An Apple A Day Does Keep the Doctor Away

Grandma was right - eating apples helps your health.

Cornell researchers fed rats a substance known to cause breast cancer and apple extracts. When rats were fed the equivalent of one apple per day, their cancer rates dropped by 17 percent. When the rodents received the equivalent of three apples per day, their cancer rates fell by 39 percent. And when they ate the equivalent of six apples per day, their cancer rates declined by 44 percent. The number of tumors dropped by as much as to 61 percent in the study.

Researchers say apples contain a potent combination of cancer-fighting phenolics and flavonoids. So, think about an apple the next time you crave a snack!
