Dr Peter Coleman, of the Stroke Association, said that apples have long been known as a natural source of antioxidants and chemical compounds called flavanoids, all of which are good for our health.

Coleman asserted that study shows that, as part of a healthy diet with plenty of fresh fruit and veggies, a daily apple could help to reduce the risk of stroke and heart disease.

Coleman added that while it is vital that those who have been prescribed statins continue to take the highly-effective medication, everyone can lower their risk of stroke with simple lifestyle changes, like eating a balanced diet.

The study is published in the British Medical Journal.
