An apple a day may hold colorectal cancer at bay: recent evidence from a case-control study.

​Consuming generous servings of apple daily may improve an individual's chances of preventing colorectal cancer

This study investigated the hypothesis that an apple a day may hold colorectal cancer at bay. Researchers from Poland looked at dietary and clinical data obtained from a case-control study.

Researchers found an inverse association between the frequency of apple consumption and the risk of developing colorectal cancer. The results of this study support the hypothesis that an apple a day may help to ward off colorectal cancer.
