Eat A Lot More Vegetables, Really

salad-791891_1920.jpgGovernment researchers have just announced that Americans are far from consuming adequate amounts of fruits and vegetables which in turn increases their odds of acquiring heart disease, cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer’s Disease as well as numerous other serious health conditions. These findings come from a health and eating habits survey conducted in 2005 of more than 300,000 Americans, called the 2005 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System. According to the survey, less than one third of adults consumed at least five daily servings of fruits and vegetables – the government’s suggested daily consumption of fruits and vegetables in 2005. New government guidelines have now increased the suggested daily consumption to three to five servings of fruit and four to eight servings of vegetables daily.
