Fruits and Vegetables: Are They Really Worth It?

It can be time-consuming and at times expensive to eat a nutritious diet.  And even though we know we should eat healthy, many don’t really believe that it will make a difference in the long run.  So let’s look at what scientific studies have to say:

Researchers analyzed more than 200 human trials, from 20 different countries that included diverse populations, for the association of fruit and vegetable intake and the incidence of cancer.  More than 80% of the studies showed significant protective effects of fruit and vegetables.  People with low fruit and vegetable consumption had a two times higher risk of cancer than those with high intakes.  So what are you waiting for?  Eat your veggies!
