Health: Fruits
« on: March 28, 2021, 07:00:29 PM »
While we're discussing diets, I'll mention that many fruits have been selectively bred to increase sugars for decade after decade now.  The result is that some are candy disguised as a fruit.  The sugar is high enough that two zoos (AU & DE(?)) have had to heavily restrict the amount of fruit fed to the animals.  IIRC, the new US food pyramid also demoted fruit a bit, but that is subject to heavy lobbying --so it probably should have been demoted even more.
