Foods That Can Increase Your Life Span

A study by Imperial College London says that eating 10 portions of fruit and vegetables a day is optimum for maximizing health benefits. They pooled data from 95 separate studies, analyzing around two million people’s eating habits in total.
The research found that eating green vegetables (such as spinach), yellow vegetables (such as peppers) and cruciferous vegetables (such as cauliflower) were linked to a lower risk of cancer. Eating apples, pears, citrus fruits, salad vegetables and cruciferous vegetables were linked to lower risks of heart disease and strokes.
The researchers also found that even small amounts of fruit and vegetables improved health, but more is even better. Although official NHS guidance that recommends eating 5-a-day has not changed, the study is encouraging to anyone who is considering increasing their intake beyond this.
