Green Apple 1

Green Apple 1

Ahhh .... the apple. What could be more simple in life. They're delicious, easily accessible and easy on the budget.

They have seductive properties as demonstrated with the temptation of Adam. The larynx in the human throat has been called Adam's apple because of a notion that it was caused by the forbidden fruit sticking in the throat of Adam.

Apples are iconic in the scholastic fields. Who doesn't recall the symbol of education featuring a yellow ruler and a red apple sitting proudly atop a school book.

An old proverb attests to the health benefits of the fruit: "An apple a day keeps the doctor away." Research suggests that apples may reduce the risk of colon cancer, prostate cancer and lung cancer. Like many fruits, apples contain Vitamin C as well as a host of other antioxidant compounds, which may reduce the risk of cancer by preventing DNA damage. The fiber content may thus reduce the risk of colon cancer. They may also help with heart disease, weight loss and controlling cholesterol.

Oh ... and they're delicious.

Eat smart. For what is more alluring and healthy than eating an Apple.
