And "Arteries"?

As Doc Häagen-Dazs pointed out in a recent comment on  my last post,  A is for Apple - and "Aomori",   'A is for Apple and "Arteries"!'.   This reminded me that Dr. Michael Greger has a number of video clips on his website Nutritionfacts.org about the health effects of apples, including this one regarding a study on dried apples vs cholesterol.



One of the great things about Dr. Greger's website is that he always references the supporting documents so you can go look them up and see for yourself (just click on "Sources Cited" under the clip.  This video appears on his site here:   "Dried Apples vesus Cholesterol".

So yes indeed, A is for Apple, and Apples are for (healthier) Arteries!

Thanks Doc Häagen-Dazs and Doc Greger.

Until next, sweet and healthy sailing!

One group was "forced 3 ounces of dried apple rings a day for a year"? How bad do they taste, these dried apples?

Tongue-in-cheek. Dr. Greger's presentations are usually full of humor like that remark, or puns. You know when one delivers an hour talk on the ten leading causes of death and the way to avoid them through diet, laughter helps a lot. :)
