A recent scientific study conducted by leading health and nutrition experts at England's prestigious Oxford University has led to the conclusion that eating one apple per day is an extremely effective strategy for preventing deaths from stroke and heart attack.
According to the freshly published results of the study, apples are naturally full of statins. Statins are natural compounds which help to prevent stress to the body which, if left unchecked, can result in heart attacks, strokes, and other potentially fatal ailments.
The researchers at Oxford University maintain that just over 8,5000 deaths per year are completely unnecessary, and could be prevented if people who are over the age of 50 would consume one apple per day.
This new study confirms previous research which indicated that apples are a naturally rich source of soluble fiber. It is this material which drastically slows the build-up of plaque and cholesterol in the arteries.
Apples are also a verified source of antioxodiants and flavanoids which are also highly beneficial to the human immune system. So it seems that an apple a day really will keep the doctor away.
