According to TIME (11/17, Ducharme), a CDC report published in the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report indicates that “the vast majority of Americans are not eating enough fruits and vegetables.”

The New York Daily News (11/17, Gibbs) reported that “an average 12% of Americans ate their daily recommended amount of fruit, while an average of less than 9% ate their daily recommended amount of vegetables in 2015, says” the report.

Enjoy 5 a day—eat at least 2 servings of fruit and at least 3 servings of vegetables each day (see box 8 for serving sizes).

Benefits of Having a Dog

Dog ownership may be linked to lower risk of dying from heart disease, study suggests

USA Today (11/18, Rossman) reported that research published in Scientific Reports suggests “having a dog could” be linked to “a lower risk of dying from cardiovascular disease.”

        Bloomberg News (11/17, Cortez) reported that investigators “analyzed the health records of 3.4 million people in” Sweden. The data indicated that people who owned a dog “were less likely to have cardiovascular disease or die from any cause during the 12 years covered by the research.”

TIME (11/17, MacMillan) reported that “the protective effect was” particularly “prominent for people living alone, who have been found to have a higher risk for early death than those who live with other people.”
