Point 1)

>>i'm aware of antinutrients in all plant parts - clearly there are less in fruits than in veggies (botanical definition), which was my point.

Do you have any good evidence that these higher amounts in vegetables are harmful in anyway? Do you have any evidence that the ones that do exist in fruits are not harmful in anyway? Do you have any evidence that supports this "cut off" level that you seem to be making that although they both have anti-nutrients and toxins in them, that somehow the ones in vegetables are worse than they ones in fruits and somehow the ones in fruit are safe?


Point 2)

>>>taking the usda figures at truth will cause one to draw invalid conclusions about what diet one should eat.

Please, let us know what criteria you use to base your dietary choices on and why and what leads you to have "faith/belief" in those choices as being ideal an/or optimal for humans. Tell us what you eat in a typical day and why.

Thanks
Jeff
