Does An Apple A Day Keep The Doctor Away?
We have all heard the expression, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”. Is there some degree of truth to it? Apples are loaded with antioxidants which are very beneficial to our health. Antioxidants guard against cell damage and provide protection against several diseases; diabetes, asthma, and lung cancer. Apples contain more antioxidants than any other fruit. A recent study conducted by Cornell University concludes that by eating lots of fresh fruits and vegetables might be a significant factor in reducing the risk of developing brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s. A single apple contains the same antioxidant properties as 1500 milligrams of vitamin C, and researchers agree that the benefits of fresh fruits and vegetables are better than those available insupplements.
