This article does not change my one apple/day in my diet. Do you know that a 70% of our immunity is being manufactured in digestive organs to fight against cancer? I am taking one banana, one apple, yogurt drinks, vegetable juice and oatmeal for breakfast.

The study lacks information on other foods people ate and it isn’t rigorous enough to determine whether people who choose to eat apples are healthier or unhealthier than those who don’t.

In other words the study was a waste of time, and I just wasted a bit more time reading about it.

Pass me an apple.

"The proverb is thought to have originated in Wales in the 1800s." Those weren't the same apples that are eaten in North America now. They didn't have the chemical fertilizers, herbicides, insecticides, and preservatives used today. Not to mention the GMO apples that have just been approved for consumption in the USA and Canada. The not so good news is that people eating today's apples aren't any sicker than people who don't eat them, probably because all the food is just as unhealthy!
