Fruit and veg extends life expectancy

The latest research showing the health benefits of regular fruit and vegetable consumption suggest that eating your five a day can help to add at least three years to your life expectancy. The study at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm into 71,000 studied 71,706 men and women volunteers in the age group of 45 - 83 for 13 years. They found that people who didn't consumed much fruit or vegetables died about 37 months before people who ate five portions daily. Adults who never consumed fruit died 19 months before than those who consumed at least one piece daily and those who never ate a vegetable outlived people consuming three a day by 32 months. Source: Image, Source: Fresh-Plaza
