Bexley Farmers Market: September 4
Apple season is here, and we're not mad about it!
Apple season has arrived! And as they say, "An apple a day, keeps the doctor away."
But why do they say that?
Researchers from Cornell's Food Science and Toxicology Department in Ithaca, N.Y. suggest that, "...a combination of plant chemicals, collectively known as phytochemicals, found mainly in the skin of apples, provide the bulk of the fruit's anticancer and antioxidant properties. The cooperative activity of these phytochemicals, they argue, has health benefits that are superior to those found in single compounds like vitamin C, vitamin E, and beta-carotene, which have been widely studied for their antioxidant activities."
