Raw fruits, like apples, bananas, apricots, cherries, peaches and pears, offer minerals—and they are needed by the body for good health. Apples, eaten as nature grew them, are beneficial to everyone. But if you bake them you gain little.
Apple juice and pineapple juice are oil cutting, and arthritics should abstain from these juices. “An apple a day” is a time-honoured proverb . . . but do not drink, bake or cook it.
(With baked and cooked apples there is the chance—as with cooked vegetables—of destroying the vitamins in your food.) You may certainly eat all the apples you desire.

Drinking pineapple juice should be curbed. But arthritics may eat pineapple slices now and then without too much harm. As for the pear, because of the sugar content even in the raw fruit, it is best that you limit your consumption of pears.
If you enjoy prunes, they may be had raw or stewed. Chew them well. Do not drink prune juice; its sugar goes after oil.
Bananas have only fat-producing oils. If you don’t have too much excess poundage, now … if you’re not worried about your waistline … go ahead and enjoy bananas. They won’t affect your arthritis.
