An Apple a day keeps the doctor is what we hear since childhood but do we know the actual meaning of this one sentence. This commonly overlooked superfood protects the body from nuclear fallout, kills a wide range of cancers, and keeps the arteries unclogged – to name but a few, experimentally confirmed ways in which the apple awakens your inner physician.
Apple consumption has been the subject of quite a few studies on colorectal cancer risk reduction. Other cancers that apple constituents have been studied to kill in pre-clinical research include:
apple juice, apple pectin and apple peel has been experimentally confirmed to kill liver cancer,
apples have been found to both prevent and to suppress mammary cancers in the animal model.
Multi-Drug Resistant Cancer: carotenoids extracted from apple have been found to inhibit drug resistant cancer cell line proliferation
An apple-derived procyanidin has been found to suppress esophageal cancer.
One of the ways in which apple constituents prevent stomach cancer is through their inhibition of Helicobacter pylori, one of the main infectious agents linked to both ulcer and gastric cancer. But apple procyanidin has also been studied for its ability to directly induce programmed cell death within stomach cancer cells.
Another proven way in which apples reduce the risk of cancer is through their ability to remove carcinogenic radioisotopes that have accumulated in our bodies as a result of the fallout from nuclear weapons, depleted uranium munitions, and nuclear energy and disaster-associated pollution, e.g. Chernobyl and Fukushima.
We could, therefore, modernize our apple aphorism by saying “an apple a day keeps the nuclear fallout away.”
Apple, in combination with chamomile, shortens the course of unspecific diarrhea in children.
Remarkably, a procyanidin, labeled B-2, from apples promotes hair growth, in the cell model.
Staphylococcal Infections: Apple pectin has been shown to inhibit synthesis of types A and B staphylococcal enterotoxins, which can cause profound bodily damage.
Over 60 years ago researchers found that the complex carbohydrates that make up apple pectin inhibit the infectivity of influenza A virus in chicken blood, as well in embryonated eggs, indicating its potential anti-influenza properties.
Apple Pies are too delicious.
Jim Gerritsen, his family, hundreds of farmers, organizations, activists and citizens around the world are fighting Monsanto Corporation policies everyday.
They work to ensure the rights of consumers and to hold corporations accountable for their actions. As consumers, our everyday choices are the best weapons we have.
Lets buy more from the Organic farmers instead of buying from the corporations and be a part of this revolution.
1. NO REAL FOOD
McDonald's doesn't serve you real food, they serve you food like products that do not decompose. Who can forget that there was a woman a couple of years ago who left a burger and fries from McDonald’s on a table for six months only to find that the snack does not decompose?
It has a salad with more fat than a burger and fries and the least healthy granola on the planet. McDonald’s launched a Caesar salad more greasy than a burger and fries. The Daily Mailnoticiou reports that “with the seasoning and croutons, the salad contains 425 calories and 21.4 grams of fat compared with 253 calories and 7.7 grams of fat in a burger.
Did you see this:
4. EMPLOYEES AREN'T PAID WELL
Employees are not paid well in general. That they do not receive overtime for working on holidays is already bad, but that they barely earn much throughout the year is a reality for workers at McDonald’s. An ordinary employee of McDonald’s would have to work a million hours – or more than a century – to earn the same as a CEO receives in a year (8.75 million dollars).
5. PINK SLIME
Not long ago, we saw and we were horrified with the image. “Pink slime” is a substance derived from mechanically separated chicken parts which for years was used to make the nuggets from McDonald’s, at least in the U.S. and the UK. The substance is considered illegal for human consumption. Recently, thanks to activists, ‘pink slime’ was banned from U.S. school lunches.
