30 Bananas a Day!

I have found this study http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2234537/
Inside this is written:

"A high intake of naturally occurring fructose also increased the risk of developing gout; consuming two or more glasses of fruit juice each day increased the risk by 81% (1.81, 1.12 to 2.93) and eating an apple or orange a day increased the risk by 64% (1.64, 1.05 to 2.56)."

Of course, if this is true, it is in a context of a high fat diet (the most common), as always, there isn't any detail about de diet used in the studies.

But I hard a very difficult time thinking that AN apple or orange can increase the risk less than an extra piece of meat.

What do you think?

On the other hand, down in the study it is this:

"This leads to an interesting paradox that on the one hand, fruit and fruit juices may increase serum urate—which in some studies seems to be an independent risk factor of cardiovascular disease—while on the other hand, increased fruit and vegetable intake is generally thought to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease."

it is thought! lol, and the china study?

I think so, but I consider if it is true that scientist measured in those people that correlation why it could have been the reason, I think the most probably is the fat. Or maybe even they took sugary drinks anyway, lol, because ONE apple, It is totally absurd because I know people on a standard diet, with quite fat, drinking 500-1000 ml of orange juice daily and they have another problems, but not gout at all.

An apple a day sends you to the ER every day. perfect.
