Apples As Effective As Cholesterol Lowering Drugs

Wise proverb says, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”. It turns out that the adage is true. And it has been proven!

If 17.6 million adults take statins, deaths due to heart attack can be reduced to 9,400 cases. However, consumption of statins may increase the risk of musculoskeletal disorders and diabetes. Meanwhile, if 22 million seniors regularly eat apples, deaths due to heart disease can be reduced to 8,500 cases. That’s why researchers believe that the protection of the health from apple is as effective as the protection provided by statins.

The research team also uses mathematical calculations to quantify the benefits of fruit and vegetable consumption for health. It turns out that one extra serving of fruits and vegetables such as apples may reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke by 12 percent.

The more servings of fruits and vegetables consumed the risk of death due to heart disease becomes lower. Lowering cholesterol by taking certain drugs is potent. However, a balanced diet is much better.
