Dr. Oz’s Fruit Facts!

I received an email a few days ago with tons of fruit information. From what the email said it’s bits and pieces that Dr.Oz has mentioned about fruit. I love learning new things like this. Just thought I would share with you all!

disclaimer: I have NO idea how much of this is true or is not. Maybe I can find a doctor or nutritionist to ask about this? I’d love to know more details as well. 

From Dr. Oz………….

“We all think eating fruit means just buying fruit, cutting it up and popping it into our mouths. It’s not that easy. It’s important to know how and when to eat fruit.

What’s the correct way to eat fruit?


Eating fruit like that plays a major role in detoxifying your system, supplying you with a great deal of energy for weight loss and other life activities.

Let’s say you eat two slices of bread, then a slice of fruit. The slice of fruit is ready to go straight through the stomach into the intestines, but it’s prevented from doing so.

In the meantime, the whole meal rots and ferments, and turns to acid. The minute the fruit comes into contact with the food in the stomach, and digestive juices, the entire mass of food begins to spoil.

Eat your fruit on an empty stomach, or before your meal! You’ve heard people complain: Every time I eat watermelon I burp, when I eat durian my stomach bloats, when I eat a banana I feel like running to the toilet, etc. This will not happen if you eat the fruit on an empty stomach. Fruit mixes with the putrefying other food and produces gas. Hence, you bloat!

There’s no such thing as some fruits, like orange and lemon are acidic, because all fruit becomes alkaline in our body, according to Dr. Herbert Shelton who did research on this matter. If you have mastered the correct way of eating fruit, you have the Secret of Beauty, Longevity, Health, Energy, Happiness and normal weight.

When you need to drink fruit juice drink only fresh fruit juice, NOT the concentrated juice from the cans. Don’t drink juice that has been heated. Don’t eat cooked fruit; you don’t get the nutrients at all. You get only the taste. Cooking destroys all of the vitamins.

Eating a whole fruit is better than drinking the juice. If you should drink the juice, drink it mouthful by mouthful slowly, because you must let it mix with your saliva before swallowing it. You can go on a 3-day fruit-fast to cleanse your body. Eat fruit and drink fruit juice for just 3 days, and you will be surprised when your friends say how radiant you look!

KIWI: Tiny but mighty, and a good source of potassium, magnesium, vitamin E and fibre. Its vitamin C content is twice that of an orange!

AN APPLE a day keeps the doctor away? Although an apple has a low vitamin C content, it has antioxidants and flavonoids which enhances the activity of vitamin C, thereby helping to lower the risk of colon cancer, heart attack and stroke.

STRAWBERRY: Protective Fruit. Strawberries have the highest total antioxidant power among major fruits and protect the body from cancer-causing, blood vessel-clogging free radicals.

EATING 2 – 4 ORANGES a day may help keep colds away, lower cholesterol, prevent and dissolve kidney stones, and reduce the risk of colon cancer.

WATERMELON: Coolest thirst quencher. Composed of 92% water, it is also packed with a giant dose of glutathione, which helps boost our immune system. Also a key source of lycopene, the cancer-fighting oxidant. Also found in watermelon: Vitamin C and Potassium.

GUAVA & PAPAYA: Top awards for vitamin C. They are the clear winners for their high vitamin C content. Guava is also rich in fiber, which helps prevent constipation. Papaya is rich in carotene, good for your eyes.

Drinking Cold water after a meal = Cancer!
Can you believe this? For those who like to drink cold water, this applies to you. It’s nice to have a cold drink after a meal, however, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you’ve just consumed, which slows digestion. Once this ‘sludge’ reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine. Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to cancer. It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.

A serious note about heart attacks.
Women should know that not every heart attack symptom is going to be the left arm hurting. Be aware of intense pain in the jaw. You may never have the first chest pain during the course of a heart attack. Nausea and intense sweating are also common symptoms. Sixty percent of people who have a heart attack while they’re asleep do not wake up. Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep. Be careful, and be aware. The more we know, the better our chance to survive.

A cardiologist said if everyone who gets this mail sends it to 10 people, you can be sure that we’ll save at least one life

It can even be your life”

    I love your blog and I think you and your family are beautiful in every way. That being said please don't be offended by what I am going to say…. Some of the info posted here is false, there is so much bad information floating around in general that medical information needs to verified before people hop on the bandwagon. The part about cold water is especially erroneous. I am a (former) scientist and I assure you all liquids (and solids) quickly reach the same temperature in your stomach. A more detailed explanation can be found here http://www.hoax-slayer.com/cold-water-cancer.html
    For sure people need to drink more water, and if you like it cold then drink up, don't let false info like this scare you! I think Dr. Oz himself would dispel a lot of the info in this post. I know you have no bad intent and stuff like this seems harmless but all it does is add to all the bad info already floating around on the internet and it misguides peoples efforts to be healthier.

    This information is not even from Dr.Oz…. It is essentially a chain mail email that has been around for most of a decade and can be traced back to a man that was a doctor of naturopathy that eventually was arrested for practicing medicine without a license. Someone just decided to put Dr. Oz's name on the newer version of this. I can assure you that Dr. Oz would confirm there is no medical basis for almost anything in this letter. It is nothing more than folklore. It's hurting me reading comments that people are beating themselves up for drinking cold water or eating fruit with their meals. You should be commended for making healthy decisions such as eating fruit and increasing fluids, this information is fictional.

    First, let me say I love reading your blog.

    Many years ago I went to a nutritionist and was given, essentially, a raw food diet. I didn't mind at all since I was, and still am, a vegetarian by choice. (No, not because that baby cow is cute, simply because I do not like meat.) I don't think anyone would disagree about what fresh fruits and vegetables offer us in the way of nutrition and vitamins.

    After struggling for years with the same medical condition you have, nothing helped me more than enhancing my diet with fresh goodies like these. I am also a firm believer in eastern medicine vs. western medicine and have had only an asian doctor for the past 20 years. Again, that is by choice, but it is because they promote healthy, natural ways over prescription medication. I have three children, who collectively, have been prescribed medication 5 times in 17 years. I think that is a pretty good track record and speaks highly about a diet rich in natural vitamins and nutrients.

    Probably the biggest thing that I do still from that nutritionist, btw, is eat melon alone and I stay away from alot of pineapple. Sorry to overtake your blog. I will go back to my corner.
