Eat more fruits and veggies in the pursuit of happiness

 
Eat more fruits and veggies in the pursuit of happiness Eating seven portions of fruits and vegetables a day has been shown to improve mental well-being

Eat more fruits and veggies in the pursuit of happinessAccording to a new British study, finding happiness could be as easy as eating more fruits and vegetables.

That’s the conclusion of a study from the University of Warwick in the UK, which found that the more servings of fruits and vegetables people ate, the better their mental well-being.

For their research, scientists from Warwick and Dartmouth College in the US analyzed the eating habits of 80,000 people across Britain and found that well-being peaked at seven portions a day.

Meanwhile, the consumption of fruits and vegetables is dismal at best in the UK, as researchers point out that a quarter of the population eat just one portion or even less per day, while one-tenth of Britons are estimated to consume seven servings daily.

One portion is defined as 80 g.

The full results of their research is to be published in an upcoming issue of Social Indicators Research.

Meanwhile, another study published in the British Medical Journal found that eating more green, leafy vegetables can significantly reduce the risk of developing the medical scourge of the 21st century, type 2 diabetes.
