Every now and then a study comes out that I just love.
Two apples a day lower serum cholesterol and improve cardiometabolic biomarkers in mildly hypercholesterolemic adults: a randomized, controlled, crossover trial.
At last, scientific proof of what we’ve always been taught.
Well, two apples, but OK.
Also OK, who paid for this?
Supported in part by AGER (Agribusiness and research) grant no. 2010-2119 funding the project “Apple fruit quality in the post-genomic era, from breeding new genotypes to post-harvest: nutrition and health.”
AGER is an Italian foundation devoted to promoting Italian agribusiness, supported, it says, by banking foundations.
I’ll take that at face value and enjoy the research.
