“An Apple a day keeps the Doctor away”, we have all been hearing this since our childhood.
‘A’ for Apple is the first word that every child starts their education with.
It won’t be an exaggeration if I say that the humble Apple becomes a part of our life from our very first breath!!
The cause behind the gravitational theory by Newton was an Apple.
And not to forget that ONE BIG APPLE for which the whole world is Crazy ;)
As one of the most cultivated and consumed fruits in the world, Apples are continuously being praised as a "miracle food" and very rightly fall under the category of top healthy foods. Apples are extremely rich in important antioxidants, flavonoids, and dietary fiber. The phytonutrients and antioxidants in apples may help reduce the risk of developing cancer, hypertension, diabetes and heart diseases.
Apple is one fruit which is commonly available throughout the World.
