Friends and Fellow Survivors,

 

Happy week-end to all.

I just read that apples help ward off 7 or 8 types of cancer.

 

Love and Healing to all!

Not sure I've heard this one, but do remember applies must be ORGANIC!!!  Skins are loaded with pesticides.

 

Happy chewing,

Jan

Apples are great, especially green ones in juice. However, I also have read an agree with Jan: apples MUST be organic.

Yes, recent research shows that the substance in apples that makes them a potent anti-cancer food is quercetin--also found in onions, by the way.

 

However, realize that apples are also a source of sugar, albeit natural fructose--so don't overdo it; I wouldn't have more than one half an apple a day.  Great with almond butter to slow down the sugar absorption; also good in smoothies with kale, by the way.  

 

Research this week also shows that blueberries and grapes together create a potent anti-cancer compound.  But once again, make sure they are organic; grapes are highly polluted otehrwise.  And small quanities--a qusrter cup at a time, no more, in oatmeal or in a salad, perhaps.

 

Best,

Rosey
