Benefits for Bones
The more fruits and vegetables eaten, the higher the bone mineral density and the lower the osteoporosis risk in middle and older age.
(And for those of our Fort Wayne chiropractic care
patient community who may not love vegetables, you are in luck! Fruit tends to be more beneficial in this regard than vegetables.) Lower bone mineral density folks realize more promising results of eating more fruits and vegetables and a lower incidence of osteoporosis. (1)
Eat more fruit if nothing else!|At least up your fruit consumption, our Fort Wayne chiropractic clients!
Benefits for Inflammation Reduction
Variety in fruit and vegetable intake is associated with inflammation reduction.
The greater the variety, the greater the anti-inflammatory effect on the risk of coronary heart risk. C-reactive protein levels also lower. The quantity of fruits and vegetables did not appear to bother the results much. (2)
So eat lots of different types of fruits and vegetables!
Long life benefits.
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% died from “all causes” which lead researchers to speculate that higher consumption of fruits and vegetables is related to a reduction in "all-cause mortality"
. Seven (7) servings or more a day of fruits and vegetables is optimal.
The question of raw versus cooked is considered. (3)
Many Fort Wayne chiropractic patients want to live longer and healthier. There’s a connection! Healthier living may well lead to longer living. Living healthier may lead to living longer.
If you are just not too interested in eating fruits and vegetables, become childlike again. Retrain your brain!
