How Apples Can Help Your Health
Stave off Alzheimer's disease. Apples contain quercetin, a powerful antioxidant that protects brain cells from degeneration in rats-and might do the same in humans. Be sure to eat the skin, says Cornell University researcher Chang Lee, since it's especially rich in disease-fighting compounds.

Protect against colon cancer. When the natural fiber in apples ferments in the colon, it produces chemicals that help fight the formation of cancer cells, according to new research from Germany.

Prevent high blood pressure. Adults who eat apples are 37 percent less likely to have hypertension, according to a recent food database analysis.
