am not sure if an apple a day will keep the doctor away, but I do know I love them. As odd as this is going to sound, I will not eat Apple Pie I have never liked it at all. For me I think it is a texture thing-However I love apples that are cooked soft in foods, so who knows.

A little info on Apples

Apples are in the Rose family (Rosaceae) and is one of the most widely cultivated tree fruits that are used by humans. The Apple tree originated in Western Asia, and there are more than 7,500 known cultivars of apples. At least 55 million tons of apples were grown worldwide in 2005 with a value of about $10 Billion Dollars. The USA is the second leading producer of apples with more than 7.5% of world production; whereas China produces about 35%

Research has suggested that apples may reduce the risk of many different kinds of cancers. They contain a small amount of Vitamin C but are rich in antioxidant compounds. Some studies have shown that apples may also help with heart disease. They do not have any cholesterol; they have fiber which reduces cholesterol by preventing reabsorption and are bulky for their caloric content.
