The Apple of My Heart

By AFM Team – May 1, 2015

According to an article published in JAMA Internal Medicine, eating apples is correlated to taking less prescription medications. The authors of the article compared daily apple eaters with non-daily apple eaters. From the total amount of participants surveyed, 9 percent were apple eaters and 91 percent were not. While a bit skewed, the apple eaters were found to have a higher educational attainment than the non-apple eaters and were less likely to be smokers. There was no statistic showing whether eating an apple a day kept the doctor away, but apple eaters were found to have less of a need for prescription medication.
