Cosmic crisp – a new apple to get your teeth into
After 30 years ’ experimentation, farmers in Washington state are ready for the biggest ever planting of a new variety of appleNearly 30 years ago, Dr Bruce Barritt was jeered when he branded the apple industry in Washington state a dinosaur for growing obsolete varieties such as red and golden delicious. Now, farmers in the state, where 70% of US apples are grown, are ripping up millions of trees and replacing them with a new variety, the cosmic crisp, which Barritt, a horticulturalist, has created in the decades since.With 12m trees to be planted by 2020, and the first harvest of apples due in the shops in 2019, it...

Daily diet of fresh fruit linked to lower diabetes risk
Conclusion The study findings – that eating fresh fruit every day does not raise the risk of diabetes, and may reduce it – are reassuring and in line with dietary advice in the UK. It's also helpful to see evidence that people who already have diabetes are likely to benefit from fresh fruit as well, because there has not been much research into fruit-eating for people with diabetes. However, it's a step too far to say that fresh fruit prevents diabetes or diabetes complications. Fresh fruit is just one part of a healthy diet, and diet is just one of the things that may affect someone's risk of getting diabetes....

FYI, Apples Are Often Frozen In Time For 10 Months Before You Eat Them
When you pick out an apple at the grocery store, you may not think much about where it came from. But the truth is that some apples take a fascinatingly long journey to get to you. If you’re eating an American-grown apple at this time of year, chances are it’s been in storage for about five months now. Eat one in July, and it could’ve been stored for nearly a year.  Apples can last for months in specialized storage. If you think they’re picked and delivered straight to you year-round, then you’re mistaken. “Apples are harvested once a year in the U.S.,” says Alisha A...

Conclusion This research supports the idea that the more fruit and veg you eat the better – at least, up to 10 portions (800g) a day. It also suggests the number of people who die early might be reduced if they were to eat more than the current recommended guideline daily amount. However, before we take this at face value, there are some important considerations: There are likely to be many confounding factors that may have affected the results.

It's a pretty easy way to come home with at least a little change in your pocket. According to a 2013 study, uninsured people have a 5% chance of incurring healthcare bills exceeding $47,300.
