One study states that you need 10 servings of fruit and vegetables a day (not five)

Research has concluded that to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease such as heart attacks or arrhythmias and even reduce the risk of premature death, five servings of fruit and vegetables a day is better than nothing... but not enough. Now, they propose 10 or the equivalent of 800 grams of vegetables. By doing so, you can reduce the risk by up to 24%.

However, not all are worth. The study qualifies this since not all have the same properties, nor nutritional values. Thus, to reduce the risk of cancer, the best vegetables are green, yellow and red (such as cauliflower, broccoli or red cabbage).

Cardiovascular diseases, on the other hand, find good allies in fruits like citrus fruits, pears, apples and green leafy vegetables.

The study, published in the International Journal of Epidemiology, further suggested that making small fruit intakes also has benefits. Do not fail every day ingesting a minimum of 2 and a half servings helps to reduce the risk of heart disease by 16%, 4% risk of cancer and up to 15% risk of premature death.

The research has collected the results of 95 different studies with more than two million subjects of reference.

And there is more. Thorax magazine has suggested that diets rich in fruit and vegetables help reduce chronic lung disease. This new statement comes as a result of a study carried out by experts in Sweden, in which they followed more than 44,000 men, diagnosing almost 2,000 cases of COPD.

Smokers, this is for you: the 5-vegetable-per-day rule helps reduce cases of lung disease by 35% but each additional portion is associated with a 4% lower risk of COPD in ex-smokers and 8% in Current smokers.

And here is also something to say the British Thoracic Society : since smoking cessation is difficult among smokers, you should know that a good way to alleviate all the negative effects it has on your health is to increase the intake of Vegetables and fruit in your diet.

Dr. Alison Tedstone , the UK's leading public health nutritionist, told Telegraph that "two-thirds of adults today do not consume the recommended minimum of 5 a day" and although it would be desirable to change that from 5-A -Day to "10-A-Day", the only thing that can be achieved is the opposite effect because of the added pressure and unrealistic expectations.

Come, an effort, which is for your sake!
