Health Tip – June 28 – Apples and Tomatoes, Edible Essentials

Filed under: Dee Dee |

A new study suggests that apples and tomatoes may help prevent respiratory disease.

Researchers at the University of Nottingham in the United Kingdom studied 2,633 adults and found a link between the intake of apples and tomatoes and the subjects’ respiratory health.

Those who ate five apples or three tomatoes per week scored highest on a test that measured the amount of air a person can expel from the lungs in one second.

Lead researcher Emma Broadfield and colleagues theorize that the high levels of antioxidants in these two foods may have a beneficial effect on lung function.
