Well, to say that fruit is worse than a piece of pie for someone, sort of suggests that it's better to just eat the pie; the doc could have compared it to a different fruit instead but didn't...and people do tend to take words at face value and many would just go eat the pie, even if it was only because a doc had stated that pie had less calories in.
I remember one doc telling someone that fruit is good for them, which was interpreted by the patient as "I can eat as much of this fruit as I want" (cherries, grapes by the punnet loads) and they were diabetic; a completely wrong interpretation based on the doc's words.
