    If you eat an apple a day, you're also supposed to not brush your teeth so that you have to go to the dentist so often that you dont have time to go to the doctor's, at least thats how i interpretted it

    because if you eat enough of them you will fart alot and the doctor will want to stay as far away from you as they can.

    Well, of course it's a silly saying, but it has a grain of truth in it. Apples contain a decent amount of fiber, and recent studies show that organic apples have a pretty good amount of probiotic bacteria (the good kind for your digestion) in them. So they're definitely better to eat than a Big Mac or a cupcake.

    A variant of the proverb, "Eat an apple on going to bed, and you’ll keep the doctor from earning his bread" was recorded as a Pembrokeshire saying in 1866. The current phrasing, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away", began usage at the end of the 19th century. However, a 2015 study showed there is absolutely no evidence to that.
