An apple a day keeps the doctor away says the BMJ

An apple a day can still keep the doctor away says the British Medical Journal

If every over-50 obeyed the Victorian dictum of eating an apple every day 8,500 deaths from strokes and heart attacks would be avoided according to research from Oxford University published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) published this month.

Apples are a well known source of natural antioxidants and chemical compounds called flavanoids. Both antioxidants and flavanoids are richer in cider apples than dessert of culinary apples and are present in naturally fermented Somerset Cider Vinegar.

The Oxford research concludes that apples have a similar boost to cardiovascular health as drugs like statins (which can cause uncomfortable side effects for some).

Two thirds of us are not eating the recommended five portions of fruit and veg every day and the report estimates that if adults of all ages ate one more portion 11,000 vascular deaths would be avoided.
