Yes it is true. Apple is a healthy fruit (if consumed in limit). An Apple a day keeps the doctor away. But then good apples are quite expensive and one cannot have it like bananas. Therefore I would like to add: an apple a day keeps your money away.

Well apples are very good for you but I think oranges would have more Vitamin C. However, to keep the doctor away forever I'd say 'A clove of garlic a day keeps the doctor away'. Garlic is the ultimate immunity booster and whenever I feel myself getting sick I eat heaps of garlic and it never fails to fix me up!

It very well may be. I got an email today that said that eating an apple a day can really help diabetics keep their sugar levels down.

not it isn't true, but it is tasty and better than a lot of other snacks you could be eating.

Well the proverb is 'An apple a day keeps the Doctor away'. The proverb is so true because an apple contains lots of vitamins and minerals which help the body to improve the immune system...
