According to a University College London study, “Eating seven or more portions of fruit and vegetables a day reduces your risk of death at any point in time by 42% compared to eating less than one portion.”
The article posted on the UCL website went on to say that, “Researchers used the Health Survey for England to study the eating habits of 65,226 people representative of the English population between 2001 and 2013, and found that the more fruit and vegetables they ate, the less likely they were to die at any age. Eating seven or more portions reduces the specific risks of death by cancer and heart disease by 25% and 31% respectively."
It is wonderful to see a study that demonstrates what nutritionists (and our mothers) have been say for years, “Eat Your Veggies!”
