Give strokes a dodge consume more fruit and vegetables

Fresh fruits and vegetables are now being called the elixir of health. New studies confirm it day after day. A new study suggests that eating more fruit and vegetables could let you live longer//.

Increasing the intake to more than five portions a day can reduce the risk of stroke by a 26 per cent.

The researchers said the high levels of potassium, folate, fibre and antioxidants in fruit and vegetables help in this direction.

Examples of "a portion" of fruit and vegetables include one banana, one medium-sized apple, seven cherry tomatoes, three heaped tablespoonfuls of peas, carrots or sweetcorn, and a handful of broccoli.

The figures emerged from an analysis of eight studies, involving more than 257,000 participants in Europe, the United States and Japan.

In the words of the researcher Dr He himself: "The average fruit and vegetable intake in most developed countries is about three servings per day, and current recommendations encourage five or more servings per day. Our results provide strong support for these recommendations. If these goals were achieved, stroke morbidity (illness) and mortality would be greatly reduced. Such diet modifications would also reduce other cardiovascular disease and some cancers.

Therefore adequate information has to be disseminated and proper information given to the masses and save their lives.
