    Default Why The Apple Is One Of The World's Most Healing Superfoods

    This commonly overlooked superfood protects the body from nuclear fallout, kills a wide range of cancers, and keeps the arteries unclogged -- to name but a few, experimentally confirmed ways in which the apple awakens your inner physician.


    An apple a day keeps the doctor away.

    This age old saying has never rang with greater promise and authority than it does today. As in the modern era, doctors bring with them a battery of tests, drugs, and interventions, all of which carry unintended, adverse health risks that often outweigh their purported benefits, and are therefore best avoided whenever possible.

    Also, apples are also far cheaper than doctors, and in the worst case scenario of coerced or mandatory treatment can be thrown as a non-deadly (downright nutritious) form of self-defense.

    While some might take this opening aphorism as mere folk medicine fantasy, the reality is that the medicinal properties of apple are well-documented within the biomedical literature.

    The apple is definitely a superfood!! I was happy to see the article recommend "organic" apples, as the conventionally grown kind are pesticide laden. For the third year in a row, the Environmental Working Group has ranked the apple at the "top" of its Dirty Dozen list of fruits and vegetables with the most pesticides. So, eat organic to avoid the pesticides and reap the superfood benefits. Fuji and red delicious apples are touted as having the highest levels of antioxidants. I eat mostly fuji or gala, but I don't know how gala apples stack up nutritionally in comparison to the other varieties.

    Isn't it ironic that the apple originally was troubled by no pests? As we become increasingly global, all sorts of critters are introduced — often with no natural enemies here.

    Organic apples are one of the few imported foods that we regularly eat, usually sharing one each evening. Fuji apples are our favorites, as well.
