Vegetables, Fruits and Health: The Good News Keeps Growing

Fruits and Vegetables

Everyone knows that fruits and vegetables are supposed to be good for you, but do you know why? They are important sources of 19 or more essential nutrients, including vitamins A, C, E, and folic acid; the minerals potassium and magnesium; and fiber. Research has shown that eating a diet rich in a variety of fruits and vegetables as part of an overall healthy diet may reduce the risk for serious diseases, such as stroke, coronary heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and certain cancers. Eating fruits and vegetables rich in potassium as part of an overall healthful diet may help to promote positive health outcomes1.
