      Ann, I appreciate this article for a few reasons. First, your emphasis was not on apples and bananas (you see things written about them all the time). It's very interesting how much benefit the fruits you mention have. Being diabetic, I already have some issues (nothing horrible, but there nevertheless). I struggle to keep my potassium levels where they should be, but I never knew the benefits of eating pears and peaches could have for me. Thanks for a well-researched and well-written hub
