AN APPLE A DAY




AN APPLE A DAY
KEEPS THE DOCTOR AWAY



It's one of the most recognizable
expressions, but besides the fact
that it rhymes, which makes it fun
to say and easy to recall, does
it really have any value?
Could the common apple honestly
help a person to maintain perfect health?




The first printed mention of this
saying can be found in
the February 1866 issue of the
publication "Notes and Queries."
The publication printed the proverb
like this: "Eat an apple on going to bed,
and you'll keep the doctor from
earning his bread."




Nearly 150 years later, variations
of this adage are still quoted.
It's unlikely that the saying
would have maintained such
popularity if there wasn't some
truth to it, right? But does eating
an apple every day mean
you'll never get sick?
And is an apple really healthier
than other fruits?



If in addition to apples, you’ll fill
your shopping cart with citrus fruits,
tropical treats like mangos,
and a variety of berries, then
a varied selection of fruits each day
is truly the best way
to keep the doctor away.
