I never consider type 2 diabetes to be diabetes, which my dad was for over 40 years. I would really have to think that fruit should really replace the standard deserts these people are eating.

When I was a child fruit was more often our dessert ~ even if it was a a bowl of home canned peaches.

it's an individual thing, some folks may be able to eat them but others will have problems.

Eat only fruits and vegetables, then you will not have a bad conscience for all animals must die for you to eat, why not Frutarian.
