Dr Oz and the best time to eat fruits – Sharing an interesting email

DR. OZ on eating  fruit 

This is truly  interesting.
I thought it was going to be  funny.
But there are some  very interesting healthy facts  here.

Read on.  

EATING  FRUIT  This  is informative!  
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 fiber. 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!
