has anyone else heard that fruits that are picked when not ripe (ie avacodos, bananas) deplete your body of nutrients when eaten? i don't know too much about why this would be. something about the fruit not getting the nutrition from the tree... or something?? i also heard even organic are sprayed to delay how quickly they ripen after being picked. anyone else heard this? :eek:

Okay, its not true. Perhaps they have less nutrients than tree ripened fruits, which are always best, but that they deplete your body of nutrients. Your right to be skeptical. I don't believe it either.
Consider the source. Where did you hear or read these things?

With all of the avocados I eat this can't be true :P

I do not believe that distilled water leeches minerals from the body. It is true that it does not provide the minerals that are in other types of water, but many of them are inorganic and harmful. Get your minerals from food, not water.

Avocadoes do not ripen on the tree. They have to be picked to ripen, so this can not be true. It does not make any sense.

One thing we know for sure.Eating ripe fruit is better for you.Thus I dont eat avocados,bananas, and other produce before ripe.Green bell peppers are unripe red peppers so I dont eat them. They simply arent the best nutrition.Depletion..who knows.

Avocado growers can store avocados for month on the tree. They will NEVER ripen there!

I've read in numerous books from trusted sources (like Paul Pitchford) that fruit is acidic unless it is ripened on the tree, which it never is unless you go to a farm, so eating fruit from the store is acidic and we are trying to eat alkaline food here, but maybe all the greens balance it out?
