Fruits And Vegetables Extend Life Expectancy

By Dr. Brian McDonough, Medical Editor

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Here is a great argument for eating plenty of fruits and vegetables.

We know an apple a day was good for you – but now we know exactly how good. A single daily serving of fruits or vegetables is linked to a 5% lower risk of dying early – from any cause.

Think about that. All you have to do is add a single serving every day.

But even more interesting – each fruit or vegetable that you add to your daily intake is tied to a 5 percent additional drop in that risk, up to five servings a day.

The information is from the NIH and Harvard – two very reliable sources.
