An apple a day does not keep the doctor away

Adapted from Becker’s Hospital Review.

The proverb “An apple a day keeps the doctor away,” dates back to the 1860s. (The Washington Post).

A recent study published in the April Fool’s issue of JAMA  found no significant difference regarding doctor’s visit between daily apple eaters compared to others.

Apple eaters were slightly more successful in avoiding prescription medications, suggesting the proverb should say, “An apple a day keeps the pharmacist away.”
