What that is truly meant to express is that if you take good care of yourself and eat healthy, nutritious meals then you won't fall ill as much as someone who eats like crap and doesn't take care of themselves.
One thing to be aware of: there's another saying (not to so well known and probably kind of new) that expresses a problem with eating apples: an apple a day may keep the doctor away but not the dentist. (Not really sure of the exact wording). The point is that fruits and juices even though usually good for you (not those juices that have tons of sugar), the acidic content can erode away the enamel on your teeth. Especially if you tend to brush your teeth right after eating them (the acid softens the enamel and then you brush it away). I've never mastered the ability to leave that on my teeth, though. After I eat an apple I just can't wait until I can get to the bathroom to brush. I've even tried just drinking water to help that icky feeling go away but it doesn't work.

Well it's a wholesome fruit...so it would be healthy for you...It actaully doesnt mean like if you are suffering from chicken pox then you would have to go to doc no matter if you eat an apple everyday.
