Fruit…Friend Or Foe?

The health benefits of fruit have been the subject of ongoing debates within the health community for years. After numerous studies, various expert testimony as well as some widespread confusion, many people still continue to challenge the advantages of eating fruit. The main reason is that fruit is relatively high in sugar compared to other whole foods. Take bananas for instance, an average sized banana has about 12 grams of sugar per serving which according to the American Heart Association is just about half of our sugar intake for an entire day.
