    It is the antioxidants and the vitamins that help your heart. Anything like an antioxidant flushes free radicals from your body. It is that bad residue that builds up that increases heart problems and that helps it.

    Alzheimer's Prevention
    A study on mice at Cornell University found that the quercetin in apples may protect brain cells from the kind of free radical damage that may lead to Alzheimer's disease.

    Lower Cholesterol
    The pectin in apples lowers LDL ("bad") cholesterol. People who eat two apples per day may lower their cholesterol by as much as 16 percent.

    Lung Cancer Prevention

    According to a study of 10,000 people, those who ate the most apples had a 50 percent lower risk of developing lung cancer. Researchers believe this is due to the high levels of the flavonoids quercetin and naringin in apples.

    Breast Cancer Prevention
    A Cornell University study found that rats who ate one apple per day reduced their risk of breast cancer by 17 percent. Rats fed three apples per day reduced their risk by 39 percent and those fed six apples per day reduced their risk by 44 percent.

    Colon Cancer Prevention
    One study found that rats fed an extract from apple skins had a 43 percent lower risk of colon cancer. Other research shows that the pectin in apples reduces the risk of colon cancer and helps maintain a healthy digestive tract.

    Liver Cancer Prevention
    Research found that rats fed an extract from apple skins had a 57 percent lower risk of liver cancer.

    Diabetes Management
    The pectin in apples supplies galacturonic acid to the body which lowers the body's need for insulin and may help in the management of diabetes.

    Weight Loss
    A Brazilian study found that women who ate three apples or pears per day lost more weight while dieting than women who did not eat fruit while dieting.

    Hi Abel,
    Great benefits of apples. Apples are great for health and we must eat apples daily to improve health.
    Apples reduce tooth decay by lowering the levels of bacteria in mouth and are used to treat diarrhea and constipation. Apples detoxify your liver also.
