In the News- Eating Apples and Pears May Reduce Stroke Risk

There is no better time than now to stock up on fall/winter fruits like apples and pears that are piling up in the produce department- eating them may lower your risk of stroke! Dutch researchers have just released a study that consuming white flesh fruits and veggies, namely apples and pears, even in small amounts could reduce stroke risk as much as nine percent! Check HERE for a quick summary of the research, and you can click HERE to see an abstract of the actual study published in the journal Stroke: Journal of the American Heart Association.

I try to eat an apple a day to keep the doctor away....LOL. I love the combination of pear and apples, it's my kids favorite and made it all the time for them as infants.
