Eating fruits and vegetables could be a lifesaver

By  | 

A new study suggests low consumption of fruits and vegetables may account for millions of deaths from heart attack and stroke every year.
Tufts University researchers looked at diet and medical data from 113 countries.
They estimate roughly one in 7 cardiovascular deaths could be attributed to not eating enough fruit, and one in 12 to low vegetable intake.
The study was led by researchers at Tufts University and presented at the meeting of the American Society for Nutrition.
