  • ​Pears are a great choice if the tartness of tropical fruit hurts your mouth. They have a mild taste and are considered to be one of the easiest fruits to digest. As a bonus, the cooling effect of this dessert can help soothe a tender mouth and throat after surgery.
  • Research suggests that pears may help prevent cancer. The fibre found in pears has been shown to bind to bile acids in the intestines, which may reduce risk of colon and stomach cancers. In a study following half a million people ages 50 and older over 5 years, eating pears was associated with a lower risk of developing squamous cell esophageal cancer.
