The apple is a tree and its pomaceous fruit, of the species Malus domestica in the rose family Rosaceae. It is one of the most widely cultivated tree fruits. It is a small deciduous tree reaching 5-12 m tall, with a broad, often densely twiggy crown. The flowers are produced in spring with the leaves, white, usually tinged pink at first, 2.5-3.5 cm diameter, with five petals. The fruit matures in Autumn, and is typically 5-8 cm diameter (rarely up to 15 cm).

To a greater degree than other tree fruit, except possibly cit- rus, apples store for months while still retaining much of their nutritive value. Winter apples, picked in late autumn and stored just above freezing, have been an important food in Asia and Europe for millennia, as well as in Argentina and in the United States since the arrival of Euro- peans.

The word apple comes from the Old English word aeppel, which in turn has recognizable cog- nates in a number of the northern branches of the Indo-European language family. The prevail- ing theory is that “apple” may be one of the most ancient Indo-European words (*abl-) to come down to English in a recognizable form. The scientific name malus, on the other hand, comes from the Latin word for apple, and ultimately from the archaic Greek malon (melon in later dia-lects). The legendary place name Avalon is thought to come from a Celtic evolution of the same root as the English “apple”; the name of the town of Avellino, near Naples in Italy is likewise thought to come from the same root via the Italic languages.

Health benefits… I include the following information on apples to demonstrate that all our commonly eaten foods may, and generally do, have a health impact on our bodies. (Hence the importance of good nutrition.) While the information provided is commonly accepted scientific fact, Symmetry is making no health claims for our juice beverage: Genesis. I simple supply this information for your reference and consideration.

Apples have long been considered healthy, as indicated by the proverb “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”. Research suggests that apples may reduce the risk of colon cancer, prostate cancer and lung cancer. Like many fruits, Apples contain Vitamin C as well as a host of other antioxidant compounds, which explains the reduced risk of cancer (with the free radical expla- nation of reduced cancer risk to due prevented DNA damage). The fiber in the fruit (while less than most other fruits) helps keep the bowels healthy, which may be a factor in the reduced risk of colon cancer. They may also help with heart disease, weight loss and controlling cholesterol, as they do not have any cholesterol, have fiber (which reduces cholesterol by preventing re- absorption), and are bulky for their caloric content like most fruits and vegetables.

Chang Y. “Cy” Lee of the Cornell University found that the apple phenolics, which are naturally occurring antioxidants found in fresh apples, can protect nerve cells from neurotoxicity induced by oxidative stress. The researchers used red delicious apples grown in New York state to provide the extracts to study the effects of phytochemicals. Lee said that all apples are high in the critical phytonutri- ents and that the amount of phenolic compounds in the apple flesh and in the skin vary from year to year, season to season and from growing region to growing region (November/ December 2004 issue of the Journal of Food Science). The predominant phenolic phytochemi- cals in apples are quercetin, epicatechin, and procyanidin B2 (PMID 14558772), as well as ellagic acid.
