3. We’re Still Not Eating Enough Fruit and Vegetables
LikeWe know this is old news, but it’s a persistent problem. 4 servings (around 2 cups, or 150 g) of vegetables and 3 servings of fruit is how much we should eat daily, and this doesn’t include starchy vegetables like potatoes and fruit juices.
Those who don’t meet these daily amounts were found to be more likely to suffer from mouth, throat and lung cancer. Low fruit intake was also linked to breast and uterine cancers. By eating enough fruit and vegetables, you’re lowering the likelihood of developing the above-mentioned types of cancer by 5-9%.
