10 Reasons to eat an Apple a day - Eat Right Shape, Sept, 2002 by Ramin Ganeshram 1. A medium apple has just 60-100 calories, virtually no fat and no sodium. 2. Its 5 grams of fiber and 20 grams of carbs make it a filling snack. 3. Apples' fiber, pectin, antioxidants and other compounds can lower bad (LDL) cholesterol and raise good (HDL) cholesterol. 4. The flavonoids and other phytochemicals in apples help protect against lung and colon cancer. 5. Apples contain boron, a mineral that helps maintain bone density and protect against heart disease. 6. The tannins prevent tooth decay, gum disease and urinary-tract infections. 7. Eating an apple a day (with skin) can guard against stroke. 8. The vitamins and antioxidants in apples may help prevent age-related vision loss. 9. The quercetin (a flavonoid) may fight cancer better than vitamin C does. 10. Apples are a good source of folic acid, a B vitamin that helps prevent serious birth defects as well as heart disease. Do you eat an apple every day? What's your favorite fruit?
