No, that's wrong. All the essential nutrients are in the skin, the rest is mostly just sugar and water. I have a friends who's a real health nut and when he eats apples he just takes shallow bites to get off all the skin and enough apple to keep it moist than composts the rest.

Good info thank you!

Political freedom can only be preceded by economic freedom which is preceded by monetary freedom.

It's the skin, stupid!

Take apples for instance. Apples are a powerful SuperFood. In a host of important studies, regular consumption of apples is linked to significant reduction of the risk of developing Type II Diabetes, Cardiovascular Disease, Asthma, and some cancers. Apples contain special phytonutrients like phloridzin and phloretin xylogucoside that give apples their unique and potent anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory qualities.

But there's a catch. The vast majority of all that great disease fighting, health promoting 'stuff' with complicated chemical names is in the peel of the apple, not the meat! For instance, the peel has six times the antioxidant power of the meat!
So throw out that apple peeler or you be throwing out the best part of the fruit.

It's the same for tomatoes, cranberries, oranges and grapes and blueberries (Click here to see an earlier article on blueberry skin. Even the brownish skins of nuts like peanuts and almonds contain a much larger portion than does the meat inside of these very important phytonutrients.

The video says that eating the stem, the seeds, and that fuzzy crap at the top and bottom of the apple is the right way.
