because fruits have fructose, which is a form of sugar.

"The delusion that fructose is an acceptable form of sugar is quite prevalent in many nutritional circles. These studies are important contributions to the scientific literature that confirm that it is not. Nearly all simple sugars are metabolized quickly and disrupt insulin levels, which contributes to most chronic illness. So don't be fooled--avoid fructose just like you would table sugar as they both cause similar problems.

This doesn't mean that you should avoid fruit, however. Eating small amounts of whole fruit will NOT provide tremendous amounts of fructose and should not be a problem for most people, unless diabetes or obesity is an issue. However, fruit juices, sodas and other beverages sweetened with fructose should be avoided.

Fructose is not something that should be in your diet. Yet, as the article states, high-fructose corn syrup is one of the most commonly used sweeteners.

One of the simplest and most important things you can do to limit fructose in your diet is eliminate soda and fruit juices as they have about eight teaspoons of fructose per serving."

If you're trying to get rid of candidia then limiting your fruit is a good idea.
