In times past, we used to say “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”. Now-a-days, this saying is not so true—-at least, not in the USA.
Many of the apples purchased at super markets have been sprayed with the chemical diphenylamine (DPA) that keeps the fruit looking shiny, fresh and wholesome – but looks can be deceiving.
While the “powers that be” claim that DPA is safe, there is no mention of the research that backs up the claim. After all, there is a long history of chemicals that we thought were safe but that actually did harm to your DNA over time. A healthy DNA is required for recovery from MS.
So, it is a good idea to ask whether the fruits that you eat – that look so appealing – have been sprayed with DPA. Ask your grocer next time you are in the supermarket.
