Apples in the daily diet reduce the risk of premature death

Scientists from the University of Western Australia conducted a study in which they analyzed data from 1456 women aged 70 to 85 years. The experiment took 15 years.

Jonathan Hodgson of the University School of Medicine and Pharmacology noted that apples contain significant amounts of dietary fiber and flavonoids that help achieve lower levels of cholesterol and blood pressure, and also contribute to reducing the risk of cancer.

Apples are also a good source of magnesium, potassium, vitamin C and flavonoids, which are concentrated in the skin. Flavonoids help relax the blood vessels and have been associated with a low risk of developing cardiovascular diseases.

Researchers estimated that those who ate one apple each day had a 35% lower risk of premature death than those who were limited to 15 apples a year.
