AN APPLE A DAY MAY BE GOOD AFTER ALL

As a Fort Myers MD and plastic surgeon, I try to keep up with news related to skin care.

Now there's this:

Maybe we should put those potato chips and chocolate cookies aside (even though they taste good), and start munching on apple slices and carrot sticks.

A new study revealed if you only eat ONE – that’s right – not two – extra servings of a fruit or vegetable, it can enhance the appearance of your skin. The study involved 35 college students and after 6 weeks, independent observers noticed an increase in the redness and yellowness of individuals who ate extra fruit/vegetables. They feel the carotenoids in the fruits/vegetables was the causative culprit.

Sounds good.
