Experts agree: the best way to reduce your risk of disease is to eat healthier. Almost every day, another piece of research or another news story touts the importance of our dietary choices — especially the benefits of eating more fruits and vegetables.
Whether it’s a new vitamin, an antioxidant, or some other phytonutrients not yet “discovered” by science, fruits and vegetables contain an unparalleled array of nutritional elements that offer numerous health benefits for our bodies. And, the thousands of nutrients found in fruits and vegetables work together in ways that science is just beginning to explore.
The message is clear: we need more of the healthful whole food nutrition of fruits and vegetables in our diets, every day. It’s the one thing everyone agrees we can do to improve our health and reduce our risk of chronic diseases, such as heart disease, stroke, and cancer.
