While an apple a day has long been said to keep the doctor away, the sweet fruit may have had its time as a universal symbol of wellness. You see, avocados have taken the culinary world by storm – both for their subtle nutty flavor and their many health benefits. So, what exactly happens to your body when you eat avocado on a daily basis? Well, as it turns out, there are likely to be some rather startling consequences.
It’s fair to say, too, that the avocado’s rise has been stratospheric. One way to quantify its popularity is to measure the amount of the fruit that Americans eat annually. In 1989, for instance, that figure was about a half-kilo of avocado per person; as of 2016, though, Americans each consumed 3 kilos annually. Plus, that number is anticipated to increase further in the years to come.
