Many tropical fruits loaded with vitamins

A trip to so-called third world countries of the tropics can be very enlightening in some unexpected ways. Take the people and their health condition for example.

Besides the everyday menu of starches and very little meat, country folks eat lots of fruit instead of candy, pies and other sweets.
