The health benefits of tropical fruit consumption have been established by many studies. Because tropical fruit is naturally low in fat and calories, consuming it may help reduce the risk of chronic diseases linked to obesity. Evidence from epidemiology, observational studies, and laboratory and animal studies as well as human clinical trials continues to support the role of fruit and its synergistic benefits in health promotion and disease prevention. Learn more about the health benefits of these tropical "super fruits" in this Woodland Health Series booklet by medical writer Barbara Wexler.
