Knowledge Drop | Can an apple a day actually keep the doctor away?
Well... kinda! Pears + apples — also known as pomes — belong to the rose family (rosaceae). Rich in flavonoid antioxidants, both pears and apples play a role in helping your body fight inflammation, which reduces your risk of disease. In fact, studies linked a high consumption of flavonoids to a 20% lower risk of stroke. So, a pome-powered salad a day might really help keep the doctor away!
