The Humble Apple May Ace Cancer

One a Day Keeps Your Risk Away




Apples are among the world’s most healing superfoods, thanks to their abundant fiber and heart-healthy nutrient properties. New research shows that an apple a day may also help keep cancer away.

Two major independent cancer research projects, from Poland and Uruguay, confirm that daily apple consumption can cut the risk of colorectal cancer in half, a unique value among all fruits or vegetables. Other studies documented at GreenMedInfo.com suggest that apples contain components geared to help stop the growth of liver, breast, esophageal, stomach and multi-drug-resistant cancers.

Additional research further associates the fruit with relieving diarrhea in children, soothing bowel inflammation in adults, preventing flu, facilitating weight loss, protecting against gum disease, maintaining brain cells and even slowing the aging process.
