7+ servings of Fruits & Veggies per day Saves Lives

As some of you may know, I usually tell my patients to get at least 8-10+ servings of mostly veggies and a bit of fruit every day even though the guidelines have always been five to six servings.

Here's a study out of England today from 65,226 men and women showing the benefits of what I've been saying all along. 

Read this BBC article, it's a quick read.  I highly recommend it.

But to summarize:
"Fresh vegetables had the strongest protective effect, followed by salad and then fruit. Fruit juice conferred no benefit, while canned fruit appeared to increase the risk of death."
