You’ve probably already heard that a healthy diet can help reduce a host of diseases and conditions, as well as help improve how your body looks and performs.
But now, a new study is singling out one food group in particular as the one that can really help save your life.
But…there’s a catch.
According to HealthDay, researchers analyzed the eating habits of more than 65,000 people in England between 2001 and 2013. Their findings?
- People who ate seven or more portions of fresh fruits and vegetables a day (twice the recommended amount in the United States) had a 42 percent lower risk of premature death at any age.
- People who ate five to seven potions of produce had a 36 percent lower risk of death.
- People who ate three to five potions of produce had a 29 percent lower risk of death.
“We all know that eating fruit and vegetables is healthy, but the size of the effect is staggering,” study author Oyinlola Oyebode, at the department of epidemiology and public health of University College London, said in a university news release.
Are Fruit Or Veggies More Important?
The researchers behind the study also say that eating more vegetables is somewhat more important than eating more fruit. Fresh vegetables reduced overall premature death risks by 16 percent. Fresh fruit reduced this risk by 4 percent.
