Does an Apple a Day Keep the Doctor Away?

Does an Apple a Day Keep the Doctor Away

Does an apple a day keep the doctor away?

On a lonely, bleak afternoon, I decided to look into it. Yes, I wish I had something better to do too. In fact, I didn’t just look into it and write about it, I made a video about it and published it to my Youtube channel. (See below.) I also made a cool AI image with an apple sitting on top of a hospital, as if it is superior to all the corporate slaves (I mean doctors!) inside.

I eat apples weekly, not daily. I don’t go to the doctor very often, but that has more to do with anxiety than apples. Even if something feels off inside me, I tell myself I’m going to wait it out and let Father Time do his job. (He has a cheaper copay too.) I don’t want to go to the doctor with exploding anxiety, find out something is wrong and then get even more exploding anxiety. Is that smart of me? No. Is it logical? Nah. Is that how things are? Yup. And it’s gotten me this far in life, so there’s that. So far (knock on wood) Father Time hasn’t let me down. And yes…, I live an insanely, annoyingly disciplined healthy lifestyle where I must work out every day and I eat healthy and yadda yadda, but stuff can still go wrong. Maybe I’ll just eat more apples, we’ll see.

I eat both green and red apples…because I’m not racist. Ahem, for real though, I mostly eat green. Granny Smith. I eat her sweet, green apples. In case you didn’t know, she was an actual woman who lived in Australia, ran an orchard and had 8 children. And for some reason, I have the urge to say, “How bout them apples!?!”

Anyhow, does an apple a day keep the doctor away? That’s what I hope to get on about.

The video below will tell you everything you need to know. Maybe not everything but enough to arm you with useless information to impress a date or a stranger at Whole Foods or your dog. Nah, your dog won’t care. My dog doesn’t even eat apples. He will, however, lick one if it is slathered with enough peanut butter.

Ladies, Gents and all in between, I present: Does an Apple a Day Keep the Doctor Away:


PS: Consider subscribing to Youtube.  It’s good for my self-esteem and sometimes I even say useful things.

Also, if apples aren’t your thing, I invite you to read this more serious post on Prunes. (It actually is more serious. Well, the video isn’t, but the written portion is.)

Till whenever,
