The inflammatory properties of fructose can be put to good use in fighting infection and trauma from surgery. That's what inflammation is for. Last week I helped heal my first cold in 18 months since going primal by eating more fructose, mostly in the form of apples and honey.
Also, a couple of weeks prior to that I helped my elderly pet bunny make a remarkable recovery from an eye infection by feeding him copious amounts of dried apricots. The vet was amazed at his recovery.
