Study: Apple a day keeps breast cancer away

Posted by Rachel Leigh email

(WFLX) - An apple a day may actually keep the doctor away as far as breast cancer is concerned.

Scientists at Cornell University say apples, as well as daily servings of other fruits and vegetables, could decrease the chance of getting breast cancer by as much as 70 percent.

In lab tests, researchers found animals given apple extracts had fewer tumors, and the tumors they did have were smaller, less malignant and grew more slowly.
