Fruit only diets and your teeth

Fruit only diets and your teeth

A recent article in the New York Post, features a young couple who have embarked on a fruit only diet and haven't brushed their teeth for two years, claiming that the fibre from the fruit cleans them. Before you try this at home, let's look at the facts when it comes to the health of your teeth. Fruit is high in acid and fructose - both of which can soften and destroy tooth enamel. Not brushing your teeth allows bacteria to grow and can damage and decay your teeth. While eating only fruit will undoubtedly shed excess weight, a diet based on fruit alone lacks major nutrients such as protein, vital minerals, fats and amino acids. The safest diets are those that have been scientifically researched and are not purely anecdotal.
