“Pears are naturally high in vitamins C and K, as well as nutrients such as copper—all of which act as antioxidants to protect our cells from damage from free radicals. Pears are generally considered “safe” and are often one of the first fruits given to infants because they are considered to be a hypoallergenic fruit.”
