Does An Apple a Day Really Keep the Doctor Away?

We’ve all heard this saying before: “An apple a day keeps the doctor a way.” But is that really true?

Apples contain components such as Vitamin C, Pectin, Quercetin and Phytonutrients. These components help to reduce blood pressure, help with digestion, boost immunity, and can reduce the risk of certain cancers, heart disease, asthma and  even diabetes. So while apples are certainly good for you and can play a significant role in keeping you healthy, it’s also important to remember that they are not a guarantee that you won’t get sick, and you should not abandon your health.

Vancouver physician Dr. Ali Ghahary recommends having regular annual check-ups to ensure that your health is in order.

While Dr. Ghahary is not accepting new patients, he is still available to see patients on a walk-in basis if you have any questions relating to your health. Dr. Ghahary’s schedule can be found by visiting
