Interesting... 

I know that many of the benefits listed for one fruit are also benefits of many others on the list...

 Wow I am a diabetic. I didn't know avocados battles diabetes. Very interesting. Thanks for posting this. I am not on insulin and have controlled my diabetes to diet and exercise. I love fruits. Everyone needs to remember though about all the carbs fruits have. If you eat too many of them they can make you gain weight.

Why?  Certain foods can slow cancer growth and help prevent cancer.  It's not like you can eat something and eliminate cancer after one has it, but foods can help before you get it.  Webmd has a whole article about this subject and specifically mentions broccoli and garlic among others that protect against specific types of cancer.

Because it is bullshit.

A food doesn't combat cancer.   Living a healthy live can help prevent it, but even then there is no guarantee.  So yeah, saying beans combat cancer is jsut bullshit.

Great list!  My DH and I both have PVC's and we try to eat foods rich in potassium such as bananas and potatoes, which are both great for the heart.

 You do not understand enough about how certain chemicals in foods work in the human body.  This stuff has been proven to be affective in the majority of cases (even if by a small percent) or they would not be allowed to state this.  FDA rules require you to prove your claim that your food combats certain things.

Actually, I understand very well.

Beans don't combat cancer.   They just don't.
