Read what the scientists have to say on the latest fruit and veg study

Yesterday the news went wild over the study from University College London that said that the 5 a day recommendation has been set too low.  Read what the scientists have to say via this link:

This study confirms that fruit and veg is beneficial to health and the message that we all should aim for ‘at least 5 a day’ is a good one.  Of course if you can manage to squeeze more in then there is only further benefit.

It is a good summary from people who understand epidemiological studies such as this and the effects of correcting for things like activity and smoking etc.

Message remains the same – eat all those yummy vegetables!
