Apples Nutrients and Health Benefits

Apple and Apple Flowers in a basket.I decided to write a new and updated article post for a typical apple fruit. The older article can be found here, it was called Apple Nutrients and Benefits. An Apple in Russian look like this Яблоко, and you would pronounce it like this Yabloko. Apple’s Binomial name is Malus Domestica from the family of Rosaceae. Apple trees can grow as high as 39 feet (or 12 meters). Apple’s seeds are called pips.

Apple fruit is extremely popular throughout the world. For instance in 2005 at least 55 million tonnes of apples were grown worldwide, which value is about ten billion dollars. In 2008 the top ten apple producing countries were China, USA, Iran, Turkey, Russia, Italy, India, France, Chile, and Argentina.

Some people claim that the apple’s seeds are slightly poisonous, but on the other hand many people still eat them and claim that they are very healthy instead. As far as I know don’t overdose on apple’s seeds and you should be fine, but it’s totally up to you if you want to risk eating them. After reading and listening to people’s and scientists’ reviews on fruits’ seeds I came to conclusion that most the seeds contain Vitamin B17 (also called Laetrile or Amygdaline) which is the cure and prevention of most or all cancers. At the same time it is very easy to overdose on seeds, so just estimate how many fruits you could eat at one time and that is how much seeds should be safe for you to consume. Big medicine companies and some hospitals don’t want you to know about the Vitamin B17 because you can save lots of money by curing or preventing cancer by yourself. To find out more about Vitamin B17 read my older article called One of the Best Anti-cancers – Vitamin B17.
