We are being bombarded with advice about the importance of increasing the amount of vegetables and fruits in our diets.
The American Heart Association, the American Institute for Cancer Research, the American Cancer Society, the American Diabetes Association, the National Institutes of Health, and the USDA all include increasing produce consumption as part of their dietary recommendations for disease prevention.
The scientific evidence continues to build that fruits and vegetables can materially affect our risk of getting a variety of diseases.
The link between
high produce consumption and reduced incidence of several kinds of cancer, heart
disease, and birth defects is well established. There is a growing body of research
that suggests links with several other conditions such as stroke, hypertension,
of this advice is pretty easy to live with. In the early days of concern about
eating right for the prevention of disease, some of the recommendations were pretty
disagreeable. There was a common sentiment that "I will eat anything save it be
health food" a few decades ago. Had they known that the ultimate health food was
what they were eating from their gardens, health food would never have gotten
a bad rap.
