Hello dear friend @essygold,you're right on all your review but one thing that struck me in your research is this;

Apples contain antioxidants, vitamin A, vitamin C, fiber, and several other nutrients that may boost heart, brain, and digestive health.
Indeed apples contains antioxidants but this English able is not really as effective as it should because of the preservatives used in storing and keeping them Fresh, local apple although not really sweet is simply the best.

Thank for sharing and good luck on your contest.

@ladyofpolicy you all are a good example here in Steemit when it comes to reading and analysing articles, thanks so much.

Interesting, Thanks so much for sharing the health benefits of eating these fruit....I benefited ...
