fruit skins carry germs and is no mere intended for human sustenance than potato skins melon rinds or pea pods Ihe bloom of the peach is a luxuriant growth of microbes that of the grape only less so and when these are taken into the stomach they have more favorable conditions for their lively and rapid development which causes decay of fruit before it is possible to digest ifc This is the reason many peo ple think they cannot eat raw fruit If theyweuld in all cases discard the skin they would derive only good from the fruit itself Nature provides the skin for the protection of the fruit from tbe multitude of germs which are ever ready to attack it asis evidenced when the skin is bruised or broken in auy way The microbes at once begin their work of decay and the fruit is unfit for food
