An Apple a Day Keeps the Doctor Away
By Beth Beutler
  

1     An apple a day keeps the doctor away, or so the proverb says. According to legend, the only time Johnny Appleseed got sick was at the time of his death. Since he was born on September 26, 1774, and lived until 1845, that would mean he lived 70 years without being sick!
 
2     I've read that apple juice is a very healthy thing to drink, and it helps you fight off viruses and colds. Eating an apple is even better for you. That may be where we get the saying about apples keeping doctors away!
 
3     I imagine that Johnny Appleseed ate quite a few apples. He planted many apple seeds as he walked through the Midwest. His travels took him from Pennsylvania to Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, and Kentucky. That's a lot of apple seed planting. Do you think some of those trees still exist? Trees can live to a ripe old age - if you'll pardon the pun!
