An apple a day keeps the doc away?

In today's world, not having an apple a day might keep the doc away. This happened a few months back on a cold winter afternoon when I was having my snack attack on an apple. While digging my teeth in it, I felt a bitter taste and observed the apple more closely than I would ever have. It had a white coating over it. I then realised why all the apples in the grocery stores had that shine on them. They coat the apples w/ wax to increase their shelf life. From that day on, I've always scraped the apple to remove the wax and then ate it. My love for apples was stronger than the wax on the apples itself. ;)

Wow!! That's creepy!! I hadn't imagined they do that. No wonder apples in hypermarkets shine like a star when you look at them from a kilometer away.
