Apples Provide Health Benefits

Updated: Tuesday, August 13 2013, 04:45 PM EDT
There is yet another benefit to eating an apple a day, especially for your kids!

Hard to believe these days of Summer will soon be over and Fall will set in,, which means it will soon be apple season.
We stopped out in O’Bryanville today to meet up with our Local 12 team members Dave and Megan Sleater. They have a beautiful baby named Drew who is just starting to eat apples and apple juice. Researchers in this study found either one is okay.

Researchers in the European Journal of Cancer Prevention looked at those who ate an apple a day or got apple juice even from the time they were little -and they could specifically link the apple eating to a reduced risk for certain cancers.

In women it was ovarian cancer, in men throat and larynx. Either way, it's going to be the season for eating them really soon.

And cancer prevention is just one more reason to enjoy the season.
