Most people hear old wives tales and think that they are just that. Tales that someone made up back in the day to get us to do certain things a certain way.

But there are some tales that have a bit of truth to them and one of these is, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.”Of course this tale is used to get people to eat more fruit. But that doesn’t mean that it’s not true.

Apples are made from many nutritional components that can help reduce the chance of heart disease, stroke, cancer, and many other health problems. While it’s true that increasing your amount of fruit to any level will help with these problems, apples seem to be especially prone to preventing the biggest health concerns that people seem to be most worried about. Protect yourself even further by making sure that you eat the skin of the apple as well as the flesh. Some even eat the seeds.

How about you? When is the last time you ate an apple?
