Scientists Say This Is The Right Way To Get Your Five-A-Day
A study has found that eating two portions of fruit and three portions of vegetables is the optimal way to get your five-a-day.
According to the study, eating this many portions of fruit and vegetables a day could help you to live longer.
This amount likely offers the most benefit in terms of prevention of major chronic disease and is a relatively achievable intake for the general public, Dong D Wang, lead study author.
For the study, the researchers examined data that represented nearly 2 million adults around the world.
They also found that not all fruits and vegetables offer the same benefit.
Peas, corn, potatoes and fruit juices were not associated with a reduced risk of death
