Medical science reminds us every day that good nutrition and good health go hand in hand, especially when it comes to the health benefits of eating fresh, raw fruits and vegetables. Researchers continue to find elements in fruits and vegetables - vitamins, and other antioxidants, phytochemicals and fibre - them seem to strengthen our immune systems, impede the development of lifestyle related disorders, and further contribute to good health and longevity.
Medical research also suggests that getting nutrients from WHOLE FOOD sources - real fruits and vegetables - is far superior to supplementing the diet with specific, isolated vitamins. This has led health authorities around the world to recommend that we eat at least 5-9 servings of fruits and vegetables every day for better health.
We need to eat more fruits and vegetables. In very real sense, our quality of life depends on it!
