Apples are by far the most popular fruit and they have been known to be good for you for centuries as the old saying 'An apple a day keeps the doctor away' shows.
BriarMarie

Con

I love apples!!!!
However a con is they contain a high amount of Sugar
Debate Round No. 1
BobJohnsonisawesome

Pro

Apples, whilst containing sugar, also contain many beneficial vitamins and minerals that are good for the body. Sugar is also needed in a healthy diet, as the body needs to turn it into glucose to feed cells.
BriarMarie

Con

Yes, however too much sugar is not good for you.
Debate Round No. 2
BobJohnsonisawesome

Pro

Apples contain 18.9g of sugar (according to http://caloriecount.about.com...) and therecommended sugar intake or an adult is 90g (according to http://www.mydailyintake.net...), so Apples, unless eaten in excess are healthy.
BriarMarie

Con

Apples are not good for people with allergies of apples
Debate Round No. 3
BobJohnsonisawesome

Pro

Allergies to apples don't affect everybody, and probably only affect a small amount of the global population. For the people that can eat them, they are perfectly healthy.
BriarMarie

Con

You have no proof they are perfectly healthy

Pro

By 'perfectly healthy', I am not saying that apples are perfect, as everything has its faults. I am using perfect as a saying, like when you say something is perfectly fine, when there might be something wrong, even a tiny thing.
BriarMarie

Con

Then I find myself correct therefore... I rest my case
