It is established in the medical literature that there are many health benefits of eating fruits and vegetables.  A diet rich in fruits and vegetables is associated with a lower risk of cardiovascular disease, certain types of cancer (including lung cancer and cancer of the gastrointestinal tract), and lower risk of early death. It is recommended that everyone eat AT LEAST 5 servings of fruit and vegetables.  The USDA went and made it … [Read More...]
