A12 Palm Beach Post, Thursday, December 9, 1976 Fill Christmas Stockings With Apples, Professor Says GET ACQUAINTED Mm. We want you to visit our new store and we are offering this Christmas gift just for you ... ) a utsi ' UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. (UPI) Dr. Loren Tukey is urging Santa Claus to use a stocking stuffer he says can clean teeth, battle common colds and relieve hangovers. Tukey is a professor of pomology (fruit culture) at Penn State University, which helps to account for his belief that an apple in the Christmas stocking can do all. three and guard against rheumatism, as well. "It's not a cure-all of course," he said, "but an apple works positively in all those directions. "Then there's the calorie count. A measly 60 for a big, juicy apple versus 120 or so calories for a very simple Christmas cookie." Tukey said the malic acid in an apple dissolves lime in human bodies and leaves behind a residue that aids recovery from colds, influenza, virus infections and hangovers. "And an apple's efficiency as a tooth and gum cleaner is 95.5 per cent," Tukey said. "That's 30 per cent better than your toothbrush." Tukey conceded that "some dentists pooh pooh the apple as a dentifrice, but one who did not was the late Dr. Fred Miller of Altoona, Pa., who came to be known as 'Mr. Apple' for his promotion of apple munching as a tooth aid." Tukey also would like to see host-, esses adopt a European tradition of serving fresh fruit, with a fruit knife alongside, for dessert. "Coring or peeling an apple at the table after dinner relaxes and stimulates conversation," Tukey said. He said some right-thinking executives have bowls of apples on their conference tables and in reception rooms. "And Sparrow Hospital in Lansing, Mich., has replaced its cigarette machines with the sale of apples for relieving the tensions of doctors, nurses and visitors." Tukey says that while an apple goes to the core of the Christmas stocking problem, a gift apple tree can even top that given two or three years.
