How to reduce your death risk

42%. That’s the rate of risk of death reduction you gain by eating seven or more portions of fruits and vegetables a day. A recent 12-year study of over 65,000 people found that the more fruit and vegetables people ate, the less likely they were to die at any age. Eating seven or more portions of fresh fruits and vegetables reduced cancer by 25% and death by heart disease by 31%. Just eating up to three portions a day brought a 29% reduction in death from all causes. Interestingly, this study also showed that vegetables brought quadruple the benefits over fruit. Processed fruit juice brought no benefit at all and canned fruit increased risk of death by 17% per portion. Moral of this story? Eat more fresh fruits and vegetables.
