There are so many apples to choose from, how about the green ones, the red ones, the honey crisp, Fuji, those are just a few. And no matter what, sweet or tart, just about everyone has their favorite.

An interesting fact, apples are of the Rose family of plants and are round and usually have green, red or pink colored skins. You can eat them raw or as some people do, bake them into a pie.

Besides their great taste, they come with an anti-cancer benefit too. They are loaded with flavonoids, especially in their skins, which help to reduce the risk of colon cancer, breast cancer and others.

If that is not enough the vitamins and minerals in apples are also said to help reduce your risks of diabetes, lower cholesterol, and help you keep your heart in tiptop shape. The fiber in apples is the key here are it helps keep blood sugars level, binds with fats and removes them, and thus helps to stop plaque from building in the arteries of the heart.
