An Apple a Day!0
By - Posted 4th July, 2015 at 9:53 pm

Almost everyone grew up hearing the phrase,”An apple a day keeps the doctor/ dentist away!” Parents scolding and taunting you about not eating healthy enough, or dentists filling too many cavities. But have you ever thought about whether it’s really true or not?

Let’s start off with what this means to fully understand what they are talking about. Everyone knows apples are very healthy for you. This quote is simply implying that keeping healthy and being a healthy person can keep you from getting sick and having to go to the doctor often. Eating healthy and being an healthy individual can lower the risk of certain diseases. These can include: Diabetes type 2, heart disease, strokes, and many more. 

Now that you know what this means, we can dig a bit deeper trying to prove the quote right. Apples are filled with many vitamins, nutrients, and minerals such as: Vitamin C, Vitamin B-6, Vitamin A, Iron, Magnesium, Calcium, and a soluble fibre called Pectin. Pectin promotes your digestive system. All these vitamins can help promote a healthy body. According to researchers at the University Of California, apples have also been proven to prevent tumours. 

Another way apples can help is, just by eating one apple, it can help lower your cholesterol by 8-11%. By eating two apples, it can lower it to up to 16%. Talk about healthy eating!

Eating apples also work as a toothbrush to your teeth. Apples can clean your teeth and kill off the bacteria on your teeth. This also reduces the risk of tooth decay. Not only are apples benefiting you, but they are also benefiting your teeth by keeping them squeaky clean!

Working against this claim, even though this quote is pretty reliable in some cases, there are also some false facts to it. Apples are not the only fruits that have these benefits. Many other fruits like blueberries, strawberries, cranberries, etc., are proven to have the most of the same benefits as apples.

Even though all of these vitamins and nutrients promote a healthy body and prevent some diseases, it doesn’t work for everything. Some diseases cannot be prevented. Instead of them being caused by an unhealthy body, some are caused by your family history and what you inherit from them. This is called a genetic disorder. Some of these can be prevented, but they just increase the probability of you getting that disease.

Just eating apples alone can’t keep anyone healthy. You have to still maintain a healthy diet, continue to exercise, and consume the right amount of servings of groups in the food pyramid. 

Another important thing to remember is that a lot of these vitamins and nutrients come from the skin or peel of the fruit. So for example, if you eat apple sauce, peeled apple slices, or apple juice, you might not get the same effect as you would eating an actual apple. 

Apples are a great low-calorie, healthy snack rich with lots of things your body needs. Remember, apples don’t just magically cure diseases that you might get or fully prevent them. And that only eating apples in your diet aren’t going to help you. You need to get other nutrients and food with the apples. 

So, could this saying be true? I would say yes. It could be true in many circumstances and cases.
What do you think about this saying? Are you going to start eating apples more now that you know more about this? Tell us in the comments below!
