Is Fruit Good or Bad for You?


Fruit has been ‘advertised’ to us as being good for us.

It is marketed accordingly to us in nature and by the food industry.

Is it really good for us or are we just succumbing to fruit and the food industry for their benefit, not ours?

How much of the goodness have we been told to believe?

Green leafy vegetables smash fruit gram for gram for fibre, nutrients, minerals and vitamins without the sugar! And they are available all year round.

Listen with an open mind and make your own conclusion. The fruitarians are not going to be happy. I am just presenting the science. See how you go.

This talk was my side of a 2015 Science Week debate for the Royal Australian Chemical Institute.
