  • Nutrition Tip

    Remember the old saying "An apple a day keeps the doctor away?" Well, apples are a good source of soluble and insoluble fiber as well as a wide variety of antioxidants and phytonutrients like phenolics and flavonoids. Research shows that these nutrients found in apples act together to provide strong protection against different types of cancer. In the Nurses' Health Study of more than 77,000 women, daily apple consumption was linked to a 37 percent lower risk of lung cancer after controlling for risk factors such as smoking.
