Start your day with a warm, hearty breakfast
made with fresh, seasonable apples. In addition
to tasting great, apples are rich in health-promoting
antioxidants. They’re also an excellent source
of fiber, potassium, and vitamins A and C.
A growing body of research confirms that adding
this nutritious fall-time fruit to your diet
brings with it an impressive range of health
benefits, from heart disease and asthma to
cancer. So take advantage of plentiful apples...
use them in pies, breads, salads, sliced and
dipped in sauces, or eat them whole. They're
a healthy choice anytime.

research cites the importance of the old adage, “An
apple a day keeps the doctor away.” According
to the study, apples are packed with cancer-fighting
flavonols, plant compounds powerful enough
to reduce cancer risk, even among smokers!
Researchers monitored the eating habits and
health of approximately 183,000 people over
eight years. The study evaluated the participants'
food consumption and calculated the intake
of the three types of flavonols (quercetin,
kaempferol, and myricetin), determining that
flavonol intake reduces risk for developing
The most significant finding was among smokers.
Smokers with the lowest intake of flavonols
presented with the most pancreatic cancer.
Smoking is an established risk factor for the
often fatal pancreatic cancer, notes the research.
Among the other findings were that women had
the highest intake of total flavonols and seventy
percent of the flavonol intake came from quercetin,
linked to apple and onion consumption.
It is believed that these compounds have
anti-cancer effects due to their ability to
reduce oxidative stress and alter other cellular
functions related to cancer development. While
found in many plants, flavonols are highly
concentrated in apples, onions, tea, berries,
kale, and broccoli. Quercetin is most plentiful
in apples and onions.
Thanks to the Student Animal
Legal Defense Fund (SALDF), farmed animals have
a voice at University of New Mexico School of
Law. The dedicated group got active this month
in honor of World
Farm Animals Day. UNM Law SALDF
President Adriana Martin and officers Vanessa
Chavez (VP) and Koo Im Tong (Sec.) coordinated
an educational event to inform fellow students
about the plight of farmed animals.
In addition to hosting a bake sale to raise
donations, the group set up an information
table with a video playing actual footage of
animals in factory farms and slaughterhouses,
urging others to consider a compassionate diet.
Fellow students stopped by the table to pick up
literature, ask questions, and contribute to the
