CNN (2/23, Vonberg) reports that a new study published by the International Journal of Epidemiology suggests that “eating 10 portions of fruit and vegetables a day could significantly reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke, cancer and early death.” Specifically, consuming about 800 grams of fruit and vegetables daily, twice the World Health Organization’s current recommendation, “was associated with a 24% reduced risk of heart disease, a 33% reduced risk of stroke, a 28% reduced risk of cardiovascular disease, a 13% reduced risk of total cancer, and a 31% reduction in dying prematurely,” compared to not eating fruits and vegetables at all.

TIME (2/23, Sifferlin) reports that the researchers “didn’t show why higher portions of fruits and vegetables can led to fewer deaths, but some of the basic nutrients in the produce can improve health.”
