"Popenoe described the fruit hunter's methods bluntly: "You go to some forgotten town and hire a native boy. Then you buy three animals—horses, mules or maybe camels—one for yourself, one for the boy and one for the baggage. Then you head for the back country and keep going until you reach a place where there are so few cooking vessels that you can pay for a night's lodging with an empty tomato can. Then you go to the village marketplace and watch like a hawk for everything brought in to be sold. You almost make love to the natives. You get invited to dinner."

"Knowing that there are fruit out there that nobody has brought home and if you can, you'll be another Bill Whitman." He's such a beloved figure that every June 7 is Bill Whitman Day in Miami. In his floppy white sun hat, Murray Corman of the Garden of Earthly Delights Nursery looks like an older Gilligan from Gilligan's Island. Corman explains that Whitman has exposed him to "unotherworldly" flavors."

"This didn't prevent fruit peregrinations to Algiers, South Africa and Tunisia, where he discovered a single apple tree growing "under the shade of Palms in the island of Sfax." He lounged around the Riviera, listening to nightingales and ordering magnums of what his compatriot George Saintsbury called "supernacular" wines. A bachelor concerned with "the science of living," Bunyard was also a scientist. At the same 1906 conference on hybridization where the word "genetics" was first adopted, he presented a paper on xenia, the effect of pollen on seeds."

"Sneaking it outside via the rear entrance, I sit down in a nearby vacant lot and pull the fruit's sections apart. As the moon wavers in the thick haze, I dig in. Its flavor has improved since the afternoon—it seems to be at its apex of ripeness. The taste is somehow familiar, yet elusive. With every bite I try to place the flavor. Then it hits me: Froot Loops! Tasting it triggers a recollection of how, as a child, I'd use my allowance to buy boxes of Froot Loops. I'd sneak away and covertly eat bowlfuls in bed under the covers while reading Archie by flashlight."

"Here are the suggestions to help you get your five a day: • Drink fruit or vegetable juice with breakfast. • Have a piece of fresh fruit or raw vegetable sticks as a snack. • Have a fruit salad or vegetable salad with lunch or dinner. • Have a vegetable side dish with the main meal for the day. • Have fresh fruit for dessert. • Top your cereal with dried or fresh fruit. • Add raw vegetables to your sandwich. • Choose fruit-flavored, lowfat yogurt. • Choose whole-grain breads with fruit. • Add vegetables to other dishes."

"The reason that Risch and others believe that there is "fruit at the top of the tree" can be summed up in two words: twin research. Due to their unshaken faith in this research and its underlying assumptions, they refuse to consider the possibility that there is no fruit at the top of the tree. It is ironic that, whereas Gregor Mendel did not need twins to make his landmark discoveries, psychiatric geneticists' misguided faith in twin research has led them into a blind alley."

"Now, however, we are left with the great majority of the fruit at the top of the tree with no obvious way to reach it. In genetics terms, these are the numerous genes of smaller effect that are likely to underlie most common, familial traits and diseases in humans ?that is, the genes more closely related to the biometrical view of the world.3 1.

"They are effectively the "low-hanging fruit" that are easy to harvest. Now, however, we are left with the great majority of the fruit at the top of the tree with no obvious way to reach it. In genetics terms, these are the numerous genes of smaller effect that are likely to underlie most common, familial traits and diseases in humans ?that is, the genes more closely related to the biometrical view of the world.3 1.

"All breakfasts and lunches should include a fruit. It can be any fresh fruit or canned in its own juice. The best choice is whatever is in season. Aside from fruit canned in syrup, there is no bad fruit choice. The fruits that are on these menus are just suggestions. Eat what you like, what's in season, what you have on hand, what the cafeteria has out. Calcium-fortified orange or grapefruit juice are good choices, but don't get all your fruit in juice (unless you're using a modern juicer), as it lacks fiber and has concentrated levels of sugar."

"A serving is equal to one medium-size fruit, one-half cup raw or cooked vegetable, one cup lettuce or spinach, one cup fruit or vegetable juice, or one-quarter cup dried fruit. Nine servings can seem ovewhelming, considering the average American is lucky to get three a day. But a little planning can go a long way. You can get three easily just at breakfast if you put one-half cup of applesauce on your oatmeal, drink a cup of juice, and eat a piece of fruit. Pack fruit or vegetable pieces for snacks, choose salads for lunch, and include a vegetable or two at dinner and you should be covered."

"Due to their unshaken faith in this research and its underlying assumptions, they refuse to consider the possibility that there is no fruit at the top of the tree. It is ironic that, whereas Gregor Mendel did not need twins to make his landmark discoveries, psychiatric geneticists' misguided faith in twin research has led them into a blind alley. Fortunately, the continuing failures in psychiatric molecular genetic research have value in that they provide further evidence against the twin method's validity as an instrument for the detection of genetic influences on psychiatric disorders."

"Fruit has special digestive requirements and should be eaten alone. fruit is easy to digest and is meant to pass through the digestive system quickly. If not, such as when combined with protein or starch, the fruit sugar ferments in the stomach, often manifested by bloating and gas. If sweet and acid fruits are to be eaten together, eat the acid fruits first. Melons should be eaten alone or combined with other melons because they take even less time to digest than other fruits and should pass quickly through your digestive system in order to prevent sugar fermentation."
- Raymond Francis, Never Be Sick Again: Health is a Choice, Learn How to Choose It (Get the book.)

"Only 41 percent consumed any fruit or fruit juices. • Only 10 percent of the population met the USDA guideline of eating a minimum of five servings of fruits and vegetables a day. Among African Americans, only 5 percent ate the recommended amounts.2 Even though physicians and registered dieticians recommend that we consume multiple servings of fruits and vegetables daily, our society is falling woefully short. This study shows us that if we exclude French fries and baked potatoes, more than half of the population is not eating any vegetables."
- Ray D. Strand, What Your Doctor Doesn't Know About Nutritional Medicine May Be Killing You (Get the book.)

"Eat fruit for breakfast every morning. 2. Follow the European tradition and snack on fresh fruit, not chips or crackers. 3. Take dried fruit with you to work. 4. Eat at least one green salad every day. 5. Have two vegetables at dinner. 6. Have fresh fruit for dessert, or at the very least, serve desserts that are based on fruit, such as single crust apple or berry pies, or apple cake. 7. Eat soups that contain more vegetables than meat or noodles. 8. Grill vegetables along with the meat. 9. Set aside thirty minutes each weekend to prepare fruit and vegetable snacks for the coming week."

"Eat fruit alone. fruit is rapidly digested in the stomach and small intestine. If it's mixed in with other foods that take longer to digest, such as meat, the fruit will be quickly broken up by digestive enzymes, but then forced to wait while the other foods are digested. While the fruit is waiting to move on through the digestive system, it ferments, releasing gas and causing other problems. fruit should be kept moving quickly through the digestive system, which is why it's best eaten by itself (and not with vegetables, grains, or other foods)."
- Larry Clapp, Prostate Health in 90 Days (Get the book.)

"For example, bagged, peeled vegetables and fruits or bagged cut lettuce and salad blends have exposed the vegetable or fruit to the air and there is significant vitamin and mineral loss when you do that. Even eating a whole apple is better that eating the apple sauce since the heat and air exposure destroys the nutrients." "What is the difference between diets of elderly people and younger people? " Kevin L. Snead: "There is definitely a big difference."

"Fructose is fruit sugar. Lactose is milk sugar. Maltose is malt sugar. Maple sugar is fructose. Sugar is sugar. Sugar, sugar, sugar! Well, what about glucose! Yes, we do need glucose for life. But the body makes the glucose all by itself. It does not need assistance from the Imperial Sugar or American Crystal Sugar Company or the Fidel Castro Sugar Company. The body makes glucose out of the meat, grains, vegetables and whole fruits that one eats naturally. It simply does not need all of those "-oses."

Calcium-fortified orange or grapefruit juice are good choices, but don't get all your fruit in juice (unless you're using a modern juicer), as it lacks fiber and has concentrated levels of sugar. All dinners should include a large mixed green salad with a variety of vegetables and 1 tablespoon of low-fat dressing."

"Grapefruit juice is okay, but other fruit juices should be very diluted, at least 1:1 with water. Freshly squeezed is best. Avoid full-strength fruit juices, canned fruit juices, and all dried fruits. Yeast and Mold-Containing Foods: these are allowable only if you're not allergic. However, I would introduce them very gradually (eat a particular food no more than once every three to four days) and not begin until you have been on the diet for at least three weeks."

"In botanical terms, fruit is the developed ovary of a plant—it carries the seeds of fife, protecting and nourishing them. fruit pulp is rich in water and air, so it is cool, light, purifying, harmonizing, and sattvic in nature. Dense but juicy sweet or sour fruits like berries, cherries, plums, oranges, grapefruits, and bananas, when ripe, are better for Vata, while cooler, sweeter fruits like sweet grapes, melons, and mangos are good for Pitta."

"In women, reduced cancer risks of all sites combined and of the colon were noted for combined intake of all vegetables and fruits, fruit intake alone, and dietary vitamin C. Supplemental use of vitamins A and C showed a protective effect on colon cancer risk in women. There was some suggestion that beta-carotene intake and supplemental use of vitamins A, C, and E were associated with reduced risk of lung cancer in women, although none of these results were statistically significant. Improves Life Expectancy Vitamin C also appears to be useful in prolonging survival."

"Quercetin is found in fruit; however, an optimal amount is obtained only in vine-ripened fruit. Another source is onions. Curcumin is found in turmeric, a cooking spice. While tocotri-enols are found in rice oil or palm oil; it is easiest to take them as a supplement. Magnesium is in fruits, vegetables, nuts, and grains: However, due to the farming methods that now predominate, many soils are lacking in magnesium. This leads to lower levels in fresh food than what was historically available. Magnesium is also the mineral most easily lost by stress."

"The diet used is called the living food diet: all food is served uncooked and consists of fruit, berries, vegetables, mushrooms, nuts, seeds, legumes, and cereals. With such a diet, vitamin supplements are a must. Diets such as these are usually less than 2,000 calories per day and so lead to weight loss—a side benefit. On the other hand, your body can't get all of the vital nutrients it needs from fruits and vegetables alone, so this diet can be dangerous; that's the reason vitamin supplements are critical."
