“An Apple a Day Keeps the Doctor Away”
Tallmadge: I would change that to “Five fruits and vegetables a day keep the doctor away.” Apples are great for you, but you want a
variety of produce in your diet. People who eat a lot of fruits and vegetables have significantly reduced rates of cancer,
heart disease, diabetes, and gastrointestinal disorders.
Blatner: I kind of want to say yes to this one. Apples are such a nutritious snack and such a portable, easy way to get a serving of fruit into your daily diet. I think it’s worth marketing them that way.
Gans: If only it were that simple! Apples are wonderful, nutrient-rich foods, but one piece of fruit a day won’t do it. It’s the whole package of healthy eating and exercise that helps keep the doctor away.
