Fruits and vegetables:
A diet rich in fruits and vegetables, especially raw, can help increase our immune system and help lower our risks of all types of degenerative diseases include, heart disease and cancer. Most of these servings should be raw since cooking/heat kills the live enzymes and destroys much of the nutrients in food (depending upon the cooking method). Raw fruits and vegetables are loaded with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, live enzymes and fiber to help keep us healthy.
The news isn't that fruit and vegetables are good for you.
It's that they are so good for you, they could save your life!"

The Framingham Study:
People who ate many servings of raw fruits and vegetables each day decreased their risk of a stroke.
3 servings a day decreased risk by 22 %
6 servings a day decreased risk by 44 %
9 servings a day decreased risk by 66 %

WHY MORE MATTERS
The reason why the recommendations have continued to increase through the years is because today's produce is lacking nutrients as compared to decades ago. As a result, in order to get the nutrients from one bowl of salad consumed in the 1950’s (when produce was much more nutrient-dense), we now have to eat approximately 15 bowls! As a result, the 3-5 servings per day that was recommended decades ago, is no longer sufficient for us today to keep our immune systems optimal and to lower our risk of degenerative disease. We now need to eat many more servings in order get the same protection that produce offered years ago.
Some reasons for this are the following:
* Mass farming methods have completely depleted our soil from the nutrients it
* Selective breeding, large quantities of pesticides, and synthetic fertilizers
decrease produce's ability to synthesize nutrients or absorb them from the soil.
* Today's produce is picked green, (when it has the least amount of
nutrients) rather than when it is vine-ripened, and sprayed with chemicals to
keep it green. Later, it is sprayed with more chemicals to make it look
* Too much time is being spent between when produce is consumed and when
the produced was picked from its life source, the vine, (only to sit on a truck
during transportation, in storage, on a shelf, and in our fridge) before
FATS: THE GOOD THE BAD,
& THE UGLY
Biggest research study in history:
American Institute for Cancer Research, Washington, D.C. (1997)
* 150 scientists reviewed 4500 research studies on nutrition & cancer.
* Conclusion: fruits, vegetables, & whole grains CAN prevent cancer.
* 3 - 4 million cases of cancer could be prevented annually.
MAKING POSITIVE CHANGES

...all agree that eating lots of fruits and vegetables
decrease the risk of cancer and other degenerative disease.

WHY MORE MATTERS
So, what are the recommendations?
Children should consume at least 5-7 servings of a wide variety of fruits and vegetables every day. The latest recommendation for adults is 7-13 servings per day. Athletes should consume more to fuel their body, reduce protein/tissue damage, and combat exercise induced oxidative stress!
