Hi there and smile! Fruit is a great source of antioxidants. Eating them regularly will stop free radicals attacking and mutating our cells. Fruit is also paced with dietary fibre, which helps to keep your digestion system running properly. Not only will this help expel waste products more efficiently, but it can also help prevent colon and bowel cancers as well, as there will be fewer toxins exposed to that area for less time. Below is a list of the health benefits of eating five portions of fruit or vegetables a day: Reduced risk of a stroke and other cardiovascular diseases Reduced risk of developing type 2 diabetes Reduced risk of developing certain cancers, including mouth, stomach and colon or bowel cancers Reduced risk of developing coronary heart disease Reduced risk of developing kidney stones and osteoporosis Happy mylotting and smile always!

most fruit should be consumed as is. beverages usually lost some nutritional values in the process (think about the fiber and some vitamins on the fruit skin). other than that beverages usually contains added sugar - or worse, fruit flavouring without real nutritions. so fruit is always good consumed as is. plus the chewing helps maintaining mouth health while sugary fruit juice will only add to the problem

Fruits really are good for our health, but real fruits are better than fruit beverages because those drinks already contain artificial ingredients. We should all make it a habit to include fruits in our daily diet. I usually eat mango and banana, and sometimes watermelon and papaya. How about you, dhawanbm, what fruits do you like to eat?

Fruits are indeed good for health but some fruits are injected so that they become ripe quickly like bananas and pine apples. This can be bad for health. Beverages cannot substitute fruits and when taken too much is bad for health

I think that actually eating the fruit is better for you than drinking juices. Eating the friut gives you more fiber and digests more slowly so you don't get so much sugar in your system all at one time! I enjoy juices and I especially like orange juice after a long run. But over all eating the fruit is healthier. When God made Adam and Eve and put them in the garden, they didn't drink fruit from trees! They ate fruit.

Yeah, generally, fruit is more important than beverages. Fruit is better for you and can help solve health problems. Most beverages, however, even if they are fruit juices, have a lot of sugar and many of the nutrients are removed when it is turned into a juice. Personally, I like fruits are better, and think they are better for your health, too.

Science says that fruits are better for you if you eat them. When you eat fruit you get the fiber and other nutrients that are found in the solid parts of the fruit. Fruit juice is fine once in a while, but do not over do it. Fruit juice will not fill you up and is higher in calories per serving due to the fact that it takes several pieces of fruit to make one serving of juice. So eat you fruits and most importantly do not forget that veggies are a very important part of your diet.

Fruits are natures gift to mankind and must be consumed in its natural form. Beverages are health hazardous.
