A Heavy Produce Diet Decreases Obesity And Diseases

Americans on a whole are not eating enough fruits and vegetables.

Nationwide surveys have found less than 11% of us are meeting the U.S.D.A. guidelines.

Alarmingly, about 62% of adults say they do not eat any whole fruit servings at all.

The government recommends adults eat at least two servings of fruit and at least three vegetable servings every day.

A diet high in produce has been linked to a decreased risk of obesity and diseases.

That is why the CDC and the "Produce for Better Health Foundation" are launching a new campaign today.

It is called "Fruits and Veggies - More Matters," and you can expect to start seeing parts of that campaign soon.
