Eating 5 a day of fruits and vegetables?

It’s not enough….this study suggests even greater protective effects from eating 10 serving a day.  Compared to eating no fruits and vegetables here are the risk reductions…

Eating up to 800g fruit and vegetables a day, or 10 portions, was associated with:

  •     24 per cent reduced risk of heart disease
  •     33 per cent reduced risk of stroke
  •     28 per cent reduced risk of cardiovascular disease
  •     13 per cent reduced risk of total cancer
  •     31 per cent reduction in dying prematurely
