0 Health Benefit of the Week: Apples!

An idea spurred by one of my friends Jimmy, I decided to start a weekly post about a variety of foods, and their health benefits. So I'd like to start with the mythical fruit that's supposed to keep you from ever needing to enter a doctor's office: the Apple.
No, not that Apple...

  • Stronger bones: Apples contain chemicals and elements such as Boron, which are proven to increase bone density.
  • Helps prevent asthma
  • Helps prevent heart disease: Apples have a chemical that lowers "bad" cholesterol, which helps your heart and other body functions work better.
  • Helps prevent lung, colon, liver, and breast cancer
  • Helps you lose weight
  • Good source of vitamins and antioxidants
  • Recent research shows links between eating apples and the prevention of Alzheimer's.

Hope this is a useful tidbit of information! Please let me know if you think this is a good idea, or any other food's you'd like to see various health benefits of. Happy Thursday!
