That's more of a clever way to say that if you eat healthy there won't be much need for a doctor. It's kind of hard to fix what's not broken. Good luck to you.

Only in a sense. It is just a saying that means you should eat fruit or some other healthy snack and not a candy bar, or some other junk food.

Nah, too much sugar. You're better off eating Avocados.

It has been said that “an apple a day keeps the doctor away.” While that is not always the case, the apple does have this favorable reputation. Why? Because of the things it contains that can affect one’s health for the good.

Each single apple is a small storehouse of important nutrients. When ripe, it contains vitamins B1, B2, B6, C, and E. It also offers a variety of sugars, such as dextrose, fructose, and sucrose. The combination of acids in it is responsible for the flavor. In addition, it contains a number of mineral substances, such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, and others, as well as pectin and fiber. About 85 percent of the apple is water.

Interestingly, apples have properties that are said to be beneficial for cleansing the digestive system. These same properties aid in curing both constipation and diarrhea.

Nevertheless, apples contribute to your good health. So if you want to “keep the doctor away,” then try eating an apple each day!
