Vitamins and minerals help to keep bones and tissue strong, form red blood cells and maintain the central nervous system. Your body simply cannot function without these vitamins and minerals. Serious conditions such as rickets and scurvy develop due to lack of these nutrients.
Fruits and vegetables are bountiful sources of antioxidants. Antioxidants are substances that protect cells from free radicals, molecules that can damage the body and lead to serious problems. Without proper fruit and vegetable consumption, you may be a greater risk for conditions like heart disease and cancer.
Fiber is a very important nutrient which, among other things, helps control bowel movements. Fiber is found in fruits and vegetables, and a lack of it can cause constipation and digestive problems, as well as raise cholesterol levels.
Fruits and vegetables are a healthier alternative to foods high in fat and calories, because they provide the nutrients without providing excess calories. Avoiding fruits and vegetables in replace of fattier foods can cause weight gain as well as other adverse health conditions.
An adult should be eating about 2 cups of fruits per day and at least 2 cups of vegetables.

It's due to a lack of hydroline2005-01-21 15:01:30 by PoopyDoopyDont
Your body normally produces a chemical called mesochordatome, which requires hydroline. When your body is not used to the excessive exercise it consumes more hydroline and it therefore exausts quicker. Your nails are a deposit of nutrients and when the mesochordatome lacks hydroline the odor may change. try increasing fruits in your diet- especially citrus fruits.
ps sorry you have to get a bunch of immature response from idiots who lack self awareness and knowledge of their body.
This diet's success relies on lack of pollutants2011-02-23 11:53:05 by OneSoul
... I think.
I suspect that our bodies create fat to have a safe place to store dangerous toxins away from our vital organs.
In these modern times, we have no choice but to breathe polluted air.
Our water has been processed away from it's natural state.
Our soil has been depleted of nutrients, sapping it's ability to infuse our produce with the life sustaining and healing properties our bodies require. And most of our fruits and vegetables have been contaminated with chemical sprays and genetically redesigned to the point of losing reproductive abilities
Fruit and sugar should be used sparingly2008-12-06 18:44:52 by wenmister13502
>Fruit and sugars should be very limited though as they can cause diabetes easily in ferrets
You mean insulinomas, which is the opposite of being a diabete.
Ferrets are obligate carnivores, which means they require a diet that's very high in meat-based protein and fat. Because they lack a cecum, ferrets cannot digest plant protein, so fruits and veggies is a no no - no matter how much they beg.
Sugary snacks, such as raisins, may cause obesity, tooth decay, and aggravation of hypoglycemia caused by insulinomas. High carbohydrate treats, such as cookies, cereal and bread may lead to diseases of the pancreas.
I hope this helps.
