I've heard about this.
I don't know how far to carry it. I eat apples on a regular basis (peel included) and I would say I have a decent libido. I have problems with lubrication though.

It may be that women who eat two or more apples a day also eat other healthy foods and are healthier in general. That would be a logical explanation for the higher interest in sex.

Wonder how much money the "Apple Grows International" (or whatever the trade group is called) paid to sponsor that study?

Yep, seems pretty obvious. I wonder why they didn't mention that.

Apples also help increase ones dopamine and serotonin, that might help as well.
God can change what people do, behavioral patterns that have been in play for decades. He can change what we do to cope, find comfort, survive conflict, to count. Rahab had done a same old thing for years...then she did something new.

I get plenty of C. :D Either naturally or from a pill.

The study was done in Italy. I don't know what their Apple Counsel is called or if they were involved. Could be. I think there is something to it though.

So our good buddy Mr. Appleseed was helping the sex lives of those along his way as well. An interesting side is that Apples are not "true to seed." This means if you take an apple seed from a Red Delicious and plant it, you just get a wild crab apple tree, not a Red Delicious. Apple trees are mutant trees that grafting must be taken and splice to another root system in order to get the type of tree you want.

So, why did everyone celebrate Mr. Appleseed given he was planting trees that would offer up an unpalatable fruit? Well, so that fruit could be fermented to hard cider, of course. So, I'd put grapes in the same category and call it truth.

Well, the green M&Ms aren't working...

Yeah, and they were researching Italian women and not Germans, so the baseline is completely different. Just sayin'. :lol:
