An apple a day may keep Alzheimer’s disease away!

An apple a day’ might keep dementia at bay. According to an international study the fruit is rich in chemicals that fuel neurons, improving learning and memory. Recent experiments on natural compounds found in apples and other fruits may help to stimulate the production of new brain cells, which could have implications for learning and memory, according to a new study by researchers at the University of Queensland, and the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases.
