The Benefits of Eating Fruits and Vegetables

The benefits of eating healthy Fresh Raw Fruits and Vegetables is so great that it has led health authorities like the National Cancer Institute, the American Heart Association, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to recommend that we eat at least 5-9 servings daily for better health.

Despite the growing medical evidence and all the resulting publicity, less than 10% of American adults eat at least 5 servings of fresh, raw fruits and vegetables daily. Those we do eat are forced to grow too quickly, picked before they are ripe, our soil is lacking the rich nutrients needed to pass along, and then when cooked leaving them with little benefits and no nutritional value at all. Largely as a result of our poor diets, Americans suffer a higher incidence of degenerative diseases like Cancer than any place else in the world. Why are these well known statistics not enough to convince most of us to be eating more fresh fruits and vegetables daily?
