People who eat three or more servings of fruit and vegetables a day have a significantly lower risk of dying from stroke, heart disease, and all other causes, say researchers from Tulane University in New Orleans. The study of more than 9,000 adults revealed that people who ate three or more servings of fruit and veg a day were 42% less likely to have a fatal stroke, 27% less likely to die from cardiovascular disease, 24% less likely to die from ischemic heart disease, and 15% less likely to die from all other causes.
