Lower Your Risk of Death; Eat More Fruits and Vegetables

A followup study on eating habits confirmed the relationship between higher fruit and vegetable consumption and lower cardiovascular disease and death.

Specifically, consuming fruits and vegetables 3 or more times a day versus less than 1 time a day resulted in:

  • 27% lower stroke incidence
  • 42% lower stroke mortality
  • 24% lower ischemic heart disease mortality
  • 27% lower cardiovascular disease mortality
  • 15% lower all-cause mortality

With studies like this, evidence in support of a vegan and vegetarian diet for better health is growing daily. Keep them coming!
