Mother did know best when she told you to eat your fruits and vegetables, according to a recent report aired on ABC News.  The story showed how while the consumption of fruits and vegetables has increased significantly over the past decade, only about a fourth of all Americans consumed at least three servings of vegetables daily—the recommended amount for optimum health.

The story was based on a report generated by the Centers for Disease Control’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.  They found that only about 26 percent of U.S. adults are eating three or more servings of vegetables a day, which has been shown in study after study to lower risks for stroke, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, Alzheimer’s disease, and heart disease.  Eating the proper amounts of fruits and vegetables each day can also reduce risks for certain types of cancers, eye disease, digestive problems, bone loss, and kidney stones. 

Eating vegetables raw showed the most benefit, as they contain biophotons, which are the smallest physical units of light that are stored in and used by all biological organisms on earth.  The study also noted that fruits should be eaten more sparingly than vegetables, as they can contain high levels of naturally occurring fructose, which can increase blood sugar levels.
