A new study in the journal Stroke asks if “an apple a day keeps stroke away?” The study authors say yes. It turns out that the old 1904 apple industry marketing campaign to rebrand apples as healthful may be more true than J.T. Stinson knew when he coined the now famous adage “an apple a day keeps the doctor away.” The consumption of apples (as well as pears) appears to lower your risk of stroke more than any other fruit and vegetable, leading the editorial writer to suggest that perhaps there will finally be an “apple a day” clinical trial.

I guess Eve knew was on to something when she grabbed that apple.
