Consider this : we're eating less fruit as a society than ever before, and more protein and fat. Life expectancy and fruit consumption are dropping at the same time. That is not a coincidence.

Longevity is a popular term right now. Everybody wants to know the secret to living longer with good vision, vitality and vigour. Yet so many are blinded by an anti-sugar mentality that they cannot see the truth. Out of all the limited foods we have left on the planet Earth, there is only one food group that has the ability and affinity to grant us longer healthy life. You have probably guessed what it is by now : fruit.

  Alzheimer's disease, dementia, memory loss, and neurological diseases such as Parkinson's and ALS* can all be prevented by eating fruit regularly. * ALS, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. A-myo-trophic comes from the Greek language. "A" means no. "Myo" refers to muscle, and "Trophic" means nourishment – "No muscle nourishment."

That is because not only does fruit prevent these diseases, fruit prevents oxidation --- which is the process that ages us. It is the same process that makes the flesh of a pound of chopped meat turn brown after prolonged exposure to oxygen, just like our muscles break down from aging and oxidation. Essentially, we oxidize a little more every day --- unless we take action against it. The best way to do that is to eat food rich in antioxidants, which you will find most plentiful, by a wide margin, in fruit. Antioxidants from fruit can even reverse aging.

  The most powerful fruit on the planet Earth is the wild bluberry. Science has not yet fully tapped into the healing , adaptogenic properties that wild blueberries possess. They're the most antioxidant-rich food available. They can prevent and reverse disease. They are the most powerful brain food in existence.

You can find wild blueberries in the frozen fruit case at your local grocery store. And do not confuse wild blueberries with their cultivated cousins. While cultivated (highbush) blueberries are a nutritious food, they are not the superfood that wild (lowbush) blueberries are. Every single wild blueberry contains thousands of years of survival information. Each one you consume allows this wisdom into your body, helping you adapt in today's changing times.

  So if you want to look and feel younger and live longer, incorporate wild blueberries -- as well as grapes, plums, oranges, and the like --- into your daily diet.

  We only have so many meals to eat in a lifetime. For the average person with an average lifespan (which is shorter that it used to be), that is roughly 80,000 meals. Since fruit is becoming less popular, it may account for about 10,000 of those meals --- 15,000 if you are fortunate. Unless vegetables make up most of the difference, that is a lot of missed opportunity for nutrition.

 If it is well-being and longevity you are after, you want every meal to count for something. One of the best ways to do that it to eat more fruit --- and not to get sucked into the anti-sugar game.

Fruit is the true fountain of youth.
