An apple a day keeps the doctor away. No, make that TWO!

7 Jul

A core EU policy

Granny was wrong apparently.

That old saying that an apple a day keeps the doctor away has been revised by the EU.

They’re now saying we have to eat two apples a day.

A project funded by the EU to the tune of €13.8m (about £11.4m) discovered that two apples can help reduce cholesterol by 10%.

Its organisers also helpfully tell us that dipping apples and peaches in hot water at precise temperatures can reduce brown rot by 80% and remove e-coli and salmonella bacteria.

These findings make up one of eight research projects on food quality which are to be presented at the European Parliament tomorrow.

Johnny says: “I’m just off to dip my peach.”
