7 servings of fruits and vegetables per day associated with 33% lower risk of death over 7.7 years

People who consumed seven (7) servings of fruits and vegetables per day were 33% less likely to die over the next 7.7 years than people eating less than one (1) serving per day according to a study from England.

This protective effect rose to 42% after excluding deaths that occurred during the first year.

“A robust inverse association exists between fruit and vegetable consumption and mortality, with benefits seen in up to 7+ portions daily,” the authors of the study concluded.

FRUITS & VEGETABLES

5 servings of fruits and vegetables per day associated with 26% lower risk of death over 4-26 years

People who consumed five (5) servings of fruits and vegetables per day were 26% less likely to die during a 4.6 to 26 year follow-up compared with people who had no daily consumption of fruit and vegetables according to a meta-analysis of 16 studies.

The decreased risk of death was mainly due to a reduction in death from cardiovascular disease, and less so from a reduction in death from cancer.

“For the reduction in total mortality, we found a threshold of around five servings a day of fruit and vegetables, after which the risk of death did not reduce further,” the paper notes.

“Overall, about 10-30% lower risk of all cause mortality was found in most prospective studies comparing highest with lowest fruit and vegetable consumption.”

“This meta-analysis provides further evidence that higher consumption of fruit and vegetables is associated with a lower risk of mortality from all causes, particularly from cardiovascular diseases.”

Consuming more than one serving of fruit per day was not associated with living significantly longer compared to those consuming one serving of fruit per day.

“Consumption of [more than one] 1 serving [of] fruit [per day] was not associated with a significant increase in survival compared with consumption of 1 serving [per day],” the paper notes.
