Benefits for Longevity
Eating more fruits and vegetables possibly improves life longevity.
More evidence comes demonstrating that there is a link between eating fruits and vegetables and “all-cause mortality”. In a 6 year study, just 4% perished from “all causes” which guided researchers to suspect that better consumption of fruits and vegetables is associated with a reduction in "all-cause mortality"
. Seven (7) servings or more a day of fruits and vegetables showed the best return.
The issue of raw versus cooked is considered. (3)
Many Millville chiropractic patients want to live longer and healthier. There’s a link! Healthier living may well lead to longer living. Living healthier may lead to living longer.
