An apple a day

AN apple a day may not just help keep the doctor away, but could also prevent people from having a heart attack.

Researchers say healthy over-50’s who added a daily apple to their diet could benefit as much as those who started taking a tablet. They believe the health benefits are similar to giving statins to everyone over 50 who is not already taking cholesterol-lowering drugs.

Researchers said people should not replace prescribed statins with apples but could benefit by eating more fruit.
