Amongst the fruits available in the market, one that i'm most fond of are apples. They really bring great health benefit especially for strengthening our immune system. Would you believe that regular consumption of apples really reduces the risk of cancer (especially colon and lung cancer). Regular intake is also said to prevent heart disease and stroke. Apples are rich in vitamins C and A, and rich in fiber! I have searched in the internet and i found site about "3-apple-a-day Plan". Its like a diet composed of more apples intake and testimonies really say that apples helped in weight loss, coupled with regular exercise. Hmm, maybe i should try this.. and you can too! So how fond are you with eating apples? Do you believe in the saying "An apple a day keeps the doctor away"?

Hi there. Apples dont last in our house, they are munch on as soon as we get them. Our children eat alot of apples and so do we. We also use our apples for cooking, as we cook alot of apple crumble or apple pie, or simply stew them with a little cinnamon and a little sugar and freeze them in containers for use as we need them...

I wholeheartedly agree with you with all the informations you shared with us about the apples. We have the green and red California apples available in our place. I usually buy both types because I believe that they give lots of health benefits. It is even recommended by health experts that you have to eat the skin of the apples because you find additional nutrients underneath them, provided you have to wash them thoroughly. The fibers in these fleshy fruits help reduce cholesterol as well as weight. I am a hypertensive person and my doctor recommended me to eat apple once a day.

I love all kinds of apples. We used to have an apple tree in our yard when I was growing up and I used to go out and pick the green ones and eat them. I like red apples too. I am not sure if I believe that an apple a day keeps the doctor away though. I like to eat raw apples or cooked ones and I also like apple pie.

yeah recently my doctor adviced me to reduced weight and a friend of mine adviced me to take apple a day and surely did my cholesterol went down and SGTP and SGOT went down as well. Even my blood glucose went down normal although I do not know if it affected my blood glucose too. But I see the real benefits of this fruit. It just so happens that this fruit is not readily available in my place that is why it is price a little bit high.

I love apples...all kinds of apples...delicious, mcintosh, gala, green, golden delicious...yummy...luv those apples. It may sound a little strange but I not only like apples by themselves...I also like apples and peanut butter, especially the crunchy kind. Not for everyone I admit...but it sure works for me. In fact your topic has made me hungry...I am going to sign off soon and have...you bet...an apple and peanut butter! And yes I do believe and apple a day keeps the doctor away...it has all kinds of essential vitamins and minerals...but be sure and wash them first...got to get rid of the pesticides...they are definitely NOT health-promoting!
