An apple a day

"An apple a day keeps the doctor away."

Wow!  The first recorded use was only in the 1860s, not that long as we thought.  And the original phrase was

"Eat an apple on going to bed, and you'll keep the doctor from earning his bread."

And the phrase evolved to

"An apple a day, no doctor to pay.”
"An apple a days sends the doctor away.”
The phrasing now commonly used was first recorded in 1922 though.
