    Healthiest fruit is the one whose attributes are most specific to individual’s particular need at a specific time. For general purposes, many regard pomegranate as a top contender. Now I see claims of aronia or black chokeberries exceeding ORAC values of all other phytonutrients. Neglected aspect fallacies must be guarded against! Astragalus was held in 2009 Nobel awards to be the most powerful plant for human health, actually allowing the body to generate telomerase. What I needed most in fall 2007 was citric acid specifically from the best source, that being fresh lemons. I used that modality to totally solufy all the calcium accretions in my chest arteries, which started hurting after “pec-deck” exercise. I juiced 2 jumbo lemons twice daily in plain H2O on empty stomach. There are many persons who could avoid angioplasty, bypasses just by using citric acid, which is very corrosive towards calcification, to dissolve the problem. Only caution is to drink solution fast and rinse 4X with plain water. Otherwise tooth enamel damage will ensue. Molybdenum can be supplemented to further protect the teeth while unleashing citric acid in the bloodstream, where it can do its ANGELIC work of solufying calcium and holding it in suspension till it can be passed in fluid from the body. Yes, I deprived cardiologist of LARGE sum and obtained far better outcome re cessation of all symptoms.
