The 11 Trillion Dollar Apple

Is an apple worth 11 trillon green backs ($$$). The Union of Concerned Scientists thinks so.

This sounds a little to good to be true, I wonder if this astounding apple medical power is based on adding it to the American diet, or is the apples power instilled by replacing a lesser snack

  • (Diet + Little Debbie Snack Cake) + apple = Prevention of 30,000 premature deaths
  • (Diet – Little Debbie Snack Cake) + apple = Prevention of 30,000 premature deaths

One thing is certain.

  • (Diet + Little Debbie Snack Cake) – apple ≠ Prevention of 30,000 premature deaths

It is a good mission either way. So in the American Democratic tradition, I am going to make the simple and likely superfluous gesture of writing my congress representative. I look forward to the form letter thanking me.

Do the same maybe?
