can trust her. Questions from our viewers, number one, CDC guidance says unvaccinated people can be around fully vaccinated grandparents as long as no one is high risk, but should we be wearing masks? Well, okay, first of all, the CDC, it was great to see them start to revise some guidelines for people who have been vaccinated, so we saw them do it for close, small, at-home settings, which this question refers to. We also saw them do it for travel, which is great. We expect to see more of that. In terms of people who have been vaccinated, yes, you can go to see other people who have been vaccinated and not distance and not wear a mask. However, when they talk about unvaccinated people who are at high risk of getting covid, and what I find interesting is, remember, the focus is on that other person, it's not on us, the vaccinated people, then you might want to remember some of those mitigation measures, you know, wearing a mask, congregating outside, keeping your distance, obviously if you're not feeling well or if you've been exposed to someone who may be on quarantine, you want to put off that visit but err on the side of caution, especially when you're talking about a high-risk population. Question two. Everybody here has heard it. Curious about the origins. Does an apple a day really keep the doctor away? The answer to this is, no, this is not found in our medical school textbooks, however, there is some nutritional science data that suggests that fruits that are white like Pears and apples contain high amounts of fiber. Fiber is good for your health, and obviously, let's remember, if you're eating apples, you're probably not eating candy or kind of calorie-dense nutrient poor snacks, so apple away. Generally speaking. But don't stay away from your doctor. No, of course not. All right, Dr. Ashton, and your wings over there. You can submit your questions to Dr. Ashton on her Instagram @drjashton. The wings are because of the halo over her.
