Abstract: The following is established:

Let $ W$ and $ B$ be open sets of real numbers whose union has full measure. If for each $ x$, the set $ \{ h > 0\vert x - h \in W,x + h \in B\} $ has density zero at zero, then these sets are all empty.

This is then used to prove the following:

If $ f$ is a continuous real valued function with a nonnegative lower approximate symmetric derivative, then $ f$ is nondecreasing.
