New Study Finds Daily Fruit & Vegetable Consumption May Improve Life Expectancy & Quality

A new comprehensive review commissioned by the Produce for Better Health Foundation demonstrates that fruits and vegetables have unique, synergistic health-promoting properties that may help improve life expectancy and quality.

The review assessed nearly 100 studies, evaluating the effects of fruits and vegetables on 17 different types of cancer as well as cardiovascular disease, immunity, lung health, mental health and various others.

Results indicate eating at least five servings of fruits and vegetables every day can drastically reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, a leading death contributor among Americans. Findings reveal a protective effect against a range of other diseases including certain forms of cancer, and a positive impact on eye and bone health. While research is still emerging, eating fruits and vegetable as part of healthy dietary patterns has also been associated with overall life satisfaction and happiness.

The study authors conclude that fruits and vegetables are nutrient-rich plant foods that deserve their prominent place on Americans’ plates and in the plant-forward food dialogue. All forms of fruits and vegetables – fresh, frozen, canned, dried and 100% juice – offer generally consistent nutritional benefits that can improve health and overall diet quality.
