Apples to Apples

While scanning the news today, I found two interesting but correlating articles that make apples quite appealing. So if you haven’t scheduled in an apple picking date, don’t wait. It’s time to stock up on your juice and apples, especially with these types of reports churning in the air waves.

One should keep in mind that apples have always been the signature of a healthy diet (“An Apple a day keeps the doctor away’) but recent research from the University of Massachusetts at Lowell may have you reaching for an apple over any other fruit. Their research states that “Apples may also improve brain health….The regular consumption of apple juice helps keep our minds sharp and may even delay the onset of Alzheimer’s disease. Researchers also have found that apple juice may help individuals that already have Alzheimer’s disease by alleviating some of their symptoms, such as making them less agitated.” (Source - But if that can’t convince you to make apples part of your diet, check out the staggering figures just reported for dementia costs. “The worldwide costs of dementia will reach $604 billion in 2010, more than one percent of global GDP output, and those costs will soar as the number of sufferers triples by 2050, according to a report on Tuesday.” We are fortunate to be in the heart of apple country. It’s time to squeeze in some apple picking; it ‘tis the season.
