fear fruit sugar, although chemically similar, the combination of other nutrients and the overall diet probably account for the difference.

PositiveTip: Eat more fruits as they are an excellent source of many wholesome and necessary nutrients.
