Does an Apple a Day Really Keep the Doctor Away?

It always seems that the doctor is telling us to eat less sugar and more fruits and vegetables, why is that? Well, fruits and vegetables have many benefits over prepackaged foods. Canned foods and frozen dinners tend to be high in salt, and this extra salt can cause your blood pressure to go up. Candy and sugary drinks such as soda and iced tea, can have lots of artificial sweeteners and sugars which can make it hard to keep your blood sugar under control. By eating a diet that consists of natural foods such as fruits and vegetables and home cooked meals, you can better manage your health and cut down on health expenses.
