Whilst Oranges may typically contain more calories than apples, they are also high in acid. Eating oranges in excess can contribute to heartburn and other problems with the ingestion of food too high in acid.

Oranges also contain Vitamin C which when eating in excess, say by a extremely hungry person, who's only source of joy is eating oranges, can lead to diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, heartburn, bloating or cramps, headaches, insomnia, and kidney stones.

Whilst apples contain very low levels of acid and no Vitamin C whatsoever. If i were to eat 10000000 apples, because i was very hungry, i would not get any of these problems i have just mentioned, but if i ate the same amount of oranges, the acidity would have killed me a long time before i finish.

Apples contain very low contents of essential nutrients, so there is less of a health risk, with mass consumption

And i dont even know why i took this ridiculous debate, but i will try my best :)

Well, there are no people who are so hungry and they eat oranges, even if they love! Oranges can't help a lot.

Although oranges have more calories than apples, the additional energy they provide in the diet is balanced by the additional nutrient benefits. Oranges provide more vitamins, minerals and fiber compared with apples, while apples have more sugar than oranges, which is bad for or teeth and liver. So oranges are a better choice.

People eat different kinds of food depend on their health conditions. People won't eat too much a day and if they have any diseases, they avoid eating some kind of food/fruit. Apples are good because of its amount of calorie, but for e.g., a person eats about 1 or half an apple and orange, the nutrients in oranges are higher than apples, so although apples contain very low contents of essential nutrients, so there is less of a health risk, they can't benefit your health.

And I don't know how ridiculous is this debate, hope you will explain to me :)

I cancelled the "coconut water is healthier than sport drink" and this debate should be better.
