And because Autism is marked by developmental DELAYS, all kids improve, and sometimes in lurches ... so it is easy to attribute the improvement to whatever treatment ...

Acai berry is supposed to be "uniquely rich in antioxidants." And since it is a rare, Brazilian import, they charge a fortune.

Do cranberries have same amount of anti oxidants? they are being consumed either in fruit form or juice form by cancer patients here.

Yes, cranberries are another source of antioxidants ...

Resveratol is another thing that is very popular -- made from grapes.

Well, for the record I do eat plenty of fruit. But I either choose a very low-carb fruit, like strawberries (YUM!), or I only eat a small portion and take insulin for it 20 minutes ahead of time to avoid a spike. (Really though, strawberries are AWESOME. I have type 1, and I can actually eat several strawberries without insulin and see barely any rise in my BG at all.)

Aside from that, I try and have 100% fruit juice when I treat most of my lows. I like the stuff as well as soda or most appropriate candies, so why not choose the option that has some of the nutrients I now get a little less of in my usual diet?

I have cut out some fruit from my diet ( actually eating them now) like banana's and pulpous fruit but pretty much eat all other fruits and my last a1c was at 5.9%. So i think people are dissing fruit because of the sugar content. For me it is natural sugar so the body should be able to process it easier. I do understand that not everybody can handle fruit.
