Is fruit inflammatory?

I'm wondering what people have to say about fruit and inflammation. Can the sugar content of fruits cause inflammation to worsen? Or do they actually help control inflammation? And obviously there are different types of fruit. Are some inflammatory while others are not?

On their own merit in small amounts, no they're not inflammatory. Acquisition of carbohydrate by the body requires some potassium, some b vitamins and a tad magnesium. It would be nice if someone did the actual calculations for modern fruit. Also, as whole plants, - as opposed to purified powders and syrups - fruit also defends the sugars with salicylates, ascorbate (vitamin C) and others.

But I doubt there's much to fret over, unless you're making them a large part of the diet. Which would be a mistake since fruits hardly contain more nutrition than needed to take care of their own sugar content. So the only danger I see from fruit is displacing other, more nutritious foods.
