RAW VEGETABLES

Raw vegetables, roughly 1-2 ounces per day, associated with 8% lower risk of death over 10-18 years

Consumption of raw vegetables seems to reduce the risk of death over 10-18 years roughly twice as much as consumption of cooked vegetables when comparing quartiles according to a study the European Prospective Investigation Into Cancer and Nutrition looking at Fruit and Vegetable Consumption and Mortality (the EPIC cohort).

The one-fourth of people consuming the second most amount of raw vegetables, roughly 1-2 ounces of raw vegetables per day (23-50 grams, 2nd Quartile), were 8% less likely to die over the next 10-18 years compared to the one-fourth of people consuming the least amount of raw vegetables or 0-1 ounce per day (0-23 grams, 1st Quartile) according to this study.

By comparison, the one-fourth of people consuming the second most amount of cooked vegetables, roughly 1.8 to 3.2 ounces of cooked vegetables per day (50-91 grams, 2nd Quartile) were 4% less likely to die over the next 10-18 years compared to the one-fourth of people consuming the least amount of cooked vegetables or 0-1.8 ounces per day (0-50 grams, 1st Quartile).

RAW VEGETABLES

Raw vegetables, 1.8 to 3.5 ounces per day, associated with 15% lower risk of death over 10-18 years

The one-fourth of people consuming the third most amount of raw vegetables, roughly 1.8 to 3.5 ounces of raw vegetables per day (50-100 grams, 3rd Quartile), were 15% less likely to die over the next 10-18 years compared to the one-fourth of people consuming the least amount of raw vegetables or 0-1 ounce per day (0-23 grams, 1st Quartile) according to this study.

By comparison, the one-fourth of people consuming the third most amount of cooked vegetables, roughly 3.2 to 5.6 ounces of cooked vegetables per day (91-158 grams, 3rd Quartile), were 8% less likely to die over the next 10-18 years compared to the one-fourth of people consuming the least amount of cooked vegetables or 0-1.8 ounces per day (0-50 grams, 1st Quartile).

People eating 5 servings of fruits and vegetables per day lived 3.1 years longer

People who consumed one-half (0.5) serving of fruits and vegetables per day lived an average of one (1) years longer than those who never consumed fruits and vegetables according to a recent study which followed 38,221 men and 33,485 women who were 45- to 83-years-old for an average of 13 years.

People who consumed one (1) serving of fruits and vegetables per day lived an average of 1.7 years longer than those who never consumed fruits and vegetables.

FRUITS & VEGETABLES

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.”

RAW VEGETABLES

Raw vegetables, 3.5 to 27 ounces per day, associated with 16% lower risk of death over 10-18 years

The one-fourth of people consuming the most raw vegetables, roughly 3.5 to 27 ounces of raw vegetables per day (100-771 grams, 4th Quartile), were 16% less likely to die over the next 10-18 years compared to the one-fourth of people consuming the least amount of raw vegetables or 0-1 ounce per day (0-23 grams, 1st Quartile) according to this study.

By comparison, the one-fourth of people consuming roughly 5.6 to 27 ounces of cooked vegetables per day (158-773 grams, 4th Quartile) were 7% less likely to die over the next 10-18 years compared to the one-fourth of people consuming the least amount of cooked vegetables or 0-1.8 ounces per day (0-50 grams, 1st Quartile).

MILK

Women drinking 3 glasses of milk per day and one serving of veggies were 2.8X more likely to die

Women with a high milk consumption who consumed 3 or more glasses of milk per day and less than one serving of fruits and vegetables were 2.8 times more likely to die over some number of years compared to women with a low milk consumption who consumed less than one glass of milk per day according to a study that analyzed data from food frequency questionnaires completed by 61,420 women in a Swedish cohort (1987–1990 baseline) and 36,714 women from a second survey (1997).

“Dietary antioxidant intake [from fruits and vegetables], especially in women, seems to modify the elevated death rate associated with high milk consumption,” the authors of the study concluded.

VEGETARIANISM

Vegetarians who eat fish have 19% lower risk of dying during 5.8 year follow-up than non-vegetarians

Pescovegetarians—vegetarians who eat fish and seafood—had a 19% lower risk of dying during the 5.8 year follow-up than non-vegetarians according to a study from researchers at Loma Linda University in Loma Linda, California, USA.

This type of vegetarianism was associated with greater protection against death than being a semivegetarian who sometimes eat animal products (8% lower risk of dying), lacto-ovo vegetarians who eat eggs and milk but no meat (9% lower risk of dying), and vegans who eat no animal products at all (15% lower risk of dying).

FRUITS & VEGETABLES

People eating one fruit per day lived 1.6 years longer than those eating no fruit

People who consumed one serving of fruit per day lived an average of 1.6 years longer (1 year and 7 months longer) than those who never consumed fruit according to a recent study which followed 38,221 men and 33,485 women who were 45- to 83-years-old for an average of 13 years.

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.
