“Woman Eating an Apple” by Fernando Botero

Health Benefits of Eating Apples

A 2010 Iowa Women’s Health Study tracking 34,000 plus women for almost 20 years reported that apples were associated with a lower risk of death from coronary heart disease and cardiovascular disease. Also, Finnish researchers reviewing almost 30 years of data from nearly 10,000 study participants concluded that apple eaters had a lower risk of stroke than non-apple eaters.

Apples are known to prevent LDL cholesterol from oxidizing while inhibiting inflammation. Apple’s soluble fiber also reduces cholesterol levels.

French researchers found that a flavonoid called phloridzin — only available in apples — may help fight osteoporosis in post-menopausal women. Apples are also extremely high in polyphenols (a very powerful antioxidant).

Cornell University studies from 2009 detailed apples role in helping to keep breast cancer at bay. In human terms, eating one apple a day may reduce mammary cancer by 50 percent. Eating the equivalent of six apples a day reduced breast cancer by 75 percent.

Apples are also associated with significantly lower risks of other cancers including lung and colon cancer.

Conclusion: Eat lots of apples!
